Why stay here ...

The beautifully presented Fields End Water Caravan Park and Fishery is open all year for enthusiastic anglers who will find fishing for all levels; ramblers will enjoy the flat, expansive Fenland countryside and those who just want to sit back and relax can do so in beautiful and natural surroundings. The park has an adult only policy and is away from any major roads or flight paths, enabling you to enjoy total peace and tranquillity.

Fields End Water Caravan Park and Fishery is extremely dog friendly, with on-site walks around the fishing lakes and the 5 acre wood. Facilities on site include two fishing lakes, a full size boule court, book exchange library and Wi-Fi access. The on-site shop is open every day (in season) and sells everyday essentials such as bread, milk, papers and eggs, bacon sandwiches, plus fishing tackle and bait. The site makes an ideal base to explore the region and the many local attractions, including the historic market towns of Wisbech and March, spectacular Ely Cathedral, various farmers markets and many National Trust sites. Bird watchers will be spoilt for choice with three RSPB reserves in Cambridgeshire.

This family run caravan park offers exceptional caravanning and course fishing in the unique and historic Fens for an unforgettable holiday experience. So if you are looking for a quiet and peaceful caravan park with very large pitches and a great base to explore Cambridgeshire and East Anglia, then look no further.

OK but wouldn’t return

Stayed for a week on Pitch 4 which was near to the facilities block. This area was the only one which was full (6 vans) and needs some attention. The pitch had puddles of standing water and never dried out (possibly poor drainage??), consequently it was muddy even though it was hardstanding. There are several potholes that need sorting out as well. Other areas seemed better. Some nice places in the area, Ely, Cambridge and St Ives, but all are a fair drive away. Nothing within walking distance. The new lake and pods which are on the website are still a building site, supposed to opening at Easter but I can’t see that happening. From the pitch we were on there was no view at all, being disabled I could not even get up the steps to the fishing lake - hubby went and took a picture for me. It was peaceful until every morning at first light when hundreds of birds descended on the pitch next door where they had put up no less than 7 bird feeders on a stand and in the trees!! Consequently it was a right racket waking us up every day. This shouldn’t be allowed. Give me Eye Kettleby any day, it might be more expensive but it’s way in front.

Quiet definitely, good not

Just visited here this new year, and not impressed it's ok if you like fishing but that's about it, it's in the middle of nowhere, unfriendly, not a well kept site, i.e. Bins full inc dog bins, no lights around the one bin ! Waste water drain full of leaves and mud ! Dog mess even on gravel pitches! Lovely shower block, no dog walks, but that's it just been honest . Won't be returning !

Excellent site

Visited here a couple of weeks ago and can't fault the site. The toilet /shower facilities were extremely clean and warm considering the time of year. The pitches all seemed to be on fairly even ground may need just a slight adjustment to get perfectly level. The shop at this time of the year doesn't hold many supplies no milk / bread etc when we were there though they do during the season. The Village is a short distance away (under a mile) but not really accessible from the road as no footpath, not sure if there is a 'public footpath' that we didn't see. Went for the fishing and the lakes are lovely only fished 'The Pit' but nicely laid out and had a couple of nice roach. Will definitely be going back there next year.

Great site

Our Annual Holiday Destination

We have visited this site every year for the last 5 years as we rate it so highly. The pitches are either hard standing or grass (with astro turf for the awning) and are a good size. The toilets/showers are immaculate and within easy reach of all pitches, although they do close from 1030:-11:30 for cleaning. The laundry is reasonably priced at £3.50 to wash a large load, we don’t know how much the drier is as we’ve never used it. The site is kept very clean and tidy (although there is the occasional dog mess from irresponsible owners not cleaning up after their dog) with the grass mown regularly. Plenty of dog waste bins around the site with an off lead area to let the fur babies run free. Fishing is reasonably priced and there is a good selection of baits and accessories in the on site shop. The staff are very friendly and helpful and make booking in a pleasant and welcoming experience. There is a very pleasant walk across the fields into Doddington with a couple of decent pubs with a good selection of real ales and other beverages. The towns of March and Chatteris are within easy reach and the City of Ely is a relatively short drive. We have never seen the dogs so chilled whether on the bank while we fish, running around in the off lead area or out for walks, or just relaxing in/out of the caravan. There is a cafe adjacent to one of the lakes serving a good selection of hot and cold food/drinks at reasonable prices, available to eat in the seating area or take away. The reception closes from 11:00-12:00 so you must return your barrier card before 11:00 on check out day, the card is not required to exit the site.
