Eye Kettleby Lakes Log Cabins
We have 12 luxury log cabins. Eight have been graded with 4*, these have their own private outdoor hot tubs. Our other 4 lodges have been graded 5*, these also have their own individual outdoor hot tubs and private indoor saunas. They are made from traditional Scandinavian logs. Please see below the differences between our lodges and to find out more about each one.
Peace & Quiet
Set across the Kingfisher lake, six of the lodges are sat next to the lakeside and the other six are facing the beautiful woodland. Our site boasts beautiful country walks and offers excellent access to our eight coarse fishing lakes.
Our clubhouse is the hub of the holiday park and home to our bar and tearoom where we open everyday of the week serving breakfast (8:00-10:00am) and lunch (12:00-3:00pm).
The bar is open on a seasonal basis. During spring/summer our bar runs late Tuesday – Sunday, during the autumn/winter months our bar opens from Wednesday – Saturday evening. We advise guests to contact reception for exact opening times.
The clubhouse offers a relaxing environment for all of our guests to enjoy a drink from our fully stocked bar with local ales and over 30 different gins (we even allow your four legged friends to join you in our dedicated pet friendly lounge). During the season we have Eye Kettleby live music nights, a mobile fish and chip van and a weekly quiz. Please see our events page for further details. In the winter it is the perfect spot to sit in front of the roaring fire and enjoy memorable evenings with friends and family.
We also offer a free wireless network in the clubhouse where you can check emails and catch up with family and friends whilst away. Local Ales…. Gin Bar…… Live Music Nights……
We are situated just outside the local market town of Melton Mowbray, where you will find plenty to see and do in this rural capital of food. We are also just 20 minutes away from the vibrant city of Leicester which is a great place for food, drinks, shopping or to visit local historical events, such as the discovery over Richard III. Browse through our local area directory to see a selection of recommended places to visit.
