Why stay here ...

Buttercup Meadows CL site is a peaceful half acre meadow situated on the edge of the village and right next to a small river where you can relax and unwind. With a dedicated doggy exercise area, we hope it will appeal to pet owners too. Located a mere 3 miles south of the picturesque market town of Market Harborough, the caravan park is ideal for those who enjoy a slow wander in rolling agricultural countryside. It is also a 2.5 mile walk across the fields to Kelmarsh Hall, which has an excellent tea room and walled garden to explore as well as hosting many major events throughout the year.

In the centre of Clipston village there is a beautiful school building that was established in 1667 and has been a school ever since. The famous Naseby battlefield is neighbouring the village too. A little further afield just 15 miles you will find Althorpe House, the former home of Princess Diana and Holdenby House, where King Charles the 1st was held before eventually being beheaded having lost the battle of Naseby. There are many nearby walks offering stunning views over Northamptonshire and Leicestershire to the North.

Nearby activities include an off-roading centre, a gliding club, horse riding, golf, day boat hire, cycle hire at Pitsford Reservouir and upmarket shopping in Market Harborough. All within a 10 minute drive.

There is an excellent pub 700 yards away from the site in the village serving good food, it was established in 1627.

The service point will provide fresh water, waste water disposal and toilet waste emptying facilities. The dog exercise area has a 4 foot perimeter fence. This is an adult only site.

Advance booking is requested although last minute bookings may be available upon request. Feel free to call, email or check out our website.

We will do our very best to make your visit enjoyable and would welcome any practical feedback in order that we make this a special place that you would like to come back to again.

There are many positives with this site starting from the lovely owners who make you feel so welcome. We were presented with 2 cup cakes which we thought was a nice touch. Jane & Andrew have a wealth of knowledge about the local area so we were never stuck for idea's of where to visit. Clipston is lovely village with a good pub for eats & drinks. There are many footpaths around the village so plenty of walks to hand. On site there is a fenced off dog area which our Bella loved. We will return.

Enjoyable week

Buttercup Meadow
Nice greeting on arrival. Very well looked after site. Friendly owners, lots of places to visit within half an hour of Buttercup Meadow in Clioston. Great food in the local pub and good doggie facilities. Day narrow boats can be hired from Market Harborough but need to be booked in advance. Thoroughly enjoyable stay. Quiet site.

Walking and cycling around Clipston

Buttercup Meadow
We spent 3 nights here in June. Jane and Andrew were very welcoming, helpful and easy to contact. We wanted a relaxing few days walking and cycling and Andrew gave us some excellent advice for sites in the area. We cycled to Market Harborough and up through Foxton locks to see the boat lift. We also walked around sites of the Naseby battle. We thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet and will look forward to returning. It is also ideally located next to the picturesque village with its very own pub. This was exactly what we look for in a CL.

A lovely CL with a loely host :)

Buttercup Meadow
Easy to find on the road into Clipston from the A508. The site is well maintained with level pitches and nicely cut grass. We parked parallel to the road close to the water point. Lovely views of the fields and hills so lots of things to spot. Although just off the road into the village the site was very quiet as not many cars seem to use the road. The lady who owns the site, Jane Austin, was there to greet us and we she gave us a couple of delicious cup cakes along with a walking map of the area. The weather was very hot so all our good intentions of walking went out the window and we sat and chilled instead. The tv reception was good and although there was no electric hook up the open site meant the solar panel on the van kept the leisure battery topped up nicely. We will definitely go back again so we can check out the walks, cycling and the local village pub :)
