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).

great other than the wifi

Ferry Meadows Caravan Club Site

Excellent site in all respects EXCEPT WIFI and 4G reception which is absolutely awful. I complained to the staff about the constant wifi dropouts and being unable to connect most of the time and was told its always unpredictable and I should call Air Angel. Frankly that's not good enough and the staff should be calling Air Angel as my contract is with the Club not their suppliers. Other than that its a great site with good facilities and superb walking and biking trails although closing the shower block from 10-12 is a bit early I would say.

Great Site but avoid paying for the Wifi - its a waste of money

Ferry Meadows Caravan Club Site
Me & my partner both purchased the WIFI @ £11 per week, but it very rarely worked so I would say do not bother At the moment they are also closing the showers/toilets block between 10-12 which I found quite inconvenient, you are on holiday & don't want to be getting up early or rushing for a shower....

Good base for exploring the area

Ferry Meadows Caravan Club Site
Ferry Meadows is a large site separated by a road into 2 distinct areas. The West side is mainly hardstanding, set out in standard Club fashion. The East side is predominantly grass, arranged in a number of glades with generous sized pitches. Some of these have sunk with years of use and can be prone to flooding during heavy downpours. There is a booster system for tv, but this did not work on the bollard next to our pitch and looked like it had been broken for some time. The grass was quite long and we didn’t see any being cut during our stay. Also one of the staff chose Sunday morning when the site was packed to spray weedkiller around behind some of the units. As with most sites now the earliest arrival time is stated as being 1300 but we saw units arriving, often before 1200 and being allowed onto site. Access from the A1 is easy. We did not use the toilet facilities as they were limited due to covid. The now pretty standard (on club sites) system of using wrist bands was in place. However during our stay, particularly over the weekend people chose to ignore this. The site is right next to Nene Park and close to the river so campers are spoilt for choice when it comes to walking. With rabbits and squirrels running everywhere it’s doggie heaven. Peterborough is an hours leisurely stroll with it’s magnificent cathedral. There is a Tesco express within 20 minutes walk along traffic free paths. For walkers, dog owners, cyclists or anyone just wanting to relax in pleasant surroundings this site makes a good base for both short breaks or a longer holiday.

Ideal for Peace and Quiet

Ferry Meadows Caravan Club Site
We have just spent 8 days caravanning here. The site was busy but there was ample room for all. The site was well laid out, with both hard standing and grass pitches. The staff were very friendly, helpful and made you feel welcomed. Several times a day the site service points were cleaned to, an extremely high standard. The pitch we where on was on the west side in the 70s. It was peaceful and quiet the only thing that disturbed the quiet was the wildlife. If you like watching woods with nature pouring out that is what you will find. You can walk into the nearby park with its lakes and Cafes. Yes, we will go back again.

First night motorhoming

Ferry Meadows Caravan Club Site
This was our very first site for our very first time in a motorhome. Would have been nice to have had some basic instructions for the electric hook up but a member of staff came and checked on us after we called the site office who helped us. All in all we thought it was a lovely site, mainly peaceful although we could hear some noise from people in the evening, not sure if they were on or off site. Grey water drain facility was a bit fiddly for first timers but we managed. We only stayed one night as a halfway point and wished we could have had longer to explore Nene Park as it sounded lovely. Our favourite aspect was all the cycle routes on the doorstep, one of which took us to and from The Gordon Arms where we had a nice meal.
