Purple Badger

Part luxury glamping and part off-grid camping, this campsite is the perfect rural idyll if you want to leave the hustle and bustle of city life for the countryside. 

Weekend Escapes

Located deep in the beautiful Leicestershire countryside, Purple Badger’s small campsite is nestled amongst two beautiful lakes  and comes with its own woodland, wildlife and a perfectly sized camping field.

The lakes are perfect for fishing so it’s no wonder this spot is so popular with avid anglers, but even if you’re not a dab hand with a fishing rod, the scenery is sublime.

There are two fully furnished shepherd huts, Logan and Jude. If you get your mitts on one of these, you’ll enjoy the view from a separate location overlooking the top lake and they both come with a double bed, fully fitted kitchenette, a boutique bathroom and a log burner – perfect for those chilly autumn/winter nights. They’re perfect for a romantic escape or worth booking just to glam up your fishing trip.

As well as this, there are nine spacious camping pitches in the site’s car-free field which include two of Purple Badger’s own canvas bell tents: Val (unfurnished) and Millie (furnished) but regardless where you pitch up, you’ll feel like you’re a million miles from civilisation, when in fact you’re only a short drive away from Leicester city. Oh, and did we mention they even have their own barista Coffee Cart with breakfast treats and all!

Seriously, when can we check in?
