Why stay here ...

Grafham Water Club Site is a peaceful, six acre oasis where you can relax and unwind. Located a mere 0.5 mile west of picturesque Grafham village in Huntingdon, the caravan park is ideal those who enjoy a slow wander in charming settings. It is also a short walk to Grafham Water, popular as an international centre for trout fishing, windsurfing and major sailing events. 

Boasting green, level pitches and a children's play area, Grafham Water Club Site also has at its centre a 350-year old cottage, once owned by the Oliver Cromwell family. Part of the moat that surrounded the estate still exists, providing an excellent haven for local wildlife, especially our family of ducks. For those who like some energetic fun, cycling, horse riding, tennis, golf and carting are just some of the activities near the caravan site to keep you entertained. For those interested in history, the nearby Imperial War Museum, Duxford Air Museum, is well worth a visit.

There is now a community run village shop in Grafham selling essentials and groceries.

4th visit to this site!

Grafham Water Caravan Club Site
We were going to arrive after 5pm, Julie called me to take payment and explain they were the only warden couple and the office closed at 5pm, they would leave my barrier key and pitch number along with the info of the site on a clip board outside the office. I thought this was a lovely touch. Arrived around 6.30, barrier key etc was where we were told it would be, we went to our pitch which was 33, a grass pitch by the pond and the dog walk, it was lovely along with an owl in the big tree next to the pond. The owl was seen many times during the day and night, The site was clean, tidy, lovely and quiet Mon-Thurs, as the weekend came it picked up with families arriving for the weekend, the small park for children had a swing missing and was particularly small. I would return to this site again as I love the walks around Grafham Water which is a mile to the left or right, the walk around the waters from the site is 9 mile circular walk(I ran it a few times) Bad points, only 2, 1. if your pitche is next to the bridge over the pond, expect kids to cycle or scoot over it and it be noisy and wake you up when the parents let them out (8am on a Saturday morning) yes I do have children and am happy with noise, but constant rumbling from the kids riding over the bridge was a bit annoying. 2. A very strong smell in the ladies toilets! Not sure if it was the drains, but wasn’t very nice. Other than those, I love this site and will be back in the summer 😊.

Pitch Perfect

Grafham Water Caravan Club Site
We had a lovely welcome from Julie and Andrew and, although it was our first visit, we were made to feel like old friends. The pitch in the 'Garden Area' was perfect with all facilities close by. The site is extremely well maintained and a credit to the wardens. The nightly visit of the Long Eared American Owl, which has been coming for over 20 years, was a highlight and certainly brought people together as a common topic and entertainment. Lovely fellow caravanners/Motor home members around our area - all very friendly. Only the presence of a unit with a continually yapping dog, whose irresponsible owners did nothing to check its behaviour, marred the visit. Grafham Water is very nearby with lovely walks. The Wheatsheaf pub, a few miles away, is worth a visit and did lovely meals. The road leading up to this site can be narrow in places - hence the instructions not to arrive early and clash with those departing. (Ignored by some!) We would certainly use this site again if we are in the area.

Fabulous weekend with a twist at the end.

Grafham Water Caravan Club Site
We have visited Grafham Water site many time and love the location, spotless facilities and the relatively small club site. Again, we were not disappointed with our visit a lovely two days meeting up with friends and the weather was kind to us once more. All went very smoothly until our day of departure. We have been caravanning for nearly 10 years and hope we have mastered all the set up and breakdown. We connected the caravan to the car, carried out all of the usual tests to see if the lights worked and the car raised up on the jockey wheel and off we set. Upon leaving the site and going over the speed humps the caravan disconnected from the car with a very loud bang the breakaway cable did its job, and we came to a standstill. All of a sudden, we were surrounded by fellow members and Andrew the warden appeared asking if we were all ok. Andrew took control of the situation asking fellow members to help with pushing the caravan to a safe place and assessing the damage, we realized we were not going anywhere as the electric connector, breakaway cable and jockey wheel needed to be replaced. We were booked into Stamford Site to meet up with more friends that same day and Julie (warden) contacted the site to explain what had happened and that we would be staying for another night at Grafham Water and not going to Stamford. We were extremely fortunate that there is a very good caravan dealer 20 miles down the road and we managed to buy the replacement items from them to enable us to travel home the following day. All we can say is a very big thank you to both Andrew and Julie for helping with our troublesome situation, they went above and beyond to help us, and nothing was any trouble at all.
