This is a great site in a wonderful location. Wardens were friendly and really helpful. Tent pitches are really spacious, grass and level. Showers, toilets, washing up areas all spotless. The location is to die for. Houghton Mill is adjacent to the site. The village is beautiful and only 5 minutes walk to a friendly pub. Another bonus is that the village playing field (on way to 3 Jolly Butchers) has a fantastic playground.

The wider local area includes St Ives, a lovely old town. From there you can get the guided bus into Cambridge.

Unfortunately when we arrived the power was off and stayed off for 26hrs! However the wardens were VERY helpful and kept us informed. Booking in was VERY easy, as was choosing a pitch. The site is in a great location, close to the river, but not too close for kids safety, some great walks, easy walk to two pubs (shame it's the furthest that does the best food!) and a well stocked village shop. It's no wonder this is a busy site and difficult to book, and with such laid back helpful wardens we WILL BE BACK! (If we can re-book!)

Brilliant site. Toilets & shower block spotless Site well kept and in a lovely village. Don't miss the mill next door - it's fascinating. The village is only a few minutes walk away where there is a well stocked shop and two pubs. The closest pub was the three horseshoes and if it was run correctly could be a good pub. Unfortunately it was full of loud 'hooray Henries' who seemed to be having a swearing competition egged on by the apparently not too bright landlord. The beer was in top condition but the price was outrageous - £3. 95 per pint. I have paid less in the West End. I would avoid at all costs, as there is another pub a further 3-4 minutes walk away called the 3 jolly butchers. This is a much more civilised and reasonably priced pub with excellent food. Make sure to book this site well in advance as this was my third time of trying to get in.

This is an exception camp site but difficult to Find a vacancy.

The shower block was lovely, and warm even at 06:00. Hrs

Very easy access into St Ives for walkers, cyclist, all traffic free and well worth a visit, IF you can drag yourself. Away from the camp it being so peaceful with lots of space to do your own thing.

The river is a must for families, the children can paddle, fish, canoe, all in a very safe environment, it being more like a lake.

This goes down as one of my favourites, but not easy to get a vacant pitch.

No WI FI but he local pub, just a very short walk has.

All I can Say is WOW.

This site is situated right next to the river and makes this perfect for canoe and kayak.

Local pub is just a stones throw away (5 mins walk) and serves good food and real ale, all at a good price for such a premium location.

Although the site was fully booked it never seemed busy and the near perfect toilet block was always clean and empty.

This is a club site and even though I'm not a member I was always made to feel welcome.

Only drawback is it only has about 5 tent pitches and none are electric.

A lovely site and have already tried to return but alas they were fully booked (so please book well ahead).

We stayed for two nights at the end of July 2013.

We used to live in the village so know the area well. It's a great spot with easy access to lovely walks. The two pubs in Houghton/Wyton are good and you can walk across the river and fields to Hemmingford Grey and Hemmingford Abbots. St Ives is also walking distance along the pretty 'thicket' path.

The site and facilities were all in good order. We didn't see much of the wardens but didn't really need to. Will make a point of returning. Although it is a bit odd having a holiday somewhere you used to live!
