Very surprised, visited because it was listed in cccmag as a temporary holiday site at 8. 50 per night. When we arrived 1st field was crowded but the very friendly man who ran the site appeared from behind the barn and showed us into the next field where we were able to select our own pitch next to water supply and with a view over Rutland water. He then proceeded to give us full details of the area, including nearby pubs and shops etc. The next day he came and took our details and charged the princely sum of 7. 00. No facilities apart from water and chemical toilet disposal. Excellent value

We only live locally but decided to come to Lyndon Top as our maiden voyage of our first caravan.

And what a stunning site it is.

We arrived to be greeted by the grounds man, very friendly guy who said we can pretty much choose where we wanted to pitch. He showed us the best field on the site which over looked Rutland Water and a field full of sheep! It was lovely.

The site has drinking water and some toilets which are located in the barn at the site entrance.

There isn't electric hook up but that wasn't a concern for us.

It is a really peaceful site but on arrival we were told that there was aVW rally in the top field which he said were playing music etc. We didn't hear anything at all.

Added bonus of a chippy van and ice cream van on a Saturday night (we had already eaten though. A little disappointed! Haha)

The site is at Rutland water so it is ideal for those who want to walk or cycle round the reservoir.

Highly recommend and we shall be returning often!

Definitely worth visiting if you are a proper camper. No EHU. No showers. No wash up areas.

Just a good old campsite with freshwater points, one portakabin toilet in a covered barn and many many acres of lush, flat grass to take your view of Rutland water. Turn up and leave when you like. 6 for the night, loads of space. Warden on site. Pub 1 mile, Cycle route 50m. If you are a well prepared camper, this site is ideal. 1st field is often reserved for CC rallies.

Just come back from a short break to lyndon top farm. We arrived early afternoon, and was met by the warden, who was friendly, polite and very helpful, giving us leaflets with info on the surrounding area.

The site has plenty of space, with some stunning views of rutland water. The ground is very even and the grass is well kept!

There is plenty of things to do and see near by, the nature reserve is just a short walk down the road, and normanton museum is about 3 miles away!

There is a tesco's in oakham which is only afew miles away! there are pubs a short walk away!

Right, there are a few downsides to the site and they are as follows, there are no shower facilities, or lighting in the toilets. But a lantern is more than enough light for a trip to the loo, this is due to it being a non electric site, but I felt that it added to the fun of the break.

All in all I would say that lyndon top farm is value for money. And we are already planning our next break there at the end of the month

Just returned from a quick getaway for the bank holiday weekend. Really liked the idea that we could turn up and leave whenever and the price was very reasonable also.

we were met by George who advised me the best place to set up camp. We chose to overlook Rutland water. The ground was flat and easy to pitch a tent.

There was a water tap nearby which was useful. The toilets was 5 mins walk and you needed a code to gain access. No lights and only cold water but always had loo roll. No showers but this is clearly stated on the website.

The biggest downside, there is no facilities to wash up. If there was a sink, you could boil your own water and rinse them off would have been beneficial.

Lots was walking and pubs in the area.

Overall a nice site and would return. However if you're staying in a tent then a couple of days would be most I would recommend, due to the lack of showers and washing up.

Went on the weekend(rally) to test the van out after a long lay-up. As the comments say below lots of space, the large site is divided by hedges, which is on a gentle gradient and elevated; The majority have majestic views over Rutland Water. Couldn't comment on the drainage but the ground seemed solid enough. A simple site without any frills- suited us just fine (me the wife and two 'elderly' teenagers + dog). We walked, cycled and relaxed ! Be warned though, at peak times (sunny bank holiday weekends) make the route around the reservoir busy, but their are sufficient eating and drinking facilities on or just off the trail to make it worth while.

You'll need to be self sufficient and as I don't have a generator to top up my electrics, a week, very unfortunately, would be my limit. Weather was very good to us and so were the members. Thought it was a little pricey for a basic site but that's the price for location, location, location. Going back again soon.
