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!

A golf course is within walking distance and fishing lakes a 5 mile drive away.

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.

Petrol stations, supermarkets, and the lovely Regal Cinema are all within a 5 minute drive.

What a nice Pie

J and L Caravan Park
The site was easy to find with good links from the M, booking in was a breeze, as long as you arrive before 5pm, not sure of process after 5pm. The electric was included in the price. It is well laid out and it is obvious the current owners have plans to expand the site, with additional pitches created and grass planted in between, although not yet grown so quite muddy in places (was a very wet weekend). It was lovely and quite although there is a schools sports field behind the hedge at the top end where the 5 CL pitches are. The down side is (as mentioned in previous reviews). There is no disposal point for grey waste unless you lift and balance the waste carrier on the toilet bowl, however the staff where friendly and helpful in assisting with grey water disposal. The drinking water tap is currently halfway between pitch 1 and the chemical waste, recycling and bin compound and there is no path to it so a very muddy experience especially around the tap. In addition to this a new entrance to the garden centre / restaurant from the campsite is in progress but currently the entrance / exit is to the rear of pitch 1, not sure of the owners plans in this respect but they are looking to build a shower block. There is a separate Bakery on site which sells some fantastic pies including the famous Melton Mowbray and I can certainly recommend their Moo & Blue pie.

J and L Caravan Park
Easy to find,friendly face when we were pitching up to see if we were ok,gates were a bit tight driving in and out.lovely view,clean,tidy,close to bus stop,had lovely breakfast at the cafe.only thing is needs a bigger sign on campsite entrance to say for campers only as random people were walking about when we were trying to have a bbq staring at us and saying hello when we were trying to chill out,also they were walking from the back of the cafe doing the same thing,groups of people,not very impressed for security and privacy,hopefully will change as it’s a lovely place.

Peaceful weekend

J and L Caravan Park
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

J and L Caravan Park
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
