Why stay here ...

Heronbrook CL is a secure site located on a small farm.

We are a family site and welcome well behaved dogs. We have sheep and other animals on the farm so please be responsible with your dogs.

The site is half a mile from the Grantham canal, ideal for walkers and cyclists alike. The canal footpath leads you to Cotgrave Country Park to the east and West Bridgford to the west.

There are several footpaths crisscrossing the area.

Three good local pubs are within half a mile.The three local pubs are the Rose & Crown, The Manvers in Cotgrave and The Sheperds at Stragglethorpe.

The site is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area being situated in the centre of Nottingham, Leicester, Newark and Melton Mowbray. We are twenty minutes from Melton, the rural food capital of the East Midlands with its famous Stilton Cheese and Pork Pies. We are twenty minutes from Newark on the recently renovated A46 with Newark Castle and the fabulous quaint old shops.

Nottingham City Centre, The National Water Sports Centre, Trent Bridge Cricket Ground, Notts County Football Club and Nottingham Forest Football Club are all a 15 minute ride away.

Leicester's King Richard III 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.

Lovely CL

CL is as described, directions very clear and signage also. Pitch positions not very clear and all ehu points are on one side which could make it crowded. Generally very quiet except for light aircraft from the local airfield. We didn't see owners but used the envelope system to pay. Bus stop at end of drive but also for caravanners there is a park and ride behind the restaurant down the road. Called a pocket P and R. Buses every 20 mins into Nottingham and West Bridgford. Motorhomers might find the track quite a walk to the bus, about half a mile. (The P and R is height restricted.) Lots to do in area. A word of warning on leaving the site. The gate is wide but the lane is narrow and with the hedge well grown we found it difficlt getting our outfit out. I had to reverse twice. Next time I will tow the unit to the gate, detach and motor mover through gate. We will certainly use again.

Basic CL in peaceful location.

Stayed on this CL after a period of exceptionally wet weather, but thankfully the hard standing area was large enough for us to "share" with 2 other outfits. We didn't meet the owners, but found the payment envelopes in the shed, thank you. The site is level and well maintained, access to the pubs in Cotgrave is easy (The Rose & Crown was very welcoming and served excellent food). The National Water Sports Centre at Holme Pierre Pont is a short cycle ride away (1 hr on foot). We hope to return soon.

Wedding preparations!

We arrived out of the blue to find a huge marquee in the field and preparations in progress for a wedding at the weekend, so we started to drive away, but the friendly owner waylaid us and said we'd be fine there for one night. He came and made sure we had everything we wanted in an adjacent field. It was a nice level, grassy field, with pleasant views, and we had electricity and access to water etc. And of course our evening's entertainment was watching the continuing preparations: the beautiful flowers arriving (the groom's mother is a florist), and all the drink, too. A young man had to spend the night in a minibus guarding it all! The icing on the cake (as it were) was that the groom's father took us into the marquee, which was all beautifully laid out and decorated. It looked wonderful! What a lucky couple! All the very best to them! (I think this would be a very pleasant, well-organised site to stay at in normal circumstances, and very near the Geological Walk at the British Geological Society, which is well worth a visit.)

Peaceful

We have stayed on this site several times over the last couple of years, (Handy for relatives in the area) Access is easy off the good local roads leading to major trunk routes. Lots to see and do in the surrounding area. The owners are very nice and helpful. Would recommend this site for weekend and longer stays. Great for young children (love the animals).Great bar food just down the road at The Shepherd.

Weekend Retreat

We were attending a local geocaching event and this site saved us the hassle of traveling across Nottingham each day. Site is well maintened and has envolopes in the cabin to fill out and put your payment in so you are not running around searchingfor the owner or worse still disturbing them when they have made the place so welcoming. As soon as we arrived a cheerful gent came around to check we had all we needed and after a short chat he left us to get sorted. The rest of the weekend saw us with just sheep and the usual wildlife for company. Great site, so peaceful yet excellent road links to get you into Nottingham in minutes.
