About Midshires Way Campsite & Alpaca Farm

Suitable For

Glampers, campers, tents, campervans, caravans, adults (over 21 years). Children under 16 years old are not allowed on-site.


As the name suggests, the campsite is beside the Midshires Way long distance walking trail (some 230 miles in length) and forms a popular stopping point for ramblers along the route. Since it takes 10–15 minutes to walk into East Leake, walkers are well served for amenities too – there’s a CoOp supermarket, a range of cafés and eateries and takeaways that deliver to the campsite. There’s also a decent leisure centre (01509 852956) for rainy days, with a pool, badminton, tennis, a gym and more. Elsewhere, it’s a 15-minute drive into the market town of Loughborough (market days are Thursday and Saturday), where you can take tours of Taylor's Foundry (01509 212241), an impressive museum displaying bells dating back to 1785, or ride aboard steam trains on the Great Central Railway (01509 632323). It’s 25 minutes into the centre of Nottingham and 30 minutes or so into Leicester, where the National Space Centre (0116 261 0261) is a particularly time-consuming rainy day activity.

Food & Drink

There are four pubs within walking distance in East Leake, The Round Robin (0115 778 8168), which has its own micro brewery, being our pick of the bunch, as well as The Star Inn (01509 856480), a country pub in the opposite direction (25-minute walk). For better choices, however, it is worth the 15-minute drive into Loughborough.

Relaxed, clean and friendly

Lovely location for walking, well spaced and generous pitches. Great exercise field for the dog and some friendly alpacas to boot! Local amenities are a short walk away, very relaxing site to spend a weekend.

Amazing stay

Wow, what a beautiful place. Myself and partner had a brilliant 3 night stay. We stayed in one of the glamping pods. It was well equipped with everything we needed and beautifully decorated. Seeing the alpacas and horses in the fields everyday was a highlight for us. There were lovely pubs within walking distance and a bus stop to enable us to take a trip into Nottingham. We cannot fault anything with this place and enjoyed every moment spent there. We will definitely be back!!


Simply excellent. Exceptionally clean and everything you may need is provided. Perfect get away from it all.
