We were looking for a chilled out trip away, we were over the moon with our choice of location. We were met by Ian and shown to our pitch, Sue later visited us and passed on her wealth of local knowledge. The site was immaculate, beautifully landscaped and wonderfully quiet. The small on site shop with an honesty box was a lovely reminder of the days gone by when trust and respect were a normal part of life. The closeness to Melton Mobray and Oakham make this site a wonderful base camp to explore the area. The two pubs in Whissendine are both dog friendly and there is a well stocked village shop where you can order your newspapers. We wanted a chilled out break and we got it. Will definitely return.

Everything that has been said about this site is true with bells on! I woke up at 9:40 am on Saturday morning as there was not a sound from fellow campers only birds & sheep!The facilities are immaculate with some lovely homely touches such as sun block, creams etc in the ladies. The shop though small has everything in it & it's run on an honesty box system. Free range eggs available as well as a fridge just for tent campers. Sue is so friendly, kind & helpful which I think is the reason why all the campers whether tent, caravan, trailer tent or camper van are friendly to each other. Putting up our tent on Friday in the sun was a hot experience but the motorhome couple next to us came across with 2 cold beers as soon as it was up! The pub in Whissendine does lovely food & real ale just up the road. If you want a lovely area to visit, total peace, a friendly atmosphere & amazing wardens & owners all packed in an immaculate small site then this is the place for you.

We've just come back from a long weekend at this site. It is very clean and beautifully manicured with a peaceful rural feel. We didn't meet the owners as they were away but were greeted upon arrival by a lady who stood making sure we pitched the caravan correctly despite the torrential rain.

A word of caution to dog owners - this site is dog tolerant, not dog friendly. We were repeatedly advised to ensure we picked up our dogs mess (which we've always done, for all the dogs we've owned) and told the dog was not allowed to urinate on the grass at the site. When I enquired about the location of the dog waste bin I was told it was half a mile away at the village and also told to ensure I picked up the dog mess if in the village as villagers had been complaining about visitors from the camp site not cleaning up after their dogs! Fellow campers with dogs advised they had been told the same.

There are recycling bins on the site for paper, cardboard, food (not cooked) glass, cans, plastics and general land fill waste.

There is an honesty shop on the site selling numerous local goods such as flour, jams and fresh eggs. The ladies and gents have 1 shower each which we never had a problem using and are very clean, as are the toilets.

We were told to use pipes from our caravan to empty our waste dish water into the hedge as there is nowhere to empty your grey water. For chemical waste there is one open drain with a lid next to the entrance gate that you have to swill out with water from a watering can.

There are 'do not' signs everywhere; do not use talc, do not take shoes into the shower, do not flush anything other than what you've produced down the loo with the exception of loo roll. Clean your hair from the drain etc. We were instructed to ensure the car was moving when the steering wheel was turned on the grass.

We visited the local pub in Whissendine (the White Lion) and as other reviewers have noted, the food and company was lovely, the White Lion also allow dogs in the bar where you can order food and sample local ales. Rutland water is a short drive from the site and is a lovely place to visit.

Due to feeling that dogs aren't particularly welcomed, they're tolerated - we won't be staying here again.

Just had three wonderful days at this gem of a site. Well looked after and cared for, with great attention to detail. Facilities are very clean, and the views across the fields are excellent. The site has won several conservation awards and the owner puts a lot of time and effort into encouraging wild flowers to grow, and birds to visit, the multitude of feeders and boxes around the site.

Plenty to do in the area, and the village pub was well recommended, although we struggled to find time to visit it.

Fantastic site, my daughter and I were made very welcome. Facilities are to a very high standard, honesty box for purchases from the shop, beautiful washing areas. Each pitch has electric hook-up, although we were not set up for its use. A very quiet site, it was very cold so everyone was snug inside their caravans, but the layout is excellent for sitting outside and passing time. We walked into Whissendine late afternoon and spent a very pleasant couple of hours in The White Lion.

We were only there the one night as we were trying 'Gertie' out for the first time, but it would have been nice to have spent longer. Views are great, countryside all round.

We have just returned from three nights here and would say that it is the best kept site that we have ever stayed at. The owner Sue clearly takes a pride in the place and is also very helpful.

It is a small adult only park and a member of the 'tranquil parks' group, this meant that it was very quiet. We found the other campers very friendly.

We enjoyed our bank holiday weekend exploring Rutland and would certainly return here again.
