We arrived in a torrent of rain and 60mph winds we mad? "yes" but then no one can say we are good weather caravanners can they? The owner Vincent assisted by another chap got me setup, not many owners would turn out in that weather to do that. Views off this CL are fantastic being high above Wymondham village even in the grip of a storm, it was stunning. Solarlights now line the route in to the CL (nice touch) I had a heart shaped cake made, this being Valentines night! me being the only male in our unit, it was proved to be a shrewed move..... thanks SarahJayne, who is the owners wife and owner of the on site Tearooms. We had a meal at the Berkeley Arms, not cheap but locally Sourced and top quality. Beers are well kept as well. The pub is only 10 minutes walk from the CL and a 20 minute stagger back! We also had breakfast in the Tearooms, which was good value for money and freshly made. Would we come back again? The East family say "YES YOU BET"

We stayed 4 nights at this 200 year old Windmill,but far younger site, come Tea rooms and small shop outlets. Sarahjayne and Vincent(The owners) will give you a good welcome and smile. We were taking a break, but also marking my daughters 18th birthday. When we found this site we noted that Sarahjayne home cooked most of her products, so we asked her would she be able to bake a cake for my daughter and boy did she rise to the challange(watch out Mary Berry GBBO) she produced a fantastic chocolate cake decorated with a choc rich cream, service at its best brought to our caravan door. The site sits on a hill with views all around, the owners have leveled the top quite well, so we did not need blocks as advised. The Windmill was open to view foc with a kind request to donate towards its on going retoration, something we were happy to do. We also had a meal down the Berkeley Arms within walking distance of the site, good beer and food enjoyed by us. Sarahjayne also did meals at the Tea rooms, so we had dinner there one day as well! it was top class freshly produced. This site is going to be popular and is already seeing returning members, I will for sure be going back, as soon as I can. Take a walk round this charming village indeed follow the historic walk, its a gem.
In general agreement with the previous review. Owners very friendly and welcoming. Lovely views from the CL field, which was more than large enough and fairly even. Facilities were good and handy. We pitched near the hedge and experienced a little noise from the road, but only during the day and early evening - much of the time it wasn't really noticeable. The dogs enjoyed the woodland walk - so much to sniff at. TV reception and mobile phone reception was good. All the shop owners were friendly and helpful, and the cafe seemed reasonably priced, even though we didn't try it. The windmill is very popular with cyclists - the cafe was packed on Sunday morning! The owners explained some of the plans they've got for the site - as well as more hookup points, they're considering a toilet and shower block. Well placed for the areas attractions - like Rutland Water. Would we go back? Most definitely!
