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).

First Time At Our Local Club Site

This our first visit to the Ferry Meadows Club Site which is very local to where we live. The site is located in a woodland area right next to the Ferry Meadows Country Park. The site is kept to a very high standard and is very quiet and relaxing. The hard standing pitches on the West side are all pretty flat and easy to set up on. The East side has some hard standing pitches which again look flat and some grass pitches. The East side also has a play area for older children. The wardens are very friendly and helpful and are available to help if you need it. The site is also located near to the steam railway which can be heard from the park during the daytime which is a real treat if you are an enthusiast. This is a lovely site that we will definitely be back to time and time again :)

Fantastic Site Fantastic Wardens

We absolutely love this site and use it regular, the wardens our great can have a laugh and great banter. For those of you who slag the wardens you certainly must have got on the wrong side of them, We have never ever found them rude or abrupt, and as for the person slating off about all the notices scatter around the site they our their for your protection, if their were nothing telling you what’s what you would still complain, so the wardens can’t win. They have rules to follow it is their job so give them some slack. And as for them riding around in their truck they do have lots of things to do other than clean toilets, like bins and maintenance on 2 sites, just find something else to moan about because they do a fantastic job and l would like to see some of you lot do their job. They also get a lot of abuse and threats to put up with l have seen it first hand. We would like to wish Alan & Dee à fond farewell in your move to another site we will miss you both very much, keep doing what you our doing because we think you both do a fantastic job and we will both miss you

Irritating, unfriendly and needs updating

The location of this site is great and it has the potential to be first class. Small things let it down but we hope that this review allows some of these to be addressed. On arriving at the site you have to press an intercom button to be allowed in. Be careful. We saw one member lower his window to be greeted by one of the wardens (no face mask) trying to poke his head through the window to speak to him - remember Face and Space! This may seem picky, but as I checked in on Saturday 17th October I was told off for having a membership card that was out of date (our new one hadn't been posted before we left home on our travels, so had expired two weeks earlier). I was then told off for not having the Track & Trace App on my phone. Until you've had a lovely holiday in the south of England on non-club sites you don't realise how well everything runs with simple, minimal direction. On club sites like these its very hard to fully relax. As I was spotted cleaning my motorvan windscreen the warden who booked me in shouted across "I hope that you're only going to clean the windscreen!". Visiting the toilet (why do they have to close the whole block, male & female, for two hours from 10.00 -12.00?) was an experience. I've rarely seen so much white & red tape and so many signs telling us that the water supply had been disconnected and that we must not use the urinal, washbasin, shower etc. We had a sign telling us not to forget to return our wristband to the Milton. The icing on the cake, so to speak, was a full side of A4 that was a rant about baby wipes. There were at least 30 copies of this, all meticulously laminated and apparently endorsed by Sir David Attenborough. It's just a shame that nobody checked it for spelling and punctuation errors. It's just a shame that to stay on this site costs so much and yet you are meant to feel so grateful and guilty. Moving into the 21st Century doesn't mean that you have to use a leaf blower when a brush would do. Why have the noisy vehicles not gone electric? It's a shame to see soo much paper wasted on laminated notices. It's just so depressing that the staff on this site seem to be so irritated by members staying on it. With a more friendly site team, additional stones on most of the hard standings and an upgrading of the toilet blocks, this site would be splendid.

Lovely Site Excellent Wardens

Our stay here did not start too well... we arrived late and the receptionist told us there were no hard standing (should have stayed in the car park and waited for one the next day...) she gave me a map and a lot of the fields were closed as they were too boggy . We drove onto the first field that was ‘ok’ and duly got stuck, the wardens had a look and said we will have to dig you out in the morning. So our first night was in the middle of a field but it was fine. The wardens were fantastic and dug us out on the Saturday morning, we went straight onto a hard standing and it was fine. The dog walks around this site are amazing you can walk as long and far as you want. The site is spotless and everybody works really hard, we will come back for sure this is one of our top 5! The fish and chip van is also very good so indulge yourself!

All round good site

This was our first Club site we have visited. The staff were helpful & friendly and the site was overall nice. Because of the restrictions in place at the moment there is a band system in place and reduced amount of showers etc available. Unfortunately some people seemed to forget that there may bve others waiting to use the facilities. My husband had to wait outside for over 5 minutes for someone to come out before he could enter the building and once inside had to wait over 20 minutes for a shower as the people using them were taking an extra long one. He did think about going back later but decided against it. He finally had his shower and came out but the 'culprit' shower was still being used by the same person!!! Overall the site was lovely and plenty of walks to do around the site. Our pitch was perfect & plenty of space around us and not too close to our neighbours like we have found on other sites. We will most certainly be visiting again very soon
