Why stay here ...

Why not visit us at Priors Field Farm where you can enjoy lovely local walks, cycle rides, an RSPB reserve on the doorstep and several pubs within easy walk or cycle ride.  The River Great Ouse and the Ouse Valley way are literally across the road enabling you to get into St Ives on foot.  If you would rather go on two wheels, the cycleway outside allows you to have a very safe flat journey into St Ives.

The farm is accessed directly from the A1123. There are no fixed pitches as we want you to be able to please yourself and just enjoy the views over open countryside. There is power, water and a toilet with disposal facilities.

A cycleway/footpath has recently been completed connecting the Farm to Bluntisham Village which is 500m away (10 minute walk).

The village provides the following:

  • Budgens Supermarket with very good butcher
  • BP petrol station that can supply gas
  • Bluntisham Fryer Fish and Chip Shop (definitely worth a visit, can deliver if required)
  • Cafe with extensive menu for breakfast and lunch
  • Hand car wash
  • Barbers

The Pubs:

  • White Swan - Bluntisham (0.6 miles 15 mins walk, 5 mins by bike)
  • The Green Man - Colne (1.4 miles, 27 mins walks, 10 mins by bike)
  • The Crown Pub & Curry Garden Restaurant - Earith (1.6 miles, 31 mins walk, 12 mins by bike)
  • The Queens Head - Needingworth (1.9 miles, 38 mins walk, 15 mins by bike)
  • Pike and Eel - Needingworth (2.5 miles, 50 mins walk, 20 mins by bike)
  • Old Ferry Boat - Holywell (3.1 miles, 1 hr walk, 25 mins by bike)

There are the following local attractions:

On the way to St Ives is a Morrisons Supermarket - with petrol station and additional late opening shop. Located in the surrounding area there is a Tesco local, Marks & Spencers, McDonalds, Costa and a Subway. All only 2.9 miles away (accessible by the cycle path and a minor road).

Beware the busy road

Stayed here for 4 nights as the write up sounded very appealing - plus it had the added bonus of a loo - a must for our friends who joined us in their campervan. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. We were told the ideal place to pitch up should we be battered with the wind - and we were also assured that a land rover was to hand should we get bogged in - it was very wet! Thankfully the land rover was not required! The site is a short distance from St Ives and were it not for the weather we would have cycled there - but there are some lovely little villages roundabouts - which we discovered on a cycle ride on our last day. There was no rush to leave as no one else was booked in. We enjoyed our stay - but we all agreed that £20 was a bit on the expensive side, especially considering its close proximity to a very busy road. We were all woken up just after 6 in the morning on the Friday by the heavy traffic. On the Saturday a speeding vehicle woke me up at 5.45! The traffic wasn't as busy as the Friday - but it was still very noticeable. Thankfully Sunday traffic was lighter. As mentioned above, I booked the site for us and our friends (also CAMC members) as they required a loo. The facilities state exclusive use of the loo - which is great - but the loo also doubles up as the disposal area for grey waste as well as the chemical toilet. Although the toilet itself was clean enough - I had to wipe the floor after it got covered with splashes from emptying the cassette - as did my husband when he emptied the cassette. We were all in agreement that the grey and black waste disposal should be separate to the wc, not only that the cistern took forever to refill so emptying the loo took longer than normal.

A great stay

We stayed here for a week with our friends, the owners Paul and Julie were very welcoming and knowledgable, our Motorhomes were sited together and we were able to open our awnings facing each other, but the wind came up so we had to take them down again. We had a great time and the site is basic but that was all we needed water and emptying facilities. The site is close to the main road but it did not worry us and Paul is in the process of installing a new high fence which will hopefully stop some of the noise from passing traffic, although it was quiet at night. Lovely area with cycle paths, all in all a lovely little site and a great stay.

Lovely site.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights and could not be more happy. Cycle paths on your doorstep into St Ives, with shops,pubs and restaurants. We pitched overlooking fields with stunning sunsets .RSPB site nearby and plenty of walks. The owners Julie and Paul could not be more helpful and friendly, we will definitely be back year after year.

Very pleasant site, exceptionally helpful and friendly owners

My first ever CL on its first weekend of opening and my first review. Lovely site, surprisingly quiet and peaceful despite the road being fairly busy when we got there. Owners were extremely helpful and welcoming. Due to illness we didnt stay for our second night or check out the nearby places of interest but look forward to hopefully returning when we get a chance for our walk into St Ives which sadly we didn't get to do. Apparently it is also a short distance to the guided busway into Cambridge so maybe we will need 2 days! I wish the owners success in their new venture.

Very Good

Stayed here for two nights over the Whitsun Bank Holiday weekend. To be perfectly honest, we only booked this CL because we left it too late to book a space on any sites closer to Cambridge. We're glad we did get in here though, the hosts are friendly, helpful and welcoming and the site is peaceful and very clean and tidy. Overall, a credit to the hosts. TV Reception is good, as is the 4G mobile broadband (very useful for watching Netflix etc while away from home). The nearest town is St. Ives,which is very picturesque and Cambridge itself is a half-hour drive away. There is a well-stocked Budgens mini-mart in the petrol station about half a mile from the site. Going the other way a couple of miles, there is a large Morrisons with adjacent Costa Coffee, Subway and McDonalds. The only small issue is that it's easy to miss it and drive past (like we did), but there is plenty of room to turn your outfit around in the petrol station just down the road. We will be back.
