A secluded campsite to fall in love with

People seem to fall in love with Brook Meadow – particularly the staff! Fishing bailiff Mick had been coming to the site for years with his wife Pam before taking on his current role; and site manager Vanessa chose the campsite as the venue for her wedding reception before returning to work and live here with her family.

It does feel like a special place to camp. Perhaps it’s the sunsets over the lake? The cattle grazing peacefully in the neighbouring fields? The hundreds of stars clearly visible on a cloud-free night? Or perhaps it’s the philosophy of farmers Jasper and Mary who want people to come and enjoy their land. This even extends to providing free camping for groups of young people hiking and camping towards their Duke of Edinburgh awards.

It’s a peaceful, secluded site with 50 pitches over 15 acres and a five-acre fishing lake. Ducks waddle around and you might catch a glimpse of the resident wildlife – deer, hares, red kites – or hear owls hooting in the night. It feels (and is) very spacious. Some of the best pitches are around the fishing lake on the lower of the two fields (shared with three holiday chalets), although families with kids tend to opt for the top field for The Mound, which kids love to scramble on.

The site has a couple of high-adrenaline neighbours: Avalanche Adventures next door, where you can hire quad bikes or try your hand at clay pigeon shooting and other outdoor activities; and the Gliding Centre at Husbands Bosworth Airfield just down the road, where you can get a birds-eye view of the site as you drift by overhead.

The Owner Says

Brook Meadow is a family run holiday destination open all year. Situated on a working farm, set in 45 acres of trees our visitors are destined to have the perfect caravanning & camping experience. Brook Meadow also offers lodges, camping cabin and a glamping bell tent. You may hear the faint noise of a glider, farm vehicles or children playing, but otherwise you’ll forget all about ‘life outside’ as you drink in the view. We are proud to be family & pet friendly. Brook Meadow is located near Sibbertoft in the heart of rural Leicestershire. Well placed for visitors to enjoy the varied attractions and we endeavour to inspire with our passion for the local and surrounding areas. We also have thrilling experiences to offer on our doorstep with Avalanche Adventure, and the gliding club in easy walking distance too. Please explore our website for all the information you need to make the most of your stay with us. As a family and as a business, Brook Meadow is fully committed to being environmentally friendly and conserving wildlife. To ensure we maintain this commitment, we have worked holistically to uphold these ideals on many levels for many years. We installed photovoltaics to generate the electricity used on site, solar powered water heating, a wood chip boiler powers heating and hot water to the lodges and campsite facilities. Water consumption is reduced through rainwater harvesting and solar powered lighting has been fitted to the glamping tent. Even Mary's chickens have their own rainwater harvesting system in place and a solar powered electric fence to keep the fox away. Our best selling items are locally sourced firewood and the farmhouse ice cream. Produced locally thus reducing energy consumption with deliveries and supporting the rural economy. We've planted extensively to create a fantastic natural habitat for wildlife and we continue to plant hedging, trees and meadow flowers. 50 acres of trees have been planted to date. Camping offers a holiday with a low carbon footprint and you'll reap the health benefits too, clean air, uplifting sunsets, hearing the sights and sounds of leaves rustling and bird song as you immerse in nature, feeling the calming influence being next to the lake.

I’ve arrived with my camper for my first visit. I’ve chilled till I can’t chill anymore ! Can’t fault this place. The noises you here are happy laughter birds. Occasionally the tractors in the fields and the launching of gliders. I’ve found a happy place.

Response from Brook Meadow

Thank you for your kind review.  We look forward to welcoming you back to Brook Meadow soon, when you are ready to squeeze in some more relaxing :)

Absolute gem of a site! Fell in love!

This place is amazing! We camped 3 nights (grass, non electric pitch) and still felt we could have stayed longer & discovered more hidden gems on the site. Perfect for children of all ages. Choice of field or lake side camping. Pick your own pitch on arrival after reporting to reception to gain access & get maps etc. Field has an “organic play ground” - dropped logs & grass mounds- hours of fun climbing and hiding- imaginations running wild! There’s also pirate camp- camp under the mast! There’s a rope swing and wooden Wendy house on the lake side and endless hidden dens amongst the trees around the lake. Syndicate fishing members on one side & campers on the other. Washing up facilities are clean, bathrooms/toilets are kept clean, shower facilities are available and toasty warm! COVID measures include encouraged social distancing in shared areas. Hand sanitiser at washing up stations and sinks, and disinfectant wipes/spray available in each toilet and sink to clean before and after you use them. Pizza oven available some Saturday nights and cinema in the barn some nights too (although we didn’t get round to going, it’s a lovely idea) Fire pit rental available. Small shop in reception - toiletries, ice creams, snacks, marshmallows & bacon etc, small kids nets to buy for ‘fishing’ on the lake. The only thing is there’s no ice for cool boxes, but there’s a co-op in sibbertoft so a quick drive to stock up on ice was fine. Highly recommend this site to families and groups alike, I struggle to see how it could be improved. In love!


