Why stay here ...

Ideally located in a beautiful open country park, Ferry Meadows Club Campsite offers a perfect holiday destination for the whole family - there is an excellent 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 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. 

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 one or two nights.

Ferry Meadows Club Campsite
Visited in July 2022. Excellent quick check check in system despite there being a large numbers of arrivals. Just give your name and membership card to either of the 2 wardens others were in attendance directing you. and off you go to get sited. Return at your leisure to pay/checkin and retrieve you card. Great location for nature lovers. Nearby park well worth a look.

Very Good for very large Motorhomes

Ferry Meadows Club Campsite
Having a very large American Winnebago motorhome can prove challenging when looking for suitable pitches. called ahead and a very good space was reseved, arrival nice and simple, park up nice and simple, lovely site with trees and layout makes it very country feel. Few times i needed staff help, always friendly and helpful, will definately use again on my Winnebago Travels.

Uncooperative staff

Ferry Meadows Club Campsite
We arrived on Friday 29th July 2022 for a weekend stay that we had planned together with my sister and her family. We travelled separately to the site, and we arrived mid-afternoon. Unfortunately, my sister was delayed on her journey due to a traffic accident and diversion. We advised the campsite reception staff of this upon arrival and asked for an adjacent pitch to be reserved for them. We made this request because my sister's adult daughter has special needs and suffers anxiety when placed in an unfamiliar situation. This would be far less likely to occur if our two motorhomes were pitched side by side. The staff refused this request, despite my sister having made a booking and being en route to the site. The site was far from being at full capacity and we found several suitable locations where adjacent pitches were available. We subsequently set up and placed a table and chairs on the adjacent pitch, awaiting arrival of my sister's motorhome within the next hour. There was no issue with this until these were spotted by a staff member driving past on an ATV. He rudely insisted that the table and chairs were removed and would not entertain any discussion, simply repeating that "rules is rules" (sic). My sister actually arrived 10 minutes later and came through to the adjacent pitch which was unsurprisingly still available, as were the others around us. There were no new arrivals after my sister which the staff would clearly have known. It was not a pleasant experience and confrontational for no apparent reason.This uncooperative and unhelpful treatment by the site staff spoiled our holiday and we will not be returning. This is the second poor experience that we have had with CAMC and we will not be using them again.

Shame about the welcome

Ferry Meadows Club Campsite
The site is great for families with play area and proximity to the Ferry Meadows country park. Shame about the welcome. We arrived at 12:50 and yes the arrival time was 1pm but we were somewhat surprised to be turned away at the barrier to drive around for a few minutes before being allowed in at 1pm. We would expect to have at least been allowed to park in arrivals lane even if we couldn't check in for a few minute. Welcome apart the site is in a great location and well maintained. The toilet blocks could do with a refurbishment but were clean.

Disappointed that there was no longer a food shop at reception

Ferry Meadows Club Campsite
We have been coming to this site for years but were very disappointed that there is no food shop on the site any more. It used to be one of the better ones on the circuit and it would help even if it just stocked milk, as there is a 20-minute walk to the nearest Tesco and we try not to use the car. It is one of our favourite sites, as there are so many walks. The aerial connections on the bollard near pitch 161 were not working last year and are still out of order.
