A new Caravan Club CL site, surrounded by the beautiful countryside of the Charnwood Forest and close to the new National Forest Way.
The site is:
- Has easy access,

The entrance to Bradgate Park, the home of Lady Jane Grey, the nine day Queen is just across from the site and a network of footpaths can be accessed without having to step foot on a road.
There are many local attractions and things to do in the area. Maps and local information can be found in a cabin on site, which also provides a drying area for wet coats and boots.
There are five hard or grass standings all with electric hook ups. We have four water points.
Chemical waste and grey water disposal on site.
We encourage recycling and there are bins provided for this purpose.
Well behaved children and dogs are welcome.
Three pubs are within easy walking distance of about one mile but there are others a short car ride away and if the weather is inclement. Maps and tourist information are available.
There is an award winning, Five star Gold accredited B&B (www.horseshoecottagefarm.com) with in two hundred yards, for family and friends to stay should there be a get together.
Recently returned from 5 nights on this site, access is through a locked gate which is well setback from the road to allow you to pull in to the entrance safely. The owner was very welcomingon arrival and helped us get on to our pitch. The site is spacious with 5 flat hard standings on thefar side & twin hard standings near the gate with a further hard standing for motor home use alsonear the gate. There is plenty of walking in the area, with Bradgate park just over the road andfootpaths to Swithland Wood, we also enjoyed good walks round Beacon Hill Country Park &Watermead Country park both not far away. The NT property Stoneywell is also worth a visit andthe Great Central Railway has a station in Rothley. Will certainly use the site again.

Bradgate Caravan Site .. another little Gem (Oct 2017)
We visited this CL 1st-9th October 2017. Tim Jee met us on our arrival. A flat field withdesignated areas plus hard standing and an extra hard standing was being prepared as wedeparted. We found t everything as Tim describes in the blurb on the website. Bradgate Park justacross the road. A wonderful place for walking, views and the deer. Stoneywell is a very differentNT place to visit. The Space Centre and Abbey Pumping Station kept us busy another day. Anexcellent location for walking and site-seeing. We definitely recommend this lovely CL.
