Fantastic location

Stayed on this site for 4 days over the bank holiday weekend, fantastic. Everything we wanted from a CL site. We were met on arrival by the owner and shown the facilities and everytime we met her over the 4 days she enquired if we were ok. Straight from the CL entrance onto the circular cycle route, 22 miles, around Rutland water. Also brilliant walking area, so much to do which we couldn't fit in so we will be back. A lovely lovely site.

Nice spot......but.

Lovely spot. The farmer met us and showed us the facilities and where the field was. Had a nice walk around the area and a peaceful night. However in the morning we needed to take on some fresh water as our tank was empty. No sooner had I connected the hose to put water into our camper tank than the farmer appeared and said I must have enough from yesterday. I explained that we hadn’t taken any water yesterday and we needed some for the day. He allowed me some though he wasn’t happy. He told me that campers take too much and that he’s going to fix the supply so that you have to use a watering can. I was very disappointed at his miserly approach having paid £16 for the night. Shame to meet a grumpy farmer in such an idyllic place. Moved on to Dowry Farm, much nicer people.

Perfect for a one night escape and cheap too :)

We had the opportunity for a one night away in our MH and wanted somewhere within an hours Drive from home.. The Lady on the phone did seem a little abrupt but I was pleased when we she said they'd had a cancellation and had space for one night - It's a working farm and can understand if they're busy. Mrs Blackwell face to face is lovely and welcoming Arrived & shown to the pitch, lovely, quiet small 5 van site, peaceful with young cows in the opposite field and a great view of the water, chickens roaming & friendly horses opposite the house. Electrics explained & I asked what time were were expected off Mrs Blackwell was very relaxed and said anytime - no rush. It had been raining all week and the grass needed a mow but we were very happy overall - After a bad week at work when all you want to do is relax this is a perfect quiet site - no facilities but TV reception good. When I emptied the Elsan there was no hose to 'wash out & down' - But Mr Blackwell called from the house & explained there is a tub by the tap to fill & to return back to the disposal for said purpose.. so no cross contamination. Going back again at some point with the bikes to do the full circuit of the Water :)

Non refundable deposit

The pitch was booked January and a £45 deposit requested (although no conditions were explained) and sent. Two weeks before the holiday Mrs Blackwell ‘phoned and advised that because she had not realised that the stay included a Bank Holiday the balance would be due on arrival. Unfortunately ten days before the holiday a car ran into the back of my car. I ‘phoned the site that day and advised that, although we were hopeful of still arriving, that if they received another booking it should be accepted. It then transpired that the tow bar had been damaged and the repairer advised that towing should not be undertaken. I then considered using another car which had a tow bar but which had not been used for towing for a number of years. That proved to be impossible because the electrics were u/s. I, therefore, telephoned the site four days before the due date and explained the circumstances and advised that we would not be coming. When asked if the deposit would be refunded I received a flat refusal on the grounds that the pitch had not been re let. Whilst I expressed sympathy with the site owner because of no shows, on reflection I believe that her rigid approach to the circumstances is unreasonable and not what I would have expected; it simply penalises those who play by the rules and not those who don't. Possibly also the site owner should consider,when requesting a deposit, stating what the conditions are.

fantastic location

We visited last month & what a fantastic location with views over Rutland Water. So peaceful and relaxing. We came to walk around the peninsula and also walked into nearby Oakham. The field was level enough for our camper & the facilities fine. There was a water point in the field but the pressure was low when we first arrived but the next day the owner had sorted that. We will return.
