Having been to this site many times I would say it is perfect for those who like to take long walks, visit the mill and have good food and drinks at the two local pubs. Our lastest visit in 2014 found that the site toilet blocks are getting a bit dated and a little dirty and hope these are corrected. Most of the times the wardens are more than friendly. If you have dogs that like to have a good run and like water then this is the perfect place to go.

A nice quiet site, perfect for long walks with the dog. Site facilities were good, the toilet/shower block was clean and well maintained. Other facilities, waste water, fresh water, rubbish and chemical toilet empty point were also easy to access and well maintained. Locally there is the mill with it's tearoom nearby - both owned by the National Trust, like the site itself. There are two pubs in Houghton within a few minutes walk. St Ives is a ten minute drive away. The nearest superstore, a Tesco, is also ten minutes drive away, towards Huntingdon. There was no extra charge for the awning or the dog. We would happily use this site again.

Hi campers, what a smashing place! Wardens very helpful & nice. Toilets great clean & always warm! I have been going there for two years now as its near to my son so's he can come over every day for lunch. My family & nephews visit they love it there too! My two Leonbergers love the meadows to run about in. Still haven't visited the pubs as yet maybe this year. Walking along the river is breath taking! Last year in the five minute to village they held music concert which l could hear from site ' that was great' if they hold it again this year l will definitely pop over as you can take your dog with you, an elderly couple like myself went, said it was great fun, all ages, they took their chairs, drinks were cheap as was the food, you could take picnic, they said 'see you next year & go' & it's FREE! For me this place is heaven!

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.
