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.

Fantastic Restful Week

Thank you Gill for a splendid weeks break, just what we needed, nothing to do, nowhere we needed to go or be, just sit back and relax. Loved your husbands chalkboard sayings. Shame about all that rain but certainly cleared the air, water drained away very quickly and the sun shone on us all, magic. On our way home now and back to normal, until next time. Thank you

Good spot

Central location for rutland water,stamford,peterborough.well kept site with Friendly wardens,plenty doing locally of you enjoy walks and cycling. As previously mentioned,”no visitors” but some are ignoring this rule. The club also need to look at arrival / departure times such as off by noon and no arrivals til 13:00.it was farcical when we arrived with at least 6 units arriving simultaneously and meeting units leaving bang on noon and blocking access roads for all...the access road is also narrow with passing places . Will return next year hopefully

Lovely site, friendly wardens, clearly says on entering site, ‘no visitors allowed’ this was abused by our neighbours on 2 days, is it one rule for some and not for anyone else.

A favourite.

This is one of our favourite sites and we have been visiting for many years. We didnt visit last year, but it was great to be back. We love the new Dog/Bike wash area. Such a great addition and I'm sure welcomed by all dog owners and muddy boots. Wardens were welcoming and friendly as always. Once thing I was less impressed with was the sanitising spray. At first I thought It was a fantastic idea, until I used it. Then I realised it was the one thing that everyone was touching, but the one thing that no one was cleaning. It needs a hand gel sanitiser for your hands not a spray bottle for the taps/bins etc. The spray bottle is the first and last thing you use, which means you walk off with a potentially infected hand. You pick up the spray bottle, having been touched most of the site and spray the tap, then touch the tap with a potentially contaminated hand from the spray bottle which defeats the object of having just sprayed the tap, when completed you repeat the process of spraying the tap and replacing the disinfectant spray. You then tootle off having touched your aqua roll, pull handle, door keys, door handle, awning zip etc. It gives a false sense of security and I'm sure not many think to wash their hands after filling up the aqua roll, afterall you have used the disinfecting spray on the tap!? Also, can those of you with dogs who constantly bark PLEASE have a thought for others who are also trying to enjoy their holiday. I have a dog, but I wouldnt dream of letting him bark incessantly and until gone 10pm like some did. I know they all get a little excitable at times, but we as dog owners have a responsibility. It's down to us to control not for others to endure. Anyway, give this site a go if you haven't already. It's great and perfect for a long chilled out weekend or a week out and about exploring the area.

Which is the friendliest site, then?

OK. Bold title, I admit. And there are a lot of good things about this site - its location, its shady pitch, the walks. But the site wardens are definitely in contention for being the jolliest, and most helpful, that you will find. We actually needed a pitch at short notice and they helped. But observation makes me think they are this good every day. So if you are in the Stamford region, here you go. A great site, with great wardens.
