Select Section

Overview

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 7 March to 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 watching as Osprey can often be seen in spring/summer, and a short walk to the Nature Reserve with its wealth of information in the visitor centre. The two acre site is all grass and level. There are no toilets or showers on site but chemical toilet disposal point, mains water and electric hookup are all available. Members also have access to a further three acres or pasture for dog exercising or other forms of recreation. A viewing platform is also available to enhance views over the reservoir. There are public footpaths nearby. The Horse and Jockey pub in Manton village, about a mile away offers excellent ales and good quality pub food at reasonable prices. Nearby attractions include fishing, sailing, rock climbing, cycle hire walking and birdwatching.

Spacious, well kept and quiet site A return visit to this wonderful site overlooking Rutland Water. All grass site with pitches divided by unmown grass. Brian keeps a close eye on comings and goings from his caravan and has erected a viewing platform overlooking the reservoir. Good access to cycle path around the reservoir and Lyndon Nature Reserve. Wildlife also enjoy the site and we were able to see Barn Owl, Little Owl and hare from the van. We look forward to returning.

A lovely welcome at a lovely site.

This review is for The Paddock

A lovely welcome at a lovely site. Beautiful views of Rutland Water with a short walk to Lyndon visitors centre and Nature reserve. A thoroughly enjoyable time and a pleasant stay. Rutland Water has an excellent cycling track around it. The Osprey project is based there and the nest can be viewed by cctv at Lyndon visitors centre. Other attractions include Belvoir Castle, Stamford and Burleigh House are only a short drive away.
