Why stay here ...

A beautiful, idyllic, family friendly setting in sunny Leicestershire.

Nestled within the gated J & L Garden Centre site, The J and L Caravan Park is located in a secluded field less than a minutes walk from The Mountain Restaurant which is fully licensed and Garden Centre.

The Mountain Resturant provides the perfect eating place for you. We serve breakfast from 9am until midday and full menu from 9am until 3.30pm. On Fridays we serve the full menu from 9am to 10pm. Massive chunks of cake and homemade scones are served all day until 5pm. A mini me menu is available for children too. The restaurant is also dog friendly and has excellent, free, secure wifi. Free wifi is also available in the Garden Centre.

Why not try one of Brocklebys Farmshop famous Pork Pies?

It is simply a stunning area to investigate and we can supply you with all the local tourist information you require for your stay.

J and L Caravan Park is located on the fringes of The Vale of Belvoir.

This area provides an array of walks, cycle routes, restaurants and pubs along with the stunning Belvoir Castle.

There are over 65 different types of eatery to be sampled within a 5 mile radius of Melton Mowbray so food for all!

We have a bus stop at the top of the Garden Centre drive which provides direct links to Nottingham, Leicester,  Oakham and of course Melton Mowbray.

Peaceful weekend

Spent a few nights here as a lone camper. I felt good that there is site security and the pitches are away from the road so it is quiet at night (there seem to be a good population of owls after dark). The pitches are very large, have both grass and hardstanding, and separated by conifer hedges, which are due to be reduced slightly as they are blocking out the evening sunshine. There is a bench by a large pond for additional peace and quiet, and the restaurant does the largest cake portions I have ever seen. Lots of good walks from the site. The only downside is the waste disposal, but I just travelled home with a full grey waste water tank in my motorhome and emptied it at home. The special offer for including electricity in July and August was a good bonus.

a one nighter

just stayed one night on site seemed well maintained good size pitches with metered electric this is the first time I have came across this and it is a worry what you can be charged well it cost less than 50p in the end but no heating and hot water was only on for 10 mins and watched the telly for a few hours so maybe it was all right but if it was say late or early season the cost must get higher and we have been in more superior cl sites for a lot less cash but cant complain the shop and restaurant was top nosh at fair prices and a good selection of garden stuff for presents back home

Nice quiet site with adjacent garden centre and cafe

We are relatively local and we're looking for a Leicestershire CL site to shake down a new to us caravan. Arrived after 5 so the reception which is the till for for garden centre was closed. Pulled onto allocated pitch and found they had kindly put some electric on the meter for us. Sorted out the lecky card the next morning and they loaned us a length of rope- dog lead not put in! Breakfast in the cafe was really nice with local produce (not cheap at £7.50) but good quality. Cafe very popular as a destination for cycle clubs and bikers which gave a good atmosphere. Cakes looked lovely but too full from breakfast. My only issue was the dirty water/ chem toilet discharge which is an actual toilet with lid and cover in an open compound. Had to lift up the waste master onto the seat which was a pain and managed to splash over my shoes. There is an inspection chamber adjacent but no lifters etc. Just a thought for improvement. Otherwise staff were really pleasant and helpful. Proved the van is watertight. It hissed it down most of the weekend. Valid point from another reviewer re the stakes in the grass opposite the pitches if you have a long rig. Two nights electric cost £2.30. One couple arriving as we left were not happy to pay for electric but it is on their website. All in all a comfortable CL site.

Overnight CL

We chose this CL on the way home from a caravan touring holiday. The addition of a restuarant and other facilities was an added attraction. The hard standings were also good after an extremely wet period. However, for us, we felt that the entrance to the individual pitches was very restrictied by the narrow track. In addition, the grass area opposite being sectioned off with wooden posts made caravan manoeuvering difficult . In our opinion, this site is better suited to motorhomes than caravans as laid out at time of our visit.

Peace and quiet

Stayed on this CL for the second time this year. The second weekend in November was wet and windy, but we had a great time. We put more money on the electric card this time, due to using the heating all night. Very friendly staff as always. Already planning on visiting this CL next year.
