Why stay here ...

Ideally located in a beautiful open country park, Ferry Meadows Club Site offers a perfect holiday destination for the whole family - there is an excellent new play area on site, steam trains, a lake you can fish in, excellent cycle and walking trails, plus every kind of sporting facility you could think of. The country park boasts two golf courses and a super Watersports Centre for sailing and windsurfing.

If you're a bird watching enthusiast, the caravan site offers great viewings from dedicated bird hides by the river, and if you're feeling energetic there are no less than 60 miles of cycleway, all off-road. Only three miles away is the city centre of Peterborough will also leave the family spoilt for choice with fun activities like ice or roller skating, an indoor pool, a bowling alley, a cinema and theatre, tennis, badminton and snooker. If shopping is your bag, you certainly won't be disappointed - the Ferry Meadows Club Site is conveniently close to a 6 acre shopping complex to keep you busy. Popular attractions include Springsfields Gardens and Sacrewell Farm and Country Centre with working mill, farm trails and animals. 

Satisfy your appetite with a hearty meal at the pub just a short walk from the site, or if you're staying during the weekend you can enjoy fish and chips from the mobile van on site (please ask site staff for details).

Return visit

Ferry Meadows Caravan Club Site
Return visit, on arrival was met by a team member who informed us in a brusque manner we were early. I pointed out our Email which stated 12 midday, he told us it was wrong we would have to wait. There was another motorhome in front so it was not only us who had incorrect information. Within minutes other outfits had arrived. Otherwise our stay was super even though we moved from the East to the West side. Despite the team efforts to clean the facilities children had been showering, the floors were soaked on two occasions. Generally they were left untidy. The door lock was not working or had been left open so this may have been the problem. Once we were over on the west side everything improved so relieved to have moved. Great site in good location for enjoying Nene Valley, so much to do. We shall be back, thank you all at Ferry Meadows.

Another Weekend at Ferry Meadows

Ferry Meadows Caravan Club Site
We decided on another weekend here was needed after the better half got her rota for work. Booking in was easy and we were made aware that the site would be full on the Friday and Saturday of our stay, I decided to stay on the main side of the site this time rather than the "dark side" as we had that option, Staff were their normal professional and social selves and a credit to the club I cycled out to Stamford on the Friday while the better half enjoyed the sunshine on our plot 93 which was bathed in sun. We had lunch at the Beefeater pub on the Saturday when our daughter and boyfriend came up to visit, it was okay but it is a Chain pub. Site was quiet and the Steam Railway ran at the weekend which is a nice thing if you want to travel on the train. We'll be back but not until later in 2022 as we have other sites booked for 2021 and to Summer 2022. Only Gripes..... Speed on site and those who get to site early, walk around to check out vacant pitches and pop a "Reserved or Motorhome here" sign out....before they have paid and booked in....seems to be getting more commonplace this year

I'm not sure why so many negative reviews?

Ferry Meadows Caravan Club Site
I stayed here for 2 weeks, absolutely lovely did a different walk everyday with the dog. Enjoyed the Cafe by the Lakeside. I did not hear any noise after 10pm, even from the surrounding areas. I'm a lone traveller so to feel safe is important, I did, yes its dark at night, but that's what a torch is for!!! There were loads of bikes on site all was well and nothing taken whilst I was there. I stayed on the West Side, and walked round both sides fully and all appeared well. I really don't know why people have been negative about this site.

First time at a CMC site.

Ferry Meadows Caravan Club Site
First time using a CMC site. The site facilities were very clean but there was dog mess everywhere. (I’m a dog owner myself and my dog stayed with us). This isn’t the fault of the site, but more the fault of the people staying there. I’ve stayed at many private and other club sites and have never seen problems with guests cleaning up after their dogs, just seems to be this site. The location was Ok, not much to do or see nearby. We stayed over a weekend and it’s a noisy site with loud music from nearby venues and the traffic noise from nearby roads was loud. A bonus was that an ice cream van came to the site each night. The pitch sizes were off a good size.

A little disappointed

Ferry Meadows Caravan Club Site
We decided to go to Ferrymeadows this September- it was 6 years since we had been there. Not sure we’ll go again. Although the site is open all year the site office had very little in the way of provisions. Certainly no ice cream! Although it is described as having ‘silver wifi’ it was very unsatisfactory and the majority of the time was non existent. I asked the warden if there was a problem and his reply was”it’s always like this complain to the club”. Entry to the washrooms was by a code - the keys on the ladies were so stiff you needed iron fingers also having to constantly touch a keypad isn’t particularly COVID friendly plus the sanitiser dispensers on the wall outside were empty. There were no lights at the side of the road ways to light the way to the toilet block. Basically the whole site could do with a bit of TLC
