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. Water and electric hook ups are on each pitch. We are a smallholding with pigs, sheep and chickens. We also have a small farm shop selling Gloucester old spot sausages, eggs, fresh fruit and veg, homemade cakes etc. And is surrounded by working farms.

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 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.

Fantastic site

What a gem of a site we found. John and Jackie made us(and our dog Abbie) feel so welcome. Site so peaceful and facilities excellent. And you must try the freshly laid eggs and their homemade sausages, Jam is delicious too. We loved having our chats and their helpful advise about the area.We will be back. Deb & Dave Henderson

A Great Find ...

Discovered this gem of a CL when others nearer the coast were full up. John and Jackie made us all (two grown ups, two younger people and the dog) feel very welcome and at home, with friendly and helpful chat and recommdations of places to visit. Fantastic facilities with lawned grass and no extra cuttings, water and electric to each pitch, easy to use disposal and rinse point, recycling and composting, an information shed with extra craft activities and games, and highly recommended home produce, especially the sausages and jam! Almost reluctant to write this review, because we will definitely return and want there to be enough space for us!

Satisfied campers!!

Having phoned to see if the site had a pitch, after arriving at another very waterlogged site,(not a caravan and motorhome site!!), we arrived to a very warm welcome from Jackie and John. We liked the fact that all pitches had both electric and water hook-ups. The site was lovley and peacefull and we were kept amused by the solitary little lamb annoying it's mum in the next field. The eggs and sausages (home made) for sale at Jackie and Johns road side shop were beautiful and they could not have been more helpfull, even towing us of the site when I got stuck in the soft ground when leaving. We will definitely be returning again when next in the area. Russ & Deirdre Flemming.

Just what we needed

Just arrived home after staying at this CL for the first time. A long journey for us (8 hrs to get home) but the wife has relatives in the area and I know that we will be staying here again, as the welcome from Jackie and John was great. The weather ( February! ) was a real bonus, but the site was everything I could have asked for. There were sheep in fields on two sides of us, chickens in a run ahead of us and an open field on the other side of us. Bliss. The eggs that were on sale were gorgeous and we've brought some sausage's home to try as well. There's a fair distance to travel from the site to reach the main towns etc, but that's the nature of the landscape and those " big open skies" are spectacular. I would recommend a stay here to anyone, so long as you don't expect bright lights ( except for the stars and sunsets ) and are able to cope without a wc/shower. Thank you for your welcome and being a truly nice couple. Will see you again.

Very Relaxing and Friendly

This site is so peaceful, you can't help but relax. We were the only caravan on site and were surrounded by sheep and chickens. We were very warmly welcomed and made to feel at home, as were our two dogs, who loved the freedom offered. There is a farm honesty stall with produce from the farm too. Would definitely recommend to anyone who likes the simple rural life.
