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.

We were ideally looking for a site close to Rutland Water, but finding no suitable sites with vacancies we opted for Stamford & took advantage of the mid week offer. It was our first visit to the site and area, the weather was a bonus but the location was perfect for our needs. Rutland Water is any easy journey and particularly scenic if you take the B roads. Uppingham and Stamford are worth a visit as are the numerous picturesque villages close by. We will return as there s more we want to explore around the area. Our only negative point, and it is not unique to this site, is the number of visitors with numerous yappy dogs. I am a dog owner but I believe it is time for the CMC to start charging more for 2 or more dogs if only to cover the cost of emptying the waste bins.

A lovely site

We are familiar with the area, having been many times to walk in Fineshade Woods and visit the cafe, but we acquired a caravan only recently and this was our first night out! It was lovely. The manager, Sharon, couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Facilities are fine and the lack of showers and toilets didn't cause any problems. We walked through the woods to the Royal Oak pub for dinner - a bit dark and scary but enjoyable. It's great having the cafe just next to the site and you can hire bikes if you want to. We'll certainly be going back.

Always a favourite site

Stamford has always been a favourite site for us,it has a good variety of pitches either sun/shade grass or hard standing plenty of walks and great for dogs . It would be a good idea in this day and age if there was more security here i.e barriers or cctv at the reception area as there doesn't appear to be anything of that nature- just an open gate. Wardens have a hard time trying to prevent people driving around this site too fast as with many other caravan club sites I think zero tolerance would be the only way . The worst offender was a late arrival after dark towing a caravan at a stupid speed after finding a pitch and then racing around the site to make sure nobody else got it ??????

Dog heaven.

Lovely welcome when we arrived,both sets of wardens very helpful. Site nice and clean. Couldn't ask for anything better for dog's, for the walks alone and for us. Great pub for eating and dog friendly was the Collyweston slater, very nice. Also nice walk from site to the village of Kings Cliffe, to the cross keys dog friendly as well. Peace and quiet, and didn't matter not having a signal. Fabulous 11 days away.

Excellent location for walking and cycling

Our first visit to this site and we will certainly return. Well maintained and run by the managers who are helpful and welcoming. Pitches are good size and the surroundings are excellent. You are in a woodland site with miles of wide flat trails for walking or cycling. You can hire cycles nearby where there is also a cafe for snacks and drinks. The trails are waymarked for directions and distances with a children’s orienteering to seek the “gruffolo”. You can walk directly offsite with no need for the car. Walk to the nearby village by trails to the “Cross Keys” pub which serves good food in pleasant surroundings. Plenty of English Heritage and NT places to visit also nearby are Stamford and Corby should you wish. We are happy to recommend this site to other members.
