Pleasant site convenient for Oakham and Rutland Water

Dowry Farm
We stayed here for 5 nights this August and like the previous reviewer there was some noise from builders but it wasn't continuous and since it was house renovations then it will likely be all done before too long. Other than the temporary building noise the site was generally quite peaceful with not much traffic on the road that passes it. Oakham is only five miles away and quite a nice country town, Rutland Water is a similar distance and we actually cycled there (off-road) direct from the site. As always I've made a video of our stay that you can view here.- https://youtu.be/k_sUgWlVglg

Lovely area, but not peaceful

Dowry Farm
Lovely remote spot, ideal for numerous walks from the site (eg to Launde Abbey and back via fields), and horse watching. From the reviews, was really looking forward to my stay. However, despite these, it isn't peaceful or quiet anymore, as loads of building work going on. It is very laid back, the owner is friendly, but it's all a bit of a shambles. Woken at 7.30am by v loud builder radio, and while I didn't want to, had to eventually ask for it to be turned down. The field you camp in is pretty, but isn't anywhere near the 2 acres listed. Two nice pitches, with lovely views from the corner one (Pitch 1), which is easily the best by far, but not the other three. If you are sensitive to electronic noise, this isn't the site for you, and best avoided. There's a domestic sewage treatment plant by the gate to the field, which hums and chunters away day and night, with one pitch right next to it. The second evening, after I'd moved as far away from this as I could, the place was mostly quiet, so you could hear the birds, sheep and relax. Lovely! Unfortunately, around 9pm, a really loud drier or generator or something started up in the farm by the entrance to the site, very close by, and was still going well after 11, by the time I eventually managed to get to sleep (aided by earplugs and woolly hat/duvet over ears). Sadly, despite booking three nights, I left early the next day, as the site wasn't what I'd hoped for.

Lovely peaceful site.

Just spent four nights on this lovely peaceful CL. Had a restful stay despite the appalling weather. Looking forward to going back next year in better weather. Very friendly and helpful owner.

Great peaceful get away

Dowry Farm
First things first. The site fee is now £6 a night not £5 but it’s still a cheap site. If you want peace, bird song, middle of nowhere, little phone signal, loads of walks, friendly owner, then this is the site for you. 1.5 miles up the road is Launde Abbey with lovely gardens that are free to walk around and a reasonably priced cafe too. It’s main use is to house stressed vicars and monks. Who knew there was such a thing!? Another fantastic stay and caravanning the way it should be without the need for club houses etc etc. A good old back to nature trip away to unwind. Perfect!
