The caravan site is adjacent to the village of Greetham, through which the Viking Way and various other footpath networks pleasantly meander. The village offers three traditional pubs serving hearty food, as well as fun activities which include tennis and badminton courts, a bowling green, pentanque, football, cricket and a children's play area.
Golfing enthusiasts staying at the Rutland Caravan and Camping Site are spoilt for choice with one of Rutland's finest clubs nearby. Greetham Valley boasts two 18-hole courses, a 9-hole 3 par course, driving range, club house and excellent Pro Shop. Rutland certainly lives up to its motto 'Multim in Parvo', which means 'Much in Little'. Rutland Water, within easy reach of the caravan park, offers sailing, cycling, fishing, rock climbing, butterfly & aquatic centre as well as a fine nature reserve."|

Site flat with hard standing (small pebbles) and grass pitches.
We were parked close to the 2 acre dog walking section and the hedges and small trees protect the area from high winds.
Plenty of money being spent on the site with ongoing building work – log cabins being erected and indoor swimming pool should be ready for next year.
All MH facilities are working and the site was clean and well looked after.
Enough walks to keep anyone happy – loads of public footpaths all around the village and the Viking Way going for miles and miles.
Village Church clock chimes the hour – every hour day and night!
We had a meal at the Pub nearest to the camp and it was a very acceptable meal – The Plough Inn - with many reviews on Tripadvisor.
One other Pub and an Indian restaurant also serve meals.
Shop/Post Office on main road through the village.
Rutland Water is about 5 miles from the site and is well worth a visit – parking charges at all the car parks in the area around Rutland Water but no height barriers to worry about.
Reception open 9-5 (Sunday am only) in October – may be open longer in High season.
Calor Gas bottles on site, Fish and Chip wagon after 6pm Friday and Saturday nights, bread and papers can be ordered and free range eggs (14 out of the 18 eggs we bought were double yolks) are available.
Campsite is around 2.5 miles from the A1 at Stretton and easy to find – large roadside signs for the Camp, indicating the route to take, are difficult to miss.
Good well kept site with no obvious problems.

A pleasant site with plenty of space. Full facilities including a dog walk and even a dog shower! Pitches were a bit open so privacy may be difficult if the site were full. More shrubs between pitches could help. Separate areas for groups, family and adults. Very helpful staff and plenty to recommend a visit.
As well as the dog walk into the village there is a free minibus service.
Lots of on-going plans to enhance the site including a nature walk and swimming pool under construction

Don't follow your satnav, it won't get you there! Strongly suggest you follow the directions on the contact page of their website - they work, even if you do wonder at first (Google doesn't even appear to know about the road you go down :-) Do not try to get to the site via the village of Greetham.
The GPS co-ordinates given on this entry appear to be wrong - I think they will send you to a residential close with no easy way from there to the campsite.
We went on a damp foggy weekend in February when there were very few vans about and it didn't really show the site off at its best. Mix of hardstanding and grass pitches. I can say however that the site was well kept and all facilities were clean, functional and kept stocked as necessary.
There is a walk from the far corner of the site which connects with church lane and thereby into the main street of Greetham. Village shop is well stocked and not unreasonably priced for a village shop. 3 pubs in village at least 2 of which do food. In the other direction there is a garden centre which I think also has cafe. Bus stops in village.
