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.

The Club has taken the decision to close the swimming pool at Grafham Water Club site with immediate effect. We apologise for any inconvenience. The site still offers great facilities for energetic families, with Tourer Explorer activities, and a play area onsite. If you still need your water fix, Grafham Water is only 400m away from the site, and there are three family-friendly swimming pools within 10 miles of the site.

Three nights with our grandaughter

Stayed here for three nights. This was our first caravanning trip with our six year old grandaughter and the friendly warden made her welcome and gave her the Tourer Explorer booklet, a badge and told us all about the resident owl (sadly we didn't see him). The playground, although small, provided enough to do whilst on site and we also had fun playing the giant Connect 4 game. Although there was no hot water on site during our visit we had been made aware of this and the facilities were kept very clean. All contact with the wardens, including answering questions from our grandaughter about what had happened to the boiler, was friendly and helpful. I loved the flower displays around reception and we had a lovely grass pitch, number 59 with plenty space. I did think other pitches were a bit closer together than on other sites we've been to.

Two night stay

Stopped for a short visit while returning from the North, having stayed here previously. Site kept immaculate by the two friendly wardens, who greeted us warmly. Our pitch had an electrical fault, and this was immediately sorted by the wardens - apparently that side of the site had been closed for some tree work, and we were the first people to have used the pitch since. Some swapping of leads with other bollards quickly had the issue sorted - many thanks. Plenty of activities on Grafham Water, and St Neots is worth a look. Cambridge and the War Museum at Duxford are within striking distance. We did not see the Great Grey Owl this time - hopefully the tree work has not disturbed him too much. Recommended

Quiet and Relaxing

Originally booked this site as a means to break up our journey home. Turns out that this was the one of the nicest sites we stayed at. Easy to get to, relatively small, lovely welcome, great location, peaceful and relaxing. Easy access to Grafham Water and its circular cycle / walking trail. Plenty of places en route to stop and rest by the water. The site has its resident ducks, moorhens, and even its own owl. Facilities are clean and bright. Pitch sizes are really good, no-one is too close. Will definitely visit again, next time it will be for a longer stay.

24Hrs in A & E

This was our third stay at Grafham Water. The wardens are professional but very helpful and friendly. Booking in was nice and smooth also we was able to extend our stay. Good amount of pitches too choose from, so we went for a grass pitch next to some trees which gave the dogs some shade. The resident owl is magnificent and has a wonderfully deep twit twoo. There are lots of walks to do. The disability bathroom was very clean and tidy but really does need some nonslip flooring as it’s quite dangerous when wet and bares no reflection on the wardens. Unfortunately I became quite unwell whilst staying at Grafham Water and needed an ambulance. I’d like to the thank the wardens for their assistance, concern, helpfulness and understanding it really did make the world of difference to a very stressful situation for my husband(Me, I can’t remember a thing). I’d also like to thank the members in the Motorhomes that where pitched around us for there help and concern. Looking forward to our next stay.

Wet week at Grafham Water

Greeted by 2 very friendly wardens got booked in very quickly and everything explained to us we were staying a week so had a choice of hard standing pitch which was great considering the weather. The site is well maintained and spotless facility’s although a little dated, considering there are only 2 wardens on this site that’s an achievement in itself. We saw the resident owl and lots of wildlife. The weather was windy and wet but there is lots to do around the area and the hut with the information in was very helpful. The pitches are closer together than other caravan club sites but you still felt you had privacy around your pitch. All in all we had a good week and would recommend the site if you want peace and quiet.
