Plan where you’re going to stay during your visit to Hathern!
During the busier times of the year, like when Wicked Hathern Festival is on during the summer, it can be really tough to find a place to stay in the area.
That’s why, if you’re thinking of taking a trip to see us here then you should consider booking your accommodation a month or so in advance. It always pays to be prepared!
There are a good variety of accommodation options open to you, depending on the kind of experience you’re looking for. Come during the winter and we’d recommend finding lodgings inside as temperatures can drop well below zero – not exactly what you’d describe as camping weather…
The following options are great alternatives for families and couples alike, looking for something a little different in their next holiday:
Kingsmill Caravan Park
Kingsmill Caravan Park is an independently operated caravan park and camp site, ideal for those holiday makers who are eager to enjoy the most of their time out in the fresh air. You can choose to bring your own camping stuff with you and pitch up. Whilst there are no Yorkshire static caravans for sale here, you can select from one of 20 tourers and 50 tents to hire.
Be warned during the weekend of Download Festival (8th-10th June 2018) this campsite and many others in the area are ram-packed with Heavy Metal music fans: you’ve been warned!
Old Hathern Station Bed & Breakfast
Ginger and Marilyn are your hosts at the Old Hathern Station Bed & Breakfast, a B&B that has a flawless record in Trip Advisor, thanks to the ‘spotlessly clean’ rooms and ‘excellent amenities’. A warm welcome and a hearty breakfast is the minimum expectation when you spend a few nights here and the central location makes it ideal for getting around the Hathern area.
You can find Ginger and Marilyn’s charming B&B over at TripAdvisor.co.uk
Dreamer’s Delight, Loughborough
The aptly named Dreamer’s Delight is a centrally located apartment in Loughborough, perfect for those looking for a peaceful night’s stay whilst staying right in the heart of the town. This is an ideal location if you’re looking to make the most of the summer time events in Hathern, but don’t quite fancy camping in a noisy field!
Host Tanvi keeps the apartment clean, making the most of the space and providing room for 4 to sleep at any one time.
Modern Room in Quiet Village
Set just outside the village, you might not be able to enjoy the freedom of an entire apartment but you can benefit from the local knowledge of your host Dom. You’ll be just a stone’s throw away from the centre of Hathern whilst staying with Dom, making this a good option if you were considering staying for Bonfire Night in November.
At only £30 p/night this is a great option for a solo traveller looking for a base to explore the rest of the area.
The Royal Oak, Long Whatton
Finally, for the traditional British inn experience you can choose to take the short walk from Hathern to nearby Long Whatton. The Royal Oak is a well-established pub and inn, providing food at a high AA Rosette standard and comfortable rooms for travellers. Spacious double rooms with breakfast start at £109 for two guests.
Although this attractive inn is commonly used as a stop over for those flying out to East Midlands Airport, it’s convenient location gives you good access to the surrounding area.
