 Stayed here this past weekend, 1-3 July.

The campsite is lovely & quiet, we got given a hard standing near the apple trees.

The grass is well kept in both the upper & the rally field at the bottom.

The single Shower is next to the house and is ok - Hot enough and water pressure is good. Can get VERY busy when there are lots of DOE about. The toilets are attached to the pot washing facilities next to what I think was an old cow shed. And after a dozen or so DOE girls had been in, the floor was wet & muddy. With the Children congregating around the sink, it felt a bit awkward walking through them to go to the loo.

It would be so much better if the showers & toilets were together in the same block but separate from the pot washing but it was cheap enough for 2 nights @ £34 incl electric & 2 small dogs.

I would go for something a little more expensive next time I think

 Stayed on site for a week as we needed a break after my wife had been working full time on the election. Hadn't stayed in this area before. The site turning is a bit tight but it shouldn't be a problem for confident drivers. Spent a lot of time on site just chilling out and walking the dog. The birds and the horses in the field behind when you here them you kmow you are in the country side. Facilities were a bit basic but acceptable two toilets and 1 shower £1 (for charity) + washing up area all kept nice and clean. The site does slope but not too much. The grass was in good condition and not too long. From the pitches to the shower which is located on the side of the house and is a bit of a walk up hill (probably 75 yards from field)the toilets 1/3 this distance. Make sure to take a torch with you for night time use. The area not far from Leicester/Melton Mowbrey and don't forget Rutland water. Also worth a visit is Foxton Locks a staircase of locks for narrow boats.

All in all we had a good week and will go again.

Site could do with another shower but if you are a committed camper you will get bye.

 The site is in a field adjacent to the old rectory, however entering the drive we found the entrance very tight requiring us to reverse into the road opposite.

We were showed to the hard standing pitch which was level, but the grass where we erected the awning was on a steepish slope, so much so that we had difficulty erecting it.

We found the site to be very quiet and enjoyed the bird song, we also completed 2 local walks and a walk around Rutland water (17 miles), which is a short drive away.

In the village there is the local pub The Sun, I recommend this is a voided as it's very tired, the Horse and Jockey in Manton is well worth a visit as it has a good range of real ales and food.

On the down side, the single shower is quite a walk and isn't worth a pound each, we found it to be dirty. The toilets are basic and these too could do with a clean. We ended up using our on board shower.

All in all, the site is secluded and quiet, but because there is so much choice in the area we wouldn't come back.

 Had a lovely weekend at this site, as there were 40+ Duke of Edinburgh participants in the bottom field we were offered a caravan pitch in the orchard which had plenty of space to try our recently aquired Corado4 + canopy. There is a slight slope but nothing for concern.

The toilets were clean and well stocked and the shower was clean to, costing £1 in honesty box. They would be a bit of a trek if you are in the bottom field.

There can be some road noise from the A47 half mile away dependant on wind direction, there was an incredible dawn chorus complemented by two horses galloping up and down the next field.

Belton in Rutland is a very pretty village with lots of history. It is also situated on the Leicestershire Round long distance walk. The village pub is very a friendly proper local, real fire, real ale and a garden out the back. Oakham is a short drive away for a beautiful market town with lots of independent businesses.

Overall a rural campsite with friendly staff which I would definitely use again.

 The site is reached via the rectory driveway and the turn into it is a tight squeeze for larger vehicles. Sat nav took us right to the address, but we struggled to see the small sign as it was covered by ivy. It would be helpful to have a more prominent/visible sign.

From reception we were greeted and shown to our pitch. We had a grass pitch as the hard standings were all taken. Bit of a slope-i would advise you to have levellers. Plenty of space between units and ehu within easy reach. Site itself was very peaceful with plenty of birdsong, though you could still hear distant road noise. At night it was nice and dark, good for stargazing.

We couldn't get TV reception, didn't really mind that, but we were a little disappointed to find we couldn't even get a radio signal.

