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 CL , would recommend

Stayed 3 nights here. Great welcome from Chris with information sheets. Good Covid precautions in place. Quiet, relaxing and easy walking distance of two pubs. Bus stop outside (didn’t use so cant comment on the service). Would recommend.

Fantastic choice for our maiden voyage

Thanks to Chris and Jan, just back from 2 nights at this beautiful CL site as first timers in our new caravan. Water and 16 amp EHU to each pitch. Waste disposal and bins near to the CL field. Very relaxed site, dog walks in the fields behind the farm and either way down the road to the nearby villages (with pubs and the Wharf tea room on the canal) . The on site 'Sarsfield' tea room/cafe is fantastic and brand new. We used it for a superb afternoon tea (a must) and takeaway coffees (they have a proper machine) during the stay. It also specializes in making chocolate and you can do a tasting... Despite being local we will be back as this site is perfect for us. I also know have a favorite pitch number but not sharing lol In summary, a fantastic CL choice for our first outing that ensured we enjoyed the experience in the new van with our two dogs...

Welcoming and Peacful

Welcome on arrival was lovely. We were shown to our pitch which had great views over the country side. Chris the owner made sure the pitch was right for us and checked that we had settled in OK. Our dogs loved the local walks straight from site, which were mown and easy to navigate. The site is very well kept and the chocolate themed café on site is a real bonus. The village is an easy walk across the fields to the pub and tea room.

lovely peaceful site, great stay.

warm welcome from Chris, given hard standing as heavy thunderstorms forecast ( did not happen). 11/12 August 2020. site very well kept & clean with good dog walks, info sheets of routes given. Everything that could be done to make the stay excellent was done. Cafe/ chocolatier on site worth the short walk, chocolates to die for. walks in the surrounding area including local pub & canal. If you are lucky as when you visit, you may get fresh Tomatoes warm from greenhouse. throughly recommend this site & we will be back

Weekend Break

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at this lovely CL. We were met by Chris on our arrival. The site is level with large pitches. Everything is very well maintained and clean. Great for dog walking and lovely friendly pubs within easy walking distance. The canal is also close for walking, and the Old Wharf cafe in Hickling is great. Will definitely be staying here again.
