Noisy party venue - not a quiet site

Do not stay here when there is a party on at the venue unless you are going. We didnt know there was a party on the Saturday until we arrived and although the music was turned down at 1am, the party went on inside and outside next to the CL field until 3am. The owner did appologise and gave us a discount but the site not good either. Each pitch is only a caravan and car or motorhome and awning wide with no safety gap between. The facilities are basic and run down and there is constant road noise. Although its on a bus route to Cambridge, the nearest stop is at least half a mile away. We chose the site because others nearer Cambridge were full but we will not return, even if there isnt a party on, this would not be up to usual club standards.

Convenient for Cambridge

Stayed for 2 nights. Great host and the facilities are tired but clean. 6 miles on cycle route 51 to Cambridge and 10 minutes from public transport. As previously stated the pub is an 'events only' pub so I imagine it would be noisy if there was an event on when you stayed.

Noisy & Small site

I booked the site a week ahead & arrived on a Saturday to find out that there was a wedding reception on that night, which was not mentioned when the booking was taken. This was held in the outside area of the quirky Missing Sock, with a karaoke & DJ in the static double decker bus in the CL site! The site is just off the main A14 so there is constant 'white noise' of vehicles day & night. The plot is not a pretty one and is very tight to get in and out of, especially when you have a double axel unit. The spaces themselves are also small & the site full of weeds & prickly nettles. The toilet & shower are ok. The wifi didn't work - luckily I had a 4g signal. There are 2 pubs in the village of Stow-cum-Quy which was a 10 minute walk away. The sanitary disposal point would not flush away and was close of over flowing. The karaoke & disco didn't end until 12.30am - at no point was I offered a refund for the noise. Sadly not a return visit for us.

Worst site we've been on

We spent 3 nights here and they were not very nice. Space is so tight we didn't have room to put our awning up as there were 3 vans including ours and 7 yes 7 camper vans so 10 in total on a 5 pitch site. Location is very good just a shame it felt very cramped and very noisey as the 7 campers were all together.

Our Stay

It`s a shame that the 2 people that make this venue what it is are leaving for good next month (Oct) for pastures new. We have had the most pleasant time during our stay, but must point out that the Bar/Restaurant is not open any more. Would we return, probably not as the owner is planning a lot of changes over the winter, which may well effect the experience.

Quirky but very pleasant.

We have just had 4 nights at The Missing Sock, on arrival not sure about the place, but once we were settled and had a look round, we loved the place. Chris' and Sandra made us very welcome, and were friendly. We will certainly go there again.

Will book again, very friendly

Stayed here for a couple of nights whilst visiting family who live in Bottisham.  We were made to feel very welcome by Chris and Sandra.  The bar/restaurant is under refurbishment, so wasn't open during our stay.  We were invited around for a chat and a bite to eat.  Facilities are adequate. Only one fresh water tap, but sufficient for 5 pitches.  The shower/loo has a sink, power shower and a loo. I feel the addition of a hand dryer was needed.  The restaurant is really quirky, but adds to the interest.  Plenty of play equipment for the kids.  We will be returning here again in the summer months.  Dogs are allowed in bar on a lead, as long as you let staff know you're bringing your dog in.

The Missing Sock. A great stay

Me and my partner have just returned from our three night stay at the Missing Sock. We booked two nights originally and then returned for a third night . I have never written a review before but really needed to say how much we enjoyed our stay. The field with the pitches is quite small but was fine for us in our 5.5 metre campervan. All pitches have electric. On arrival on the Sunday night we were met by the owner and shown around. We got a great pitch in the far corner of the site looking out over open fields. There was only one other campervan which left the following morning leaving us the only people on site. On Sunday night there was a small wedding party at the pub but that didn't bother us at all. The pub is only open Wed to Sunday. We had a couple of drinks on the Sunday night and enjoyed the very friendly atmosphere. There is a nearby bus stop outside a farm shop about a mile up the road and a park and ride a little further. We walked to the bus stop and caught the no 12 into Cambridge which took around 10 minutes. The busses run around every 20 minutes. I believe the no 10 11 and 12 busses will take you into Cambridge from the farm shop bus stop. ( Directions..come out of the Missing Sock and turn right on the main road, for approx 1 mile. You will have to cross over to the other side of the road for the farm shop bus stop) All in a fantastic stay. Very Very handy for Cambridge. What more could I add. Very clean modern shower room and toilet, What more do you need. We returned for another night. and we would gladly stay again.

The worst weekend break I have ever had.

On arrival we were told to park as far up the field as possible as they had an evening wedding party on that Saturday and it would be loud. The field is tiny so parking away from the noise was impossible, just enough room for caravan and awning between the half tyres they have to mark the spaces. When we booked this site over the phone there was no mention of the wedding party. The constant noise from the A14 was very bad. Toilets very basic just glad we have everything we need in our caravan. All in all would never stay hear again!

Chaotic and unorganised, but has potential

The site itself is small, behind a pub restaurant that is only open at weekends. There is a new toilet/shower with plentiful hot water. Walking distance to Stow-cum-Quy and a lovely pub. Also potentially walk able to Anglesey Abbey. There is a lovely childrens play area and outside area for the pub. Park and ride into Cambridge close by, plus the number 10 bus from Stow-cum-Quy. Road noise from the distant A14 rumbles in the background. The only problem was the disorganisation. I understand that the owner was away on holiday, so that did not help. However, there was no one to book us in, staff not around most of the time, and no one checking bookings. More and more caravans turning up and no spaces, so no idea what has happened. Real shame especially for people who have paid a deposit and booked months ago. Seven outfits on site so far, and more arriving. Needs better booking system and someone to take charge if the owner is away as the site has excellent potential if run properly as a CL.
