Our Certificated Location
The caravan site is a good base for those looking for a rural retreat. All pitches are located within the farm itself and have access to full electric hook up, running water and recycling and waste disposal.
We welcome children and dogs on a lead and encourage you to explore the farm and woodlands; take a stroll towards the oak tree (there's a bench at the top!) to get a view of the spectacular surrounding areas and plan your next ramble! Our CL season runs from Easter - October - weather dependant and subject to availability.

Caravan Club member reviews
"First time we have ever stopped on a CL site after 18 years of caravaning what a surprise we got. Owners Lynn and Richard ever so friendly, site was well kept, we ended up staying longer than expected, and returned again following weekend. Would def recommend this site and would return again next year."
"It is beautifully maintained. A lovely touch was we were greeted by the owners with gift wrapped home made biscuits. We would certainly come back if we are in the area again."
"The site is very well maintained & the grass is the best we have ever seen on a touring site... Its a brilliant location for National Forest area in Charnwood & also Loughborough. The owners are very welcoming & made us feel very much at home. We will definitely go back & would recommend this site."
"The owners are really great and friendly. Great communication before and on arrival. Easy to find and approach, we highly recommend it. PS the chocolate brownies are amazing!!!!"