We tried the local pub, a short walk into Belton but can't comment on their meals, as the night we were there they weren't serving food.

The toilets are at the top of the site, a bit of an uphill trudge. Sadly, we felt the toilets let this site down badly being dated, cold and, when I visited, dirty. There was no light once the door was shut, the sinks were so small there was hardly room to wash your hands and I couldn't coax more than a trickle of hot water from the tap. There wasn't even a mirror. It put me off so much, I didn't even bother with the shower, preferring to use our own in the van.

It cost us £20 for the night which felt overpriced considering the facilities.

Overall, if you want 'out of the way' and are happy with basic facilities or have you own, this sight is fine, but if, like us, you prefer a little more comfort and good value, I would go elsewhere.

 Just got back from a lovely weekend spent at this beautiful little site. Very quiet & secluded, a perfect weekend get away.

The loos were spotless & as already mentioned plenty of loo roll & a clean hand towel in place. We didn't use the shower so can't comment on that. A lovely little site if you want a peaceful weekend of doing very little.

 My opinion of this campsite is that it is indeed a little gem! Its quiet & secluded, just as you'd expect by its Countryside location. The campsite is within the Rectory grounds & consists of a field for tents along with another area dedicated to caravans/campervans offering 5 hardstandings which are situated within an apple orchard & the grass is well maintained plus all the plots have an EHU plus water. The facilities are a short walk from the field.

Point to note. Take a torch as its pitch black at night. No light pollution. There are however security lights which guide you as you approach the buildings. There is a shower but I cannot comment as I had no call to use it, but the toilets & washing up area was kept very clean.

I spent a lovely weekend here with my two Dogs. So if you want peace & quiet along with plenty of Countryside to explore on foot, cycle or car then this is the place to go. Idyllic!

There is a pub in the village, only minutes away but no shop within walking distance.

I'd also like to thank Richard & his wife for the apples. Delicious.

I highly recommend this campsite.

 A little gem of a site tucked away in a quiet but pretty village a few miles from Rutland water. Beautifully kept grass and hard standings with electric and water. A very wet weekend but the sheltered situation of the site kept us protected from the elements. Basic loos but clean and well maintained with a fresh hand towel each day and no shortage of loo roll. The shower is near the house with an honesty box for £1which goes to charity! Friendly and attentive owners who also take B and B at the house.

Plan was to cycle round Rutland water but it was a little too far from the site to cycle for us and we didn't pack the cycle rack so had to take the car and walk! Lots of things to see and do in a 10 mile radius even on a wet bank holiday. We will definitely stay again and take the bike rack next time! P. S. Didn't try the village pub, looked a bit scruffy from outside for such a pretty village.

 This is a gorgeous little site. The owners, who are very friendly, take great pride in the cleanliness of the facilities and the presentation of the field where the pitches are located. The pitches are well laid out, mainly hardstanding with plenty of space between each one. There are two very clean toilets each with its own sink. Outside there is a pot washing area, drinking water point, waste disposal and the cdp. The shower is located next to the house and also has a toilet available in the same room. The shower is an extra £1 per use with an honesty box located just outside. There was no wifi when we were there.

Approaching the site up the hill the entrance is the second one which is very easily missed as the cs sign is covered by the foilage. There is an ideal place to turn around at the top of the hill as we found out, and to be honest it may be the better way to get onto the driveway as it may be a little tight when turning in from downhill.

The village is lovely and peaceful with a pub which is very popular. No shop in the village but youíre not too far from oakham, which is well worth a visit. While there the grainstore brewery/pub which is located next to the railway station is certainly a place to go if you like your real ales and is also dog friendly. It also sells what looked like lovely food at very reasonable prices. We didnít eat this visit but most certainly will do on our return trip.

There are many nice walks directly from the site, with rutland water being just a short drive away. There is plenty to do, lots of nice places to visit with not too much of a drive. Would recommend this site whether you fancy just chilling out, walking, cycling or day trips.
