Why stay here ...

Whether it’s a holiday or simply a few days break, we have a 5 pitch touring site located at the most southern point of England’s rural and smallest county, Rutland!

Our site offers the perfect location for exploring Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Rutland, being central to all 4 counties.

Each pitch has a generous sized level hardstanding and grass area, should you wish to use an awning. There is a water point, grey water waste and EHU on every pitch. Our site also offers chemical disposal waste unit, general waste and recycling points too.

We have 2 public houses within walking distance. The Castle Inn is opposite our entrance, offering Italian and English dining, also a take away service, including various pizzas. The Plough Inn is in the village of Caldecott, a 5 minute walk from site, offering traditional pub grub, dog friendly in the bar area only.

We are situated opposite the entrance to the Eyebrook reservoir (hand gate facility) where day fishing permits are available along with other fishing options such as boat hire. Please see their Website for details.

A mile and a half away we have the historic Rockingham Castle with special events throughout the spring and summer. Our site is ideal for visiting the Fairfax and Favor Horse trials. Please see their website for events and opening times.

There is an hourly bus service, RF1, that passes the site and can be flagged down on the Great Easton Road, outside the entrance to the Eyebrook reservoir. This bus goes to Uppingham and Oakham on the other side of the road, you can flag it down to go to Corby.

Great CL with lovely owners

Rutland Gateway
This is an excellent CL with serviced pitches and is ideally located for numerous places of interest. We stayed for 3 weeks, and the owners John and Marie were so helpful and informative about local places to visit. John also helped us out when we had a problem with our caravan, which was greatly appreciated. The site is very secure, clean and tidy, grass mown regularly, level hardstanding pitches and an excellent CDP. Locally we visited Kirby Hall, the Eleanor Cross at Geddington, saw the osprey on Eyebrook Reservoir, St Andrews Church at Stoke Dry (wonderful medieval wall paintings) and Harringworth Viaduct. Rockingham Castle was nice, but not geared up for the disabled. Slightly further afield, we visited Geoff Hamilton's Barnsdale Gardens, Longthorpe Tower (more wonderful wall paintings) and Nene Valley Country Park (great for kids). We loved Market Harborough where we watched the peregrines on the church tower and listened to the musicians in the church. Foxton Locks is a lovely walk, and we enjoyed a boat trip on the Rutland Belle. And Burghley House was amazing! We had dinner at the Plough twice, not only within walking distance but really fantastic food! This is such a nice site, and there is so much to see and do in the area, that we will definitely be back!

Short stay with grandchildren

Rutland Gateway
Great little site, well laid out, plenty of space and good pitch facilities. A bit of road noise but does quiten down at night. A trip to Hamerton Zoo was our big day out. John was particularly helpful when car broke down and rendered undriveable to diesel fuel leak. Would recommend.

One of the best CL’s we have found.

Rutland Gateway
Lovely CL, perhaps one of the best CL’s we have found. All pitches are level with hard standing and grass to sit out on, there were even picnic tables for us to use. Safe and secure entrance which is padlocked with the code given upon booking. All 5 pitches had there own fresh water and grey waste disposal, and chemical loo was conveniently positioned a short distance from our pitch. There were also 2 pubs within walking distance from the CL with one pub across the road from the CL entrance. Unfortunately I had an accident and we had to leave earlier than planned, and although I didn’t ask or expect a refund of the unused night, Marie was adamant and very kindly returned the fee, going above and beyond anything we have experienced on a CL, thank you Marie and John, we will definitely return.
