CL of the Year 2011 - Regional Winner

Rockingham CL was opened in 2010, set in approximately 1 acre with wonderful panoramic views over the spectacular Welland Valley. We are situated just outside the village of Cottingham approximately 150 yards from the village boundary sign.

Everyone is welcome including pets and children. All of our pitches are spacious and level with clean gravel hard standings, they have 16 amp electric hookups with space for awning and car parking, with Free Wi-Fi available throughout the site. There is a hard gravel driveway which gives access to all of the pitches, this enables us to be open 365 days a year no matter what the weather.

We have designed our site to the highest of standards, previous guests have commented that it is of similar quality to most Club sites but as we only have 5 vans at any one time it never feels over crowded, availability can be checked by visiting our website and clicking on our availability calendar or by giving us a call.

Rockingham CL is ideally located for exploring the area, historic Rockingham Castle is a 5 minute drive away, Rockingham Speedway for those petrol heads is a 10 minute drive away.

Local English heritage sites include Kirby Hall, Lyddington Bede House & Triangular Lodge all no more than 10 minutes away by car.

The Eyebrook reservoir is just 10 minutes away which was used during the second world war for Dambuster training, however the much quieter activities of bird watching and trout fishing can now be enjoyed or slightly further afield we have Rutland Water which is 25 minutes away by car.

Cream teas are certain to await you in the market towns of Uppingham and Oakham, a must if you are interested in Art Galleries and Antiques. The nearby town of Corby has an International public swimming pool and a Cinema coming soon!

There is a local dog walking park at East Carlton which is a 5 to 10 minute drive away approximately 200 acres in size it is open all year with free parking. The park can also be accessed by walking the famous Jurassic way through the villages of Cottingham and Middleton.

However many of our guests simply enjoy the tranquillity of the CL and choose to spend their time watching the Red Kites that frequently fly over the CL, and of course a BBQ and favourite tipple whilst the sunsets beautifully over the valley.

There are two pubs within a 5 to 10 minute walk from the CL serving real ales and good pub food.

Our objective is to provide our fellow caravanners with a safe, secure, clean and tidy retreat in the good old fashioned English countryside, we hope to see you soon.

Our site is ideal for couples and walkers. There is also CCTV and a security gate with access code.

You can also find us on Facebook.

A little overpriced

Great site with good views, A single shower has now been installed which is kept clean, we stopped in January so wasn’t busy. Quite close to road so if you put your unit to the back of site road noise may be a slight problem. There is a problem with a dog or dogs nearby they seem to bark continually through the day and into early evening , I do think the prices are a bit steep here especially at weekends. Overall clean tidy with good views. They prefer payment on arrival.

Stunning views

We stayed here to be close to one of our daughter's who got married locally and the site could not have been more perfect with stunning views across the valley. The site was easy to access and we had plenty of room for our van, awning and car, although we need to buy rock pegs when we come back to peg the awning onto the hard-standing. The local villages are walkable and have lovely pubs - we had a very nice Sunday carvery in the Sondes Arms. The area have lovely villages and interesting National Trust properties that we visited when we weren't busy with the wedding. We will definitely return.

Birds Eye View of Welland Valley

4 day stay at the end of the warm spell Feb/March - arrived in warm sunshine with clear views of 3 or 4 villages dotted around the Welland valley and a large hawk/kite sitting on the farm fence 5 or 6 metres away from our pre-allocated pitch no.5 before soaring off in the thermals over the valley! There cant be many better views from a CL anywhere. Simple access in to the CL particularly from the east, All hardstanding pitches have 16amp electrics but please note 25 metre cable is required if you book pitch 5 as the outlet is up on pitch 4. TV signal is excellent being on the crest of the valley. The village of Cottingham is a 10 minute walk with the recently refurbed George Pub the closest with quality food, best to book though for a table. The other pub the Spread Eagle also opens at lunch time with a OAP offer (if you qualify) and the food is reasonable. Both are dog friendly in the bar, As mentioned in other reviews the Indian restaurant/take away is also good quality. Did not see the owners on site while we were on site but it is all well organised remotely in any case.

Quiet and simple site with easy access.

Short weekend for us with the dog, initially a little challenging to see the sign, but follow the instructions and drive slowly looking left out of the village and you'll see the club sign. Enter gate code to get in, approach to the gate could be longer if you have a large set up, but there isn't much traffic to worry about anyway. Choice of pitches allocated by email and text the day before arrival there are 1 and 1A etc for all five pitches. Pitches are nearly level, but not quite! Easy access to water and electrical hook up, site requires organic toilet fluid as they use a septic tank, its available on site free of charge if you only have blue. Indian restaurant /takeaway is very nice indeed and delivers to the campsite pretty quickly. 2 pubs within an easy walk of the site, The Royal George was by far the most welcoming and is ok with well behaved dogs in the bar area. Views across the valley are superb and it's very peaceful at night. We visited East Carlton country park which is at most 5 minutes drive from the site, n ice place to take dogs. Then went on to Market Harborough, which is a nice medium sized town with plenty of shops and no shopping centre. Left this morning in the rain with very good impressions of the site.
