Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We booked to stay for a relaxing break over a weekend as we liked the look of the waterside pitches and we wasn't disappointed. The pitches are extremely spacious, the hosts are friendly and very helpful. The views of the lake and surrounding areas are...lovely and you are only a few minutes drive from Market Harborough where the town is thriving with shops. Although we didn't dine in the cafe we did pop for a coffee, the staff were friendly and the cafe was clean. We enjoyed our short stay so much that we booked in for an extra night and we would've stayed longer work permitting, we will definitely return.More

This site is not family friendly whatsoever infact it s the complete opposite !the family site is a piece of ground roughly a quarter size of a football field sectioned into plots and believe me this is where you have to stay .Access to the...lakes and fields are denied to children at all times !This site is geared up for fishing only yet they have the audacity to call it a family friendly site !!!! Being penned in this site you were made to feel like lepers and frowned upon for daring to bring children with you .Overall the site is picturesque but unfortunately due to having the kids with you you are not allowed to walk there. Rest assured myself and the 2 other families that came along with us will never return there ever again .Basically you pay good money to be cooped up like cattle and watch the elite roam free....Shocking!!@^More

Lovely lake but unfortunately lots of the fish have mouth damage. It's quite upsetting. Tea room is very dated which is probably why it attracts a lot of very old people and smells a bit of piss. Food is mass produced, very average snd overpriced....I found a long hair in my bacon and egg sandwich and watched one of the waitress's sneeze twice in her hands then serve cake without washing them. No access to get close to the fishing pegs and when the bailiff was questioned about this he said 'if you can't walk, you probably shouldn't go fishing'.More

We stayed here due to the fishing lakes the pitch was huge that is the positives…. The negatives The paths were uneven and difficult if you have mobility problems, the Wendy house ( toilet & shower) was clean but a large room but the smallest...of shower cubicles, it was a bit tired in areas, the tearoom was quaint not a lot of choice we opted for the special board just three choices, Chips, egg & GAMMON … we got a few chips, salad , egg & cold HAM not Gammon as stated ….Then we had guests a family of rats in broad daylight and a sleepless night and noise under our van all night led us to leave early very disappointed ☹️More

We spent the week at this lovely family owned venue. The fish were all in wonderful condition. I caught my PB mirror carp at 15lbs. The staff were all really friendly and welcoming. Gorgeous little shop on site selling essentials, gifts, fishing bait, antiques and...also has cycle/mobility scooter hire. The tea room is a delight, hubby enjoyed the carrot cake. Spotlessly clean facilities. Can’t wait to return.More

We stayed here for 20 nights in our motorhome, such a lovely place. Nice sized fully serviced pitches and really clean amenities. The staff are all fantastic, they are so friendly and helpful. The restaurant on site is excellent, if you want a coffee ,...breakfast or lunch the choice is good and the food is very reasonably priced and very tasty. If you haven’t tried the Sunday lunches give it a go and the puddings are delicious too. We have stayed here before and will definitely be back, thank you all so much for your hospitality, see you in the summer, stay safe, kind regards, Ali &AnnMore

Called in for a coffee (Sunday 11th July) and were greeted by such a polite and helpful young lady. We'd just come in off the Brampton Valley Way where my girlfriend had fallen over and grazed her knee. The young waitress rushed off and moments...later came back with a large sticking plaster. Couldn't have been more helpful and sympathetic. Cafe looking v.smart and v.organised these days and coffee is best for miles!More
