Quality Site

The site is a credit to Trevor whose fastidious attention to detail makes this a superb destination. Everything is of the highest quality, clean, well conceived and beautifully maintained. Toilets and showers are immaculate, as is the manicured grass. Gas barbecue available for guests, pub up the road, hares and other wildlife on site, what more could you want?

Excellent CL site

We stayed on this site for a week ,and Trevor the site owner was very friendly and welcoming .We have been caravaning 40 years and we have never found a CL site as nice as this. The site was flat and grass cut short,it has a water tap at every pitch absolutely fantastic Toilets and showers ,not forgetting Large T V room lounge chairs , it also has a washing machine and gas barbecue which can be used by all the caravanners .we would recommend this site it could not of been any better . We enjoyed our stay with our three border collies .

A site not to be missed

Having read the previous reviews of this site, I booked in for 3 nights expecting to be disappointed and nothing is ever so good as it seems. having used Google Earth to look at the site , what appeared to be a barren field turn out to be a beautiful well lawned area with some of the best facilities I have found in over 40 years of caravanning. In fact it was hard to believe that this was a CL as it new shower block, toilets and kitchen as well as TV and information room were all first class. Water and hook-ups were on every pitch so no long trips to the end of a field were needed. Trevor, the owner was on hand to help if necessary and provide additional information about the area. Excellent place for those retired and families alike. A site not to be missed.

Chance Discovery

We were looking for a site close to Haddenham and discovered Slade Paddock. What a Gem, the owner Trevor has put a lot of effort into creating a mini camp site with a modern purpose built toilet/shower block and washing/laundry facilities. Each pitch has both running water and electrical hook up. The camping area is exceptionally clean and well maintained; Trevor is both a very pleasant and approachable gentleman. The bus service timetable is displayed in the TV lounge that also houses a large commercial fridge for general use. A useful/thoughtful addition is that bottles of red and white wine are available with an honesty box for payment. We also liked the security of electric gate system and that the working barns whilst occupied were far enough away not to be intrusive but would help to alleviate any unwanted interest in our unit. We have been to many CL's over our years in the club but must rate this one as being right up there, Well Done Trevor!

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.
