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.

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.

Our View

The site is well appointed and manicured to a high standard. Access and egress security is very good and well controlled. The toilets and showers are pristinely clean and well maintained. You are close to great facilities including a beefeater, cafe, park and steam railway within walking distance. The taff are very accommodating, friendly, helpful and available. The only negative is the steam railway, it runs till 2100 in the evening and every time it passes the steam whistle is blown very loudly 3 to 4 times. But a small price to pay when staying at such a great site. Thanks John Davis

Don't arrive early

Don't arrive at this site early, we went out in our car one morning during our stay and came back at 11.45am to find a large motorhome at the first barrier, the driver had spoken to the wardens via the intercom system and had been refused entry. That meant we had to reverse out across a busy footpath and busy road to allow this motorhome to reverse out, go and sit down the road for 15 minutes before the wardens would let him in. Why couldn't this motorhome been allowed in to wait in the late night arrivals area which was empty for 15 minutes instead of making two vehicle perform a dangerous manoeuvre. During our stay work was carried out on several of the pitches and although it was rather noisy, we must praise the workmen for a very neat and tidy job.

Great Site in a Great Location

We stayed for 4 nights in late February early March. Ferry Meadows is split over two sites, East and West, although in the winter months the West site only is open and this where the reception is also located. The facilities are of the usual high C&MC standard, and some of the pitches have also very recently been re-laid, as has part of the road around them. The very best part of the Ferry Meadows site is it’s location. Set in the Nene Valley Country Park, there are acres of open space for people of all ages (and their dogs!) to enjoy. There are also three large lakes (reclaimed gravel pits) with an abundance of wildlife to watch and enjoy. Many other reviewers have listed the many other advantages of this excellent site and I can only agree with them. Great Site in a Great Location

Excellent site - spotless facilities.

The site is truly excellent, really well maintained spotless facilities, easy access off the A1, so an ideal stop-over when heading north. It's also immediately adjacent to a wetlands wildlife area with great dog-walking facilities. Really could not fault this site at all.

Short break in journey travelling north

Stopped off here in February for 2 nights during half term week. We were lucky to get a pitch at short notice. The site was almost full. There were only 2 couples on duty and they were very busy. Quiet site in the evenings, and wonderfully placed next to Nene Country Park. The children's play area was small for the number of children on site, but had the other half of the site been open I am sure the play area over there would have been fine. The site was easy to find and lots of cycling options. We hired bikes from Rutland Cycling and our grandson got to try a bike with multiple gears. I can see us using this site again to break our journey from the North down to London.
