Why stay here ...

Stamford Club Campsite 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 Campsite, 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.

No late checkouts πŸ€”

Stamford Club Campsite
Lovely site and fantastic for dogs and walks - just wish the wardens were consistant with their policy of late checkouts. Very disappointed to be told we couldn't leave later than 12pm on the Sunday because of the narrow lane - only to learn later that others had in fact had later checkouts. Some what ruined the weekend as only there from Friday pm to Sunday am. 😟

Just Bliss

Stamford Club Campsite
This is a wonderful site - a walkers/cyclists paradise!! It is our second visit but definitely won't be the last! Fineshades wood is just round the corner with well marked trails for all abilities! The site is clean, tidy and well run. The wardens (Emma and John) on duty during our visit were chatty, friendly and informative and took a great deal of pride in ensuring that the site looked its best and ensuring that campers had a great time! There is a wild grass area and a seating area to encourage more wildlife onto the site. We saw red Kites; butterflies and whole host of other birds.....what an area!! If you want a very peaceful, laid back holiday, this is definitely the place to come!

"Top Lodge" Revisited

Stamford Club Campsite
After a gap of a few years we have just returned from a weekend stay. The road leading to the site is still pot holed and bumpy, no change there! Pleased to see that the hedging around the site near the forest car park has now grown and that it masks the view of the car park. The site managers have now created a small garden/seating area in the middle of the site, lovely idea. Some of the pitches still slope, even some of the hardstanding, judging by the number of ramps, we saw, although our grass pitch was OK. Walks in the surrounding woods are great for dog's, cafe in the grounds for refreshments afterwards. Plenty of Red Kites to watch too. Facilities clean and tidy, new bike and dog wash at one of the service points, very useful. It's worth noting reception doesn't open until 1pm so early arrivals will have to wait. We enjoyed our stay at this still lovely site.

Wonderful and peaceful break

Stamford Club Campsite
Our third visit to this peaceful site. Just love the area and being able to walk into the woods. The site is immaculate and the wardens friendly and helpful. So many places to visit including Rutland Water, Burghley and National Trust properties. A superb stay with good weather.
