This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.
Whilst the majority of Certificated Sites do permit children, please be aware that this site has chosen to be Adults Only.
Open 1st March – 30 September
Certificated Site of the Year 2012. The site is located off the Manton to Edith Weston road on the south shore of Rutland Water. Situated adjacent to the popular cycle route around the reservoir (17 miles, or 23 if you take in the peninsular) the site also offers panoramic views across the water. An ideal place for bird watchers as Osprey can often be seen in the spring/summer, and a short walk to the Nature Reserve with its wealth of information in the visitor centre. The two acre level site has electricity, but no toilets or shower facilities. Members also have access to a further 3 acres of pasture land for dog exercising or other forms of recreation. There are also public footpaths nearby. The Horse and Jockey public house in nearby Manton village, offers an excellent pint and good quality pub grub. Nearby attractions also include fishing, sailing, rock climbing, cycle hire, waking and bird watching. A round the water bus route, introduced in 2012, passes within 200 yards of the site with a stop at that point, (pensioner’s passes accepted). This gives access to Oakham and Uppingham with further public transport connections.

Welcomed warmly as soon as we arrived. Couldn't believe how much room there was; there is a 3 acre field and only a few pitches. Wonderful view over Rutland water which you can walk round from the site. Very dog friendly. Such a peaceful place, no toilet block but everything else more than makes up for it.

This site will go the top of my league table! Very well organised, (the text detailing pitch number received a couple of days prior to arrival was very helpful). The site is exceptionally clean and tidy. The pitches are large and well defined. The manager, Brian, was welcoming and professional in all aspects. Will recommend and return.
