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.

Have just spent a great eight days at this super site.

We have visited before when the Caravan Club managed it and were wondering if much has changed since The National Trust took over the running of the site.

We thought standards were even higher.

The toilet block was immaculate at all times even during the bank holiday weekend when the site was full.

The wardens were very welcoming and friendly. They always had time to have a few words.

The pitches are all grass and very well looked after and unlike most grass sites we have visited the grass was cut when most of the campers had left after the weekend.

The village is a five minute walk with a small supermarket type shop for all you would need.

Must recommend the lovely beeer garden at The Three Jolly Butchers in the village.

Super sunny spot and the food is good too.

A half an hour countryside walk leads you to the small town of St Ives. Very pretty on the riverside.

A great site to visit with friendly wardens.

Thank you Nicola and Gary and the young warden who I'm afraid I don't know his name!

We will be back.

This is an excellent site. All the facilities are good. In late April the blossom on the trees was spectacular. The entrance to the site is quite a tight blind right angled turn. They are therefore very strict about arrival and departure times. Depart by 12 noon and arrive after 1. 00pm. We hadn’t realised this and because of a clear journey actually arrived at 11:45. Even though the site was less than half full we were told to drive right round the site and leave it and go back and wait in the National Trust car park until 1:00pm. I was muttering under my breath words like, “jobsworth”. However despite my grumpy attitude I must say the staff were extremely polite and cheery. We had a great time there and hope to return soon. It’s a great place for walking the dogs around the meadows. Next time we might take the canoe and explore the many streams flowing in and out of the River Ouse adjacent to the site. It is a little more expensive than some sites, but the high quality makes it good value for money.

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.
