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.

Not sure about this site

Rutland Caravan and Camping Site
I read the previous reviews for this site & normally like to make my own mind up, wish I hadn't. The site is definitely very unkempt, weeds and overgrown shrubbery everywhere. The facilities were OK, clean and efficient, but the noise from the neighbours starting at 8.00am is a bit excessive, as is the smoke from their heavyweight wood burner, which was absolutely awful. I know you cant choose your neighbours, but this is not good. Another gripe is the waste pipe, it doesn't work well, mainly because they are expecting you to run water uphill!! On the plus side the dog walk is excellent and the staff were lovely and welcoming. Sorry, but we wont be back, I am just glad we only had 3 nights there.

Neglected

Rutland Caravan and Camping Site
We have been visiting this site for the past 12 years. Sadly, in August 2020 we noticed the site was very unkempt compared to its usual standards. We thought it may be due to a lack of staff; maybe furloughed, but it seems not as it’s the same now. Hard standing pitches full of weeds and large thistles, nettles almost a metre high at the rear of the pitch, hedges remain in-trimmed and all grass areas need cutting too. It’s a shame as it was always so well kept previously. Bathroom areas are very clean. Cafe served fish & chips at £11.50, not worth the price for frozen chips and a very small fish, most probably also boxed & frozen.
