The Local Area

Greendale Caravan and Camping Park is just half a mile outside of Whissendine, a village of about 1000 inhabitants, where you will find two churches, a windmill, a school, two pubs, a mace shop and several listed buildings. There is also a farm shop less than one mile away in the opposite direction to the village.

Oakham, the County town of Rutland is just four and a half miles away. This attractive small market town is rich in history and character with some good quality small shops and lots of pubs and restaurants.

Six miles from the campsite in the opposite direction is the larger market town of Melton Mowbray

The county of Rutland

Rutland, often referred to as the Secret England, is a beautiful and interesting county with lots of places to visit for all tastes. Our tourist information section gives many ideas. Nearby Rutland Water provides a wonderful opportunity for water sports, cycling, walking, climbing and fishing and has a nature reserve beside it. Barnsdale Gardens [Geoff Hamilton] is just a few minutes drive away. Nearby Oakham, the county town is “rich in history and character” with some good quality small shops and lots of pubs and restaurants. If you know Lands End clothes you will want to check bargains  [25 – 60% off] at their retail outlet. Melton Mowbray, also a market town, in the other direction is very different in character and is famous for Stilton cheese, pork pies and its weekly market. The towns of Uppingham and Stamford are a must to visit whilst the larger cities of Nottingham, Leicester and Peterborough are all within a ¾ hour drive.
