This is a lovely site with excellent facilities. The site is very well maintained and the wardens work hard to keep this standard; The toilet blocks were spotlessly clean. The site is very convenient for visits to Peterborough by foot, bicycle or public transport. It is easily accessible from all major routes. Reception once on site was friendly and efficient but I totally agree with comments about being talked down to (on the phone) by lady on reception and was sufficiently annoyed to the point of reconsidering my booking but decided not to. Some training on customer relations would be beneficial!

We've found a gem! I write this as a carer for my wheelchair dependent husband and this site ticks all the boxes. On arrival, on a dark evening, I found the staff to be very friendly, offering assistance if ever required, regarding my husband. We had the choice of either staying on the west side or the east but, not being able to see very much, in the dark, they opted to put us on the west side, although they offered us the chance to move, in the daylight, had we wanted to be on the east side. Pitches are big - downside: the dreaded gravel is prevalent but I can't comment about the east side pitches. The site is beautifully maintained and facilities up to the usual high CC standard. The disabled cubicle isn't very big but adequate for both wheelchair occupant and carer. It is well fitted out though and spotlessly clean. The surrounding area is perfect for both wheelchair and mobility scooter use. We prefer not to take the 'van off site so were happy to do the 3. 40 mile walk, into the city centre. There are one or two gradients enroute but nothing too strenuous. As we were experiencing short days, it was quite an adventure to return to site, in the dark. However, approximately half the route is lit by blue LED lights (similar to cats-eyes) marking out the edge of the cycle path. Once into the more wooded area, nearer the site, you really do need a torch! We had the pleasure of seeing the Tornado steam train, during our stay. Here's a bonus: wheelchair users are able to travel on the Nene Valley Railway, access via ramps. We didn't as our stay was too brief, but we were told this by a volunteer who works in the ticket office. Also we didn't use the local bus service, but I would like to think that too, is accessible. I had no problem getting a signal on my mobile but our son often struggled to get a WiFi connection. He travelled down with us but stayed in the nearby Premier Inn, approximately 0. 5 miles along Ham Lane, ideal for campers who may want non-camping family members staying nearby. Next to it is The Granary, offering good quality family meals. All told, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay on this site and will definitely be returning!

As with all caravan club sites it is well maintained and managed and the facilities are up to there usual standard. It is next to Nene Park which has a lake and the river Nene and is a great place to walk or for children to play. If you wish to go out for a meal you will need to use your car but its not far to the nearest pub.

We have been to this site several times and would recommend it to both couples and families.

Just returned from a stay at Ferry meadows with our daughter, son-in-law and grand daughter. This site is very big indeed and covers two main sites one on each side of the road. The good points are that it is in a superb setting. If you have bikes then the paths around the local lakes are really superb. Completely safe you can let your dog run alongside you! Facilities are superb and spotless. Downside is 'lock your bikes up well' there have been thefts over the summer with police on site now doing security markings on bikes. Also no TV signal surprisingly. Not everyone has a satellite dish with them! Had to use the booster cable to get any main channel. Also phone signal was very limited and my wife had no signal at all. The internet wifi was also only partially available on a small section of the site. So yes a beautiful site but with a few technical issues which really need sorting.

Beautiful site.

Great location with the cycle paths and country park next door.

Pub/carvery within walking distance.

Clean toilet block and hot showers.

Bit of a pain having to use the code lock on the doors every time you use them and the children struggle to reach the lock and also remember the code.

Electric hook up points and tv points at pitches.

Terrible WI FI but it's made clear before you book.

Site immaculate other than the odd pile of dog mess from inconsiderate owners. (we cycled through some!)

A little bit frosty on reception.

If its your first time at a caravan club site then be warned! You will get little sympathy and get talked down to a bit.

Rest of the staff were very friendly. Warden was very helpful and attentive when needed.

Play area was well kept and in good order.

Great for the kids to cycle. 99% of the people there when we were adhered to the 5mph speed limit.

Reception shop very sparse with some out of date sweets.

Would certainly go again.

Really enjoyed this site - Nene Park which is adjoining is a fantastic place for walks or bike rides. The site is very well maintained and the wardens work hard to keep this standard. If you are in a motorhome then you are a bit limited for close local shops but the Granary Beefeater is just down the road and the local Notcutts Garden Centre also does breakfast. The showers and toilets were exceptionally clean at the site and they do sell a few basics in reception if you are desperate for supplies. The scenery in the nearby park is amazing and on a hot sunny day breathtaking so we will be going back here as soon as we can.
