Lakeside stays in Leicestershire

Wander through the outskirts of Melton Mowbray, and you’ll find Eye Kettleby Lakes. This family-run fishery has been at the heart of Leicestershire accommodation for 30 years. 150 acres of lush green landscape provide an away-from-it-all stay where everything is taken care of. The Lomas family only make one request: that you arrive ready to relax! Sounds good to us…

Holidays for everyone

Eye Kettleby Lakes offers something for every type of holidayer. The four- and five-star luxury log cabins are perfect for get-aways with style. Take a peek inside your cabin and you’ll discover spacious rooms, a hot tub and a private sauna, as well as all the amenities you need for some serious waterside luxe.

Or why not try a spot of glamping – you’ll find all the glamour, just a bit closer to nature. Don’t worry, though, you won’t be pegging up tents or dealing with chilly temperatures. The stylish glamping pods come with fully equipped kitchens, en suite bathrooms and private garden areas. This is glamping, and some!

The expansive touring park offers space for caravans, tents, motorhomes. Larger groups and families might also enjoy the stunning Woodland View Farm House, a quintessential country house with farmland views from every angle. Something for everyone – we told you!

So much to enjoy

Calling all fishing fans! Be sure to check out the beautiful nine coarse fishing lakes. Stunning views are just the start; why not enjoy the two Specimen Carp Lakes and year-round opening times?

Whether you’re a regular angler or just visiting the area, be sure to visit The Lakes Bar & Tearoom. Friendly staff serve up eggs (done your way), bacon sandwiches and Full English breakfasts until 11.30. Lunches are currently on hold due to the pandemic but will be returning soon. But you can, of course, still drop in for cake – these more-than generous slices are way too good to miss!

Lovely coffee by the Lakes

Oooh, what’s that sitting beside the cake? It smells luuush…

The Eye Kettleby Lakes team were looking for a way to take their tearoom and accommodation up to the next level. And what better way than with premium quality speciality coffee? It’s the (coffee) cherry on top of that very nice slice of cake.

Here at Two Chimps, we hand-roast the very best speciality coffee beans in small batches. We roast frequently throughout the week, so we’re always delivering fresh-as-it-gets coffee to independent businesses like Eye Kettleby Lakes. We’re local, too, so can pop over and deliver a coffee top-up in minutes!


Two Chimps Coffee at Eye Kettleby Lakes


Peruvian coffee for a prize cup

Take a trip to the lovely Eye Kettleby tearoom, and you’ll find freshly roasted coffee straight from the TC roastery. The Eye Kettleby team serve Oh Do Beehave, our smooth, creamy Peruvian that tastes a bit like chocolate. Decaf lovers will be happy, too – every coffee is also available as a Two Chimps Decaf! No matter what you choose, each cup is brewed using an espresso machine by expert, Two Chimps-trained staff. Fancy adding a bit of sweetness? We also supply the tearoom with a luscious range of artisan coffee syrups. Hazelnut iced latte? Yes please!

The Eye Kettleby team have got your home brewing covered, too. You’ll find retail bags available in their shop, so you can take top coffee home in your suitcase or tackle box. Pretty good souvenir, we’d say! Bags are available in whole bean or cafetiere grind, so you can brew awesome coffee right from your kitchen!

Meet the chimp behind this article!
Head Chimp founded Two Chimps alongside Laura in 2016 after being self-employed from the age of 21. He caught the coffee bug from using an at-home roaster, and the rest is history!

What Andy does outside of the treehouse:
When the weather’s nice, Andy loves going on bike rides with his trusty sidekick, microchimp Felix (who always leads the way, of course). Andy also enjoys spending time tending to the family’s vegetable garden, and looking after their at-home farmyard, which includes a cat, two guinea pigs, and six chickens!

Andy says…
“I believe every day is a school day, and I’m always looking for opportunities to stick my head in a book and absorb new knowledge. I also love a problem to solve and fix – there’s no such thing as problems, only solutions.”
