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.

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.

Really nice flat site with amazing views of Rutland Water.

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.
