Nice site, shame about the CEO

Nice site with easy access. The adjacent country park is great for dog walking and bird watching. Not great for TV reception and it's difficult to align a satellite dish through the adjacent tall trees. The staff were generally very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the CEO who is surly, churlish and unhelpful. He probably needs reminding what makes paydays possible.

Peace and Quiet

Well kept site, grounds are great and if you have children there is lots of space for them to play while you have a well earned brew at the on site cafe. We will be back again as still have loads to see in area.

One of the best CL's - what more could you ask for!

Easy access to the site – use the left hand entrance which leads directly to a large car park. Unusually there is both a Camping & Caravan CS and a Caravan & Motorhome Club CL on the same site. The entrance to both are clearly marked – the entrance to the CL is on the right as you enter The Lodge Trust car park - follow the clearly signed directions which lead you onto the CL field. The entrance to the CS is straight ahead then turn left to enter the CS field. The main difference between the two sites is that the CL has 5 large hardstanding pitches with large lawned areas to relax once set up whereas the CS pitches are on grass. The CL hardstanding pitches have 16 amp electric hook up points, are all flat and level and each are clearly marked with posts and pitch numbers. When we made our reservation we were allocated a pitch which we found to be excellent, both in space as well as being easy to access, even for a large twin axle caravan such as our Buccaneer Schooner. The CL is very attractively laid out, with flower and shrub borders as you enter the CL field. There is also a wooden gate leading onto an adjacent playing field plus a gravel path which takes you around the perimeter of the field – good for a stroll before turning-in for the evening! Within the grounds there is a café with inside / outside seating plus an information point and book exchange which are in the same building. A separate building contains a laundry (limited open times) and where the Elsan and recycling bins are also situated. There are several wooden chalets for hire – ideal for those members who have family and friends who do not own a caravan or motorhome. We found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the site - we will no doubt return at some future date. Finally local attractions include a number of very attractive villages with thatched houses, flower displays etc. For those who like cycling and walking, Rutland Water is only a short distance (bike hire available) plus the area is surrounded by many quiet lanes and bridleways in which to explore.

Fabulous site, super play area & cafe too but also quiet & secluded 5*

Highest of recommendations for this wonderful & unique CL. Superb adventure play ground including zip wire, woodland walk & cycle path! Lovely cafe serving delicious food and very helpful, friendly staff. Really couldn't ask for more! Almost didn't leave a review as would like to keep it a secret ;)

EXCELLENT SITE as always!

Just returned from our annual May Day Bank Holiday weekend visit to The Lodge Trust. This is a fabulous CL so well kept, peaceful, tranquil, AND there is a super cafe on site for drinks and snacks. The location of the site is ideal for visiting Rutland Water, Oakham Stamford etc. and the many wonderful villages in the area with there magnificent cottages / houses. The site facilities are kept to a very high standard. There is a laundry available for CL users. wifif is very good. The play area and parkland on site are super for any young members of the family and will keep them entertained for a long time. An area with lot's to offer. We shall be back again next year and cannot wait!

Relaxing long weekend

This is a lovely peaceful site with the added bonus of a restaurant. On our arrival we sampled the coffee and cake then on Saturday morning we met some family members for a delicious breakfast. The restaurant is beautifully clean, bright and the welcome we received was warm. There is plenty of walking with a variety of routes but as they are not particularly well maintained/signposted an OS map or better still a GPS system is needed. The roads are not too busy so any roadwork is quite safe, unusual even in the countryside these days! For those who are less able to walk then there are some lovely grounds to explore with some super apparatus to use if one has young children, plenty of opportunity to burn off surplus energy and work up an appetite. We would definitely visit again.

EXCELLENT SITE just got BETTER!

Have been visiting this CL for a number of years over the May Day Bank Holiday Weekend and it is always a very pleasant and relaxing visit. Very easy access to site and on to pitches (all hard standing). Pitches overlook large open grassland / park area. This year the park had brand new children's adventure play equipment - climbing frames, swings, zip wire. Also several adult keep fit machines (outdoors) were available. The cafe was, once again, very good and the staff very friendly and welcome. Perfect site for young / old to relax and enjoy the countryside. We had a very pleasant day in nearby Stamford walking in the grounds of Burghley House and then around the town with its lovely old buildings. Second day super walk in the countryside around Exton / Greetham. Both days very enjoyable. Before leaving we visited the nearby Hambleton Bakery (artisan) to stock up on their delicious bread and cakes. A great weekend break. We WILL be back.

Great CL

Having stayed a number of times, we knew the pitch we wanted. The online booking is excellent and great communication prior to arrival. Close to Oakham and Stamford. Lots of dog walks on and around the site and the local pub does fine food and real ale. Happy days!

SUPER SITE

Arrived on a Sunday afternoon, we were the only caravan on site for a couple of days. Five hard standing pitches so can point the caravan towards the sun. ( British weather permitting ). Not a lot of space for hitching etc, but easy enough with a little thought. On the edge of a little park so preety good views. Nice little cafe on site. Lovely villages in area and Oakham only a few miles away. Definately be coming back to this lovely site.
