Excellent Site for Cycling, Walking and Birdwatching

The site is located on a working farm and one has to expect some noise during the day but we spent most of each day out cycling or walking and for this it is in an excellent location. There is a shared cycling/walking path around the Hambleton Peninsula within easy reach and the village is less than one mile with an excellent pub serving great food. Rutland Water with its' cycling/walking path right round is easily reachable and there are many car parks located around the water. Facilities are as one would expect at a CL and the site is large enough to provide plenty of space without parking on top of one another. Best views are on the side closest to the water. We were greeted by the lady from the Farmhouse and found the couple very welcoming and friendly. Fresh eggs are available from the farmhouse. This is a site that we will almost certainly revisit.

Disappointed attitude of owners

Never ever made a review before, but felt necessary to share our poor experience with others. Booked to meet caravan friends and appalled at farmer and wife's rude abrupt attitude. No welcome or explanation of facilities location etc. Called to meet owners and instead of a welcome was told, 'that will be £80' with hand held out. No hello etc. When I went to pay the farmer threw the cheque back and said "oh bugger! I want cash". When explained I didn't have the cash he said "go to cashpoint then" and slammed the door. Constant noise which turned out to be air drier machinery operating from 8am to 8.30pm and tractors engines left running the opposite side of a hedge spilling out fumes. Not relaxing at all. Owner also made statement of "where are you putting the rubbish waste" when I was disposing of a very small rubbish bag into rubbish bin . Being told, "can't you take it home since the bin isn't very large". We explained, no, not when we were staying for 5 nights! We felt this was very unreasonable. We feel they shouldn't be in hospitality! Lovely location but not restful on site. We left a day earlier for some peace and quite. Won't be returning again.

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.
