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.

Would have stayed BUT!

Booked to stay from 11th for 6 nights. On 7th I was informed that a hospital appointment had been brought forward. I contacted the site by phone to shorten our visit to 4 nights. I was informed that the price quoted for 6 nights would not be reduced as this was their policy. I was disgusted and even though the lady on the phone said she would have a word with the boss because of the circumstances I was so annoyed that I rang back later and cancelled the whole stay. Of course I forfeited my £20 deposit but no way was I paying for 6 nights to stay 4.

Never Again.

Visited this site over the Easter weekend, this was our first and will be our last visit. We had power cuts throughout the weekend and got told a different story every time we rang reception to see what was happening. Not once throughout the weekend were we contacted by anyone on site to explain what the issue was with the power supply. Some of the wardens were very rude with one on Saturday night saying if you are not happy why don't you just go home. This is not the kind of attitude you expect on a site you are paying over £30 a night for. The charges for the pool are very expensive and the showers in the pool area did not work when we visited on Sunday. The approach road is a complete joke, single track( although they have started to widen it in places) riddled with potholes and flooded for most of the way down. The location of the site is excellent with easy access to the village and surrounding areas but the customer service falls well below the normal standard of caravan club sites.

Disappointed

My wife and I have stayed at this site many times, mainly in summer and found In the past everything to fine and in working order, with staff both helpful and respectful. Having stayed here over Easter we had power cuts, lasting for sometimes hours ( back up generators not working also). We had a water shortage on Sunday ( if this was your idea of a April fool, it was not funny).Pipes where freezing on serviced pitches because there was insufficient protection from the cold.Road towards the site is appalling but in their defence it does look like they are trying to sort it out .Communication between staff and paying guests was terrible . I have never took the time to write a review of any kind but felt it had to change. The site needs to improve before we think about coming back again especially in winter.

Easter break

Just visited this site and was not happy, paid £30 per night for electric only to not have any Friday and Saturday night. Apparently site had problems and the emergency generator failed both nights, NOT GOOD for start of season but apparently this is an on going thing according to other people on site. Showers were mainly running cold as well. The drains blocked and some people on site who had paid for super pitches said they didn’t have any water. They advertise swimming at £4 adults and £2.50 children but fail to state this is for half an hour sessions, you find this out from a notice in the toilet block. They also have a play area but the small children slides and play house poses health and safety risks because they are not secured to the ground which enables the older children to dismantle them. Not at all good in my eyes. The roadway is was totally flooded because it is dipped lower than the fields so all the mud and water congregates on the roadway. Staff didn’t even apologise when I left for the inconvenience of having no electric which surprised me. This site needs to improved as it is in a fantastic location but has far too many

Not one of the best

Site is large and maintained adequately. Wardens are rude and not at all welcoming. The site has no lights so is completely pitch black during dark hours which poses a risk should you need to venture out. Approach road is narrow and uneven. Will not be returning.
