Finding us and getting here 

By Car 

For local traffic you can approach us from two directions: one through Beeby over the bridge with the church on your right following the road around and after half a mile we are on the right  . Coming down the hill from South Croxton we are on the left with the Shepherds huts entrance first and then the main camping and fishing car park a little later on your left.

Further afield we are close to the A46 which links us to the M1 and also from the Peterborough direction we are close to the A47 which links to the A1 .

From Leicester city centre we are 22 mins by car. 

Please note that the post code takes you a little past the site going up the hill towards South Croxton.

By Bike and Foot 

Bicycle

The roads srrounding us are popular with local cyclists . We are just off Route 48 which is part of the National Cyle Network which goes through Syston, a small town near us by the A46.

We are also near many local walks that take you in all directions across the local fields and countryside . We are approx 3miles away from the Midshires way and happy to collect you from the nearest village to us by prior arrangement if you need somewhere to stay for the night !

By train and Bus

Train

Our nearest local train station is in Syston which is easy to get a taxi from it is approx a 12 min journey to our site .

 

Leicester city station ( London - Leicester is 65 mins on a direct train ) is also close with taxi ranks outside and is a 25mins journey to us . 

The site also has a bus stop immediately outside serviced by the Centre Bus 100, a route from Melton Mowbray to Leicester ( just request to stop) This also passes through Syston if you wanted a connection from the train station .
