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).

Another good stay at Ferry Meadows

We have stayed at Ferry Meadows site for a number of years and have never had to criticise either the site itself or the welcome offered by the wardens, who are always helpful and friendly. The facilities are kept exceptionally clean and there is a toilet available when these are closed for cleaning. The dish washing room is inside which is always a bonus on cold or rainy days. The shop stocks the usual essentials and newspapers can be ordered the day before. The site is perfectly located by the Nene Valley Country Park, which has two cafes, large expanses of water plus playgrounds for all ages and a miniature railway. There is also the opportunity to sail. The dog walking is excellent with plenty of off lead time, although you need to be aware that cyclists use the paths too. There is a local garden centre, which has a cafe but only allow dogs in the outside seating area. Nearby, there is also a small Tesco, vet, fish and chip shop, newsagents, pharmacy and chinese restaurant. Bus stops to Peterborough are also within the vicinity as is the Nene Valley railway.

Good site.

First time staying at ferry meadows site. I found the staff very friendly and helpful. Nice place to stay for a base for visiting the country park next to the site. Site and facilities kept clean and tidy. We will be back again in the summer time.

Great site

Great site for wild life (saw the otter) walking and cycling with good cafes in the park. Some road noise in the evening/night from the country park access road but it did not disturb us. The motorhome access point needs some rethinking as although the warden told us to go on either way in the one way road this meant we blocked the road to get the tap over the drain point. This upset the caravan trying to get down the road and provoked some comments from the caravanner opposite who said they should be in the corner of the site out of the way!! Room for both in the club l thought but hey ho. Very friendly site wardens and good facilities and will stop longer next time as this was only a stop over.

Helpful Warden

We have just returned from a seven week jolly around France. We stayed at Ferry Meadows on the way out in August and it was obvious that on our arrival we had a problem with our mover. The warden came to our rescue and identified the problems and went above and beyond the call of duty to help us. The problems were resolved quickly and it was one of those situations that had it happened in France the problem of explaining in my dodgy French and the cost does not bear thinking about. Thanks to the warden we had a worry free time in France - a massive thank you !!
