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.

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.

Another Winner

Grove Farm CL
We seem to be very lucky with the sites that we choose to stay at. We were there for three and a half weeks, and although the weather was pretty awful at times the site was spot on. It is well maintained and Chris, Jan and their son couldn't have been more helpful, and having Sarfields Chocolaterie and Tea Room at the same location made it even better. There is the main field at the front of the site but because of the amount of rain received just prior to and after out arrival we were actually put on to semi hardstanding behind the greenhouse. For us this was actually better because we got the added benefit of the views to the east of the site. There is a toilet and washroom on site and is perfectly adequate. It is cleaned daily. There are two local pubs and the old Wharf cafe, all serving food. We only tried the Neville Arms and the Old Wharf. but food was good from both. We didn't try the Plough because we ran out of time before they opened after spending lockdown doing alterations. All in all a very nice site and we would be very happy to go back.

Grove Farm CL
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.
