Wooded Oasis

The site is lovely and peaceful in a wooded oasis. The tranquility of this place is lovely and there are oodles of lovely walks from the site. Great to escape the hussle and bustle of everyday life and be close to nature. There are some hard standing pitches and some grass pitches. I was on a small hard standing pitch because my van is small. There are larger pitches too. The site facilities include a wash up area, wc, waste disposal point, waste bins. For people with dogs there are some chickens in a pen near the toilets. Just off site across the lane is a place to walk your dogs. You do have to duck under a log and watch out for cars parked on it, as that means you may get shot as they will be culling deer. If your dogs are hunters then you may want to keep them on a lead, as the scent of deer and other animals is strong. Bradgate Country Park is walking distance from the site (allow 20 minutes) and it is full of tame deer and other surprises. A great place for a picnic. Toilets, cafe's and plenty of ice cream are there too. Stoneywell (National Trust) arts and crafts house is just up the road and has beautiful gardens and gives a lovely insight into the arts and crafts movement. Beacon Hill is nearby too and great for a nice walk. You do have to pay for parking there. This area is just north of Leicester city and very posh. The most common cars seemed to be Range Rovers and Porsches. The houses in Newtown Linford have beautifully kept gardens and either large detached houses or pretty little cottages. Would I go back and stay here again? Absolutely and I probably will.
