Going Downhill Fast

Wymondham Windmill
Bit of a mixed bag with this CL, The site itself is lovely with great views of the Windmill in one direction and the valley in the opposite. BUT the biggest let down seems to be the lack of management and customer communication with regards to the CL. With the new ceremony venue building project now underway the peace and tranquility are far gone. From 8am until 1730 the constant banging, sawing and circular saw noise is enough to drive anybody mad everyday including Sunday. We hoped for just one days peace before leaving. With regards to the staff in the cafe, not sure if I walked in on a conversation not mean't for customers but all huddled and whispering didn't quite portray the professionalism experienced on this CL pre Covid. The CL itself has 3 pitches on a flat section with 2 on a slightly sloping section. Caravans are pushed towards the slope whilst motorhomes are kept level. The flat seems to be regularly mowed whilst the sloping pitches are left slightly longer. There is only one EHU which is nowhere near centralised. The sloping pitches have to hook up using CL supplied extension cables. To be honest, if I had known about the pending noise and lack of care towards the CL customers then I would have cancelled and found somewhere else more relaxing. It's a real shame as this was an excellent CL prior to 2020/1

Excellent site

Wymondham Windmill
Absolutely fantastic site, really peaceful and in a beautiful area with the added bonus of being able to climb to the top of the windmill!!! The food in the cafe looked brilliant with clearly many happy customers and it's nice to think that by paying for the campsite you are helping to preserve the windmill for generations to come. Fabulous place, highly recommend, you won't be disappointed!¬

A splendid Bank Holiday weekend

Wymondham Windmill
Friendly welcome from the owner. Fabulous far-reaching views due South over Rutland. Great play area for children, excellent coffee takeaways, perfectly peaceful at night, an altogether super weekend.

Wonderful Stay in the caravan

Wymondham Windmill
We just spent a long bank holiday weekend with our caravan, it was very relaxing and dog friendly place. Easy excess to the site and each pitch was spaced out with plenty of room. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, the tearoom was offering takeaway after my long drive from Devon they went above and beyond. Well worth another visit.

Another unwelcome welcome

Wymondham Windmill
Arrived on site and pulled straight onto field as signposted..parked my motorhome in accordance with camc rules (peg just to the right of my vehicle)..to be met by rude lady saying you should have come to the cafe first to see me ( nothing mentioned on website )and you've parked in a way your stealing space off the next pitch..I did ask if she would like me to move which was responded with a curt NO This site states open all year but it is a grass field and was very wet and I struggled to keep traction thats in early oct SO BEWARE.
