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.

Very peaceful and well maintained site

We stayed here for a few days as a family of 3. We absolutely loved it. Very quiet and well located for walks in the forest. The site is easy to access off the A43 and is right next door to the Forestry Commission Visitor Centre with fully appointed Café, Toilets and bike hire should you want it. There are great kids activities (playgrounds within very close walking distance and a Gruffalo Trail with a 7ft carved Gruffalo to welcome any little people who may want to fid him! Staff were friendly and helpful as we always find. A great stay and one we would return to without hesitation

Fantastic site

One of our favourite sites, set in Fineshade woods. Site is well maintained, wardens very cheery and helpful. Great walks in the woods, hubby was lucky enough to see the deer while on the early morning dog walk. Delicious ice cream at Grounds coffee shop next door & Stamford market on Friday is not to be missed. Looking forward to our return visit in July.

Great experience

So pleased we chose this site for our first club experience. The wardens were incredibly friendly and helpful even making sure we were okay after our first night. We really couldn’t fault them or the site. It was clean and tidy with the addition of sanitiser at the Motorhome service station. We loved the site and the pitch which Paul suggested was ideal for our needs though you did need ramps. We bought the small local map and although we didn’t use it this time we will definitely be returning here. There was no children’s play area which I guess may have been a bit of a downside for the families that were there but it did mean that the site was mainly adults and hence extremely quiet.

Lockdown release Monday 12th April 21

Had booked this site online a few months before, fortunately for us Boris allowed campsites to reopen on the first day of our chosen break. The warden called us a few days before to take payment and asked if we would prefer hard standing or a grass pitch and then gave us a few pitches to choose from, discussing where they were etc. We also agreed an arrival time slot. Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly male warden (sorry didn't catch either wardens names ) and given a welcome pack in a plastic wallet with the site information and latest Covid guidelines, he explained where our pitch was and information regarding the pack, track and trace etc. Pitch 13 was perfect, hard standing, sun at the front of van for most of the day, close to service points and not far from the gate that enters the woodland. Did need levelling blocks. Considering this was the first day of release from lockdown the site did not feel busy or noisy. The site was well maintained, bins emptied regularly and the service points were sanitised regularly too (hand sanitizer provided at service points). Different lengths of walking and cycling routes sign posted through the woodland. Cycle hire, tea room and children's play area at entrance to woodland carpark. Plenty of places to visit near by. One to visit again.

Thank you

What a year it’s been, however I’d like to say a massive thanks to Paul and Gill for an excellent recovery from the pandemic. The warmth and friendliness was outstanding. You really made a massive difference to a very difficult time. You made a real relaxing difference to my front line working. Paul newbery.
