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.
