Rutland Camping and Caravan site sits in the heart of Rutland with the Viking Way long distance footpath close by. The Jubilee Community Centre, venue for our social evening and AGM, is less than half a mile away. Oakham with a range of smaller shops is just 6 miles away and Melton Mowbray is 15 miles. Rutland Caravan and Camping is a Caravan Club Affiliated Site. We have the use of their Rally Field which is a large level field. All the electric pitches are sold out - only grass pitches left. You may also opt to make your own arrangements at local Pubs and B&Bs. All the options are in the drop down list marked Accommodation. There is a small shop stocking essentials such as bread, milk and fresh eggs.
