Lovely well maintained site

Hill Top Farm Shop CL
Difficult review as we loved this site and the owner is friendly and the field extremely well maintained, a lovely toilet, shop and cafe on site. However what we didn't like was that the CL field is also used as an overflow car park for the shop and cafe, and most of the staff park in it, so there are cars coming and going all day between 8:30 and 4 and it feels a little insecure as people wander from their cars to look around the caravans, etc. That also means the beautiful view often overlooks a line of parked cars. Negatives aside it's well priced, great views and fantastic walks, a very friendly owner and the cafe and shop that cause the car parking problem are absolutely first rate with great cooked food and lovely local produce in the shop. In our opinion the only thing to change to make this perfect is to stop the CL field doubling as a car park. Although being busy after this last year it is understandable the owner wants to maximise his business options. A hard one to judge, but as a CL user we didn't like that aspect.

An absolute gem of a site

Hill Top Farm Shop CL
We stayed here for 2 nights and will definitely return. The owner is really friendly and came over to welcome us and see that we were happy. The site has ample pitches all overlooking a beautiful valley. There is also a farm shop stocked with lovely fresh local produce including craft beers, bread, milk, meat and cheeses. There is also a wonderful cafe with undercover and outside tables where you can have breakfast, lunch or a coffee and some homemade cake while looking out to the sheep, goats & ponies. Just 1.7 miles from the town center this is a great place to stop over or to check out the local area.

Nice Site

Hill Top Farm Shop CL
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

Hill Top Farm Shop CL
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
