Why stay here ...

Mound Lodge CL site is a secluded ¾ acre all grass site, situated alongside a plum orchard and woodland. It sits on top of a hill which offers stunning views of Peterboroughto the East and rolling farmland to the North and South. We have easy access to and from the A1 (there is a junction that brings you straight into the village of Chesterton). Peterborough city centre is only 4 miles away and is served well by a bus route. We are only ¾ mile from the East of England Showground, which has regular large events including the motor home show, antiques fairs, and country-side shows.

The farm is highly diversified, and as well as the usual arable crops, we have a large and thriving PYO soft fruit enterprise with a farm shop. The farm shop is open late May until the end of October and is only 200m from the CL site. Here, we sell our own produce (strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants, plums, sweetcorn, pumpkins etc). Along side this, we offer a wide range of fresh vegetables and preserves. Refreshments are also available. Situated in the farmyard is a vintage craft studio.

There are a series of walks around the farm which are ideal for exercising dogs as well as taking in the views. The farm is also very close to The Green Wheel - a cycle route that surrounds Peterborough, enabling safe cycling into the city, as well as the beautiful Ferry Meadows Park and Nene Valley Steam Railway.

There is a wide choice of places to eat, to suit all budgets, as well as a supermarket and Post Office in close proximity.

Paddy and Susannah are happy to advise on local amenities.

mixed thoughts

Just arrived home having spent 3 nights on this CL can’t fault the site but we have a large motor home so wanted to use public transport. The site field is a good 10 to 15 minute walk to the road and involves negotiating a very steep driveway, so not one to walk if you struggle with hill climbs. Friday morning we went for the bus, bus route X4. Now it’s a bit complicated but the bus time table shows a half hour service, however the alternative bus (1 out of 2 ) travels a different route and does not go anywhere near the site. There is no mention of the alternative route in the bus time table. On the occasions we used the bus the buses were running late and we spent 90 minutes waiting on one occasion. Answer don’t rely on the bus service.

Excellent site, well worth a visit.

We have stayed on this site on a number of occasions, both in summer and in winter. The site is extremely close to Peterborough, less then 15 minutes to the city centre and the Cathedral, a short hop from the A1. But staying here, you could be in the middle of the countryside, so peaceful, no traffic noise, rabbits in abundance, varieties of birds. The site field is huge, lots of space available between caravans, high hedge protection from winds, the site is at the top of a hill, fabulous views over Peterborough. Our most recent stay at Hill Farm was cut short as our elderly aunt was poorly and we needed to return home, the site owners could not have been more kind and understanding, very nice people. We will certainly be staying here again.

Good well kept site

Excellent site, good location for access into Peterborough. Site is well kept & plenty of room, we drove past before realising the CL is on the farm ‘pick your own site’. Close to A1 but not an issue with noise. A couple of decent pubs close by. We stayed Sunday night so didn’t experience the cafe etc.being open. We cycled into the city & round the Green Wheel which passes straight passed Mound Lodge & the owner was happy for us to leave later on Monday once we completed it. I would recommend this site.

Peaceful Oasis

After spending a week with extended family at a Haven site the peace and tranquility here was bliss! The site is a short distance from Peterborough and has excellent transport links as well as excellent footpaths direct from the site. There are no laundry facilities as stated but there is a toilet at the main farm. However this is really for the visitors to the fruit farm. Will definitely return.

Lovely weekend stay

Stayed here Friday to Sunday and we were impressed. Lovely well kept camping field, plenty of space for 5 vans and shelter provided by large hedges. We thought there may be some noise from fruit pickers/ children's play area but there wasn't at all. There are nice walks around the site and some further afield on public footpaths. Site is very close to East of England showground, Ferry Meadows country park and Peterborough itself. Picked some strawberries which were lovely :) The PYO and café were very busy on the Sunday but this didn't affect us as the caravan site is separate. No one rushed us to leave on the Sunday either which was nice. Would definitely recommend and we will definitely return when we want a quick break close to home.
