Peace and Tranquility

Grove Farm CL
Such a peaceful site, we were the first outfit this year to pitch on grass. We had a view of sheep in the field next door, each pitch has their own water tap . Chris is always about and is very helpful. The Cafe/ Chocolatier next door and Farm Shop are very useful. There are 2 dog walks direct from site across the fields, with maps/ directions provided. All in all an excellent site which we will use again if we are in the area.

Glorious

Grove Farm CL
Firstly, Chris is such a lovely man. Very helpful and kind. Grove Farm is the loveliest cl site we've been to. Fantastic views over the fields (at the rear hardstandings). Public footpath for a walk to Hinkley and the cafe in the basin, together with the village pub. The site is clean, specious abd relaxing when we arrived the front CL was still muddy due to severe rain we've all experienced recently. Chris put us at tge rear with magnificent views. We had our own water tap, bins and great WiFi. The site has a toilet and facilities to was up. An added bonus is the small farm shop, cafe and garden nursery. The weather fir our week was truly glorious and we left with heavy hearts wishing we could have stayed longer. We've been 3 times now; we'll be back....soon!

Excellent site and owner

Grove Farm CL
Easy to find site and excellent facilities. Chris was not there when we arrived but was there within a few minutes of phoning him. He put us on a hard standing pitch due to the amount of rain there had been and it was perfect with our own water and electricity supplies and beautiful views across fields Chris was always available should we have needed him. The toilet which was available was spotless and there was also a chocolatier/cafe not far from where we had pitched plus a farm shop. Would definitely return when next in the area. Highly recommended.

What a site, what service

Grove Farm CL
We stayed on this site in October on the way back from the Norfolk Broads. We thought that we had followed the directions but we took the first turning off the A46 travelling south signed Kinoulton, then we turned into Kinoulton Lane - sounds logical! Unfortunately this lane is plagued with potholes and we duly hit one and our motor mover jammed onto the nearside tyre. What now? We phoned the site and Chris came out immediately to help, saw what the problem was and went to get tools. He managed to get the motor mover off the tyre and reset it and then led us to his site. Now, you just don't get this level of service and help everyday and this was on the day after he had celebrated his Golden Wedding anniversary. The site is excellent, we went on the hard standing round the back of the barn as there had been a lot of rain previously; that suited us fine as we were straight out onto the walks and our 2 dogs loved it. The views are great, the walks Chris gave us are very good. Chris was always around if needed. The CL proper (all grass) was well laid out, water to each pitch and well tended. We travelled around quite a bit and it is a lovely area; our daughter lives in West Bridgford and it was really quick and easy to get there. We will certainly stay here again but we won't go down Kinoulton Lane again; A606 and into Hickling is the best way. Thank you Chris for coming to our rescue and for keeping a truly excellent CL.

Brilliant!

Grove Farm CL
We stayed here for five nights over August Bank Holiday. We cannot fault and the place is a credit to Chris and Jan. We booked well in advance using email. We were answered promptly and efficiently. The week leading upto our stay and on arrival day Chris contacted us by text to check arrival times etc., all spot on. When we arrived we were not on the main CL as we are a heavy motorhome, and Chris’ grass was far too immaculate for us to ruin. Chris guided us around to far side of greenhouse onto a hardstanding area but with grass, own tap and bins. Plus a little further back from road (not that it is busy or intrusive road), and lovely open countryside views, so we were delighted. We were near the car park for the Chocolatier cafe/shop, plant shop and newly opened farm shop but didn’t feel uncomfortable and not unduly bothered by these businesses. We could also watch the parachutes from Langar airport practising their jumps from planes. Chris was an impeccable host, regularly checking up on us but not intrusive, offering home grown tomatoes and cucumbers. He was a star as he lent us a ladder to facilitate a repair we had to do. The toilet was spot on - immaculately kept and checked daily. Only thing to be aware the toilet is not right next to main CL field, and is a little walk to get to it. The footpaths and walking opportunities in the area are extensive especially with the canal which we informed does go all the way to Nottingham one way, and Grantham the other. The Wharf cafe in the village is excellent, and also do yummy take out cakes too. Chocolatier is also well worth popping in. Farm shop was in its first week but lady who runs it farms in the village and is planning to get her own meat into shop soon. The bacon we did get was superb. All in all as it says at top - brilliant- highly recommend.
