Our fourth visit to this great little site. Have to say we were a bit put out to find that the site fees had gone up by a third since our last visit earlier this year, It IS still worth the money; But at £20 a night they could throw in the showers instead of charging £1 extra for them. At this level it’s also time Bill took card payments – we don’t all carry £100 in cash.
Whilst there is a road running along one side of the site, it is not an issue; traffic is not too busy and very scarce at night. Best to choose pitch at the back of the site or in the field if you’re a light sleeper.
Facilities well adequate and always clean.
Had an excellent Chinese take-away from in the village, and a lovely meal at the Hunting Lodge hotel. Would definitely go back to both.
Lots of things to do in the area. We went specifically for the Great Central Railway gala, for which the site is very close; also visit Bradgate Park, Thornton Reservoir for a pleasant walk; Abbey Pumping Station in Leicester, or take the bus from the Birstall Park & Ride into Leicester for the Highcross shopping centre or Richard 3rd exhibition.
Another pleasant stay; keep ‘our’ pitch warm for next year!
