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.

On site we have a Chocolatier with an attached tearoom. This Summer (2022), we have Joseph opening his plant sales business. We also have Sophie with her flower and gift shop.

Lovely we’ll kept site

Grove Farm CL
Stayed for a week and could easily have stayed longer, we were met by Chris the owner after notifying him of our arrival time. Chris gave us our gate key and our pitch location, water and electric on each pitch the grey water we were told to use to water the trees behind the van as they’ve hardly had any rainfall. Lovely clean toilet and washing up sink near by. The site is very well kept by Chris and as a lovely gesture he came round with fresh tomatoes he’d grown and wouldn’t take payment. Would definitely recommend if your looking for somewhere in this area and it’s only a short drive to lots of attractions in the area, we used the park and ride at Cosgrave about 5 miles away to go to Nottingham. Would definitely use again, thank you Chris.

Lovely Site

Grove Farm CL
We have stayed at this lovely CL several times now and it never disappoints. We always receive a warm welcome from owner Chris. The site is exceptionally well kept and Sarsfields Choclatirier and Sophie's flower shop on this spacious site are a real bonus. The walks direct from Grove Farm are enjoyable for both us and our dogs. The village pub and tea room is a easy walk away.

What a gem

Grove Farm CL
We are on our way to Scotland from the south coast and have spent 3 nights in this lovely CL. We were met on arrival by Chris the owner who gave us detailed laminated sheets of local places of interest. The site is a large flat well manicured grass area with each of the 5 pitches having their own water and electricity supply. I can't comment on shower and toilet facilities as we prefer to use our own. The site is within easy reach of a park and ride for Nottingham and the steam railway at Loughborough is a short drive away. Yes we will be back.

A Real Gem

Grove Farm CL
People that book this site are asked to ring Chris (the owner) approximately 30 minutes before arrival to ensure that he is there to greet you. On arrival you are met with an extremely smart gated grass paddock with the whole site being very smart with easy access and egress. Each pitch had its own water supply which was a bonus, there was a nearby chemical disposal and recycycling area. Caravan Club members also have access to a toilet and wash up area. The site is in the countryside and sits between the villages of Kinoulton and Hickling. On arrival Chris provides you with plasticised sheets with essential and useful contact information and also one of a series of differing walks that can be accomplished. On site there is Sarsfields, a wonderful choclatier and tea rooms, Sofie’s Flowers and Gardens by Joseph which was not yet up and running. Down the road in Hickling, there are tea rooms and the Plough Inn by the canal. This is a wonderful area for cycling, and there are plenty of them!! Chris is always busying himself around the site and is easy to talk to if you want anything or just to pass the time of day, his wife Jan also likes to check that everything is ok with your stay and again is very pleasant to talk to. We enjoyed ourselves so much here that we extended our stay. It was also very nice to have a text message on the way home to apologise for missing us on our departure (we’d had to leave early due to the length of journey). We’d like to think Chris and Jan for their hospitality and if we’re in the area again we love to stay.
