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).

Back again

We have used this site before as a stop over on our way to Dover. The facilities and location are "spot on". We travel with 2 Labradors and the proximity of the Nene Valley Park is superb it allow us to let the dogs have a run to burn off some energy. Will definitely use this site again, as either a stop over or a longer stay.

Great site right on top of Ferry Meadows

Good site, grass pitches large and right next to Ferry Meadows, which can be a bit noisy. Remember to pack the bug spray, we got eaten alive by the mosquitos! 😆

Great site

We have just returned from our yearly visit to Ferry Meadows and had a great time. The site was clean and tidy as always and the staff were great. There was a report of some bikes stolen but this was not the fault of the staff who are always patrolling the site. We come every year and have never experienced any problems regarding unwanted visitors. We shall definitely be back.

Time for a makeover and some parental re-education

Recently stayed at Ferry Meadows. We have been here a few times and always enjoy the visit. However, we were very surprised at how run down the site is starting to look now. I know some people have slated the wardens recently but to be honest I think its more to do with the lack of respect by visitors to the site. Although I understand there have been a few problems recently regarding the wardens I found them to be polite and trying thier best. This is a large site when both sides are open and it seemed to me that the wardens are having a tough time keeping up with the work load. The Toilet block on the B side was dirty most of the day with wet floors where people don't clean up after themselves. Toilets were full of mess where they hadn't been flushed or cleaned after use even though brushes are provided as are floor mops. The wash up area was disgusting with food waste being left in the drains and all over the floors. One of the sinks didn't work at all, seemingly the taps were broken. The grassed area was being cut when we arrived but because of the warm weather and heavy rain the grass was growing faster than the wardens could keep up with it. The dog bin near the gate was left full to overflowing for about 4 days with no sign that anyone was going to empty it. Overall the site is in a lovely location but the toilet block is old and tired and needs renovating. The wardens could also do with more help during the summer months and the visitors in general need a bit of an education in parental control and cleanliness. I bet they don't leave thier own homes in the state they left the washup and toilet facilities.

Great stay here

This was my first ever caravan trip after me and my partner recently purchased a caravan. Had a great time, its a busy site but there are plenty of places to go for a country walk or pitches available for a bit of peace. The staff where great, I realised that we didn't have any mugs and the warden on reception was kind enough to lend me one for a morning coffee until I was able to go to the Tesco to buy some. The WiFi is to be desired and rather costly, surprisingly in 2019, the club doesn't seem to offer free WiFi, which would be a welcome addition as these sites aren't cheap. Also overheard a conversation about theft over the weekend but hopefully the site will look to improve security. Other than that this site is a brilliant place for a break with plenty of things to do to entertain everyone and will be visiting again.
