Eye Kettleby Lakes near Melton Mowbray: David Southerington 1940 – 2006

If you fancy a bit of luxurious camping at a reasonable price then Eye Kettleby Lakes near to Melton Mowbray might just fit the bill.   This adult only tranquil site has individuals bathrooms that are warm and roomy with excellent showers.  The lodge-style club house is a comfortable place for breakfast or afternoon tea and in the evening you can enjoy the bar and occasional live music.  Just walking around the fishing lakes spotting wildlife might be enough exercise and is certainly lovely or you can walk through the Leicestershire countryside.  We strode out to Burrough Hill which is a fantastic view point and visited Melton Mowbray where those who aren’t vegetarians can buy local pork pies.
