change of rubbish disposal

a bit dissapointed on my last visit as there are no dustbins on the service points and all the rubbish has to be taken to two large skips in the centre. i was on the hard standing side of the club site. on previous visits each service areas had dustbins. other than that a good site with a small walk to the park and lakes.

Very good stay, excellent location and very helpful staff

My wife and I stayed here for a few days and enjoyed it so much we came back the following weekend with out grandchildren. The site is a great location for the Ferry Meadows country park which has a lot of walks, riding, nature and food stops. Also the paths are reasonably surfaced and stand up well to the very wet weather we have had recently. Also convienient to the site are several longer rides by Sustrans and the Peterborough Green Wheel (though it you do this avoid the route that comes through Peterborough centre and take a more Easterly route). There is also a very nice garden centre within walking distance and of course the Nene Valley railway. The site itself if very nice with the option to go on the Eastern side if you want to be near the play area or the Western side if you would prefer a somewhat quieter stay. Our grandchildren really loved the play area here, even more than the ones in Ferry Meadows country park. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We will certainly be returning again in the not too distant future

Another Return Visit

Over the years we have visited Ferry Meadows quite a lot as it's only 50 from where we live. It would be a good stopover site for anyone travelling down the A1 which is only about 3 miles away. We find there is enough to amuse ourselves with in the immediate vicinity of the site and the Country Park not to need to travel further afield on a short stay. The Park has miles of walkways/cycleways. There is a nice shop and cafe as you enter the Park. In the other direction you have access to the Nene Valley Railway from the Overton Station. A little further on is the Notcutts Garden Centre and next to that a Beefeater pub/restaurant. There is also a Golf Course. We were last here in 2022 and there have been quite a few positive changes. Should add only the West Site was open during our stay. As motorhomers it was good to see, at long last, a nice open grill waste water point. As with some other sites Ferry Meadows now has a single rubbish collection point. Staff at reception were very friendly and it was good to see a reasonable selection of essentials for sale. I noticed there are now some serviced pitches. Pitching instructions have been changed again! This time I think they have got it right. Still two pegs but wider apart so you have more choice on how you pitch. Car, Caravan, Awning or Caravan, Awning, Car is now an option. For us motorhomers we no longer have half the pitch wasted on the off side of the van so from my point of view a worthwhile and sensible change. I did try the free WiFi which seemed to work quite well but I didn't try the premium service as I tend to tether my phone on 4G which seemed to work quite well on this site. The site has a Co-Ax TV connection on the electric bollards not perfect but better than nothing, not quite sure why the TV signal is so poor here, its hardly mountainous! Finally there are several food vendors on different days of the week, not sure what sort of season they cover.

Superb site in an outstanding location

Superb site in an outstanding location. We usually go to Ferry Meadows two or three times a year and there is always something new to see in the country park walking round the lakes or along the river. I've given four stars for facilities as the TV booster system has extremely bad reception. Agreed it's better than the vans aerial but it isn't very good. The new free WiFi system is terrific, well done for that. Just improve the TV booster system and it's 5 stars all the way.

Excellent again but...

Great site in a fantastic location with hard working wardens. Could do with serviced pitches on this large 2 area site and hope the WiFi is up to coping with demand when it is updated. Our experience with the new WiFi at Broadway was disappointing!

Fantastic wardens at last

Our last weekend at ferry meadows for the winter roll on next year. The wardens this year have been fantastic after last years wardens, we were unsure of going back as the wardens were up their own backsides and not at all friendly.. What a turn around this year happy wardens friendly can have a laugh and a joke nothing to much trouble really great Always working their socks off clean site and happy site. Thank you for an enjoyable year see you in 2024

AT LAST FRIENDLY WARDENS

We haven't been to Ferry Meadows for a year now , for one reason only, We had a very bad experience with the horrible wardens, Thankfully they have gone now . What a difference to the new wardens They are all hard working , they stop and speak to you ,they walk around the site , not sit on there bottoms driving around on the tractor so all you lovely people who have said they wont go back give it another try . We stayed there for a week three ago with our eight dogs and it was so relaxing we our going to book another week soon

