Relax by the Lakeside on a Fishing Holiday or Relaxing Break
Lakeview Lodge is located in beautiful countryside, within the Vale of Belvoir, Leicestershire. It overlooks its very own private fishing lake, and can be rented on its own, or with exclusive use of the lake. Day and night fishing is available, charged per 24hrs, (fishing for two anglers is included in the price when renting both the lodge and lake together). Along with the truly idyllic setting, there boasts an abundance of nature and wildlife, offering a true ‘immersion into nature’. The lodge has a privileged position which hosts some of the most wonderful sunsets, a sight appreciated by all, and perfect for visiting artists, or keen photographers. For cyclists, runners and walkers, the area has many routes, trails and bridleways to explore, both on and off road.
This is an ideal venue for couples, families and keen fishermen, when holidaying, needing 'time out', or purely as a 'stop off' when travelling further a-field.

Layout of Accommodation at Lakeview Lodge:
The lodge has one double bedroom, and one single bedroom, to accommodate three guests comfortably, but will sleep a total of five guests; by also using the two single sofa beds located in the living room.
Our aim is to be very flexible with regard to bookings, and we look forward to doing our utmost, to accommodate guests’ exact requirements when selecting the dates and length of stay required. We have chosen not to dictate fixed arrive/depart days. We charge on a per nightly basis, dependant on the time of year, and don't base our prices on whether your booking falls mid-week, week-end, or on a bank holiday etc.... What a refreshing change, and so much easier! If you wish your well earned break to start on the day of the week that you choose,, then why not!
The fishing lake is host to a stock of Carp, and can be rented with the lodge if you require exclusive use. There are four large swims/platforms from which to fish, giving ample room to set up a bivvy and fishing equipment; allowing a maximum of four anglers to fish comfortably. Night fishing is permitted.
Our neighbouring property offers coarse fishing day tickets, should you also wish to try your hand at that. Free parking is available at the fishery for our fishing guests, along with a café, which is open to the public daily. Guests renting the lodge have their own private parking area immediately outside the lodge.

Lakeview lodge is located within the beautiful countryside of the Vale of Belvoir, Leicestershire, whilst being convenient to our closet town of Melton Mowbray, approximately 15 minutes drive away. A rural capital of food, there was a time when Melton Mowbray was one of the most fashionable places in Europe, with royalty and aristocracy flocking to the town to spend the Winter months hunting with hounds. The town now has a wealth of history, illustrated on buildings with blue plaques, and displayed along it's heritage trail. Melton hosts a general market, cattle market, and Sunday antiques car boot market. The annual Christmas Victorian market is also very well known, and very popular, with traders travelling from far and wide, to 'sell their wares'.
