Lyndon Top near Oakham Rutland

This is a fabulous site for motorhome, caravan or tent rallies. Officially a rally site but individuals can stay (a sign says no-one is ever turned away.). It is a massive site divided into 12 areas which in total would provide over 500 pitches but when we were there, there were no more than a dozen vans on any area. We stayed with a C&CC temporary holiday site. Cost is £7 per night (the temp hol site charged £8.50). There are two chemical disposal points, one at each end, water taps are all over the place so never far to walk or drive. Rubbish bins are by the office/barn and there are toilet facilities for tenters only (code needed).
The site is next door to a golf club which you can walk through to. Garden centre with café next door, pub with several ales and food about a mile away (there's actually a CL at the pub) and is directly on cycle track which goes right round Rutland Water. Views over the Water are beautiful, particularly from area 9. The grass is almost manicured, the full time warden seems to works 12 hours a day and is really friendly.
Disappointingly there used to be a bus service going passed the end of the lane which did a horseshoe route from Oakham to Uppingham  but this stopped last August due to lack of use, so now if you want to leave your motorhome on site, you have a walk of a mile to the bus stop which can take you to Stamford/Peterborough/Oakham etc.
