    Hi all,

    Some advice, please? We're stopping in the Leicester area in mid-October to spend a couple of days with son and family. They live in the city centre and stopping with them isn't an option. Son doesn't drive, unfortunately, so we're looking to find a site somewhere reasonably close by to a rail station so that they can come out to us.

    What does the panel think? :)

    Looks like it might suit you well.
    Good luck

    You can stay at quorn train station, near Loughborough, they sometimes have rallies there, and the steam train goes to Leicester, but just check as it was a while ago

    Yes, we are here until the end of September. Lovely site, very informal but quiet. Nice tearoom over the bridge and does a cracking Sunday Lunch. Good fishing & an easy traffic free cycle ride into Market Harborough.

    Further thought there is a bus stop in Gt Oxenden if you don't want to walk

    X7 BUS To Northampton from MH Bus Station every 1/2 hour (Ish)
