Why stay here ...

Grove Farm CL is a secure site located on a small farm in the beautiful Vale of Belvoir. We are an adult only site and welcome well behaved dogs. The site is half a mile from the Grantham canal ideal for walker and cyclists alike. There are several footpaths crisscrossing the area. Two good local pubs are within half a mile.

The site is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area  being sited between Nottingham, Leicester and Melton Mowbray. We are twenty minutes from Melton, the rural food capital of the East Midlands, with it's famous Stilton Cheese and Pork Pies.

The National Water Sports Centre, Trent Bridge Cricket Ground and Nottingham Forest Football Club is a 25 minute ride away. King Richard 111 Visitor Centre, Leicester Cathedral and the National Space Centre are within a 40 minute drive. The Loughborough Great Central Railway is a 25 minute drive away. Both Nottingham and Leicester have Park & Ride facilities.

The two local pubs are the Plough Inn at Hickling which is the nearest and the Neville Arms at Kinoulton which provides a greater specialist food experience.

New this Spring - we have a Chocolate shop opening this Spring (2020) with a tea room attached and forthcoming chocolate making classes. We also have an established flower and gift shop with pots, hanging baskets & bedding plants for sale.

Great site, made to feel welcome. It was good to be back out and about.

This was our first weekend away after lockdown and it was a great place to start. Met by Chris, who was both welcoming and informative and continued to be so throughout. Good dog walks and surrounded by great places to visit. Would reccomend and will definately be returning.

Lovely Relaxing Stay

Just returned from a few days at this beautifully kept site. The perfect spot for a post Lockdown break, set in spacious, flat grounds and surrounded by beautiful countryside. The owner, Chris, gives a warm welcome and keeps everything in tiptop condition. There is a very nice tea room closeby, two pubs within a mile and plenty of country walks. Only a short drive to Melton Mowbray. Already hoping to return next year.

Premier CL

If there was a Premier league of cos we would include Grove Farm at Kinoulton. Very well maintained. Fine flat grass field, with electric and water points around the field, practical waste facilities and easy access. Plus a friendly owner who gave us fresh tomatoes from his greenhouse. A very pleasant 6 day stay.

An excellent CL for walkers

This was our second stay at Grove Farm and it was just as good as the first. Chris replied quickly to me email request and arrival times etc were confirmed. Upon arrival Chris arrived to greet us and was very welcoming confirming the facilities and there was local factsheet as well with walks, pubs and things to do listed. This site is ideal for walks or bike rides along the Grantham Canal which is why we chose it and the 2 local villages (Hickling and Kinoulton) both have good pubs and there is a nice café in Hickling next to the Canal. In summary a great little CL, friendly hosts and a nice relaxing location. We are already planning to stay again hopefully in the next couple of months.
