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.

Graham water site

We visited this site 1-3 June ( 2 nights) This is a lovely site and very well cared for by the wardens ( only one couple on this site) who obviously work hard to keep everything spotlessly clean. It was the end of half term holiday week so there were plenty of children having great fun around the site. We enjoyed watching all the antics and games, but if you wanted peace and quiet this wasn't the time to come. There is a lovely dog walk on site which was thoroughly enjoyed by my dogs, who pee'd and poo'd on every log and leaf possible. The reason why I have gone into such personal detail is because the dog walk was also enjoyed by many of the children who used it as a den and sat on the logs and leaves etc! I find it hard to believe that parents ( who were aware) would allow their children to play in the dog walk. I don't think those same parents would like the dogs to use the grass play areas as their toilet. We are always being alerted by the media to the dangers of dog excrement, and although the dog walkers "picked up", it is very possible that little smears get left. The wee certainly stayed in place to be marked by other canine friends The site staff could not be around all the time to deter these games, but it may have helped to have signs telling children not to play in the walk, and to mention this to parents on booking the site. I'm not a spoilsport, but feel strongly about this matter. We had a lovely break here!

Pleasant Bank Holiday Weekend

We stayed on this site over the May bank holiday weekend when it was very busy and the weather was gorgeous. It’s a site we have visited a couple of times in the past year as its close to home and ideal for a couple of nights away. Generally it’s a relaxing and quiet site, great for families to spend some quality time together and with some wonderful trees and a pizza van that visits on a Friday evening! And of course the resident owl! He is beautiful and you get regular glimpses of him from the trees or fence around the pond. The Wardens, Dawn and Carl, are a lovely friendly and welcoming couple who work hard to keep the site tidy and the facilities spotlessly clean. The cubicles are large with plenty of room in the shower area and benches and hooks in the dressing area. Water hot though water pressure not too good. Compared to other sites we have stayed on the site itself feels a bit crowded and cramped. The hardstanding pitches and a bit shabby and the grassed areas seem to be cut randomly, ie some areas had obviously been cut (albeit not very short) and other areas totally missed and quite long. Whilst I appreciate if grass is kept longer it wears better but with the bank holiday followed by school half term holidays the site was very busy and maybe the grass should have had more attention. A couple of gripes (sorry), whilst we were there the site was busy, however there were cars totally ignoring the one way system, visitors double parking alongside the caravans they were visiting and children playing ball games (has the clubs no ball games near pitches been relaxed?) and running and cycling across pitches. We noticed that since our last visit the rubbish bins have been centralised near the wardens office. As far as we saw there are other bins on site. Grafham Water Lake is close by and excellent for walking or cycling. I would suggest that if you are only going for a couple of days you take plenty of supplies if you don’t want to bother supermarket shopping further afield. The Community Shop (about 10-15 mins walk away though convenient, had limited stock, much easier to take enough so as not to worry about shopping. We do love this site and will definitely be back again. Thanks Dawn and Carl.

Great for cycling!

We visit Grafham Water a lot as its convenient for us to do a two night weekend stay after a stressful week at work, this is what we did on this occasion, although we have stayed longer before. We find this site relaxing and quiet with some wonderful trees and a great pizza van that visits on a Friday evening! Its a lovely site and kept immaculate by the wardens. We have noticed some positive changes since our last stay. Love the idea of a flower meadow!! We visit this site often as we love to cycle. Grafham Water is brilliant for an off road cycle (about 9 miles around), the scenery is wonderful especially when the sun is out as it was for our weekend. Before now we have also cycled on the quiet roads to St Neots (A Sustrans route). And of course we can't forget the resident owl! He is beautiful and you get regular glimpses of him from the trees or fence around the pond. If you are quick you will also get great photos! We even picked up some tips for our Scottish Adventure tour (!) planned for next year from the friendly wardens! What more could you want from your weekend! Thank you - we will return soon! 😊
