Alan Rogers Review of Midshires Way Campsite
Midshires Way Campsite and Alpaca Farm is in South Nottinghamshire adjacent the popular Midshires Way footpath, a long-distance trail that runs all the way from the Chiltern Hills up to Stockport at its northern end. This is an adults-only site that thrives on rural peace and quiet. Of an evening, the barbecue area is the place to be for sipping drinks at sunset or cooking dinner over coals. If you would rather someone else did the cooking or provided the pints, there are plenty of places to pick up meals and drinks in East Leake, a village less than a mile away from the farm. Whilst on site you might like to play golf, ride the local steam train, go fishing, try your luck at the races or get behind the wheel of a supercar. These are all opportunities that can be reached within a half-hour drive. There are plenty of footpaths and bridleways around too for walkers who don't fancy the long-distance footpath. Each of the 10 hardstanding pitches has EHU, water tap and grey waste drain. There are also glamping lodges available to hire.
You could consider taking a trip to the John Taylor & Co bell foundry, the biggest such site in the world. If campanology doesn't quite chime in with your idea of a dream break, perhaps you will be taken by alternative heritage sites like Calke Abbey (half an hour) or Belvoir Castle (40 minutes), where the architecture and formal gardens are as good as certain to impress. Rutland Water (45 minutes) is another promising destination if you are minded to try walks, bike rides, bird spotting or water sports in a thoroughly natural setting. Handy for Nottingham, Leicester, Derby and Loughborough.
