We received a warm and friendly welcome from sue. It is a beautiful and well maintained site toilet block was always clean and the honesty box in the shop was a lovely touch, well stocked and loads of books to read, and information about the local area.

We loved to watch the birds feeding from the seed boxes witch were filled everyday. Sunday breakfast is a lovely idea to get to know the people who are staying with them.

We are booked to return in september for a week and we cant wait. All the sites we have visited in 25 years of caravanning this has to be the best, Ian &Sue are a lovely couple always willing to help.

As everyone has said before - absolutely immaculate site. Owners very welcoming and very knowledgeable about area.

Shop well stocked and plenty of reading material available. Pool not open when we visited - but looked like it would be lovely to sit around on a nice day. Birds galore and bird feeders on every pitch to keep you amused.

Overall it certainly is a lovely little site and the owners work hard to keep it that way.

Any negatives? for us the site was a bit cramped - very little space between outfits, although actual pitches were fine. Worth a visit if you are looking for a lovely site with plenty to do in the area.

We stayed early September and had lovely weather. Its a very neat site with clean facilities. Good showers with plenty of hot water.The couple who run it are very helpful and full of useful info. It is a 'green' site and they encourage re-cycling.
There's a 24-hour shop on site with an honesty box. A heated swimming pool is available for those brave enough! About a 20 min walk away is the village with 2 pubs. The White Lion has the best Indian cuisine we have ever tasted. They have an English menu too! Everard's beer is sold there. Well worth a visit. We didn't visit the other pub as it rarely seemed to be open.
You catch the regular bus service in the village. Ideal place for visiting Rutland Water, Barnsdale Gardens,Oakham and Melton Mowbray. But why visit Melton Mowbray? Would return.

This is a lovely site. Ian and Sue are really friendly and helpful. Yes there are some rules but most of them are just common sense any way - they were not over the top as in previous reviews. The pack that Sue gave us on arrival was an invaluable source of information.

There is a fantastic shop with an honesty box system that works really well. The pork pie pickle was lovely and made in the village and the free range eggs were superb. There is a cool block exchange facility which is really useful for campers with cool boxes but there is also a small fridge that campers can use as well. The showers were spotless but there is only one in each block - but I only queued twice. There is hand cream and body lotion in the ladies.

The village of Whissendine is approx 1/2 mile away down the lane that runs behind the campsite and the village pubs were another 1/2 a mile walk into the village. We did the walk every night and it took us appox 15 minutes. The White Lion pub serves fantastic Indian meals and on a Wednesday there is a special offer set menu which was fantastic value for money. The Three Horsehoes is great for socialising with the locals and we made friends in there from the village. Also the 'Abbot Ale' is superb. They do not do food though.

The site is very quiet but unfortunately the local farmer was busy up and down the lane on his tractor quite early in the mornings and this tended to wake us with a start! I suspect this is because its harvesting time and he was busier than normal. The birds are well catered for here and it was lovely to see such a variety. We even watched some fledge their nesting box.

All in all we would return to this site but maybe not during harvest time!

I camped for the first time ever at Greendale Farm Park, Whissendine and really enjoyed the experience.

The site was fortunately small and quiet with a warm welcome from the lady who runs the place. It had a well-stocked honesty shop which had lots of fliers for things to do in the Rutland area (quite a few).

Shower facilities were clean and very good. I didn't try the pool. Very civilised!

We would certainly come back.

We spent two nights camping at Greendale Farm this week, and we had a very good time. The site is easy to find, clean, very well-manicured and attractive. The flowers were particularly beautiful. The facilities were very clean and well-maintained.

One of the most impressive aspects of this site is the atmosphere. Sue and Ian are very welcoming and approachable; the other campers were lovely and there was a feeling around the site that everyone was on the same wavelength. The site operates on an honesty basis, including the shop where you write down anything you have purchased or borrowed in a designated notepad (in the case of ice packs or books / literature) and you leave any money owed in a little box.

We also really enjoyed the pool, so much so that we unfortunately had to leave a day early because of sunburn! As a result we didn't get to venture out into the surrounding area, but I am confident that if we had, Sue and Ian would have had plenty of suggestions as to where we could go and what we could do.
The shop/library had loads of information about the area in the form of pamphlets and maps, as well as books that you could check out to give you a history of the area (and even one book on the history of the Melton Mowbray pork pie!).

In all, we were very impressed. I can't compare it to any other sites or experiences because this was our first time camping away in a tent, but having gone out in a campervan the year before and seeing other sites down in the Southwest of England, I can say that this is one of the best I've ever been to. I'm very pleased that I stumbled across Greendale Farm on the UK Campsite website!
