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 Hors 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.

This review is for The Paddock

Really nice flat site with amazing views of Rutland Water. My wife and I decided to explore Rutland and found this site on the club website. Fantastic view of the lake, warm welcome from Brian the warden. Cycled the 25 miles around the lake which is always what we wanted to do, explored Stamford, very nice town and shops. Will definitely return to stay again. Nice pub not far away for a meal and a pint.

We have stayed on this superb site now on more occasions than we can remember.

This review is for The Paddock

We have stayed on this superb site now on more occasions than we can remember. It is a jewel in the Crown of Club CS sites Brian is always friendly and accommodating. The site is exceptionally spacious and immaculately maintained. The lack of facilities other than waste water and electricity is a bonus for this site. The views are some of the best in Rutland and the pitches are set out in such a way that no one's view is obstructed.

This review is for The Paddock

Highly recommended, this lovely quiet site overlooks Rutland Water. Brian is the most friendly warden, giving us a warm welcome with a copy of Rutland Visitor Guide. The site is spacious, well kept and clean, with water & electric points. Ideal for walking, cycling, near nature reserves and sailing club.
