- Luxury glamping site on seven acres of private land and vineyard
- Half a mile's stroll from Uppingham; 10 mins' drive to Rutland Water
- Individually designed and fully equipped canopy tents; firepit outside
If you’re surmising that stays at Vineyard and Canvas revolve around settling into a swish tent overlooking fields full of grapes, well, you’d be absolutely right.
This luxurious glampsite, opened in 2019 and covering seven acres of private land, is set on the hills of high Rutland and has fab views. Each canopy bell tent sits in its own private space of 24 square metres, with hidden picnic areas and secluded hideaways all around.
Each accommodation is individually designed and comes with contemporary furnishings, a handmade kingsize oak bed, kitchen equipment and safety items including smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Step outside and you’ll spot a firepit, verandah, tables, chairs and a parasol too.
Travelling light? The site team can sort bedding and towels for glamping guests or you're welcome to bring all your own kit along (including a tent if you desire something a little more low-key).
And for off-base eats and explores? The historic town of Uppingham (half a mile away) has a food shop and takeaways, along with art shops, fashion boutiques, bistros and a Friday market. Wine bars, pubs and award-winning restaurants are within easy driving distance around Rutland.
Dogs are very welcome at the park but must be kept on a lead at all times due to the numerous rabbits and other wild animals on the grounds. The park asks that you please respect the land and its occupants.
