The Owner Says
Enjoy scenic views of the Vale of Belvoir at The Engine Yard Glampsite. Our, fully dressed, 4m bell tents are situated at the The Engine Yard; a three acre landscaped site, carefully repurposed to celebrate local food, drink and artisan shopping with an opportunity to relax and unwind in stunning surroundings.
Sip cocktails at the Balloon Bar, enjoy tasty woodfired pizzas at the Fuel Tank or savour a scrummy hot chocolate from Café Allez after a local countryside walk… what more could you ask for? Oh yeah, we have Belvoir Castle just a 3 minute walk away, hiking and cycling routes on your doorstep, fishing lakes nearby and a selection of great country pubs.
Each tent is decked with fairy lights and bunting. You will have your own wooden table and benches, ideal for alfresco meals, and camping chairs set around a mini fire bowl. Inside you’ll find a snug space with rugs, lamps, a double bed with mattress and bedding, shower towel and hand towel per person as well as a mini cooking kit (contents listed in FAQ’s). We can set up your tent to accommodate up to four people using additional camping mattresses – ideal for families. When booking request for 2, 3 or 4 people.
A brand new state of the art shower block has been installed. This includes 7 shower wet rooms; each with shower, sink, toilet, mirror and changing space. One of the wet rooms has disabled access. The shower block also has two covered sinks for washing up and where you can get water for drinks and cooking. The site offers large communal fire bowls where you can BBQ, toast marshmallows and relax under the stars.

If you’re travelling from the north, exit the A52 at Bottesford Bypass, turning right onto Belvoir Road. After two miles turn left onto Woolsthorpe Road, continue for a mile and then bear left onto Woolsthorpe Road. In a couple hundred yards you will see signs for Rewild Retreats. To access the private glamping car park, drive past Belvoir Castle with it on your right and look out for the glamping signs soon after on the left. The site entrance is on the left, just after The Engine Yard.
The nearest train station is Grantham (regular trains to and from London, the South and North East lines). From Grantham it's a 15-minute taxi journey.
