Overview

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 or 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.

Really friendly well run site for adults.

This review is for Barford Top Camping & Caravan Site

Really friendly well run site for adults. Stunning location overlooking the valley and sunsets. Shower and toilets are new and kept beautifully clean. We didn't use the seating in the barn but it would be great if you get rained off. Backs onto local road with occasional fast traffic but it was quiet most of the time and at night. Site is generally level but on the grass we needed ramps just to lift us a bit. Lots and lots of local walks for dogs including down to Foxton locks which we did with only a few short stretches of local road and the rest on footpaths. Local pubs within walking distance and lots of choice at Foxton locks. We certainly hope to return

This review is for Barford Top Camping & Caravan Site

Well kept site with very welcoming owners. Good base to visit this area. We enjoyed our stay. Wistow has a lovely 'Rural Craft Centre' with a good tea room. The bell at Gumley is very welcoming and does very good well priced food. Views from this site are extensive as it sits on a ridge. There is no dog walk on site at the moment but plenty of local footpaths. Care needed when walking on the road which is not at all busy, but carries fast traffic. Grass pitches have the best views but all good. The 'Barn' is especially useful for campers as it has settees and a large table and chairs plus sink etc for campers use. It also houses lovely new showers and toilets.(One for the men and one for the ladies!) The hosts, Wendy and Maurice, are especially welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. A lovely site.

This review is for Barford Top Camping & Caravan Site

After a warm welcome from Wendy we were able to select a pitch from those available and had a guided tour of the site and facilities. The shower block was still under construction but immaculately clean and the showers proved to be excellent. The pitches were level and well maintained and hook-up was straightforward. Wendy and Maurice could not have been more helpful and welcoming. We opted to stay for an extra night because we loved the site and all it offered. Uninterrupted views over the rolling hills of Leicestershire, sunsets and stars were our idea of perfection. By day we enjoyed walks around the area and along the Leicester arm of the Grand Union canal including the impressive flight of locks at Foxton. In the evening we barbecued in a rural idyll! We ate on site every day as the views were unsurpassable but there were a number of pubs fairly nearby and even an Indian Restaurant that delivers to the site! We will return! This is exactly what a CS should be.
