Why stay here ...
Whether it’s a holiday or simply a few days break, we have a 5 pitch site located on the border of rural Leicestershire and Rutland. Whilst the site is peaceful and remote – its just a 5 minute walk from the beautiful village of Knossington and the famous Fox and Hounds Pub.
There are plenty of lovely walks around our farm as well as footpaths taking you to some glorious local spots. The amazing Gates Garden Centre, Restaurant and Farm Shop is a short walk away and can be mostly accessed via a footpath. The roads are mostly very quiet – you are more likely to encounter a tractor or a horse than a commuter!
Each pitch is generous in size with plenty of room for an awning – but blocks may be required. There is an EHU on every pitch. Our site also offers chemical disposal waste unit, general waste and recycling points’ with water points closeby.
The market town of Oakham is just over 5 miles away and you can get a fabulous view of Rutland Water as you drive into Oakham. Markets are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays. As well as a Oakham Castle there is the Rutland County Museum and the Rutland Farm Park. Oakham hosts a fine array of food and drink outlets and superb butchers, as well as Rutland’s only McDonalds!! There is a Tesco, Coop, Aldi and Lidl for supplies.
Other towns within easy reach are Stamford, Uppingham, Market Harborough, Melton Mowbray and Corby
