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.

Lovely peaceful site

This site is beautifully kept and very peaceful. Pitches are flat. The shower/toilet facilities are spotless. It is a short drive from Grafham Water (or you could walk) and not too far from Huntingdon (15 mins) if you fancy a bit of retail therapy or there's Cambridge for a nice day out (40 mins) We stayed for 3 nights and had a very relaxing break. There is a lovely dog walk with access from the site too. I would highly recommend this place if you want peace and quiet with nearby attractions.

Lovely Easter break in a perfect location

This was our first visit to this site and we have nothing but praise for our stay. The site was easy to find, just followed the sat nav instructions which took us straight to the site in the village of Grafham. We went to the site office to book in which also doubles up as a shop, we were met by the 2 friendly and helpful site wardens. We were given a map and told which plots had already been taken we were then free to go and choose the pitch we wanted, ours was a hard standing pitch with electric hook up, you can also have grass standing and serviced pitches. There was plenty of room to put our car, caravan and awning in a very sunny location (we did have glorious weather!), peaceful roomy site with trees surrounding the site and plenty of birds, we were thrilled to encounter a long eared owl enjoying a dust bath! We returned to the office to let them know our site number. The site is within easy reach of Grafham Water, you can walk to the waters edge, cycle or go by car, also several National Trust places close by and different pubs and restaurants. We had Sunday lunch at The Snooty Tavern, the food was very good as was the atmosphere and staff. The site itself has a small shop but you can also go into the village to the community shop and community pub. The toilet block at the site was excellent, the ladies had several toilets, several showers which were exceptionally clean and which worked well with plenty of room to undress and store your clothes etc while showering. There were 2 hair dryers which although I have thick hair dried it very well, the block was well lit and well heated. There is a small play area for the children and although we didn’t have children we had a lot of fun watching the children cycle round the site, good surfaces for bikes and very safe, good lighting at night as well. Good recycling facilities and water points. We had a lovely time and wish to thank the wardens for doing such a great job, we look forward to returning.

Lovely little site

Nice warm greeting from the wardens. Found a nice flat pitch around the edge. Stayed for two nights and it was very peaceful. Nice walk into the village which has published and a community shop, carried on to Grafham Water which has a cafe,museum and bike hire. The bathroom facilities were a little tired but in perfect working order and very clean. Did trips out to St Neots and Duxford Airfield.

Lovely Site

This a lovely site. We stayed here for 2 nights as we wanted to cycle around Grafham Reservoir. Excellent facilities, very peaceful location and everyone was so friendly. Also we had the privilege of a visit from the resident owl and the surprise of pizza night, which was very tasty. Thank you to the wardens for making this site so special.

Great Site

Lovely site, toilets kept clean. Wardens were really pleasant and nothing was to much trouble, When we first arrived there were only about 10 caravans on the site but at the weekend it seemed to fill up a bit more. There was a sense of peace and tranqulity all the time we were there. Grafham Water is within walking distance and is amazing. Lots of lovely walks. About 35 minutes from Cambridge which made a lovely day out. Would definately return. Thank you to the wardens for making us feel welcome
