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).

Be careful what you read this is an excellent site

Rutland Caravan and Camping Site
We have just returned from a five day stay at this excellent site. The reviews we had read were not very positive so we took a trip to see for ourselves before booking As we couldn’t find anything of concern so went ahead and booked and were not disappointed. The location is superb, the amenities especially the pool were just outstanding. The staff were welcoming, friendly and very helpful. All pitches are fully serviced which was very good, although please note that the power hook up supply is limited to 10 amps. We were on a family pitch as all adult pitches were booked, we will book in plenty of time for our next visit as we did prefer the adult environment. We would highly recommend the Wheatsheaf pub in the village where we enjoyed a superb lunch with wonderful cuisine and excellent service. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and would highly recommend you to look beyond some of the negative comments that have been made and visit this excellent site to see and judge for yourselves. KEITH & LIS Astin.

Don’t stay at this site - it should not be an affiliated camc site

Rutland Caravan and Camping Site
We arrived on Friday 3rd sept and were greeted by the very scruffy entrance and 2 very rude and unhelpful staff. When we entered the site it too was very unkept, and appeared scruffy too. Pitches were covered in weeds and generally very tired looking. Water in showers were cold and when reported to the warden they advised they would report it but didn’t as the next morning the next wardens informed it hadn’t been reported as they didn’t know around it. Additionally the toilet facilities were barely what you could say was clean and not up to the camc standard. I reported the issues the wardens on duty on the Saturday when we decided to leave early as the site was so depressing and they informed that the site owners continued to have many staff still on furlow and were running on the bare minimum staff even though the site was struggling. Sounds like an other greedy employer who is taking advantage of the government support. What a disgrace.

A tale of two sites

Rutland Caravan and Camping Site
We're here at the moment. I think frustrated describes us well. We booked in december for 2 weeks in july, and had to take a pitch on the camping field because 'we're chocker this weekend'. This was on thursday. There were many, many pitches vacant where we would have liked to pitch, but were told that the pitches were allocated already. Our outfit is a 23ft. Motorhome with car. We have watched outfits, both larger and smaller go into the 'proper' site. The site entrance road is a car-damging mess, and the entrance looks like a haulage yard. The two toilet blocks are very different; one very good, one grubby. The staff reaction to our unhappiness is one of disinterest. We don't write reviews unless unhappy or impressed.

Not Up To Club Standards

Rutland Caravan and Camping Site
Mixed feelings really. First impressions do count a lot and unfortunately our first impressions were not that great. In our opinion: On the plus side 1. Location v good 2. Ablutions v good and clean but no mop/squeegee in gents showers. 3. Swimming pool (extra cost) and cafe on site 4. Option for a grass serviced pitch 5. Good sized pitches 6. The staff we met were friendly and polite Cons 1. Poor entrance with potholes (unavoidable too many of them) 2. Noise and smoke from neighbours. I think there was even a generator(?) noise over night 3. Grey waste drain very small inlet 4. Pitches, grass and hard standings, uneven and full of weeds 5. Grass pitches and general areas, and hedges, not kept trimmed 6. Area around the ablution block not swept or kept tidy - appeared to be lots of debris off the roof (moss perhaps but looked more unpleasant)

Rude Staff and Unkempt Site

Rutland Caravan and Camping Site
We’ve been caravanning for many years and have never met such unfriendly and rude staff. The site entrance was uninviting with large potholes everywhere; a few flowers or shrubs would have helped lift its appearance. The hardstanding pitches were unkempt & covered with weeds as was the paved area around the toilet block. The factory by the entrance billowed out black smoke for much of the day and although the smoke did not affect us, it was unpleasant. Unfortunately, there was a gathering of travellers staying 8 miles away at Oakham during our visit. The police advised that pubs should close their door for the extent of the travellers stay & consequently, the two village pubs closed. The campsite advised that all Rutland pubs were closed, but this was incorrect as we visited a pub in Rutland just 3 miles down the road. When returning from our visit to the pub at 8:45pm we could not enter the site as the barriers were barricaded with heavy machinery. We phoned the emergency contact number and after much discussion the barricades were reluctantly removed. The employee Fred’s attitude was unapologetic as apparently everyone on site knew of the deadline of 9pm (we returned at 8.45pm!). At no point did any staff advise us of the deadline. It is unacceptable to expect holidaymakers to have to return to site before a reasonable time in the evening. We appreciate that an increased level of security is desirable, but this should not be to the detriment of the guests. We were told by Fred to leave our car outside of the site until morning. Given the site’s security concern, then surely any cars left outside the site would be equally at risk. We certainly won’t be visiting here again. Having reads the latest reviews on the Caravan Club site, clearly, we are not alone. in our assessment.
