About the neighbourhood
Rutland is a beautiful and often overlooked county due to it’s size. It is the smallest county in England but with such a lot to offer it’s visitors. Known as Multum in Parvo (much in Little) it certainly lives up to it’s name. From walks, cycling, running, horse riding, to open water swimming, fishing and sailing, there is something for everyone. Oakham, a pretty little market town steeped in history. Only a short 10 minute drive from the campsite. It has lots of lovely little independent shops and plenty of cafes and tea rooms, Stamford is an equally interesting old market town. With its many cobbled streets and alleyways, it is a very attractive town to explore. With architecture ranging from Medieval to Georgian times
