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.

Great site

Great little site in a brilliant location with access to the forest and the miles of well marked walking and cycling routes, my dog was in heaven. The site is close to lots of very picturesque villages, quite a few within walking distance and also just a short drive from Rutland water which is worth a visit. On site the wardens couldn't have been friendlier they were there to welcome us in and certainly helped make our stay enjoyable always finding time for a quick chat and to offer help and advice. The day my grandchildren visited the wardens made them very welcome and even got them all doing a treasure hunt around the site which they loved. Just outside the site there is an adventure play area which is accessed via the forest trails so its safe as there's no roads to cross and there's also a children's park and café in the NT site next door. I have read comments about weeds growing on the hardstanding pitches I never noticed any on the hardstanding pitches near us and although we had a grass pitch the wardens worked tirelessly to keep the site in tiptop order We would definitely recommend this site tor both families and also to people wanting a quiet break and we will be returning again sometime

2019 Season

This site is close to home and therefore used by Fiona and I regularly. This year has been the best experience on this site because of the care taken by the wardens. The grounds are great with the better weather.The garden that has been created by Gill and Paul are an oasis of calm. The once busy cut through has been tended and improved. The little trail for children has been well received. The biggest bonus has been the dog wash which has been a godsend. The care and attention to detail provided by these wardens is the best we have experienced. Their positive and cheery attitude enhances any length of time spent at the site. The site location is excellent for dog walking or slowing the pace of life.

Lovely quiet site

A great welcome from the Wardens Paul and Jill on arrival, this is a great site in a lovely location being on the edge of a stunning woodland with a variety of walks and cycling, there is a cafe and cycle hire too. If you have a dog this is doggy heaven. We will definately be visiting again, but taking our bikes next time. Thank you to the Wardens for a very in depth chat about the job of a Warden which was very interesting, with some great stories.

Wonerful site. Busy but Peaceful

Stayed here July 2019 with a caravan. Most pitches were occupied but the site didn't seem busy, although it was outside the school holiday period. There are Forestry Commission woods accessible directly from the site and these are marked with several trails of 2,3 and 5 miles, but you can mix and match if you want. Ideal for walking, cycling and horse riding. My Wife is disabled and can walk only a few metres, but, using an electric bike, she managed and enjoyed the 5 mile circuit twice (2 separate days) and the 3 mile circuit on a third day. The trails are well signed, have benches on which to rest, nature related activities for children and photo opportunities. We didn't go off site and didn't feel the need to, but were told that Rutland Water is a 15 minute drive away and also has excellent walking and cycling facilities. We will certainly be visiting again.

Peaceful (except for weekends)

Been here several times over 10-12 years. Great location but bit of a hike to a village. The surrounding woodlands are great for dog walking AND excellent for those restricted to wheels (such as wheelchairs and mobility scooters). Published site info should state this! No playground or toilets so deters families although usual 'invasion' at weekends. Expect pitches to be sloping as most are. Wardens are terrific especially Mark and Lynne who do the reliefs. .Going back again later this year. Sadly too many members seem to think that the 5mph speed limit only applies to others, not them! On the whole very much recommended.
