We used this site as a two night stopover on the way to Harwich. It's location is just a few miles from the A14 in the village of Cambourne and it's very easy to find and entry is simple. The field is massive and totally flat with the pitches down one side along the tree line. Cambourne is nothing much other than a new housing estate but the cl is within very easy reach of Huntingdon, St Ives, St. Neots and Cambridge for days out. The biggest draw for this cl must be for the on site fishing. I'm no fisherman but the four large lakes are in a picturesque setting and well laid out. Judging by the number of fishermen the site has a large number of regulars. There is a very large on site fishing shop which has a massive stock. There is toilet next door which can be used by cl users. The very slight downside if some daytime road noise which can be heard from the cl field.
Basic but everything you need inc. ehu, water and chemical waste disposal. Quiet, only slight road noise. Plenty of wildfowl to see while strolling around the fishing lakes- ducks, moorhens, 2 herons and red kites. Nice site would stay again.
The fishery was easy to find, but ensure you follow the directions given, using the wider roads. The access lane was attractive and although narrow there was good visibility all along it. We drove straight to the camping field as it was signposted to the right, rather than going to the tackle shop first as advised, and parked up at an EHU and tap. Lovely and flat. Only one other van arrived after us so we had a huge field almost to ourselves. Paid cash at the tackle shop to friendly owner. The toilet is next to the shop which is a few minutes walk from the vans. We couldn't find the Elsan point, which is probably our fault for not asking, as a previous reviewer said it was good. It wasn't a problem as this was only an overnight stop from Bristol to Norfolk. We walked into Camborne hoping for a meal in a pub but we weren't impressed. Walked back to CL then out through the lane at the back of the fishery to Elsworth which had two better pubs and was a much more attractive place. The walk is probably not a good option in wet weather! We didn't notice any troubling road noise and slept well.
We visited Lawn Farm CL at very short notice , this CL is a regular for us and this visit did not disappoint , Plenty of space and pitches are all serviced by water and EHU. Will be back soon.
Perfect CL, Very easy access, close to motorway links, friendly staff, slight traffic noise, but this did not bother us, masses of space on each pitch. Great walks from site for dogs. Will be back. KD
