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.

Great Site, Poor Wardens

What a great site, perfect for the Nene Valley Park, nicely laid out, well maintained. BUT, my oh my, the male wardens on the site need to revisit charm school. We arrived with a friend who soon had a run in with a warden even before they had moved from reception. As did we, we pulled into arrivals on the near side lane, my friend was in the offside arrival lane. The nearside arrival lane stop point is set back from the other arrival lane. Once I had checked in and got back to my car, my friend in a motorhome moved through the barrier. I was just about to set off and another motrohome pulled up along side me in the offside arrival lane, as the stop section for this lane is in front of mine it completely blocked my view of my exit, so I didn’t know I could getbthrough the barrier as my carcand caravan outfit is very long. My partner got out of the car and asked the motorhome if he could back up slightly when the younger of the male wardens rushed over and shouted at my partner saying the motorhome can stay there and cant you see you can get out, no is the answer to that and we should have been approached in a calmer manner and helped. The following day I witnessed Alan and the older of the other two wardens drive around and shout at a new arrival because of his windbreak, so loud this could be heard three pitches down, they then drove off smiling. Later in the day I also witnessed them going around the site at more than 5 mph on their buggy ‘looking for something’ as you could hear him on the radio. I’m sorry, but being an ex warden myself on both CCC and CMC affiliated as well as private sites this is totally unacceptable, there are calmer ways and means of dealing with all situations and these male wardens all looked stressed to the hilt, wrong job springs to mind. On the other hand the facilities are great, the wrist band covid toilet block entry system is good, except for the people who still think it is ok to go in, even though all the wrist bands are being used. I witnessed this too on another CMC site recently too. It’s a shame the NVR steam train wasn’t running, due to open on the 15th,p August, but can’t have everything. Reception staff were pleasant, masks required on entry to the reception/shop. Would we go again, possibly not unless the wardens learn to deal with situations in a calmer non dictatorial manner.

Shame about the warden

One of our favourite sites but unfortunate about the warden. He does not seem to understand that you can talk to people about a rule breaking without being agressive as most adult people are happy to accept a polite reminder if they have broken a rule in error, as we all do from time to time. In my job i came across a lot of people like him who get a little bit of power and it goes to their head. He really needs to stop the agression thing and learn how to talk to customers. After all we are paying customers and deserve a bit of respect. It is a great shame as the rest of the staff could not be nicer and this is a lovely site. The warden actually should also have a word with himself about the way he goes everywhere on his little tractor at top wack breaking the 5mph rule and is not averse to going the wrong way on the one way system, but obviously none of the rules apply to him. The other staff are much more sedate when driving the tractor.

A pleasant week's stay

We have used this site before - it is fine, and great for walks in the adjacent park. We have used it before - on this occasion we were trying out our new motorhome, and that immediately on release from "shielding", and there was a lot that was new after many years of caravanning! A good experience, and the site staff are coping well in unusual circumstances. Once more, there was plenty of help with the unfamiliar from fellow campers as well as the staff - all in all, an excellent experience. We used our own facilities, so can't comment on the site provision, but would comment that the motorhome service points could do with improvement, although we managed. A good week, and we will be back if we need again to use a site local to us.

One of my favourite sites

We have just returned from staying for 18 nights. When we arrived it was very busy and unfortunately couldn't get on our usual side of the site. However the two pitches we found on the west side were fab and spacious. The only issue I had was children running through pitches....I say children but the parents did this also from several caravans around us. We seemed to think that pitch boundaries or should I say just peoples awareness of other peoples things went out the window on that side. The covid 19 measures where all in place just a shame again some teenagers didn't think the wristbands at the toilets applied to them. There were a set number of toilets and showers available and also sinks to use. Hand sanitiser outside each door also. There was also extra cleaning due to the regulations. Alan the site warden is a friendly bloke and despite us only turning up once every year and him meeting and greeting 1000s he still remembers you and greets you with a friendly hello. We have never had any issues with Alan. If he does have an issue with someone he will let them no but no different to how he would deal with anyone else. For example: We were asked to move the windbreak due to it being to close to my car from my parents caravan for fire safety. We were happy to move it no issues there. I have heard others have had issues with Alan but he is fair with everyone. I know he asked someone to move their caravan due to it being the wrong side of the peg and just received a lot of chew... rules are there for a reason. Another someone dumped a car in the trees in the shade rather than on their pitch or in the car park. Alan found them spoke to them no issues they moved it granted they drove the wrong way but quickly u-turned and parked it up. Alan has also previously worked on the site with my dog who is very nervous and reactive to strangers and dogs he would never harm a dog on the site ever when we first met Alan he was still training them. He even remembered this when he saw us again and kept his distance to allow my dog to settle when he was stood talking to us. Its a real shame that Alan and his wife have dealt with crap from people as they arw only there to maintain the site, its rules etc. Shame they will be retiring this year.

Fantastic site with fantastic wardens

This is one of the best sites we visit love coming here Alan & Dee the main wardens our a lovely couple, they know their job well You can have a bit of banter and a laugh with them all. The reviews people have put on here about them is out of order they greet you with a smile and treat you well if you get on the wrong side of Alan because you have ignored what he has told you you can expect him to be cross. As for mistreatment of dogs he is one of many people l know who adores dogs he would never hurt one like what’s been said that’s not Alan at all, he is a gentle giant. Alan and his workers have worked hard on this site to get things done a lot better than it was a few years ago. We think it’s about time the C&MHC started standing up for their wardens they get so much abuse over time yet they are the ones that get slated and cant reply to bad reviews which is wrong. Keep the good work up all you wardens at Ferry Meadows Camp site Carol & Brian
