Not very peaceful

I booked three nights away as we needed some time to relax and thought this would be a peaceful site, being five vans on a working farm. The fact that we could cycle and walk from site was a bonus. The road leading to the site is full of pot holes, the grey water disposal was up against a hedge, couldn't see where it went but could not get near anyway with the motorhome. The chemical disposal point was at one side of the farm gate and the water to clean at the other side and we were told that you use the container to take the water to the toilet, don't take the toilet to the tap. The farm was noisy but that was OK, the thing that I was not happy about was the fact that we were not aware that there was a camping field next to the CL, same owner so could have mentioned it, and the cars were parked before the CL so the metal gate was constantly clashing when people were arriving/leaving and lots of kids running around and very noisy and loud music, although I think that was coming from the RV parked in the corner on the CL.The campsite seemed very busy. This is not the peaceful site we expected and I would suggest not motorhome friendly as getting water was not easy, and disposing of it impossible. The view was good if you walked to the edge of the site, although it would have been very good from the position the RV had. Four mile walk or cycle to Oakham and you can get onto the Hamilton circuit just down the road for cycling or walking, so good if you are active.

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 :)
