Stanton Lakes: Pitch 11 on campsite with great views

General

  • Dog-friendly, adults-only site by a lake on the edge of Stoney Stanton
  • A 20-minute drive to Leicester and the Bosworth Battlefield site
  • Lakeside restaurant/bar on site; open-water swimming in summer

Looking for a Leicestershire site where you can indulge a love of watersports? Stanton Lakes, an adults-only place on the edge of Stoney Stanton, could be the place for you…

One of the big attractions around here for adventurous types is the UK’s national diving centre at Stoney Cove – it’s within easy walking distance for those planning some scuba diving training. And if you’re not quite looking to get down that deep in the water? Open-water swimming is available twice a week at Stanton Lakes itself during the summer (you’ll need to book ahead for these sessions; please note no-one is allowed in the lake unless taking part in organised swimming sessions).

There are no rules to say you have to be in the water to enjoy it, of course – you’re most welcome simply to take a stroll around the main lake and wildlife pond on site. Or how about soaking up the scenery while installed at a terrace table outside the lakeside bar with a coffee or something stronger in hand? The attached Peppervine restaurant is the place to be if you’re in need of feeding – it serves up a wide range of tasty tapas plates during the week and substantial Sunday roasts at the weekend (booking recommended).

Facilities on site have been well thought out: the modern toilet and shower block is accessible and well lit, there’s a fresh water supply by the entrance and the chemical waste disposal point has been discreetly placed within the bins area.

If you’re here at the weekend, keep an eye out for remote-controlled stock car racing events at the small track by the site – they run on certain Friday evenings and Sundays for a bit of high-speed local entertainment.

Please note

    Welcoming wardens, spacious pitches, very clean facilities, and a wonderful setting overlooking the lake.
    A gentle walk into the village for supplies, via one of the local pubs for some liquid apples.
    So quiet and peaceful, amusing watching a swan chase off the Canadian Geese from the lake.
    Would revisit this site when in the area or passing through.

    This is a gem of a site lovely people run this on arrival no bbq which made real sense with how dry it is. Fantastic views large pitches great dog walks and added bonus a pub and restaurant which are both great outdoor and indoor with great views across the lakes. It seems to attract just nice groups very friendly bunch.

    This will be one of my come to places a few times per year

    Disliked: 

    Not a dislike merely an idea wondered if some benches in the middle of field for people to meet and greet but as said just an idea as not everyone likes that.
