Overview

This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.

Lovely small, quiet site at the old Tong station.

This review is for Tonge Station

Lovely small, quiet site at the old Tong station. The railway track is now a cycle way which runs right next to the campsite. Flat, level ground. Firm and well drained. Some hard standing available. Dog friendly. Good walking on the cycle way. Quite close to the Donington-Park motor racing circuit so you can hear the cars at times. Also on the approach to East Midlands airport. Despite this the site has a nice rural feel and the occasional plane flying over never really bothered us.

Lovely site. Very friendly owners.

This review is for Tonge Station

Lovely site. Very friendly owners. Beautiful view of the floodlit church on the hill and very spacious peaceful pitches. There's some background noise from the airport and traffic but it doesn't intrude or spoil the site in any way. The cycle way to derby (10 miles!) runs behind the site, but any easy walk or cycle to the nearby village of Melbourne is worth it for a visit to Ye Olde Packhorse pub. Their meals are excellent and great value for money.

Our first camp site after joining.

This review is for Tonge Station

Our first camp site after joining. Clearly a good choice, both for the club and access to such a clean, well kept site. Whilst facilities are limited what they provide is well maintained and exceptionally clean. the sustran walk, just over the hedge is excellent for family cycle ride, dog walks, etc. being a few miles off the motorway makes it an excellent overnight stop. We will be using this again both as an overnight on longer trips and short breaks.
