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

Always love going to this site, immaculately clean and well organised. We were greeted by the best Wardens ever this weekend, great sense of humour, friendly and very helpful. We had a problem with electric (first trip out this year) and Warden saw us struggling and came and helped. Looking forward to returning again this year.

A generally Peaceful site

Just had a relaxing weekend at this site to try out our new motorhome (we have been caravanners up until now). Helpful warden with advice about filling and emptying water - thankyou. Standard of upkeep is as you expect from Club sites - i.e. high It is the case that one side of the site is adjacent to the refurbished visitor centre carpark - being there over a weekend it was well used as was the adjacent kids play area. We were pitched next to the car park but did not find the noise in the least intrusive. I would expect it is much quieter during the week. The work is nearly complete (there was some machinery working when we arrived on the Friday) until they tree plant in the autumn. From late afternoon when the visitors left and through the evening the site was very quiet - only disturbance was the perennial dog barking & yapping! There are two wonderful adventure type play areas - one as mentioned near the carpark, the other in the woods. Lots of walks through the woods and in surrounding area. Wonderful to hear the cuckoo - even at 4.30am when I got up to go to the loo!!

Lack of important information

The forestry commission are making changes to the car park adjoining the caravan club site and it is a construction site along with dust and machinery noise during the day.Trees and bushes along the boundary have been removed so people using the new car park have full vision of the the caravan park and vice versa. It has changed the character of the caravan site and club members should be made aware of this work .

Usually a Quiet Site

Normally a lovely quiet and peaceful site which we enjoy very much. Wardens work very hard keeping the site so smart and tidy. Unfortunately the Forestry Commission are revamping their car park that runs down the side of the site. They have removed trees and shrubs so we seem to be part of the car park. The work starts around 8ish and is nearing completion but unfortunately there is a lot of dust from the lorries leaving the site right behind the caravans. Bushes have been replanted along the boundary fence but will take time to grow, once established it will be so much better. The is a Forestry Commission restaurant just outside the site entrance which is very hand for lunch! We will be back again!

Relaxing break

Relaxing break away with my dog's who had lots of fun in the woods which are next to the site. Great walks, bike rides, and a gruffello trail for the little ones. Not much else to do on site apart from chill and relax. The staff work so hard and are amazing at what they do. We'll definitely be back!
