Ease of arrival/welcome

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.

Just wonderful

I am now in my fourth week of staying here at the Missing Sock. We originally booked for a weekend, for a celebratory birthday meal with friends but found the site so convenient for myself that I have booked extra days and travel to work from here so that I can enjoy the area. Small by the standards of other CL's, the site is flat and has all the amenities you can wish for on a CL. Toilets are kept clean, pitch's are generous, easy access and gated for security. The pub its self is wonderful, as others have said quirky, slightly mad, and the surrounding are just as unusual. I thoroughly recommend having a meal there, just for the experience and the staff are really helpful and friendly. Throw away your inhibitions and join in on the laughter and fun.

Excellent addition to sites with electrics near Cambridge

Having eaten at the Missing Sock when visiting our son, we were delighted to find that they have now opened a CL site. A flat level site with electrics, good shower and toilet facilities and right next to a pub/restaurant. Good access to site and convenient for Cambridge/Newmarket. A quiet site and we were not disturbed by the proximity of the restaurant - which incidentally serves good food in rather eclectic surroundings, and you find the missing sock! We will be back.

Good spot for visiting Cambridge and we'll look forward to going back one day for a swim!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Missing Sock in July and found it a wonderful base from which to explore Cambridge. There is a Park and Ride not far away but we enjoyed using the wonderful cycle tracks in the area and reached Cambridge easily and safely in around 35 minutes. There are signposted cycle tracks everywhere and it's easy to 'park' your bike in the city, amongst thousands of others - so remember where you left yours! The restaurant itself wasn't open when were there, so we couldn't sample the food but all the staff we met were very friendly and helpful and made us welcome. We understand that this is a new CL and the owners are very keen to make it a success and to provide what club members need. They asked for suggestions and gratefully accepted ours for an additional and easily accessible tap from which to fill a motorhome. The dedicated toilet and shower is lovely and new and spacious. The site is gated and secure, nice and level with a funky patio/garden area by the restaurant and fields behind to explore. We saw some major digging works underway just over the fence and were told there'll be a swimming pool to look forward to in the not too distant future! There is a tiny bit of road noise in the day if you listen for it but we found it very peaceful overall and would definitely stay here again.
