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.

What a find!

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!

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

Peaceful site with in the middle of the fens

We booked Rookery Waters as a stopping off place on the way to Suffolk but it was such a lovely peaceful site with plenty to see locally that we stayed for the week. James and Clare have made a lovely job of laying out the site around one of the fishing lakes. Each pitch is hard standing and includes electric hookup AND a water tap which for my Motorhome with a small tank is a godsend! The guided bus from St Ives gave us a lovely day out in the beautiful city of Cambridge. Duxford, Ely Cathedral and the National Trust at Anglesey Abbey and Wimpole Hall are all nearby. Wildlife on the ponds was also interesting to watch.
