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.

Definitely on our favourite list

Grove Farm CL
The site is immaculate, it is clear that Chris takes a lot of pride in the presentation of the site. Local information about places of interest, pubs, walks, etc all available on returnable laminated sheets. Each pitch has its own water supply, grey waste goes to water the trees. The site is secure with a locked gate. The chocolatier/coffee shop on site we give 5 star rating with its bespoke chocolate and delicious food. Also an award winning florist on site. Beautiful area to explore in the Vale of Belvoir/ Grantham canal. The food in the Plough in Hickling is highly recommended. Hearty pub food, good pint, just want we wanted after 18 holes of golf at the nearby Six hills golf course. Thankyou Chris and Jan for making us feel very welcome. We will certainly be returning to your lovely site.

Great site for visiting the Vale of Belvoir

Grove Farm CL
This is a really well maintained, level site with good access from a relatively quiet road. Water supply on each pitch is a bonus, as is Wi-Fi. Chris has made sure everything has been considered, including laminated walk suggestions and other helpful information. The on-site cafe/chocolaterie is also great. We used the site for a week of walking the Grantham Canal and it was great that this is easily accessed within a short walk of the site. If only all CLs were like this one.

What Cl caravanning is all about

Grove Farm CL
We had visited Grove Farm a couple of years ago and were so happy and relaxed during our stay we wanted to return. Chris as always, is friendly, helpful and kind. We knew what to do on arrival as he'd let us know by text. The pitches are lovely and now are fully serviced, as each one has its on water tap and grey water can be emptied around the trees. The backdrop of nursery, flower shop and tearooms fits in so sympathetically with the views over the fields. Two pubs at either end of the site offer great food; the old wharf tearooms/cafe is a must for visitors. Set on the canal, easily walked from the site, is a popular place for cyclists and visitors. A tranquil, friendly site not to missed.

Accessible and well looked after

Grove Farm CL
Chris asked us to let him know our arrival time, and the gate was open when we got there, He arrived soon afterwards and approved our siting plans. The site is well kept with short grass, and the directions are clear (forget the SatNav!). We didn't visit the florist or the cafe / chocolate makers on the same site. Immediate surroundings rather flat, but directions available for several local walks. Hickling is a very attractive village, and the canal on a sunlit evening was spectacular. Further afield, we enjoyed visiting Southwell and Melton Mowbray, and there is some attractive hilly countryside nearby. The campers' toilet is immaculate, but a bit of a walk from the site.

Very peaceful and relaxing stay

Grove Farm CL
Lovely little CL, very peaceful with great views over the countryside from the hard-standing for motorhomes. Chris was very helpful and checked in with us every day to make sure we had what we needed, and that everything was ok. The tea rooms at the Chocolate Shop were lovely, though sadly we didn't get the opportunity to view chocolate being made. It would definitely be worth a return visit for a chocolate-making workshop! Double-check your SatNav routing before setting off - the site is actually halfway between two villages and both mine and my sister's SatNav told us we'd arrived when we got to the pub in Kinoulton about half a mile away, lol.
