Brook Meadow
Sibbertoft, England
1 acre
A secluded lakeside campsite to fall in love with
People seem to fall in love with Brook Meadow. And there's no need to take our word for it – just check out it's five star reviews. 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 and a handful of glamping options spread over 15 acres and around 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 lakeside Nuthatch Cabin and the Out of Africa-themed bell tent are the romantic options. Both offer picturesque views of the lake and have plenty of their own space; suitable for couples or families of up to four. You can get a taste of farm life by helping Mary collect eggs from the site's resident chickens or join in with an occasionally-available farm tour (just register your interest at reception). Off site, there are 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. After all the excitement, the peace and quiet of site is the perfect place to relax. Sit around the campfire and enjoy a BBQ dinner or take your camping chairs to the semi-outdoor cinema in the open-sided barn where family favourites are screened.

From the host
Brook Meadow is a multi-award winning family run holiday site open all year round. The breath taking 5 acre lake looks like a place of natural beauty.  With 20 acres designated for holidaying in the heart of the working farm you can enjoy the space and tranquillity of the setting and the variety of accommodation and activities on offer. As well as an idyllic location for camping, caravanning, and fishing Brook Meadow also offers three stunning self-catering lodges, a lakeside cabin, "Out of Africa"-themed glamping and a vintage airstream if you fancy glampstreaming! Our standout accommodation has gained wide recognition, is design led and unique to Brook Meadow.  The campsite is informal, no regimented pitches yet cosy areas for groups to camp. Set three fields back from the road in the heart of the farm you may hear the faint noise of a glider overhead, farm vehicles or children playing, but otherwise you’ll likely forget all about ‘life outside’ as you drink in the restful lakeside setting. Brook Meadow has maintained it’s eco principles since conception with improvements continuing to enhance the eco friendly facilities and site. We plant hedging, meadow flowers and trees, use solar heated water, phorovoltechics, renewable fuel, a ground source heat pump, rain water harvesting, pre-loved antiques, reclaimed materials, up-cycled finds and our play area is very much organic. We pride ourselves on providing a high level of service. We have an attentive full time site warden, Magic Rob and owners living on site to attend to your needs. Follow us on Facebook and we will keep you up to date with fantastic local events to coincide with your visit.
