This was our first visit to the site and we were not disappointed. The site was immaculate, well laid out and pitch sizes were generous. The staff were most helpful and very polite. The proximity to Nene Park was a bonus affording wonderful country walks, the Nene Valley Railway provided atmosphere with the steam and smoke blowing across the site now and again. We really enjoyed our stay and have already booked another visit.

I have previously reviewed this site but wanted to add a couple of points after this latest visit. As a dog owner, the nearest pub isn't the place for you unless it is warm enough to sit outside. A previous reviewer has mentioned Ramblewood which is a 15 to 20 minute walk up the road. After numerous walks around the country park we decided to walk to the railway line and turn right up the footpath. You will walk past one railway bridge, and over another to cross the river, at the next bridge turn right up the road and walk into Castor. There are 3 pubs in the village, the last one being 'the prince of wales feathers', which is dog friendly, decent menu, and very welcoming. It took about 45 minutes to an hour but a nice change from the country park routes.

A good caravan club site with the usual high standard of facilities. Shop doesn't sell much though. We were given a friendly welcome and advice from the wardens and assistants.

We took advantage of a half price caravan club offer and used the Nene Valley steam railway to go into Peterborough. The station is a minutes walk away and you can see the steam from the trains and hear them passing from your caravan.

Peterborough looks grim at first but has a nice old city centre and the cathedral is very impressive.

The best thing about this park is the location in a posh suburb next to Ferry Meadows country park with its fishing walking golf sailing cycling etc etc.

The caravan park has loads of resident rabbits and squirrels. The pitches are of a good size.

There is a Beefeater pub/restaurant two minutes walk from the site but they wouldn't accept our group of 8 because we had one dog so we walked 15 minutes to the Ramblewood inn and ate there twice running.

Visited Ferry Meadows over the Bank Holiday and really enjoyed it. Friendly staff, good quality toilet block and lovely setting. One or two of the pitches flooded in the heavy rain one night but overall a really good site.

Caravan club site so very clean and tidy all round. The country park adjoining the site is absolutely lovely and Kids play facilities on and off site great. Local attractions include acres of Country and Lakeland park, Nene Valley Steam Railway, (not a steamy but this really is worth a go), great value too at 17 for a family day ticket on Bank Holiday Monday.

The 'local' is a chain type pub but very good and try a visit to 'The Cuckoo' a short drive away. For a great Panini try the sailing club in the country park but if we go again and we probably will, we'll order one to share, they're massive.

The only slight negative was the ice cream van driving round the site at 9:30pm playing 'Always look on the bright side of life' at full volume.

A really lovely site ideal for families. This was our 2nd trip with our caravan and we had a wonderful time. Toilets and shower facilities were clean, tidy, and in perfect working order.

The pitches were large with plenty of water and electric points. Its a fan site if you have young children, ours were free range and fun fill all weekend.

The neighbouring nene park is beautiful and again perfect if you are a family with young children.

Definable will use ferry meadows again

Ferry Meadows is an excellent CC site, and having visited many CC sites I would easily rank this in my top 5 for cleanliness of the facilities.

We pitched on the reception side of the site and had no problems at all with traffic noise. It was very peaceful just the sounds of the birds in the early mornings.

Entry to the site is via a card barrier. Entrance to the toilets is via a number code which again is much better than sites where you have to remember to take the key with you.

The site is next to the Nene Park which is excellent for walking or cycling. There are also lots of water sports available on the park, which would be ideal if you have teenagers with you.

The steam train runs adjacent to the site, with a 50% discount available for CC users.

Cycle paths into Peterborough are all off road, and flat its approx 3 miles into city centre.

My only gripe would be the chip van. After reading other reviews we decided to try the fish and chips from the van. Yes you do get large portions however they were cooked in old and burnt fat and were probably the worst fish and chips I have ever tasted bar none (maybe we had them on a bad day).

Overall an excellent visit to Ferry Meadows and we would not hesitate to book a return visit.
