Holwell Camp Site

Holwell Pastures sign A warm welcome awaits you at Holwell Pastures Scout camp site near Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, well known for its famous Pork Pies and Stilton Cheese. The site is located less than 3 miles from Melton Mowbray town centre, to the north of the town. It is situated in beautiful and tranquil countryside with 2 large open fields subdivided into separate areas enabling smaller groups to share the site. Complimenting the camping field is the Martyn Turner hut, a wooden building with a meeting room and fitted kitchen. Coming soon is a large brand new building opening in March 2019 (see below). The camp site is owned and managed by Melton District Scouts and provides an ideal opportunity for groups of young people to enjoy back to basics camping and the outdoors and very soon indoor sleeping as well in a warm, comfortable new building (see below). The site is suitable for young people of all ages from Beaver, Cub Scout and Brownie sleepovers to Scout and Guide camps and Explorer Expeditions. It is also a great location for Duke of Edinburgh overnight camps, Youth, Church, school and college groups and even for private parties. NEW BUILDING COMING SOON! Our large new centrally heated building is nearing completion. It will have an indoor dormitory with bunk beds for up to 32 young people plus 2 separate leader twin bedrooms. There will be a large meeting room and fully fitted, kitchen, a large games room and a suite of modern unisex toilets and showers including a wet room for disabled persons.
