As good as it gets

Friendly reception and welcome, which, after a very wet and windy drive was very welcome. The pitches all seem to be level and the standard of cleanliness throughout the site was exemplary. Initially I had a bit of a fight with the water and frankly I do not know why the club doesn’t standardise on the tap fittings throughout their sites, but with an additional attachment all was perfect. We were lucky because the relief managers who were on duty during our stay had also been motor-homers and when we asked about getting down to the waterside they suggested we drove round to the Mander Visitor carpark which is right at the water’s edge, so we did just that and had some very enjoyable walks etc. from there. There are no height barriers. Would we go again? Yes definitely, it is a fairly peaceful site (especially out of school holidays!) and well positioned for this lovely reservoir. We wanted to thank the wardens before we left but were unable to find them as they were out on cleaning duties etc. so I hope this review reaches them.

Lovely, peaceful site.

This was our 3rd visit here, 13-09-20 for 6 nights. As always very quiet, peaceful site. Disappointed to have to pay full price for no facilities due to a broken boiler, we understood no hot water for showers but didn’t understand why the toilets could not have been available, people could still wash their hands with soap and cold water! The club should’ve either given a discount or even offered club vouchers by way of a gesture, at least these vouchers could go towards another booking maybe! Also no use of bins at the service points due to wardens not being able to collect rubbish due to a broken tractor but had to take rubbish to main bins near reception, whilst this wasn’t a problem we felt the wardens could’ve easily still emptied the bins by using a wheelbarrow giving them something to do as obviously no cleaning of the facilities was needed! The walking and cycling around the reservoir is lovely. We still love this site and will return again but please CMC let the wardens have a mended tractor and boiler as we understand both have been broken for quite some time!!

Perfect for walkers and cyclists

this site is very near Graffam water with all its leisure facilities,so if you like walking and cycling this is the site for you . My only complaint no toilet or shower facilities for 2020. the club should have reduced the nightly pitch fees, plus their tractor was broken surely there is a repair facilitey in the area. apart from this complaint its a site we will return to again as its so peaceful

Peaceful

A great site and easily accessible from the A14 and so very quiet. No traffic noise but take your ear plugs in case the owls keep you awake. The area is great for walking, water sports and cycling and also easy access to visit places like Cambridge, Ely and the Fens. The site is very well managed by friendly, helpful staff who never seem to stop working 24:7. The facility block was closed during our stay, which we knew when booking, and even managed to change to a service pitch a few days before arrival. This was our first break in Cambridgeshire and it has whetted our appetite to return.

Our second stay here.

This was our second stay at this site, last stay was about a year ago when we first brought a caravan. Everything was as I remembered from our last stay. We think it’s a lovely quiet site. Wardens were very friendly. All areas were tidy. Only difference from last year was that the facilities were closed, but that’s not a problem as we usually use our on board facilities. In my own opinion it would be helpful if the prices were reduced due to the facilities being closed, but I guess the whole site still needs money for maintenance. So I guess there’ll be no price reductions at any club site. So overall it’s a nice friendly site and we’ll return again.

Ditto all previous reviews regarding lack of facilities. Hopefully everything will be repaired or replaced when the site is closed and be up to full speed for the 2021 season. Nice area to visit. Great bacon Sanni at the exhibition centre by the Water.

A pleasant location.

This was our second visit to this site, the previous being 3 years ago. Everything looked to be the same but upon reading the previous reviews it seems that the toilet/shower block was out of action. I cannot comment as we used our own on-board facilities throughout our 2 night stay. That was our choice but if the facilities are still out of action as appears to be the case in August I totally agree that fees should be reduced accordingly. The arrangements for waste disposal were still centralised at reception and notices still displayed that this was due to the tractor being broken. The wardens informed me that they had just moved up from Looe in Cornwall last week and so perhaps the change of wardens is bringing about change. The warden did cut the grass on a motorised mower so perhaps this has just been rectified. Prospective visitors would do well to check the current situation. The site is very quiet in a pleasant location and was ideal for us to break our journey from the south coast to the north east being only 4 miles from the A1. It is within easy driving distance of Cambridge with its attractions and during our last stay we visited The Shuttleworth Collection of antique aircraft a few miles to the south, near Biggleswade, which for me was a must, but perhaps not open during the current pandemic.

Lovely quiet site

Got back a few days ago from the site. Lovely site close to Graffham Water which was ideal for cycling and walking. Nice quiet village with a community shop and pub. Disappointed that the toilet facilities weren't open yet still charged as if they were.

Very Peaceful location

Our second post lockdown trip, it unfortunately had to be cut short due to the very strong winds on what should have been the first day, and despite the rain we had a very pleasant and relaxing stay

Great for cyclists

Just back from a lovely 3 night stay here (our 2nd visit) and felt it was even better than remembered. No facilities due to a boiler problem, but frankly that just made us feel safer in this COVID 19 era! Staff were very efficient and not intrusive (no 8 a.m lawn mowing). The cycling here is brilliant, we cycled around Grafham Water (9.6 miles in total) quite challenging in places but well worth the effort. The visitor centre and the fishing lodge were open for drinks and snacks. Small village shop nearby and we used that to replenish T bags. Nice church with book sale in entrance is just down the lane from the club. Very pretty area and well kept site, we loved it.
