Perfect location on a working farm

Armley Lodge Farm
This is what CL sites are about for me. A field on a working farm with stunning views. Location to Rutland Water is second to none. Chemical disposal, EHU, rubbish bins and fresh water.

Tranquil site with fabulous views.

Armley Lodge Farm
We had a 2 night stay at this site. Very friendly welcome when we arrived. Views from the site are amazing. Not a lot of noise from farm even though it is a working farm. Lots of walks for the dogs around Rutland water. Will return.

Great place for a quiet retreat

Armley Lodge Farm
Very friendly owners knowledgeable about the local area / where to visit and how to get there. Peaceful CL site but there is a camping field round the back so expect some slight noise from that. 25 minute walk to the local pub and a nice walk along the peninsula. To go further afield you would need transport or bikes.

Very Mixed Feelings

Armley Lodge Farm
We stayed for four nights at the end of June 2021 in a motorhome.There's no doubt that this area is very beautiful and this site is well located to give very easy access to all that Rutland Water and its stunning surroundings has to offer; an excellent location for walking, cycling and bird watching, The site has the potential to be amazing, however the very basic facilities leave much to be desired. Judging by previous reviews we were lucky to get a 'welcome' or see anyone on arrival. There are two EHU stations, one with four points and the other (very well concealed in the hedge) with two. TBH if there hadn't been a caravan already on site we may not have spotted either. The field is essentially flat but very rutted so I guess, if wet, it may be difficult to get traction for motorhomes(?). The grass was quite long on the day we arrived and one touring caravan arrived and left immediately! The freshwater is in one corner of the field and the short hose has to be unscrewed to connect your own fittings for filling motorhome tanks. The grey waste is emptied over the fence on one side of the site. The chemical toilet disposal is outside the entrance to the site and wasn't quite as bad as it looked! There was no hand sanitiser or COVID measures in place although the CAMC members present were well versed in taking personal responsibility for this. Ensure that you have cash to pay on arrival. There is a gate to a camping field for tents (no obvious facilities at all??) which uses the same entrance but don't assume that it's OK to walk along the track with your dog, as I did on our final morning, only to have Mr Blackwell come out into his garden and shout "Oi you're not supposed to be through there get out there now!'. Our dealings with Mrs Blackwell were all very pleasant.

Idyllic and peaceful location

Armley Lodge Farm
We enjoyed a five night stay here. Very peaceful setting with views of Rutland Water. Working farm with horses, pigs, and chickens which simply added to the gorgeous rural setting. No welcome given so had to establish where facilities were ourselves, as did others. Some confusion over people arriving having not booked in, and also people arriving much earlier than 12 noon which made the site busy at times - it’s a very small field for 5 let alone any more. If you’re looking for a good quiet Rutland Water location for walks and cycling then this is perfect. We cycled into Oakham for shops - as there is no local shop. Local pub The Finches superb - but book if you wish to dine there. If you’re wanting to get stuck into busier areas of Rutland Water eg Whitwell and Normanton or the bird reserves, then you will need a vehicle unless you’re a keen fit cyclist!
