Reviewer: Scilly Boy 21 reviews from this member

 First time at this site and we chose it particularly for the proximity to Rutland Water.

Pitch is allocated prior to arrival and is on a wonderfully open grassed area. Pitch sizes are generous and there are water and waste points dotted about.

No facilities here but we are used to using our own so they were not missed.

Owner Brian and son Jason visit the site every day and are very approachable.

The cycle track around the water begins at the site entrance, and we would advise turning left and going around in an anti-clockwise direction. This is because although you will encounter some ups whichever way you go, there is a steep drop from the site down to the water edge.

We would recommend a visit to Barnsdale Garden Centre Cafe where there is a great breakfast to be had. There is a garden centre near the site which also offers breakfast but we didn't visit.

There are views of the water from the site, and there is a viewing area, although these views are being impinged by the neighbours letting their boundary hedges grow taller.

We had a great stay here and would stay again.

Would definitely stay here again.

Reviewer: Friends of Lulu 5 reviews from this member

 This was the perfect spot for meeting friends who live the other side of the country from us.

It's impeccably-kept, and with excellent recycling / waste facilities which are emptied daily, and pitches are mowed once vacated.

The attention given to the facilities means Brian or his son Jason are on the site each day to address any issues (if anyone has any!) or provide guidance about the local area.

There are a few excellent pubs nearby, and a 10% discount at the Fox which is owned by Jason.

We could see the water from our pitches, and, although we were closest to the main road, it didn't trouble us.

 Large site, open pitches with plenty of space between them.

View over Rutland Water, which is about 1/2 mile away (in a direct line) complete with Nature Reserve.

Good local roads. Generally peaceful. *

As a CS, no toilet block but the facilities are well cared for and the site visited daily by the owner or his son.

They can be contacted by mobile phone if there is a problem.

Collected cash on arrival day (definitely cash preferred).

NB My lower score for the facilities is to reflect the absence of a facilities block only ( we weren't expecting any!) - what there is is good.

Reviewer: Bunglebear72 1 review from this member

 Great views but not for long as Hops/vineyard being grown in field at bottom of site.

Very limited facilities for price, no toilets, road traffic noise very disturbing considering meant to be peaceful and quiet, also someone using bandsaw or similar tool nearby.

Poorly signposted from road, please ignore Lydon Top sign as The Paddock is also down same road.

Exclusive certificated site for 5 caravans/motorhomes and 10 tents, NOT, 9 UNITS ON SITE 2 NIGHTS, 6 UPON ARRIVAL.

Reviewer: Mrs Mcculloch 1 review from this member

 Lovely tidy site.

Clean and useful facilities.

Very welcoming site owner and his warden.

So close to Rutland Water and the bird sanctuary. Brians viewing platform is a wonderful addition.

Would highly recommend.

Thank you to Brian.

Reviewer: Andy McKay 15 reviews from this member

 My wife and I went here for a long weekend wanting somewhere peaceful but within easy reach of good walking and cycling routes. We were not disappointed, Brianís response to my enquiry was friendly, quick and efficient, even texting me our pitch number before arrival.

The grass pitch was pretty flat and gave great views across Rutland Water, the circular route around the lake went past the entrance to the site.

This site wonít suit everybody as you need to use all of your own facilities but this does not worry us, just means sites like these donít get so crowded.

Particularly liked the wooden viewing platform overlooking Rutland Water and the local pub (The Horse & Jockey) where we had an excellent reasonably priced evening meal.

 We were lucky to find vacancy for two nights mid-week just before the bank holiday weekend which was fully booked.

The site is in a blissful setting, very well maintained with large pitches, as mentioned in previous reviews. Brian is charming and helpful and informed us about the osprey nest which could be viewed from the webcam in the nature reserve just down the lane from the site.

We were blessed with good weather which helped but even without that the site is the perfect CL We are looking forward to our next visit.

Reviewer: Vangelina 21 reviews from this member

 I knew this site was going to be great after reading previous reviews and speaking to Brian. Very well kept Site with very spacious pitches and lovely views of Rutland Water. What a helpful and approachable person Brian is. Site is basic but had everything we needed. Adults only but dog friendly endeared us to booking. Can see why the site has won awards. We will definitely return.

Reviewer: MadAboutMotorhoming 18 reviews from this member

 Wow what a fabulous CS in a stunning location overlooking Rutland Water. Brian Is very welcoming and very happy to give guidance about any number of different things in the surrounding area. We woke up to a stunning sunrise which was backdrop to a hot air balloon taking off in the next field. And of course the varied birdsong was delightful. The area is a haven for bird watchers, cyclists and walkers.

The open aspect of the campsite is peaceful with very generous pitch sizes marked out by slightly longer grass. The pitches themselves are immaculately well mown, each pitch with electric has water and drainage. There is some vey distant road noise during the day which is not intrusive. The electric option is a bit pricey at £5 per night but we were happy to pay this extra for such a wonderful CS. Overall a relaxing site in a spectacular location.
