Glamping at The Engine Yard Belvoir Castle: 5m Bell Tents on platforms

General

  • Glamping site next door to Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire
  • Walking, cycling and fishing right on site in the estate grounds
  • Bar, restaurant and pizzeria; farm shop, café and modern shower block

There’s something really rather special about Glamping at The Engine Yard Belvoir Castle. After all, it’s not every day you holiday right next-door to a castle – and a very famous one at that, for Belvoir Castle has a starring role in the notorious TV drama The Crown.

With spectacular Vale of Belvoir views from the camping field, tents are prettily decked in fairy lights and bunting, and come kitted out with a table and benches for alfresco suppers, as well as camping chairs so you can cosy up around the firepit. Once inside your bijou new home, all is snug and welcoming, with rugs, lamps and double bed, and there’s no need to bring bedding or towels as everything is laid on for you.

A mini cooking kit is provided too, but the glamping site is right next door to The Engine Yard, a nattily restored complex of estate buildings turned retail village. Here you can sample artisan cocktails at the bar, eat on the gastropub terrace or order a wood-fired pizza takeaway to eat back at base, so you may never get round to doing any actual cooking.

Stuff’s always going on at The Engine Yard too, from live-music gigs to farmers’ markets and sales in the indie boutiques. And while you’re there, it would be criminal not to have a mosey around the castle’s ornate apartments and fabulous formal gardens.

A round up of facilities on this well-equipped site include a modern utilities block with showers, sink, loos, mirror and a handy changing space in wet rooms, as well as a washing-up area and running water.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Really well equipped glamping bell tent with everything we needed …22/08/2022

    Really well equipped glamping bell tent with everything we needed for a family of 4. The kitchen kit was great, the firepit was fantastic for a little BBQ and for toasting marshmallows and it was great having our own private toilet and shower! Views are amazing!

    Disliked: 

    Only slight thing was no gate between the car park area and the field which with kids aged 3 and 5 was just a little bit anxiety provoking. An addition of a gate would be so helpful as a future suggestion.

    The tent was great and had all the basics of what you needed. We had our own private shower and toilet which was clean and modern.

    Disliked: 

    Would have been good to have had electricity/power in the tent as there was no where to charge phones which was a challenge with teenage kids!!! I know it’s camping and there were charging points on the site, but in the tent would have been great. The location was great, but most of the on site shop are only open part of the week.

    Facilities were immaculate and comfortable - all the luxuries of home but in a tent! Loved having our own en suite bathroom where we could leave our toiletries and keep towels warm and dry.
    Being so close to the Engine Yard meant we had no worries about places to eat and drink and didn’t have the stress of cooking every meal.
    Surrounded by beautiful walks and peaceful countryside.

    Disliked: 

    The camp chairs provided are really not comfy - sorry!

    Disliked: 

    There were 5 of us and only cutlery for 4. There was a very small gas burner that was not adequate for 5 and the kettle was too small . Also the website stated not to bring your own bbq but when we arrived there was only a small fire pit so we couldn’t cook the bbq food we had brought with us.

    Great location for this new site which is set within the grounds of the Belvoir Castle estate. The Bell Tents are all brand new, well equipped and extremely comfortable with ‘proper’ beds and good quality bedding (duvets and pillows).
    A newly built wash block provided us with an exclusive use wet room with shower, wc and basin.
    Uninterrupted views of the Belvoir valley and visits from local hares and pheasants, not to mention the sheep and goats in adjacent fields, kept us entertained whilst enjoying a glass of wine and a stunning sunset.
    Lots of good walks leading to canals and lovely pubs, as well as a good selection of restaurants, bars, cafes and shops onsite. Belvoir Castle is just a short walk away and definitely worth a visit; an excellent way to while away an afternoon. Castle is beautiful and grounds are really lovely.
    Friendly host/manager. Very pleasant stay.

Local attractions

You don’t need to go very far for great walks, as there are way-marked trails right across Belvoir Castle’s Capability Brown-designed grounds. Cyclists, there are family routes in the Vale of Belvoir, as well as the hilly and more challenging Redmile Loop. Anglers, bring your rods to try out the fishing lakes on the estate, and there’s a golf course within 20 minutes’ drive.

Young kids can run around on the soft play area at Little Jack’s Farm and Garden Centre (10 minutes) as teens stage paintball shoot-outs at Adrenalin Jungle Activity Centre.

For more sedate days out, wildlife-lovers might get to see yellowhammers and bats in Muston Meadows National Nature Reserve (10 minutes). There are wonderful display of spring blossom at the National Trust-run Belton House, and you might like to reward yourselves (you are on holiday, after all) with a tasting session at Hanwell Wine Estate (both 25 minutes).
