Just what a CL site does

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.

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.

Basic but the price is right.

Signage from North sparse (we overshot the drive) but good from the South. Site clean and tidy, well lit at night. Drinking water and waste point at top of site, bins at bottom. Grass short, level and well drained despite plenty of recent rain. For 12 quid, nothing to grumble about. Spent 4 nights there and would gladly go again.

Very Good CL

This is a well kept site with good drainage. Basic facilities but all kept in very good order. Grass is well cared for and rubbish removed regularly. Mr Morley goes out of his way to make you feel welcome without being intrusive. Have just returned from 4 nights over the weekend and found plenty to occupy us in the surrounding area. Look forward to a return trip!

Nice site

We used this for a one-night stop on the way to Norfolk. Basic site but nicely kept, level and welcoming. Walked into Fordham for supplies from the local Co-op and found one of the footpaths in the area. Very quiet location, although when you pitch bear in mind that there is a bright street lamp in the right hand corner of the site. We were fine in our motor home, but if you are in a caravan with people sleeping in the awning it will be noticeable. Good drainage so we had no concerns about sinking in the grass, despite the recent rain.
