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.

A return visit-a great weekend!

Stayed here at Ferry Meadows for 4 nights last week with the other half and 2 year old daughter. Arrived Thursday and left Monday. Site very quite until 11.30 Friday Morning then it was like wacky races watching people zooming in and around the site trying to bag the best pitches- definitely not driving at 5 mph even though there were kids and dogs about. We love this site as very handy for Nene Park and the great play ground on the camp site itself. Only spoiler was the amount of barking dogs all day every day early morning and late in to evenings-not great when trying to get kids asleep (not anti-dog just inconsiderate dog owners). We will be back.

Horses for Courses

We have been told so many times on our travels about Ferry Meadows, and how great it was, that we added a visit for two days on our return leg of a trip to the lakes. Its the first site we have ever visited that had a member of staff at the barrier, telling us the system to queue and check in. My wife was told to check in while i waited in the drivers seat. She was told which area we were to choose a pitch, and the best/quietest areas within that side of the site. We headed off.....to stop at the water fill area......all other arrivals had to wait for water or by pass us. We chose a pitch, and changed it for another on the grass areas, and settled in. Throughout the rest of the day, into the night, a steady stream of units of all types, scoured the area and filled up the pitches Bedlam flashed into our minds, as we had mistakenly chosen Friday and Saturday nights, and the families were intent on enjoying their weekend away. It started to look manic One toilet block, a big childrens park, loads to do, space for bikes and games of all sorts, might be heaven for some but not for us This site has lots going for it, we agree, for families. Best time for quiet times, are school days, Monday to Thursday. Walking....Biking...etc are brilliant, and at the right time we will return, but, we called it quits and decided to head home after one night. The site office was visited, to tell them we had vacated our pitch, and to leave our barrier card. The on duty staff were extremely sorry, and offered us a pitch on the main side of the site, which was mainly adults, but we declined, as our minds were already set. They said that the site was always busy at weekends and holidays, and appealed to local families as well as tourers. So Horses for Courses.......If you want/expect peace and quiet, this might not be the place......If you want things to do, and come at the right time, this is a great place to try. A full site of families usually means the untidiness you get with children normally, such as in the washroom. But adults clean up for the next user, children dont....be prepared. This echoes previous reviews This being said, we WILL try the site again , but on our own terms, and at the right time. I would suggest you make some of the areas ADULTS ONLY with a definate distinction between the groups

Doggy HEAVEN

Ferry Meadows is only 25 miles from home but is such a lovely site we visit 4 or 5 times every year. The wardens are so friendly and helpful, the site is absolutely immaculate with a fantastic toilet and shower block. We always pitch on "the other side" where there is so much space between pitches you can really spread out. Last weekend we had our Grandchildren with us so pitched next to the kiddies play area, whilst normally we keep as far away from it as possible. In actual fact we were not disturbed by the kids playing. Our dogs absolutely adore the nene valley park nearby, where your dogs can be off lead and also swim if they like. There is also the Nene Valley Steam railway nearby. If you want a really relaxing break on a truly great site, this is the place to visit.

Fabulous

Ferry Meadows is to us a gem of a site even if at times it can be very busy. there is so much to see and do in the area. with the park on the doorstep it is great for walking, cycling or just sitting watching the wild life. or you can have a boat trip along the river or around the lake . further over is the water sports centre for all sorts of daring-do. although i don't have a dog it looks amazing for dog walking. i personally don't like such long leads i see people using. dogs are simply not under control on leads nearly stretching up to four metres. that's just me. overall Ferry Meadows is a great place to visit whatever is your own particular interest. i would be back in shot if my other half said yes.

Spring bank holiday

Yet another excellent holiday. Like previous comments we do find the TV reception poor via the bollard connection. However, depending on your pitch location you can use your status aerial. Our last day was somewhat spoiled by several vans arriving late evening all wanting to pitch together. Although they had to spread out they had no consideration to the noise levels nor how they got from one pitch to the other. e.g across the front of anyone's van or even through the hedges. They sat out until about midnight laughing and joking. Sadly the children were no better either. Why children are allowed to throw the loose stones from the pitch around I'll never understand.
