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 site for touring

The staff were very friendly at this site. The site is easily accessible from the A14 and the facilities were clean and tidy. The Beefeater at the end of the lane was great too, nice food and ideal on a cold night, a nice touch with lights along the walkway too. We will definately use it again if we are in that area.

Our 3rd stay

Stayed there 3 times as it's so convenient from the A1. I already reviewed this site previously but need to add a comment. Great site, great facilities, friendly wardens etc BUT having a drive over grey water disposal point on the way out is lacking. Due to the one way system, we had to leave the site with a tankful of waste water. The CMC needs to address this. Apart from that, we will always use this site on the way down south and back

Great stay but lacking for the children

This was our second time staying at this site, same time last year so was easy to compare. This year the site was a lot more quiet than when we stayed the previous year and had the choice of pitches. We were able to pitch up by the small park which meant I was happier letting my children go over to the park together. Unfortunately the park on the main side had gone down hill with a distinct lack of attention to its maintenance and upkeep. There were items missing which I can only assume had broken and never been replaced. I was aware from my brother who had stayed later in the year that there was a second play park on the other side which was new and much larger from photos I had seen. I had asked when we arrived whether we could walk onto the second side to use the park which was closed to stay on, but we were told it was closed. I think the site needs to invest in the play park on the main side if they close the other side during the quieter months. There were plenty of children running around and cycling, turning up to use the play park and walking away disappointed. I don’t think the site should rely on Nene Park to supply the better play parks which are walking distance but require the whole family to go. The site is good quality and clean as expected by the CAMC and this is down to the work put in by the wardens. I think the pitches need some work to upgrade them being open all year round means they are in constant use. Even a fresh batch of shingle on top to freshen it all up. We will return as it’s a handy site only being 45minutes away. I hope the review about the park is taken notice of by the CAMC and the park is upgraded for next year. If anyone likes a good Chinese, I’d recommend Tasty House in Orton Waterville which is only 2 minute drive from the site, generous portions of meat and veg in the dishes and really tasty.

Great site

We come here several times a year , great site , lovely wardens , toilets are always immaculate , the only criticism is the hard standings really need re doing , when we were there in January 2020 there was a lot of pitches that got flooded .There is a Tesco Express in walking distance and Orton Meares which has a few shops and a good fish and chip shop just round the corner from QD , a pub just down the road and a garden centre which does a good lunch . A great park with some really good walks for the dog and at least 3 play areas for children , a good cafe reasonably priced everything for young and old .
