A Brilliant CL in Everyway

Fantastic welcome from the owner Trevor which included a jar of complimentary home made chutney, nothing was too much trouble for this most helpful friendly site owner. The site was immaculately kept with grass so close cut it was more like a lawn than a grass pitch. The site is huge and I mean huge, which means plenty of space for caravans and awnings to spread out. The toilet block is always beautifully kept and they include disabled toilets and shower. Fabulous views from the site and walks nearby make it a pleasure to go back to the site after a hard day exploring the countryside towns and villages nearby. If your lucky you will see the Barn Owl as it hunts in the morning and evenings as well as buzzard overhead hares in the field opposite the site and a Kestrel that may sit on a nearby post.

  A village shop and the Three Pickerels Pub at Mepal two miles away means you don't have to go to bigger towns if all you want is to explore the many footpaths and cycle routes near the site. We went for a weekend and stayed a fortnight the site and area is so nice. Congratulations to Steve problem is it's going to be difficult to improve the site, but I'm sure he's thinking of something right now.

A Little Gem

A fantastic welcome from Trevor, we were greeted with a jar of home pear chutney on arrival, he waited in the pouring rain for us! We love cycling and there is a quiet back road route in to Ely, which was scenic and rural. We have a dog and enjoyed good walks from site. The bus stop is a five minute walk which took us into Ely on one of our days. Our biggest pleasure was watching the wildlife from our motorhome, a barn owl, and a family of hares. The shower block is immaculate along with bathroom facilities. We had a great stay. Pete, Marina and Martha Dog.

Winter stay

Trevor very welcoming & made sure we knew how to access gate & pitch as he wasn’t there to personally greet us. Working farm so other vehicles in the farm as would be expected, but we had a large hard standing to ourselves close to shower & toilet block. Trevor had laid a large artificial grass mat for us to walk on. Easy to get to Ely & local pub in village short walk. Pizzas looked wonderful. Trevor checked all was well & gave us a jar of Sal’s homemade pear chutney - delicious!

A very convenient CL for surrounding places to visit.

The access to Slade Paddock is excellent and a warm welcome awaits from Trevor. (His wife's Apple Chutney is superb!). The CL is ideally located for visits to Cambridge, Ely, St Ives, etc. There are some lovely and very interesting cycle rides from Slade Paddock, particularly to the north, around the "islands" of Ely. The bonus is that there are no hills! Trevor has built an excellent and very well maintained toilet and shower block and he tells me he has plans to add a small extension to house information on the area, restaurant recommendations, etc. Note that a mobile phone is essential for access via the automated gate, but this works well and ensures a good level of security.

A week in Fenland

We spent an enjoyable week at Slade Paddock. The site is easily accessible with security gated entrance onto a large flat grassed pitching area. We had a warm welcome from the owner Trevor. The CL is on a working arable farm so some noise is only to be expected but we were not disturbed by it. The toilets and shower were of a high standard. The view over the fields was very pleasant and also the big fenland sky. There are many towns and places of interest to visit within easy reach, lots of information can be found at the tourist information centre situated in Oliver Cromwells house museum in Ely (free parking in Ely).An excellent new addition to the CL network we shall return.
