A total of seventy plots are available and about a third of these are occupied. This is your opportunity to have a fabulous escape to the country holiday home set amongst Oak, Larch and Beech woodland. Forest paths meander through the trees, perfect for relaxing nature walks. Wildlife abounds and the forest is home to a number of interesting animals. You'll never tire of watching the numerous wild birds if you feed them from your patio or veranda.
A friendly community is already established and whilst maintaining one's own privacy everyone looks out for each others' property. As a home owner at Charnwood Acres you have access to a free email account run through this website.

The Story of the Static Caravan makes interesting reading
The story of the static caravan holiday home is a staple of the classic British holiday. From its 1930s/1940s origins when touring caravanners found a spot on a plot of land on a farm and pitched up until winter. Sites quickly sprang up, and manufacturers began designing caravans for this sole purpose.
The mobile home first appeared with postwar housing shortages but by the 1960s holiday caravans were larger and specifically designed for holiday let. The '60s/'70s saw new models become more home-like, and the 1980s saw another surge in designs.
With over 30 manufacturers, exports into Europe were high too. With 140 images and many contributors' memories, this book brings the story up to date and shows how sophisticated the static holiday home has become.
