Why stay here ...

The new 5 pitch CL site is situated in an enclosed and peaceful location, within the 5 lake fishery, Rookery Waters. We first opened in 2003 to help diversify our small arable and beef farm. Since then we have complimented the existing environment by planting hundreds of trees, miles of hedging and creating reed bed conservation areas around the fishery and on the 230 acre farm. Our reed bed next to the CL is registered with the British Trust for Ornithology and has had a monthly bird count for the last three years.

The nearest village, Pidley, is 2 miles and it is 8 miles to the historic market town of St Ives.

Each caravan/motorhome pitch has a hard, level gravel standing with large grass area, with ample room for a car and awning. There is a pedestal electric hook-up with light and fresh water supply. The site overlooks the well-established Rook Lake and stunning views of the countryside.

There are miles of bridle and foot paths for walking and cycling. Next to the site is a conservation reed bed wetland area, where many rare birds come for the summer to breed. Well behaved dogs are welcome. Please be respectful of the site and keep your dog under close supervision.

1st Class cl

Rookery Waters
Stayed at this cl twice now and not disappointed. Becky and the team are just great. The cl is down a track but plenty of passing places. Each pitch has plenty of room, fishing peg in front of pitch for a small daily fishing fee. The surroundings are peaceful and quiet and rural. The on site cafe does excellent breakfast, bacon and sausages are gorgeous so much so that I visited the local farm shop, which is well worth a visit and has its own small wildlife park. I actually saw a black squirrel which do exist! Mr P assures me the tackle shop is well stocked and he caught a 201b carp, great fishing. Once the day fishers have left its even quieter. To sit and listen to owls is just heaven. This place is worth a visit. Thanks to Becky and the rest of the team

Excellent CL - everything you need and want

Rookery Waters
Spent our first night here - excellent all the way through. Warm welcome from Becky and the team, with a good briefing about the CL, facilities and the surroundings and a welcome folder that includes a local OS map for walks - a really nice touch. The CL pitches are gated, spacious, quiet with EHU, water and wifi - the wifi is top notch. The onsite cafe is a real bonus for breakfast and lunch. Lakeside Lodge which is 25mins walk away has good evening meals. The booking process is seamless with emails full of good information. A real CL find!

Top Quality CL !

Rookery Waters
Just spent 2 nights at this cracking CL. Easy to find and a very friendly welcome. 5 level pitches all with heaps of space. So quiet and peaceful! Each pitch has its own private swim which is great for anglers plus the tackle shop on site is top class. Great walks direct from the pitches skirting crop fields and open countryside. The welcome back has an OS map in it which we thought was a great touch. We will 100% be back and plan some longer walks. The pitches are effectively serviced so if you are happy with the facilities in your van then you are on to a winner. We will back again soon!

What a find!

Rookery Waters
This relatively new 5CL is a real gem. If you are looking for peace and tranquility within a wildlife oasis amongst the fenland agriculture then this is the one for you. Clair and her team gave us the warmest of welcomes and nothing is too much trouble. The five pitches border a beautiful fishing lake for day fishermen only and despite us being here over the bank holiday weekend when fishing matches were taking place on the other lakes we barely knew they were here. Our pitch overlooked the reedbed area with all its associated wildlife. Basic toilets are available as well as a lovely cafe and superb fishing tackle shop. We are not fishermen but thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful site. If you seek peace and tranquility with friendliness thrown in for good measure then you won't be disappointed here.

Beautiful, scenic, relaxing with nature. Great fishing too!

Rookery Waters
A wonderful secluded area with beautiful views and nature all around. Quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Our own fishing peg by the pitch, caught a lovely selection of fish including carp around 7lbs. We spent most of our time fishing but had intended to cycle on the many foot paths around the area. Fabulous breakfasts in the cafe if you're too lazy to cook. We will definitely return. Thank you James & Clair
