What a difference a year makes!
Simon Hare from BBC East Midlands Today came to Callow Top yesterday to interview our reception manager about how the heatwave was affecting bookings. He also talked to some of our guests about how they were enjoying camping in temperatures usually seen on holidays abroad.

It’s 12 months since the BBC last visited us after weeks of torrential rain! A year on it’s a completely different story with guests enjoying long, hot days of blue sky and brilliant sunshine.

This gorgeous weather is the icing on the camping cake, long may it continue.

“A very well situated park offering the opportunity for guests to relax whilst also using the park as a base for visiting the many local places of interest.

The very positive and proactive attitude shown by the team members should be commented on – a compliment for the park and owners” said the inspector.