We stayed a couple nights for our first family camping trip and even though we arrived in a gale, we were welcomed by friendly and incredibly helpful staff. Rob eventually helped put our tent up in the wind and frequently came round to check on everyone, brought fire pits and wood around and the setting is beautiful and peaceful. Will be coming again!!

Fabulous & friendly

We stayed from the 17th August for a couple of nights. We had a wonderful stay, the setting was beautiful. We nestled into a corner of the field and there was plenty of space for us. Facilities such as toilets and showers were very good. The lake is a bonus, so peaceful. The staff were welcoming and helpful and available. Rob was always nipping around checking if campers were ok, he helped us with our fire and brought the fire pit and extra logs to the tent at night. We watched a film too in the outdoor cinema. We will be back again!

Definitely go again

Friendly and helpful staff who helped us with everything we needed brought us wood for our fire and set it up for us, great facilities very clean and in a great location and lots to do nearby.

Beautiful but could do better

We stayed for 4 nights at Brook Meadow. On the plus side it has a beautiful setting with the lake and fields. The staff there were very friendly and helpful and my kids loved the outdoor cinema. The free ice pops went down extremely well. The showers were clean and hot and there was plenty of hand sanitiser available. Unfortunately lots of people chose to ignore the 10pm curfew and carried on chatting/playing music into the small hours. In all fairness, the site manager sorted out the worst offenders but it was frustrating to have to call on his services every night (perhaps the curse of the Covid19 campers). I’d personally have liked more sinks in the shower block and a shelf or baskets in which to put my things as inevitably the area around the sinks got very wet. The shop is very small and I think they could make much more of this. As it was we had to make separate trips to the village shops for a pint of milk. I would have also like the option of somewhere to refreeze our ice packs.

Beautiful lakeside campsite with very friendly people in the office and super clean wash block

I loved the lake which was wonderful to walk right round in the evening. Nice choice of where to pitch, lots of space for children to play (logs to climb on, rope swing, Wendy house, football field, trees to climb). Fire pits to hire, lovely ice cream, run in an eco way, adventure sports next door great for my teenage boys.

A wonderful place to visit!

The best campsite I’ve camped at! Wonderful lake side view, beautiful setting & the staff, who were helpful & friendly. My friend & I were camping with our 2 children for just for one night & the rain was torrential. Rob & the manager of the campsite went above & beyond to help us & keep us dry & warm. I want to say a big thank you for looking after us. The campsite has immaculate toilet & washing facilities, which had all the necessary hand sanitizer stations. The lodges looked fabulous & I will definitely be returning with my husband to go fishing & have a relaxing time. Thank you to Brook Meadow for a wonderful stay!

Idyllic getaway from the fast pace of life....beautiful surroundings

Brook Meadow was absolutely beautiful, restful and made camping a huge pleasure. The showers, toilets and dishwashing facilities were spotless (especially important during covid 19), the welcome was incredibly warming and friendly and Rob goes above and beyond to ensure everyone alike has a fabulous time during their stay. A fire pit and starter kit were delivered to the tent with a smile and good banter and the chilled family atmosphere of the site was a most safe and reassuring feeling, its size made everything easily accessible and they even put on a film once or twice a week for the kiddies and later for adults, superb. Located within 10 minutes of lovely Market Harborough town and the 10 locks of foxes locks where you can spend a day walking, eating, and just enjoying the spectacle. I would love to come back and try out a cabin sometime, they looked fabulous and had a private lakeside area with rope swing and the like to keep the family entertained. Overall couldn't fault it, marvellous place, highly recommend.

Lovely site.

Great site. Quiet, friendly, clean and lovely setting. Warden Rob ciuld not have done more for us.

Sweet countryside holiday

The place was simply amazing for our small family of 2A and 2children. The Nuthatch cabin was a home away from home feel, and the owners seem to have tastefully designed it, plus lots of love. There was free coffee and tea bags, hot water bottles, and plenty of space to put up the clothes. Upon booking I had requested bed linen but had been worried that those would not be enough in case the nights were cold, but to my surprise the staff provided us with a feathery duvet, and tons of pillows to lay the most regal of dreams. The nuthatch has lake views no matter where you’re sitting, and no campers are allowed nearby. Will hopefully be back soon, for as long as the government doesn’t lock us up again in our homes.

Great site, nothing is too much trouble

The site is really well run, and the team are always trying to go above and beyond to accommodate you. The layout of the site is good in that it’s not all open and there are parts that are more secluded. However it’s extremely well maintained and the toilets and showers were spotless. The weekend cinema was a nice touch. Would recommend

Fabulous facilities and accommodating staff

We're just back from a gorgeous weekend at Brook Meadow. A brilliantly organised campsite which balances closeness to nature (camp fires, thrashing pikes, dragon flies, woods to walk in after 4pm, beautiful lake, hedgerows) with great organisation, facilities and staff. All the coronavirus measures were helpful. Such a great vibe with everyone respecting noise limitations but still having lotsa fun. Staff were so friendly, helpful and accommodating (even went so far as to leave the site to buy us some eggs when their hens had underlaid!). An outdoor movie screening on the Saturday night took the weekend close to perfection. It's over two hours from home in York, but we'll be back.

