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.

Exceeded our expectations

Stamford Caravan Club Site
Don't be fooled into thinking that this site is actually in Stamford because it isn't, its about a 20 minute drive away. For us it didn't matter as we are in a caravan so have a car, but if you are in a motorhome there are limited things to do within walking distance. But if walking is your thing then Fineshade Woods are on your doorstep (literally), fantastic for dogs and children with the Gruffalo Trail to be enjoyed by all, you can then relax in their coffee shop next to the site. Stamford itself is lovely with a wonderful artisan market which we thoroughly enjoyed. Site easy to find, well kept and when we were there very peaceful. We loved the area and will be back for longer next time.

Lovely quiet site

Stamford Caravan Club Site
Our 2nd stay here this year, I was surprised at how quiet it was in early October especially as the discount made it just over £56 for 2 adults mid week. The site is well cared for, wardens had closed the grass pitches ready for closing but plenty of hardstanding to choose from. Lovely friendly greeting on arrival. Fineshade woods have numerous walks with a coffee shop. Looking forward to returning this year.

Completely Peaceful

Stamford Caravan Club Site
A beautiful site, very well-kept (although no toilet or wash facilities), completely peaceful and very dog friendly. Lots of walks in the nearby forest and a lovely coffee shop in the visitor centre. Cheerful, helpful wardens who worked hard to maintain high standards. Nearby Stamford is a short drive and well worth a visit for shopping, coffee shops and even Waitrose. We had a thoroughly relaxing break here and will definitely return.

Our getaway for peace and quiet site.

Stamford Caravan Club Site
We stay here quite often. It's a lovely site for peace and quiet and relaxing woodland walks. The Wardens are really pleasant and helpful. The site is becoming a little tired and could do with more hard standings but that aside, this is a lovely site in idyllic settings with Forestry Visitor Centre and Cafe just outside the Site Gates.

Great Break!

Stamford Caravan Club Site
Thanks to the hard work of Paul and Gill the site maintains a peaceful feel. This is despite the increase in visitor numbers throughout the week and weekend. The wardens are never off duty and this has to be admired. The relief wardens on the very busy bank holiday weekend did a good job and the site really peaceful for such a busy time.
