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.

It's so peaceful

Peaceful is how i would rate this site. Plenty of walks with the dog. Is close to Stamford, or going south not far from Corby. Its the second time i have visited this site. But you do have to watch with pitch you choose. Pitches look level, but not in all cases. Our back corners kept sinking into the ground. And we had blocks. Each time we went back to the caravan, it felt like we were sinking backwards. But apart from that, it was perfect.

Stunning autumn colours

The autumn colours of the trees surrounding the site were stunning.  A clean, well laid out site. Excellent care and advice given by the warden who worked hard to make our weeks visit a pleasant one. Daytime toilet facilities available at the nearby visitors centre. This also has a cafe, bike hire and an imaginative kids play area.

Peace and Quite

This was our second visit to this site and it was even better the second time around. We got what we think is the best pitch (not saying which one) and really enjoyed our 6 nights. There is plenty to do in the surround area with houses to visit, gardens and just good scenery. There is lots of wildlife including at night almost too many owls making a noise, but we loved it. Plenty or walks in the Forestry next door and the cafe does a good range of light bites if you get fed up of thinking of luches. We will be back!!!

If you go down in the woods today

youre sure of a big surprise....and we were. this is an excellent location with tons to do especially if you are into walking or cycling. Its great for kids too with a brilliant forestry commision centre next door, loads of play stuff and areas and a tree house in the woods. Cycle hire and a great cafe. The site itself is really well kept and very peaceful tucked into Fineshade woods. The shop is really well stocked and you can get nice food at the centre next door. the lack of toilets or showers is party compensated by facilities in the forestry centre. The area if full of places to visit , stately homes old churches so i can see 4-5 day visit could easilly be filled. Its great for dog walks and there are 2 villages with eating opportunities within 2 miles.

Superb break

I have used this site many times as did my nana nearly 30 years ago. Pete and Sue are lovely and make it all the more welcoming and special. The walks and bike routes are excellent for my twins. I just love the location and the upkeep of the site is excellent! !
