Nice Site

Just spent 10 days at this site lovely owner Martin welcomed us and told us to set up at any empty pitch in any direction we preferred. Good farm shop and cafe on site for essentials, it rained a lot but site drained really well and had no problems getting off site when it was time to leave. Water and Chemical disposal first class. conclusion, a great CL.

Martins Masterpiece

This is our 1st visit and not our last! The site is easy to find and no problems getting on to the allocated pitches.The site is large and has a slight slope with all the basic disposal facilities that are immaculate and well signed posted.The views are good and has sheep in the fields that look very well maintained.There is a café on site with a wonderful farm shop that is well stocked . Martin and his staff are very welcoming and helpful.There are toilets that can be used by campers next to the farm shop.The shop is popular and busy but not noisy for the campers.Melton Mowbray is within walking distance(20 min) and there are some walks from the site. Thanks to Martin and Staff for a great weekend. Ray and Grace

Lovely site with excellent cafe and farm shop

This site is beautifully maintained and is very easy to access. It has nice views across the valley and dogs can be walked from the site. It is very quiet, even when the adjacent farm shop and cafe is open. Although we did not eat there, the menu looks good and it is obviously very popular with local people. The shop has a good range of bread, vegetables and meat including lamb from the farm. Martin, the owner, is very welcoming and helpful. We will happily return next time we visit the area.

Great Stopover.

Staying for one night travelling up to Scotland in our camper. Reasonably quiet location. Farm shop and facilities are new and look good. Some odours from the animals. Ground was dry. Needed some levelling. Would definitely come back again.
