Staying closer to home has become more fashionable thanks to spiralling diesel prices and a new east Midlands site could prove popular as a result.

Eye Kettleby Lakes Touring Park sits in 150 acres of quiet Leicestershire countryside and opens its gates for the first time on Friday 30 March.

Staying closer to home has become more fashionable thanks to spiralling diesel prices and a new east Midlands site could prove popular as a result.

 

Eye Kettleby Lakes Touring Park sits in 150 acres of quiet Leicestershire countryside and opens its gates for the first time on Friday 30 March.

 

Kettleby Lakes

Eye Kettleby Lakes opens for business at the end of March

 

The site is a former Camping & Caravanning Club CL, which has been developed with 59 new touring pitches laid out around a lake and picnic area. Pitches are said to be spacious, fully serviced and have hard standing bases and separated from a lodge development by seven, large fishing lakes.

 

It is a member of the Tranquil Touring Parks network, meaning a high standard of facilities is guaranteed. Like all Traquil Touring Park sites, it is an adult-only destination and enjoys a five-star grading courtesy of Visit Britain.

 

Three amenity blocks service the site. Two blocks, at opposite ends of the site, house eight private washrooms, while a third provides a large, fully equipped disabled suite and wash-up/laundry room. A log-built reception and clubhouse complete the set up.

 

The new site is open all year, so there should be plenty of chances to get there this year. To book your pitch, call Eye Kettleby Lakes on 01664 565900 or visit the website to book.
