Lovely quiet site

Wymondham Windmill
Just back from a 2 night stop, lovely quiet site, did need wood blocks to level but nothing too bad(stayed on worse) access to tea rooms, windmill, play area, nice 5min walk to the local pub, R2 Rutland flyer bus ride to Melton Mowbray, which is about 15min walk to the bus stop from the site. Paid in the tea room upon arrival and was shown where to pitch,

Very disappointed

Wymondham Windmill
We had heard a lot of positives about this site, however the reality is that currently there are development works taking place which caused some noise, when we arrived the roofers had radio blaring out and singing along in a rather loud and not so tuneful manner. The pitches are very uneven so if visiting bring plenty of blocks, there was also a strong smell of sewerage on the edge of the touring site. The toilet facilities are shared with the visitors centre and cafe which can lead to long waits. At £20 per night and then £5 a night for electric we felt this site is very overpriced for what is on offer for the tourers. One positive experience was The Millers Breakfast in the cafe it was great with good service

Free access to windmill and small area

Wymondham Windmill
Shortish grass in good condition, slightly sloping site. A hardstanding pitch is available but access is limited due to overhanging tree. Site is seperate to public area that has small playground, cycle shop, antiques and tearoom. Windmill has no sails but is free to view. Site advertised on their website at £15 but was £20 (+£5 EHU if required) - can pay in tearoom with credit card. Site entrance is sharp left immediately in to public entrance, so if towing and approaching up from the village a wide sweep is advisable. We did have a smell of drains on our pitch adjacent the hardstanding, the other pitches seemed ok.

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!¬
