Leicestershire's rural camping & glamping site 9.3 Pitchup rating
A camping & glamping stay in Medbourne will ensure you experience one of Britain’s best kept village secrets. Nestling in the heart of the Welland Valley, Medbourne is one of the prettiest villages in England, perfect for a rural stay in the rolling Leicestershire countryside. The village itself is a place which hasn’t been ruined by modern life! There are quaint cottages with thatched roofs, beautiful chocolate box views - a village green, cricket pitch & sports field, and on match days, you can watch the leather hit the willow whilst enjoying a pint from the sports club which is open to all Rural Relaxing camping guests, in the corner of the sports field there's a children's playground for younger ones to enjoy and behind the tennis courts a conservation area and small lake - spot the swans & ducks.
The new POTTING SHED & COFFEE HUT is open on Saturday & Sunday mornings during the main season and offers hot drinks & tasty pain aux chocolate, croissants & other delights. We also have an honesty box system so guests can enjoy items in the welcome cabin, soft drinks, biscuits, crisps etc. There's also items on a "borrow and bring back" basis so if you need extra bits, we're sure to have it! In the welcome cabin you will find charging points for most devices as well as fridges for guests to use. There is also a dining cabin for you to book exclusively if the weather is poor.
Well behaved dogs are welcome on site but regret, not in glamping units, (dogs must be on leads when on site and walked off site, check the T&C's for breeds), we also allow fires - in fire pits providing they are off the ground & only ever used by responsible adults whilst adhering to our terms and conditions on fire use & our fire procedure. No smoking or fires in any of the accommodation units or near the public areas.
Not much disturbs the peace here in Medbourne apart from the babbling brook or blackbird song, what'smore it's a 5 minute walk to a lovely riverside pub, The Nevill Arms which serves excellent cuisine & fine wines & real ales. A café at the rear of the pub serves breakfast, lunch afternoon tea, the Nevill is open 7 days. The village shop & Post Office sells essential items including home baked bread, milk, eggs, bacon, sausages, newspapers etc.and you are assured of a warm welcome here.
The village boasts much historical architecture too and a walk round is worth it, there are some lovely walks (seek out the Blaston track, a field road from Medbourne to Blaston, perfect for dog walking & is a great “off road” cycle track, or walk the hill up to Nevill Holt and be inspired with the incredible views over the valley. It's a special place with much to offer & you won't be disappointed.
