Drains well

237 Carter Street
We also received a warm welcome from the owner, Roger Morely. We were the only occupants for the two nights we stayed on this small, quiet but well cared for CL. I cannot add a great deal further or disagree with what previous reviewers have stated but with the poor weather expected, I was a bit concerned about using grass pitching but I had noted the site was open all year, which is mostly a good indication of weather resilient ground conditions. This proved to be the case because it did rain nearly all day on the Saturday but the ground drained well and remained firm. I need not have been concerned because we had no problems leaving the site in our motorhome on the Sunday.

Brilliant CL. Easy Access and flat.

237 Carter Street
We stayed here for 2 nights. Mr Morley was very welcoming. Came and greeted us and came to say goodbye as we were leaving. Lovely flat site. Nice circular walk to the village which has a co-op, a Londis, 2 indian restaurants, a chinese and a chip shop. The pub is part of the indian takeaway, its not dog friendly inside but we sat outside which was covered which was fine. Easy access to the site - couldn't be easier actually for us newbies. Good access to Ely, Wicken Fen etc. We would definitely go back.

Just what a CL site does

237 Carter Street
I had spoken with Mr Morley on day of arrival and he was very welcoming, said there would be 4 other vans on site and I would have a vacant pitch, which there was.. nice spacious field pretty level and the grass is well kept. Water, Toilet and grey waste at the top between pitch 2-3 and rubbish and recycling by the main gate.. just what we want from a CL peace and tranquil, yiu can hear the road but way in the distance so not a problem, Thx Tony & Sarah Lyon

Nice site, well placed.

237 Carter Street
Visited Oct 2014. A well sheltered, level spacious site, with tidy cut and collected grass, and well set out facilities. Very friendly owner, this well established site is well placed to explore the area, Cambridge, Newmarket, and Bury St.Edmund's. Nearby are Anglesey Abbey and Ickworth as well as Wicken Fen. Good access to small roads for cycling, but even these are busy, so use the plentiful cycle paths for safety. The next door mobile home chalets are very quiet and smart, seen over a high fence, the only noise on this peaceful site being the traffic on nearby A142. There is a Co-op shop nearby, and a couple of pubs, and a great and popular garden centre cafe.
