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.

Nearby towns:

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

Other places of interest:

Rutland Water offers an Aqua Park, cycle hire, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and day launch permits as well as fly fishing.

Peaceful idyllic setting.

Sconsboro Hill CL
We recently enjoyed a two night start here with our two dogs. The setting is so relaxing and beautiful. Plenty of rolling countryside and footpaths. A short walk up to the quaint village of Knossington which boasts a very friendly pub serving amazing food. There is also a garden centre and farm shop approx 1.25 miles away which is well worth a visit. The site is really well kept and has good EHU points, water access and chemical waste disposal etc.

Another relaxing weekend!

Sconsboro Hill CL
This was our second visit to this site and we were not disappointed for our first trip following coming out of lockdown. We spent a lovely, peaceful weekend walking in beautiful countryside and generally relaxing, the ideal way to celebrate being able to go out in our motorhome. We can highly recommend this friendly site. Thank you Mr and Mrs Gibson.

Relaxing weekend

Sconsboro Hill CL
This is a beautiful place in which to spend a relaxing weekend. The site is so peaceful, surrounded by fields with only a herd of inquisitive cows and wildlife for company, absolute bliss. The footpaths are well marked, although not that well used so occasionally sturdy clothing is required. We spent some time watching the birds of which there were many varieties. We also noticed that the local bus passes the end of the driveway. It goes both ways at least twice a day on Saturday and as the village of Knossington is only just down the road would be handy to catch for travelling further afield. Thank you Mr and Mrs Gibson for an amazing weekend!

Perfect bank holiday weekend

Sconsboro Hill CL
I can't believe that no one has posted a review before. This is a real nice off the grid site with open views of the countryside. The entrance could be a hit tight if coming from the north but from the knossington end it was fine. The grass was well cut and the site does slope but we didn't need any levelling blocks. The only downside is there is no tap to flush out the chemical waste. The is a purpose built disposal point but no tap. Could also do with a bin on site too although we did dispose of waste at the farmhouse. Will definitely be coming back. We walked all weekend from the campsite and didn't need the car. Very nice pub in knossington.
