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.

Wonderful quiet and calm CL

We emailed Paddy to check availability on the CL and his response was lovely and quick. On arrival we phoned as the board says to let him know we were there and talked through when and where we could pay. The site is beautifully quiet with lots of birds around to watch and the grass is well maintained. We were told we could pitch anywhere that our hook up cable would reach, there are well spaced electric points all around the site. Water and waste were well sighned with hand sanitizer at the points. Plums trees loaded with fruit are along one edge of the site and there was other fruit and veg on offer in the farm shop. Walking the dogs was very easy as there are footpaths through the farm. This will be a regular stop for us from now on, we can thoroughly recommend this site.

Unique place to visit!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. As it is still impacted by the Covid 19 pandemic the Pick your Own wasn't open, but you could buy fruits from the farm shop. Being near the fruit orchards was lovely and a peaceful stroll around the outside of the orchards (after asking permission) was a delight, the views are amazing. There are a few walks that are nearby, you need an OS map! The drive is steep but walking slowly it is manageable, the views are amazing as is the wild life. Highly recommend this CL! The field is well maintained with the grass kept short, plenty of space to choose a pitch, the facilities easy to use, and in these current times hand sanitiser available at the facilities plus Covid secure guidelines at the entrance.

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.
