Windy March Weekend at Slade Paddock

The CL is easy to find, and access is good, electric gate operated by mobile phone. We were pitched on the hard standing in the yard as the CL field was not use, ground was too wet. Trevor, the owner was on hand when we arrived to advise on pitching and where everything was, he had also laid some matting to pitch on, we were also given a jar of homemade chutney. ☺ The site has a lovely warm , clean toilet and shower block and a washing machine and sink. The grass CL area also looked very good, with nice views across the fields. We weren't lucky enough to see the Owl, but had sightings of Kestrels and Red Kites. The local village, five minutes walk away has a nice friendly pub which does pizza to take away or eat in. There is also a regular bus service from the village. There is a good dog walk just opposite the site entrance, which also leads to the village for a circular walk. The village doesn't have a shop, but there is a farm shop just a couple of miles away, and a shop and PO in Mepal. We visited NT Wicken Fen and Houghton Mill, Ely is worth a visit too. Only negative was that there was some early morning noise from the lorries leaving the yard on week days but was quiet at the weekend.

Excellent short stay

Stayed for two nights to test new motorhome. Despite near disaster on arrival (memo to self - check how firm ground is before driving onto grass..), we had an excellent stay. Very generous gift of chutney from Trevor. We were the only guests so had the small but very clean (and warm!) shower/toilet block to ourselves. There's a cycle path that takes you directly in to Ely from the end of the road, and it being flat, it's easy cycling. Very pleasant site, would stay here again if we're in the area.

A great CL

Just left Trevor at Slade Paddock (14th Dec), even at this time of year the site facilities are totally adequate. Separate ladies / men’s loos and tip top utility / shower room, all immaculate, gleaming and Warm ! Site ideally situated for visiting Ely, Newmarket and Cambridge. Local bus (The Ely ZIpper) just 400 metres away in the village. A good addition to the CL network, we’ll be back !

Perfect Late Autumn Location

The site is very easy to find and access using the security information supplied upon booking. A very warm welcome from Trevor upon arrival and easy to get set up. First class facilities, lovely to have an indoor shower at this time of year - a real luxury! We had a fantastic week in late October visiting Ely, Welney WWT, Lakenheath Fen, Wicken Fen, Cambridge - loads of choice in the area. We can thoroughly recommend this site.
