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. If shopping is your bag, you certainly won't be disappointed - the Ferry Meadows Club Campsite 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.

Excellent location

Ferry Meadows Club Campsite
We stayed just for one night because we had tickets for an event at the nearby East of England Arena. We've been to events at that Arena dozens of times but never explored the area. The site is excellent, big level pitches, spotless modern facilities, a warm welcome and right next door, a massive country park with huge lakes. Brilliant for cycling, dog walking, bird watching, etc. Completely quiet and peaceful, but loads of shops, restaurants etc a short drive away. It's great. Perhaps not the most obviously picturesque part of the country but a pleasant surprise.

Ferry Meadows Club Campsite
After 30 years as caravaners this is our first stay at FM. We know the country park well as we are locals, it is lovely, but we wouldn't have considered bringing the caravan were it not for having work done on our house and the need to be out the way yet stay local. Its been fantastic. Just my opinion but this is one of the best sites on the network. We stayed on the East side because we prefer grass pitches. Grass is short ,ground firm and relatively flat. enough shade if you need it but a feeling of light and openness, none of the glowring heavy cover you can get with trees. Pitches are divided into areas so whilst quite large the site doesn't feel it. Possibly a downside is that there's only one amenities block and it would be a bit of a trek from some pitches and may be a bit pushed if the site was full. However that's a very minor quibble. We didn't need the services of the wardens directly but they were a cheerful friendly bunch when we saw them on their rounds and the site is very clean and well maintained. Arrivals are well organised. This is a large busy site but doesn't feel it. If walking or cycling is your thing you won't be disappointed, there is literally miles off road easy going well maintained tracks on your doorstep. Watersports for all ages literally next door, try a pedalo on one of the lakes or have a go at paddle boarding. The site is a day trip away from the coast for a change. Short trip out? Try Stamford for a lovely town with super shops and places to eat. Springfields at Spalding also worth a visit. There is so much to do for all ages and abilities. I had limited expectations but I shouldn't have. This place is great.

Unfortunately there was a lot of loud noise from the Truckfest at the East of England site and the toilets were in a dreadful state late on in the day but it’s a great location and nice site and still enjoyed the stay.

Great location!

Ferry Meadows Club Campsite
Our first visit here on a bank holiday weekend. The Wardens were super busy with a steady flow of arrivals but this went quite smoothly for us arriving at 3pm. The site is divided into East and West, separated by quite a busy road. We were on the West side and we were on a good flat pich for our Motorhome. The site is clean and tidy and the facilities were a liitle dated but there was plenty of hot water. The male toilets were blocked one morning and there was a queue of not very happy men awaiting the plumber. It seems plumbing is an issue here. The location of this site is what makes it so nice - literally 2 minutes from the beautiful Nene Park and some fabulous walks and wildlife.We walked into Peterborough which was about 75 mins each way but it was worth it to see the stunning cathedral. One concern was the amount of children recklessly riding their bikes at some speed and weaving around,my heart was in my mouth a couple of times when cars were coming on site, but I dont know what the answer is to that one! We had a lovely long weekend and would definitely return.