Excellent site - so much to see and do

This is an excellent site for its location, convenience to Peterborough, and access to the facilities at Ferry Meadows. A good level site, with a traditional style amenities block - a little old, but very well cared for - but struggling with TV and WiFi availability across the site. Why should we be dominated by the TV? A lovely place to chill in a peaceful "rural" retreat just a couple of miles from a busy city. The site has so much to offer families with the Ferry Meadows park just outside the site, a trip on the Nene Valley railway, paths to walk, cycle ways, etc., and then the whole of the East Midlands to explore. For those without youngsters to entertain, there are the walks around Ferry Meadows with all the nature to observe, and many places to eat and socialise within very easy reach. If gardening is your thing, then an excellent garden centre within walking distance. Otherwise just a space to sit out and take in the fresh air. Access is so easy. What's not to like about the site? This is the second time I have been, and though much busier this time, it never seemed to be crowded, etc., though it was one of the finest weekends weather wise this September. The site staff work hard to keep the site clean and cared for. If you've not been to this area of England, I fully encourage you to bring your outfit to Ferry Meadows and enjoy visiting and exploring.

Good week spoiled by late comers

We stayed here last week and up until our second to last day, everything was ok. A family of 6+ were allowed on the site next to us at 8:30pm to set up their caravan. The cut-off should be 8pm. As it was dark, they had two cars running pointing the lights at their caravan/awning. The engines were noisy, so the occupants were shouting to hear one another. Our two-year-old couldn't settle which ruined the night for us. I went to the office to complain at 8:50pm and of course, it was closed. The noise started to die down (engines off) at about 9:20pm, but it wasn't until 10:30pm that they'd finished setting up and the excess noise finally ended. With a little one on board, this completely ruined the week for us. With this being an official club site, I would have expected them to stick to the rules. Needless to say, we won't be returning.

First Visit - will most definitely go back.

As CAMC members it was less than £100 for 3 adults for a 2 night stay. Booking was easy via the CAMC app and on arrival you’re directed into lanes on arrival (not before 1pm). Within just 10 minutes wait our booking was confirmed, we were given a map and directed to where we could pitch. There are 2 sites either side of Ham Road and we were directed to the second site where we had opted for a grass pitch with EHU. After choosing our pitch it was a quick walk back to the main site to give our pitch number and collect our barrier pass. The pitch itself was a generous size with ample room between neighbours and with our car, caravan and awning. The EHU point for our pitch was some distance but thankfully we had a long cable, there were ample fresh water points with waste water disposal and chemical points, normally close to rubbish and recycling points. The site was very clean, the toilet/shower facilities although a bit dated were very clean, I had noticed there were disabled toilets and showers I just felt that the door code was a bit high up for someone in a wheelchair. There was external washing up point, a laundry room and baby toddler wash rooms. It is a nice and peaceful site and even with the playground close to our pitch it wasn’t and issue. I noticed Dogs were permitted on this site but requested for them to be kept on a lead and there was also a dog toileting fenced off area. During our stay we saw wardens frequently emptying bins and picking litter, they always said hello and the staff I spoke to were always pleasant and happy. On the Friday night there was a food stall in the entrance selling loaded fries, we didn’t try that but the following day was a a Pizza van - cannot resist a pizza and was reasonably priced and rather tasty. This site is located literally 5 minutes walk from the Nene Valley Ferry Meadows lakes with the river Nene flowing through it. There is a cafe, restaurant and visitor/gift shop and toilets located there, a miniature railway and for anyone interested in photography a variety of wildlife from Otters, Kingfishers and other wildlife. A nice walk around the lakes generally all accessible for wheelchairs / scooters. For photos - visit by Google Maps review https://maps.app.goo.gl/MBa8cP12RTy578MZ6?g_st=ic