Great campsite - Clean and friendly with good facilities

We camped with 3 families for 2 nights down by the lakeside. It was very well kept and constantly cleaned. We rented a firepit for both nights and everyone had a great time. On the Sat evening they put on Peter Rabbit for the kids on a large screen and then Mama Mia later on which went down well. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Beautiful clean friendly site

This was the only site in the UK with a space after the easing of lockdown so we took our chances, and we were very pleasantly surprised. The location is beautiful, the lake, the quiet, the sunsets, the lovely walk around the lake. The toilet blocks were immaculate, with hand gel, alcohol wipes, disinfectant spray and towels everywhere for us to use, and they were constantly cleaned. The reception was very friendly and helpful, showing us local walks and offering to transport our fire pit to our pitch. "Magic" Rob the warden was also on hand to help if needed and his friendly banter was really nice. The pizza van visit on the Saturday was also quite an event, with pizzas cooked on site. The camping areas were level and tidily mown, and we found a little sheltered corner for our tent next to the lake in the sun/shade which was really pleasant. You need to be aware that large groups and gatherings use the big field and there were several while we were there, but the noise didn't disturb us where we were. There were plenty of recycling bins and the washing up facilities were easily accessible. All in all, a perfect place to do a spot of camping! Thank you team!

Fantastic Site, lovely people

Great to site with some stunning scenery. Immaculate facilities that seemed to be being constantly cleaned by a very friendly chap. Site Warden Rob was a too bloke. The two ladies in reception were friendly and very friendly. I would highly recommend this site and can't really fault it.

Brilliant site

Had a fantastic weekend at brook meadow, lovely clean site and facilities and staff were really helpful and great. Definitely recommend

Great stay highly recommend

We arrived a bit early but that wasn't a problem. Everyone was friendly and helpful from the receptionist to the warden. We went for a break and a bit of fishing and enjoyed both. Everything was done to make our stay safe, the toilet/shower block was impeccable clean, with hand sanitizer before entering and spotlessly clean inside as was the washing up area. The hot water doesn't run out either!! The fishing was great and the bailiffs were friendly and helpful. We will return and it's well worth a visit.

Great local campsite.

Two great camping fields with one next to the lake. We went over an August weekend and whilst there were quite a few in we certainly were not cramped on space, it felt a long way from busy let alone packed. Could probably do with a couple more loos for the ‘morning rush’ but this wasn’t a major problem and the facilities were very clean. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Great to be able to walk the dog amongst the trees at the back of the site. A well run campsite on our doorstep, we’ll be back.

Great lakeside location with great facilities

Off-lead woodland walks for the dog from the lake. Fire pits and disposable BBQs available in the shop (plus bason, sausages etc if you're caught short on supplies). Will definitely return. Lovely mix of families, couples and fishermen so no one group dominates.

Perfect relaxing break

The pirates camp was perfect for our group of three tents. We took up all the space in that area. It gave us lots of space and privacy. It’s perfect if you are a group with a number of tents. Very enjoyable experience and the weather was amazing

Peace and stunning Glamping and cabin

We’ve just had 3 nights here and loved it The Glamping tent was stunning and the cabin was perfect Each place had been put together with such care and attention it really is lovely

Highly Recommended

We have just returned from Brook Meadow and were more than pleasantly surprised when we pitched up at the lake, in beautiful site in wonderful country setting and glorious weather to top it off.  We could honestly not complain about a thing, a nice welcome, relaxed approach to where we could camp and a trusting nature to 'let me know if/how much you fish' was really what we had come away for.  The landscape is really spectacular with wildlife all around and there is nothing quite like sitting by the lake at sunset, drinking a few beverages, watching fish jump, swallows circle and the odd kingsfisher making an appearance just to top it off.  The showering facilities were the best we have ever experienced - even in other european countries with spotless and well thought of amenities to make our stay enjoyable. We would definitely recommend staying here and with the adventure locals and lovely Market Harborough nearby, you can relax or be as active as you wish.

Thumbs up.

I've just got back from a lovely weekend at Brook Meadow with my godsons (8 & 11) and their parents . It's a fantastic well kept site with nice, clean facilities and Vanessa was very welcoming. There is a glider school near by and we had great fun watching them fly (quietly!) over head and got some free aerobatic displays thrown in !! There was plenty of space for the boys to let off steam and we got a really good couple of nights sleep. Plenty of lovely places to visit nearby. I'm being quite harsh with the 4 but it's rare anything earns a 5 with me !!

Great family friendly campsite

A lovely well run campsite with easy access to the motorway. We stayed over the august bank holiday and it was very busy but still nice and quiet at night. I would highly recommend this site for families looking for a relaxing short break.

Nice quiet campsite

We stayed here just for a night on our way to Wales. The campsite was nice and quiet, with plenty of space between pitches. There are plenty of facilities for the size of the site, which were kept very clean.
