Well, just arrived back home from this magnificent gem of a site. We spent five days here with our two dogs, and can only say thank you.
All the wardens are extremely friendly and knowledgeable, they all work tirelessly on the site keeping it spotless.
The laid-back attitude really shone through, the little touches: an honesty shop .... never seen that before and a great trusting idea .... works very well in my humble opinion.
Be prepared though this site offers peace, tranquility, and relaxation that is off the scale.
Pitches are well defined.
Pool on site, although we didn't use it, looked inviting especially on the day we left ....the weather really picked up.
All the usual amenities on site: showers, toilets, washing/ drying.
Nearest pub around 0.85 of a mile down a country lane that is easily within walking distance, serving a great selection of beers and food.
One of the Wow factors here is the variety of birds that visit the site.

Would we visit the site again ....... Absolutely

Just spent 8 nights at this site, cannot fault it. It's a beautifully kept site, showers, toilets are immaculate, attention to detail is second to none. Loved the bird feeders, flowers, plants and the wildlife that they attracted, also liked the eco ethos. The owners are very friendly nothing too much trouble. Lovely walks from the site with detailed instructions provided, also a nice short walk to the village where there is a local shop and pub both made us welcome. Nicely situated for Rutland Waters, Oakham, Stamford and Melton Mowbray. First time for us and the dogs to this site and area, had a great time, will be back.

A well looked after and cared for site. The pitches were really lovely, spacious and well maintained.
A pleasant stroll to the pub, The White Lion, dog friendly. In a good position for Rutland Water.
We loved the peace and quiet and the warm welcome from the wardens who never stopped working to keep this site pristine.
The only observation I would make and this is not a criticism is that the toilets and showers could be extended to make more facilities. Would definitely stay again - we liked it so much.

Room Tip: all of the pitches were spacious

Thank you for your lovely review of our campsite. And well done for catching our wardens doing some work!
Thanks too for your comments on possibly adding an extension to the shower block. We do keep this under consideration, but space and resources make it very difficult, and it is not something we will be doing this year. (We have separate male and female toilets, each with a shower, two wash basins and two toilets/urinals to cater for 12 pitches).
I was joking about the wardens - as you know they are fantastic.

We only stayed here for one night due to its location but what a beautiful and well kept site it is! The wardens/owners work very hard making sure the plants and grassy areas are kept in beautiful condition. I mean really tip top!

When we enquired about booking we were told the pitch available was a bit different due to the sloping bank, I wasn’t quite sure what this meant so Chris immediately sent over a photo of said pitch which was absolutely fine for us, in fact we would request it next time we visit!

Being an adults only site it was calm and serene and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Just returned from Greendale Farm after an excellent week. Have travelled most of this country over the years and have only just found this adult only site, almost on my doorstep, that could easily now be top of my quick break "Go To List."

Just as its name implies, this site possesses a peaceful tranquillity which is complimented by the beautiful surrounding farmland and nature scape. The mid afternoon silence was broken only by the twittering of the birds of many varieties, the gentle bleat of a sheep with her lambs or the occasional sound of a farmer and his tractor passing by or working in the distance.

The site is owned by a very likeable, friendly (but not intrusive) couple Jo and Chris, who do put in extra effort to ensure that you are trouble free and enjoying your time with them. They even supply you with one of their well written and compiled information packs with absolutely everything you need to know to be sure to maximise your stay.

The site has 12 well spaced, quality hard standing pitches with ample well kept grass, flowers and shrubbery between them to ensure you feel comfortable and in a green, rural environment. There is even a small herb garden, just for you to pick your own for your barbecue or lunch. Around the pitches, Jo and Chris have also placed a number of regularly stocked, feeding stations for the many varied birds that enjoy living here. They will keep you amused for hours with their antics; even a family of Greater Spotted Woodpeckers visited our feeder every day.

A small office, honesty shop for a few basics and area information leaflets, pot washing, toilet and shower area are alongside a lovely, small, adult only pool. Don't expect too much here but nonetheless, it is heated, well kept, open air, safe and gorgeous for a little gentle excitement during the nice weather. We had an hour or so swimming a few strokes and sunbathing on a couple of comfy sunbeds at the poolside.

The centre of the local village of Whissendine is an easy 20min stroll away and has shop for newspapers and groceries etc. and there is a really nice pub (The White Lion) with a garden and good food. Their Sunday carvery lunch (booking recommended) is particularly popular and good quality.

I will definitely be back and I would be amazed if anyone could find anything about this lovely site that was not to the Visit England 5 star quality, that they have proudly earned.
