Amazing spot! Only live 5 miles down the road and have discovered a hidden gem, beautiful surroundings and you could think you were somewhere abroad, super easy to book and very friendly, we were very very happy with our pitch and had an amazing weekend. Thank you!

You can't go wrong here folks, no ehu, showers, hot water etc but if you have your own facilities you don't need the extras. £7 a night, large pitches, plenty of space, excellent walks or cycling, Rutland water has a host of things to do. Recommended, why pay ridiculous club site fees when these places exist? 10/10!

I came to Lyndon Top with a group of friends who additionally were camping with tents. It had been chosen and booked as a budget option (£7 per unit per night).

The campsite was easy to find, had ample space for pitching and the staff friendly and helpful; they even allowed us to borrow a table and set of chairs from another field.

The running water was clean and drinkable and there were taps located at intervals that didn't mean you had to walk a very long distance to fill up.

However, beware that there is no hot water or electricity on site. We knew this beforehand but were surprised to find that the toilet trailer had no lighting nor hot running water with which to wash. It was by no means a deal breaker as we were only there for two nights and made use of facilities at nearby pubs. Unfortunately the toilets were additionally not very clean and there was not even any space to put a toothbrush next to the sink (not that any of us wanted to).

The local area is very good though, and I would particularly recommend the Wetherspoons in Oakham if you find yourself in need of a cheap, tasty breakfast.

In all, I'd still rate the site fairly highly but the toilets and lack of hot water to was with did let it down. If you're planning on a length stay, bring a solar shower or caravan!

We have been here many times. Superb location for peace and quiet and beautiful views.

Easy access to cycle route around Rutland Water.

Staff friendly and helpful.

Pitches flat in places, levelling blocks required in others.

£7 a night - value for money.

This is the fourth time in five months that I have returned here. The fields are massive and so very well kept. You just drive on in and park wherever you wish. There's so much choice as to where to park up. NO EHU and a very basic but clean toilet block with no hot water (not an issue at all for me but maybe would be for some?) Plenty of drinking water points.

The main reasons I return is for the relaxed atmosphere, amazing views (if you manage to get the right pitch) and above all, the warm, friendly and genuinely helpful wardens. Nothing seems to be a problem for them. Its like going back to see an old friend - they always remember my face (or maybe it's my butterfly stickered van?lol ).

A very short walk down to the bottom of the hill takes you to the Wildlife Trusts Osprey centre and bird hides and of course the Rutland water trail that runs all the way round this Water and is used by pedestrians and cyclists alike.

All this for a totally bargain price - I don't think I've ever camped on another site for less. If you like relaxed and 'free' camping with bare minimum of rules then this ones for you!

This site is absolutely perfect for a motorhome. The only facilities are fresh water & elsan waste but what more do you need. At £7 a night it offers exceptional value for money. The views of Rutland Water are spectacular & only improved when an osprey flies over. There is access to the cycle/walking path which is where the Osprey Centre is located. Some chicks were hatching when we were there in May. It was lovely to watch on the webcam. Oakham is worth a visit. It has a carpark for buses that can be used by motorhomes. Maybe worth double checking in case things have changed. The nursery on the main road is a great place to buy plants & has a café too. Edith Weston is not far away if you need extra supplies. It has a pub which does food but it was closed for a major refurb by the look of it at the time of this stay.

The Warden Arthur & his wife are always so helpful. They keep the site looking sharp.

This is our second visit this year, plus we came here twice last year as well. We just wish that we lived a little closer so that we could visit more often and that we had discovered it sooner.
