There are many things to do in the immediate area and the wider vicinity. Many of these are detailed on our Local Attractions and Days Out pages.
The area around the site and beyond is perfect for walkers and cyclists. The level terrain lends itself perfectly to those who enjoy a good walk without the tiring prospect of hills! Rutland Water is nearby and is surrounded by a network of paths and byways which will occupy the enthusiastic walker for many days. Closer to our site there are a multitude of opportunities for walks alongside the rivers, through historic villages and traversing the local rural landscape. Details of walks are available from the Information Centre on site.
Cyclists will enjoy the ability to maintain a steady speed whilst watching the varied landscapes pass them by. The site is located very close to Peterborough's 'Green Wheel' which is a nationally recognised cycle route used by cycling enthusiasts from across the country. The Green Wheel is a network of routes in and around the city created as part of a Millennium project.
Enthusiastic cyclists from far and wide visit Rutland Water to enjoy the cycle route which circles the reservoir. This makes a great day out for those who enjoy the outdoor life.
After a busy day you may wish to relax with a book. There is, in our Information Centre, an extensive and well organised library of second hand books from which you can choose.
At the end of the day you may wish to avoid cooking for one night and treat yourselves to a meal out or top quality take away in the comfort of your own caravan. The village is fortunate to boast a wide selection of excellent places to eat or from which to collect a meal. Our Information Centre contains an up to date file of menus from local restaurants and there are menus from all of the take away establishments.
