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.

Not The Best

On arrival at the site it is immediately apparent how closed in (no chance of reversing our twin axle onto the pitch) and unkempt it is. At present, a number of hard standings are being re-gravelled. We were not informed of this on arrival and immediately after pitching work began on the pitch next to us. The noise was awful and because we were down wind the dust from the gravel covered the interior of the van and we could actually taste it! Not sure why this work has to be done in peak season. The first night our van was invaded by flies that could get through the fly blinds. The next day we found out that this is a site wide problem at the moment. Again we were not informed on arrival. The advice is to sit in the dark or close all windows and doors as it gets dark. The bins have been removed from the service point so a trip to the entrance is required every time you need to put the rubbish out. The service point itself is rotting away by the looks of it. So all in all I have to say that this site is not the best site in the club. No disrespect to the wardens who can only work with what they have.

Great for cycling

Stay here for four nights 18th July 2018. The site facilities were very clean and tidy. Yes the pitches look a bit tired but the hard working wardens were in the process of distributing two lorry loads of new stone to pitches during our stay. The site is perfect for walking and cycling being quite flat. This is one site where I did not encounter hordes of barking dogs! very peaceful. This was my first visit to this site but I will definitely come back

Peaceful site

Having booked the site and then read the reviews we were a bit concerned as to what we would find - we should not have worried. We received a warm welcome and given a choice of pitches, not much choice but the site was busy. We were next to the exit barrier but that did not cause any problems, we had a lovely patch of grass to the side and back of the pitch where we could get sun or shade whatever we wanted. The shower block was spotless and the other facilities clean and tidy. Our only negative point was that a couple opposite had visitors and the children were a bit noisy, I have grandchildren so normally children do not bother us, this was not the fault of the staff and at least they left at 8pm and peace was resumed. We would certainly go again.

No apologies for yet another review on this site!

Yet another wonderful weekend away staying at this site following a stressful week at work! The two wardens work tirelessly to ensure that everyone is looked after, that the site is kept clean and they have already made some excellent improvements. We arrived late due to traffic however the office was still open and we were met with a very friendly and cheery wardens after what must have been a very long day for them. We love the quietness of the site, no strimming and tractors emptying bins here not even on a Sunday, but wheel barrows carrying garden waste from cutting, areas of, what will be wild meadow, and a central recycling and waste area where everyone puts their waste. We do not agree with some of the reviews here relating to 'shabby' and 'tired' and totally agree with the last reviewer that you should take the time out of your day to understand and talk to to the wardens who are very happy to explain their plan for the site. The weather was extremely hot for our weekend but we still managed a few cycles around Grafham Water (approximately 9 miles around) and returned to sit in 'dapple shade' provided by some of the wonderful trees on site. We also saw the Strawberry moon, and the magnificent resident owl! One of our favourite sites to visit all year around. Needless to say 'we will be back'...................! Thank you - The Smiths!
