Why stay here ...

Celia and Garry would like to welcome you to Southview CL, set on the Leicestershire border with Northamptonshire you can expect to overlook beautiful countryside views and see regular ariel display from Kites and Buzzards.

Southview is situated on the A4304 about 8 miles from Junction 20 of the M1 and 5 miles from the historic market town of Market Harborough where the old grammar school takes centre stage.

The site is set out over two tiers and has five level 6m wide x 10m long hardstanding pitches, three pitches on the top tier and two on the lower tier, each pitch has its own 16-amp EHU, drinking water and grey waste disposal point. Our CDP is connected to a septic tank and therefor please use Elsan green or similar. Electric is metered and loaded via a pre-pay card system meaning you only pay for the electricity you use. Alternatively go green and use your solar at no cost.

In the next village (1.7 miles) you will find a dog friendly pub, shop and Chinese takeaway
Within a few miles are several good pubs and restaurants.

We are on a local bus route with buses into Market Harborough.

As Market Harborough is on the Midland mainline you can get to London in about one hour and Leicester in about 20 minutes.

Places of interest include:

  • Grade 2 listed Foxton Locks home to the longest, steepest staircase flight of locks in Britain, if you enjoy a long walk with a pub or café at the turn around point this can be achieved from site mostly along canal banks and towpaths.

This is why we stay at CL sites

Southview
From arrival on site, Garry was there to meet and great us. Excellent layout with first class service pitches nicely spaced. Beautiful panoramic views from every pitch. Metered electric hook-up which is only right in the current climate. Local walks and great foodie places to eat nearby. Make sure to check with Garry which places are good to eat at. You won't be disappointed and neither were we. Thanks Garry for making my 60th a memorable stay! David & Rachel

Perfect CL!

Southview
What a perfect CL! The views are stunning over the valley and there is plenty of space for all the pitches to appreciate the view. Very peaceful, and Gary was super welcoming and had lots of useful local advice. Facilities are spotless and Gary is very fair with the meter for the electric. Foxton Locks is walkable (!!) but you can easily park there too and is a must-visit. Market Harborough is also a lovely town to explore. Wish we were staying longer but will definitely return. Thank you.

A Super Pitch for the price of a CL!

Southview
Lovely and quiet CL site with good sized level hard standing pitches supplied with individual: electric supply, water tap and grey waste drain. Great views across the valley with nice sunrises on a clear day. Garry was there to meet met me on arrival and was very accommodating especially over the late change of arrival day due to a member of the family being in hospital. The site is in a lovely part of the country with the up market centres of: Market Harborough (10 minutes drive), Oundle, Stamford, Uppingham and Oakham (30-40 minutes drive) all within easy reach. We will be staying here again.

Gem of a site (it's actually level)

Southview
We spent a week at Southview in September, thoroughly enjoyed the views and the peace and quiet. The pitches are actually level, easy to hook up water to the tap at each pitch. I mention this only because too many sites we visit that is not true. We had a strong 5G signal so I was able to watch the Rugby World Cup easily. The area around this site is just beautiful, Foxton Locks nearby acted as our walking base with a couple of great pubs. We walked there in 90 minutes. Gary was super friendly and marked ours and my brother-in-laws pitches so we were next to each other, in advance of us arriving. He recommended a couple of local dog-friendly pubs. The Red Lion nearby gets my vote for Pie-Tuesdays. The ease of emptying the loo It's always a good sign of how good a site is - here it is perfect. This is our new base for this area, which we intend to spend a lot more time exploring thanks to Southview.
