Why stay here ...

Rutland Caravan and Camping Site is a family run holiday destination set in the heart of lovely Rutland, offering you the superb opportunity to explore England's smallest county and a location renowned for its picturesque villages and towns. The caravan site is adjacent to the village of Greetham, through which the Viking Way and various other footpath networks pleasantly meander. The village offers three traditional pubs serving hearty food, as well as fun activities which include tennis and badminton courts, a bowling green, pentanque, football, cricket and a children's play area.

Golfing enthusiasts staying at the Rutland Caravan and Camping Site are spoilt for choice with one of Rutland's finest clubs nearby. Greetham Valley boasts two 18-hole courses, a 9-hole 3 par course, driving range, club house and excellent Pro Shop. Rutland certainly lives up to its motto 'Multim in Parvo', which means 'Much in Little'. Rutland Water, within easy reach of the caravan park, offers sailing, cycling, fishing, rock climbing, as well as a fine nature reserve.

An indoor heated swimming pool is available onsite (fees apply).

Great site for dog walking...Beware of negative reviews

Rutland Caravan and Camping Site
A large site with seperate adult and family sections, we were in adult. Was met with a warm welcome and all wardens were friendly and helpful. The road leading into the site can be a bit bumpy, but site has perfectly good road. The garden paths were a bit weedy but work has started on that. Great for dogs, with large fields and wooded walk, both on and off lead direct from site. Overall, a really good visit

Warm welcome - then it all went down hill

Rutland Caravan and Camping Site
We originally booked this site in January 2022 as a group booking for 3 couples in the adults only site where we were all to be sited together. Unfortunately one of the couples had to pull out leaving just the pair of us. On arrival the warden was most welcoming. He knew we were part of a group and after dealing with our particular booking he told us our pitch number, showed us the map and amenities etc, and off we went. We should have double checked then that our friends were allocated the pitch next to us, but we didn't. Two hours later our friends arrived and we were quite surprised to see that they were allocated a pitch next door but one to us. We thought that there would be no problem with them moving to the next pitch. My friend went to see the warden (not the one we saw), and when asked if he could move on to the pitch next to us, the warden was quite rude and said NO! Our friend queried why not, and was told that that particular pitch had been requested and that the reservation was for a week! We wish we had gone up to the reception as we were the ones to make the group booking, but we decided to leave it. On the Saturday a lone caravanner turned up with her little dog. On the Sunday morning our friends (also dog owners), got into conversation with the lady. Not only was she not booked in for a week (she was leaving on Tuesday), but she had NEVER been to the campsite before - in fact she was totally new to caravanning - and couldn't understand herself why we weren't pitched together, as we were always to-ing and fro-ing between our two outfits. Incidentally, on the Saturday our friends got talking to a couple with dogs in the local pub. The subject got round to the campsite and the wardens. Unbelievably the same thing had happened to them. They had made a group booking previously and their group were also split up. They have not returned to the campsite since. The site's website states that they accept groups of up to 4 - but why advertise this if they have no intention of pitching their customers together? The attitude of the wardens certainly put a downer on the weekend. We could not fault the campsite, the facilities were excellent - the wardens - however - seriously need to go on a customer service course. Unfortunately we will not be booking at this campsite again - nor will our friends - so that's 2 if not 3 potential returnees who will not be returning!

Good clean site but spoilt by the unwelcoming staff in the office. I’ve read through their reviews and can see this has been mentioned by others.

Over night stop over

Rutland Caravan and Camping Site
Clean and tidy site, however entrance area outside of the site was scruffy and dilapidated. Toilet block was warm, with lovely hot showers. Easy to book, good pre-trip communication. However our visit was spoilt by very unfriendly welcome from wardens on arrival, most unhelpful when we asked if we could leave before 9.00am in the morning. System of handing in membership card for barrier key does not work outside of office hours. Would definitely not recommend, nor use again.

This is a good site

Rutland Caravan and Camping Site
We came for 3 nights and stayed for 4 . The site is well laid out with one half for families and the other for adults only. The hard standing pitches ( we are in a motorhome in January so need hard standing) were pretty level and are fully serviced, which makes the pitch price good value The facilities are more than adequate, the reviewer who complained about them was too harsh. Yes they aren't brand new but the underfloor heating was lovely, there was plenty of hot water, what more do you really need? The dog walk is a generous size . There were dog bins at each entrance and therefore never far to dispose of the bag. The dog shower with hot and cold water was a bonus. The laundry facilities were sensibly priced. The staff are very pleasant and extremely helpful. Even the gardener was lovely and friendly. The on site cafe/restaurant does excellent pizzas , they are proper Italian ones, thin and crispy not like the rubbish you get in certain fast food chains. In addition there are two good pubs within a short walk. Rutland Water is about 5 miles away so include an extra 10 miles to the total cycle ride. On the way there the Hambleton bakery is well worth a visit for bread and cakes. This is a lovely area to visit and so we hope to return and wholeheartedly recommend the site
