Noisy party venue - not a quiet site

Do not stay here when there is a party on at the venue unless you are going. We didnt know there was a party on the Saturday until we arrived and although the music was turned down at 1am, the party went on inside and outside next to the CL field until 3am. The owner did appologise and gave us a discount but the site not good either. Each pitch is only a caravan and car or motorhome and awning wide with no safety gap between. The facilities are basic and run down and there is constant road noise. Although its on a bus route to Cambridge, the nearest stop is at least half a mile away. We chose the site because others nearer Cambridge were full but we will not return, even if there isnt a party on, this would not be up to usual club standards.

Convenient for Cambridge

Stayed for 2 nights. Great host and the facilities are tired but clean. 6 miles on cycle route 51 to Cambridge and 10 minutes from public transport. As previously stated the pub is an 'events only' pub so I imagine it would be noisy if there was an event on when you stayed.

Noisy & Small site

I booked the site a week ahead & arrived on a Saturday to find out that there was a wedding reception on that night, which was not mentioned when the booking was taken. This was held in the outside area of the quirky Missing Sock, with a karaoke & DJ in the static double decker bus in the CL site! The site is just off the main A14 so there is constant 'white noise' of vehicles day & night. The plot is not a pretty one and is very tight to get in and out of, especially when you have a double axel unit. The spaces themselves are also small & the site full of weeds & prickly nettles. The toilet & shower are ok. The wifi didn't work - luckily I had a 4g signal. There are 2 pubs in the village of Stow-cum-Quy which was a 10 minute walk away. The sanitary disposal point would not flush away and was close of over flowing. The karaoke & disco didn't end until 12.30am - at no point was I offered a refund for the noise. Sadly not a return visit for us.

Worst site we've been on

We spent 3 nights here and they were not very nice. Space is so tight we didn't have room to put our awning up as there were 3 vans including ours and 7 yes 7 camper vans so 10 in total on a 5 pitch site. Location is very good just a shame it felt very cramped and very noisey as the 7 campers were all together.

Our Stay

It`s a shame that the 2 people that make this venue what it is are leaving for good next month (Oct) for pastures new. We have had the most pleasant time during our stay, but must point out that the Bar/Restaurant is not open any more. Would we return, probably not as the owner is planning a lot of changes over the winter, which may well effect the experience.
