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.

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.

Really nice site - will come back

This is a very nice site in a beautiful part of the South Notts Countryside. We were here just for one night, wish it could have been more. Chris very welcoming. The information sheet given to us on arrival was very useful. The CL is grass; well maintained and level. As we were the only people on the site we were offered gravel hard standing which was fine for us. There is a nice walk to Hickling and along the towpath of the Grantham canal, at the wharf there is a cafe and a decent pub opposite which I guess is lively later in the year. At Kinoulton there is another pub. Nottingham, West Bridgford very close by for all their attractions; this place is ideal for Trent Bridge Cricket ground!

Countryside Site

We stayed here for one night as we had swapped our motorhome for a different one and wanted to test everything whilst being near to the dealer we bought from. Warm welcome form Chris and helpful advice, The site is adjacent to a country road but we were not disturbed by traffic at all. Easy access to major roads into Leicester and Nottingham. Note this site does not have a shower, there is a toilet and wash basin only. The site is gated and each pitch has a key for the gate. One of the nearby pubs has shut but in the opposite direction, a 10 minute walk, in Hickling, is the Plough Inn, we were made very welcome and chose ribs from the menu, they came with chunky slaw, great chips and battered onion rings, absolutely delicious and a generous helping. Great choice of beers and drinks, there is a pizza menu and they do takeaway pizzas, recommend this pub. There seem to be lots of lovely walks nearby and there is also a tearoom in Hickling. Opposite the pub is Hickling Basin which is part of the Grantham Canal, very pretty with resident ducks and swans

Excellent 3 night stay

Just spent a pleasant 3 nights at Grove farm chilling out. Upon arriving on site Chris could not of been more helpful and the onsite facilities are very good including freshly mowed grass and nice level pitches. Chris has thought of everything from your own gate key (nice to know all is secure when you are away from site) to an information sheet with a couple of local walks and places of interest. Nice coffee shop beside the canal in Hickling and pub opposite all within a 10 mins walking distance from site. Thanks again Chris we hope to return again soon.
