Why stay here ...

Stamford Club Site is set in a tranquil, open meadowland location surrounded by attractive woodland. The caravan park is a superb place for leisurely wanderings in lovely landscapes; birds, deer and a profusion of wild flowers will delight the senses. Within a short distance from the caravan park you have the town of Stamford - one of the most perfectly preserved stone towns in England, it has a rich history and boasts many historic medieval buildings (BBC's Middlemarch was filmed here).

Also within easy access from Stamford Club Site, you can opt for a romantic cruise on the Rutland Belle or enjoy a scenic walk along the 27 miles of Rutland Water shoreline. There are cycling paths and forest walks conveniently leading from the caravan site entrance and for garden lovers, Geoff Hamilton's horticultural legacy - Barnsdale Gardens at Oakham - are superb. Tucked away in the woods is a wildlife hide, ideal for watching birds, insects and other wildlife such as deer.

Please note: this site does not have a toilet block.

Excellent Site

Had a lovely stay here early October. Initially booked for 3 nights but extended to 7. Staff were extremely friendly & welcoming. The dog walks are fantastic. Unless you decided to go off the tracks, the paths are gravel/tarmac which is a massive plus keeping you and your dog free from mud, particularly this time of year! I loved this site, and will be back next year. Anne & Barney (Yorkie).

Very pleasant and peaceful site

We enjoyed four pleasant days at this site in early October. The site is clean, tidy and well looked after and the site wardens are very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be going back again.

Lovely Stamford

Great site in a lovely picturesque area , easy to access from the east Midlands via A52 /A1. Fineshade woods with walking trials are excellent with a super variety of walks suitable for everyone , the cafe on site is extremely good also. The amount of wildlife is in abundance especially the number of red kites . Stamford is a shoppers dream & is only 15 minutes drive away , the Georgian buildings make this town a pleasure to visit. We throughly enjoyed our week's visit & will return next year for sure. Lovely , peaceful well kept site & the relief wardens were excellent also.

First trip

This was our first outing with our new to us van. We received a lovely cheerful welcome. After pitching up all set up we were informed that we were pitched the wrong way. This was my mistake being a newby. We said that we were willing to turn the van in the right direction. But no the pitches were rearranged to accommodate my mistake. The staff were so helpful. We were impressed with the peace and tranquility the site had to offer. I think we will become regular visitors here.

Brilliant

A great site, well kept and with super people running it. Shortly after arrival a massive gust of wind took our canopy off its mountings and over the motorhome. Paul and Ginny were brilliant, we managed to save the situation getting the canopy down from the roof and stored away. The site is well kept and is a testiment to their care and attention. If you dont enjoy this venue then you are in the wrong place. If you go into Stamford, be sure of where the best parking is for your vehicle. On the Saturday morning they held a Macmillian Cancer coffee morning, yet still had time to assist stowing the canopy into the van, they desrved to have made a great conrtibution to a magnificant cause. Well done. Anthony Richards - West Midlands
