AA Campsite of the Year England

Eye Kettleby Lakes, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire

A haven for lovers of coarse fishing and walking, this long-established leisure destination, located in the hamlet of Eye Kettleby, provides very high standards. The outdoor areas are exceptional; guests can expect to find water features, nature areas, winding paths through beautiful designated walking areas, well-maintained roads and good clear signage throughout the park.The setting and landscaping of the nine fishing lakes is stunning and the considered and colourful planting really enhances the whole park.

Accommodation is located in lodges, smart wooden pods in a glamping forest and well laid-out touring fields. Pitches are well-spaced, immaculately maintained and very private with mature hedging between them; the majority are fully serviced. All facilities, including toilets, showers, washrooms and waste disposal areas, are of a very high standard and kept spotlessly clean.

A fine Scandinavian log building houses the stylish reception area, a well-stocked shop, a café with an inviting alfresco seating area, and a refurbished clubhouse where regular entertainment is provided. Impressive ongoing investment and refurbishment since the park joined the AA Pennant Scheme in 2018 has seen the well-deserved achievement of coveted Platinum status for 2020 and the Campsite of the Year award for England.
