Don't understand the negative reviews!

Fairy's Lodge Farm
Rolled up in our motorhome on a Friday afternoon in early September for 2 nights. 3 grass pitches occupied by caravans, so pulled up on the 4th grass pitch, looked around and thought "this'll do nicely"! What do people expect on a working farm in Cambridgeshire? Herds of Wilderbeest?? It's very flat (no levellers needed) so no hillsides to give views, but trees and hedgerows close by to let you watch the birds, pitches are a decent size so you don't feel you're in a row of terraced houses, certainly plenty of room for an awning, BBQ etc. Shame shower and toilet were out of use - but, we live in interesting, but different, times! Overall we loved it here - we were lucky with the weather, warm and sunny (after a very unspecial summer) and enjoy walking, so the fact that we were out in the sticks wasn't an issue. No real downsides - would have been nice to meet someone from the farm - but I'm sure they had plenty else to do; left our payment in an envelope in the postbox - just a little impersonal! Happy to recommend it to friends.

Disappointed

Fairy's Lodge Farm
I read great reviews . I’ve found the site disappointing. It is a small compact site with no views. Tidy yes, a bit regimented with units backing up to the hedge in line. If this is what you like , it’s lovely. We we’re the 5th unit in so had to park against a brick wall on gravel as there are only 4 grass pitches because the site s small. Therefore the dogs were very restricted for being outside and no room for an awning. You either were on full show to all or faced the wall and with dogs we decided to face the wall with a small space The information room was a small sentinel box with little info and none removal, eg maps or local interests brochures. It did tell you what and what not to do! The toilet and showers were locked and when asked, told they were not In use. I know this maybe Covid times but other sites have had a sanitising regime or info to take away and keep.There was no sanitising liquid etc anywhere. Signs telling you to read and keep to notices were felt somewhat unfriendly although it did say welcome. Perhaps just not my cup of tea and felt very restrictive to be honest.Perhaps when showers are working ok but not good value for money when we visited placed as we were.

A very well maintained and peaceful CL

Fairy's Lodge Farm
This is a really nice CL, 4 grass pitches and up to 2 hard standing, pitches are all level and grass is very well kept. Access is easy, but stick to the main B roads to get to Covington - there are two 'short cuts' that look good on a map, but are single track with few passing options and in poor condition. Access is controlled by an electric gate with key code. We had zero noise from the farm business on site during our stay. there are walks possible direct rom the CL field and locally there are a wealth of good qualtiy foot/bridlepaths. We loved the peace and quiet and the site itself and facilities (can't comment on the shower and toilet, which were closed due to CoVid) were very well kept.

Beautiful Clean Tidy Site

Fairy's Lodge Farm
We stayed here in October 2019 and arrived in the dark we were met cheerfully and shown where to pitch. In the morning we could see the site ! and were happy with our choice. The site is very well maintained, clean and peaceful but no views, there is a clearing in the far hedge to enable you to get to countryside to walk and let the dog do a late night tiddle. Only one other unit there when we were so no queuing for the toilet or shower which were always clean, there were too many do and don't signs for our liking but didn't spoil our stay.Lovely countryside for walking and cycling.

Lovely relaxing CL

Fairy's Lodge Farm
We were looking for a "local CL" for those short, last minute weekend breaks and found this wonderful site on the Club CL's pages. (We were very lucky to get the last pitch due to a cancellation, so would recommend booking in advance) Lovely warm welcome from the host on arrival at a very well maintained site with a shower room and separate W/C. The site has 4 grass pitches and a large gravel pitch (Which suited us perfectly for our Motor Home). Fairy's Lodge Farm is very quiet at weekends as the site is well away from any main roads but please remember this is a working farm should you be staying during the week. Wonderful dog walks over the fields with a great country pub about 1 hour's walk away. We will be returning and highly recommend this site to club members.
