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.

Lovely, peaceful site.

This was our 3rd visit here, 13-09-20 for 6 nights. As always very quiet, peaceful site. Disappointed to have to pay full price for no facilities due to a broken boiler, we understood no hot water for showers but didn’t understand why the toilets could not have been available, people could still wash their hands with soap and cold water! The club should’ve either given a discount or even offered club vouchers by way of a gesture, at least these vouchers could go towards another booking maybe! Also no use of bins at the service points due to wardens not being able to collect rubbish due to a broken tractor but had to take rubbish to main bins near reception, whilst this wasn’t a problem we felt the wardens could’ve easily still emptied the bins by using a wheelbarrow giving them something to do as obviously no cleaning of the facilities was needed! The walking and cycling around the reservoir is lovely. We still love this site and will return again but please CMC let the wardens have a mended tractor and boiler as we understand both have been broken for quite some time!!

Perfect for walkers and cyclists

this site is very near Graffam water with all its leisure facilities,so if you like walking and cycling this is the site for you . My only complaint no toilet or shower facilities for 2020. the club should have reduced the nightly pitch fees, plus their tractor was broken surely there is a repair facilitey in the area. apart from this complaint its a site we will return to again as its so peaceful

Peaceful

A great site and easily accessible from the A14 and so very quiet. No traffic noise but take your ear plugs in case the owls keep you awake. The area is great for walking, water sports and cycling and also easy access to visit places like Cambridge, Ely and the Fens. The site is very well managed by friendly, helpful staff who never seem to stop working 24:7. The facility block was closed during our stay, which we knew when booking, and even managed to change to a service pitch a few days before arrival. This was our first break in Cambridgeshire and it has whetted our appetite to return.

Our second stay here.

This was our second stay at this site, last stay was about a year ago when we first brought a caravan. Everything was as I remembered from our last stay. We think it’s a lovely quiet site. Wardens were very friendly. All areas were tidy. Only difference from last year was that the facilities were closed, but that’s not a problem as we usually use our on board facilities. In my own opinion it would be helpful if the prices were reduced due to the facilities being closed, but I guess the whole site still needs money for maintenance. So I guess there’ll be no price reductions at any club site. So overall it’s a nice friendly site and we’ll return again.

Quiet relaxing location

Ditto all previous reviews regarding lack of facilities. Hopefully everything will be repaired or replaced when the site is closed and be up to full speed for the 2021 season. Nice area to visit. Great bacon Sanni at the exhibition centre by the Water.
