Ok for a stop over.

Beckbrook Farm

This CL is a challenge to find if approaching from the north or west due to the new highly complex road traffic junction between the A14 and start of the M11. The approach from Maddingley Village Is simpler. On arrival there is no C&MC sign at the entrance and the pitch area is a rather uneven grass area interspaced with low fruit trees. There being no electricity the charge of £16 for small caravan and dog seems a little expensive for what it's just a patch of grass. The site being so close to the M11 / A 14 suffers from quite a high level of road noise most of the time. Okay for a few hours stop over to visit Cambridge which is what we used it for.

july 18 visit

Beckbrook Farm
stayed 2 nights in july - finding site was a challenge as major road works meant route descibed in book /app not available - struggled to find alternate but got there eventually.- alternate approach from a1303 near to american cemetery rather than a14 as app and book directions Site very peaceful and pleasant walk for dog around woodland on site - easy access to nearby American cemetery (well worth a visit) and to local park and ride site ground suffered from very long dry spell but we managed to get on and off ok

OK but a bit pricey

Beckbrook Farm
Mrs Timms was very pleasant and welcoming, but the price on here says £10 a night and we were charged £15, which I thought somewhat expensive as there are no facilities at all. We have stayed on cheaper CLs which have had toilets, electric, chemical disposal etc and so I felt slightly disappointed. Having said that it was quiet, pretty and convenient. Also, given that the access described in the book is totally closed for a year as there is no bridge over the road, it might have been helpful to have been informed via email before we rang in a panic!

Excellent for short breaks

Beckbrook Farm
A lovely site, in pleasant surroundings with welcoming owners. The beautiful grounds, small lake and woodland are all maintained to a high standard and are available for visitors to stroll around. The pitches are set among small trees offering seclusion.  A well positioned CL for visits into the city.

a very unpleasant experience not to be repeated

Beckbrook Farm
This was our first use of our newly acquired motorhome. The first problem we had difficulty finding the hard standing and got stuck in mud. Mr Tims and Son helped tow us off the mud. Mrs Tims then arrived with a look on her face that resembled the Wicked Witch of the North about to cast a death spell on us. Mrs Tims was annoyed that her husband had helped us and told us we should have called the AA. Mrs Tims also then asked for compensation for the damage to their "grass" in pulling us off the mud. Mrs Tims then said we were welcome to leave immediately. I was ready to leave immediately but my wife spoke to Mrs Tims for a while and paid for one night. Mr and Mrs Tim then proceeded to inspect the "damage" to their muddy patch of threadbare grass and peer at us with venomous looks. Mrs Tims explained the whole look of the area was "spoiled". Mrs Tims appeared to drop any further requests for damage to the patch of mud. There is constant heavy traffic noise from a nearby road. This noise was still present late at night and early morning and was audible inside the motorhome. There are plenty of much friendlier and quieter sites in the area.
