Pronounced ‘beaver’ by locals and literally meaning ‘beautiful view’, the Vale of Belvoir offers the perfect place to hideaway.
It's a calming place for couples to relax, families to enjoy the countryside, and foodies wanting to sample great food. Opposite the gates of Belvoir Castle, you’ll find Vale House Belvoir and its luxury glamping ground.
Unlike traditional camping, you’ll enjoy 5m bell tents equipped with cosy beds and wood burning stoves. Breakfast will be delivered to your tent each morning and two nights’ of dinners are included at award winning hostelries. Massage and therapy treatments, barbecue packs and picnic baskets can be ordered.
The picturesque area is home to local ale, fruit cordials, Stilton cheese and the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie, the latter being covered by European Protected Designation of Origin orders. The town is well worth a visit and on Tuesdays several markets take place with much hustle and bustle.
The East Midlands Food Festival in Melton Mowbray is one of the largest regional food festivals in the country. Running for over 15 years, lots of loyal and new visitors can enjoy edible delights from some of the country’s finest producers, many from the East Midlands.
