Why stay here ...

Our site has easy access directly off the A1101 and is set well back from the road on an acre of mowed level grass. There is a water tap on each pitch and electric hook up is shared with the neighbouring caravan/ motor home. We are a small holding with sheep and chickens. We also have a small farm shop selling homemade sausages, eggs, fruit and veg, homemade cakes, jams etc. There is a small secure fenced field next to the camp site that can be used for children playing or running your dogs off lead. In the corner of the site there a picnic bench and fire pit for those family evenings , toasting marshmallows, watching the wildlife, telling stories and snuggling up keeping warm.

We are an excellent base for exploring Ely, Wisbech, Downham Market, Kings Lynn and Welney Wetlands Centre. If you wish to travel further afield, we are in easy reach of Sandringham, Cambridge, Peterborough or the beaches around the coast. We have an information shed on site to help you plan your days out.

Village stores, fish and chips and butchers are 1 mile away in the village.

Lovely Site, Lovely People

Stayed on this CL for one week. One of the friendliest sites we have ever been too. Immaculately well kept and the owners extremely friendly and accommodating. Definitely will be returning.

A late booking so we were lucky and much appreciated quick response from Jackie. In 15 yrs of staying on CLs, the welcome , help and information has to be one of our best experiences so our thanks to both John and Jackie for what be turned out to be a little eventful. Beautifully kept site, quiet and a specially assigned paddock for dog walking. Highly recommended CL

I can’t believe this site isn’t permanently full!

Whitehead Farm
Having had to cancel our original holiday at the last minute due to covid, we desperately looked to find somewhere, anywhere, that would allow us to have a fortnight family holiday and we did some research but www.clbooking.co.uk/ came to the rescue and we found a site that fitted most of our criteria admittedly in an area we wouldn’t have initially chosen but we decided to give it a go and we were not disappointed! While the local roads are not great for towing (some of the minor roads are unbelievably bumpy) the site itself is open, spacious, well-maintained with grass kept like a lawn, each of the pitches has its own water tap, and with grey waste going into the hedge it was like a bargain service pitch! There was some road noise from the A1101 but mainly farm traffic but wasn’t obtrusive - it was in August in the Fen Country! There is also no light pollution making star gazing on clear nights very good! There is an adjacent dog walk/childrens adventure field for pets and kids to let off steam. The pitch in itself isn’t small so you don’t feel on top of each other anyway and whilst there aren’t far reaching views, you can see over several fields so it’s sheltered but doesn’t feel claustrophobic. The owners, John and Jackie are so friendly and instantly made us and the children feel very welcome. They are on hand (and sell locally produced delicious sausages!) but are in no way intrusive. This site really has so much going for it that I was so surprised that for our 14 night stay there were never more than 3 units on site - in fact for the last few days it was just us and the owner’s daughter and her family! The family were very easy to get on with too so adults and kids all made new friends. We are all looking forward to visiting again in the future. A sensibly priced awesome site for families and well worth a visit.

Just what we wanted

Whitehead Farm
We have had a relaxing and peaceful stay. As the week has been very hot we have not moved far. The sheep have kept us company and we helped Jackie and John to move them. The field is level well mown with its own water tap and very spacious. The little veg stall is useful and our dog has enjoyed the off lead field. We have walked a little of banks of the Middle Level Drain when cooler. Otters and kingfishers are about if you are lucky enough to see them. Russell Butchers stock great meat and other delicacies. Jackie has just started an Airbnb so you could have great family get togethers. Very friendly hosts and the CL ifeels very secure.

Last minute find

Whitehead Farm
We at to change our plans at the last minute due to arrival of a new grandson ,tried the new cl booking site and came across this little gem only booked the week before . Arrived on the Thursday and the owner was waiting for me with gate open a nice wide entrance a friendly greeting and told we could pitch were we wanted as only ones on for the weekend. Why we were the only ones on is other people’s loss as water to every pitch A nice level field with sheep next door , a big field behind to walk dogs the owners are very friendly but leave you in peace but there if you need them .they do own a Airbnb next door so added advantage if want non caravaners to join you . Plenty of places to visit downham market is a attractive little town and we found a nice walk down a old railway line at March a few miles away . A lovely relaxing weekend.
