Peaceful but overpriced CL

Fairy's Lodge Farm
This is a small CL with 3 grass pitches and two on gravel surrounded by a large fence, the side of an agricultural shed and high hedges. I chose a grass pitch and parked sideways on to get the best of the sun and so I wasn’t sat out facing other campers. There was a bit of a discussion between the owner and I, who wanted me to to park face in, but she conceded when I explained my rationale. The site is nice and flat and the grass kept short, with access direct from the site onto a footpath by a field. There are no views and with the high hedge, fence and shed wall it felt a bit closed in. I wouldn’t have liked to have been on one of the gravel pitches next to the shed wall so was thankful I got the last grass pitch. I can’t comment on the facilities as I didn’t use them, preferring to use my own. I do think £20 a night is expensive for what it is, and compared to other CL’s and CS’s.

Very pleasant place to stay

Fairy's Lodge Farm
Once again we seem to have hit lucky, this is a lovely CL site. It is relatively small compared to some we have been to, but that does not detract from the site itself. Julia met us shortly after we arrived and advised as to the best pitch to use because we wanted to put up an awning and not all pitches are suitable. Everyone we met from the family were friendly and helpful. As it happened we didn't use the awning. The grassed area was a little too soft and as we were going to be there for three weeks, we didn't want to damage it. The site is very clean and tidy, with drinking water and waste disposal close to hand. There is a toilet and separate shower for use of the campers, this was also clean and warm. It is a working farm and sometimes there was noise coming from the buildings behind the caravan area, but not enough to be a disturbance. There are lots of places to visit close by and some nice walks around the village. There is a very nice pub/restaurant just down the road (White Horse at Tilbrook), which we hope to go back to if we are ever in the area again. All in all a very nice site and we would happily go back there.

Peaceful, rural site in a lovely location

Fairy's Lodge Farm
We stayed here for the weekend. I can’t understand the negative reviews, I guess you just can’t please everybody. Site is quiet and facilities are spotless and well maintained. Good walking directly from the site for our dog walks. Owner friendly and came to introduce herself. Easy access from main routes but far enough away not to have any traffic noise. We were lucky to have good weather so the starry skies were fantastic and I was able to spend a few of the night hours outside taking photos. We will definitely use this site again.

Great little site with lovely walks

Fairy's Lodge Farm
We have stayed here a few times and really like as a base and a relaxing weekend. The site is small, clean and well kept. It has a shower room and a separate toilet , both very clean and functional. The site does not have great views but it’s not really an issue as within 2 minutes you can access the myriad of walks through the fields. You really can walk as far as you want. Not too expensive either.

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.
