This was our first visit to Ferry Meadows, but it certainly won't be the last. What a lovely well kept site it is. The facilities were all spotlessly clean. It was quite busy during our stay, but the pitches are quite big and there are several areas where there are no vans opposite.
The grassed area probably has larger pitches. Had we taken our grandchildren with us, we would have chosen that side of the site, as it had a larger play area. However we chose the hardstanding side, where the site reception is, as it seemed quieter.
There is plenty of wildlife on the site, many different species of birds, many squirrels, and although I am told that I exagerate sometimes, there really were hundreds of rabbits.
Nene Country Park which is adjacent to the site is beautiful, and we were lucky enough to have good weather to enjoy it. There is a golf course at the top of the road which approaches the site, and this is within walking distance. Also next to the golf course there is a pub, which serves meals all day.
If you turn left at the roundabout after leaving the site and travel a short way, there is a signpost to turn right to local shops, where you will find a row of shops with a mini supermarket ( handy if you run out of milk etc. If the site shop is closed ), a newsagents, and a take-away which is open nightly; it only takes about five minutes by car to get there, and the little village with thatched roofs is really pretty.
This site is ideal for couples and families alike, and has been very well thought out.
I expected to dislike this site, having been squashed in Norfolk, but it was superb. Clean and with lots of nice nooks and glades. Facilities were good, with lovely hot showers, but I do wish they still had an iron. Go for the side across the road from the main reception, mostly grass pitches and really pleasant. I did feel however that if it was full, it would have been difficult to access some of the tighter pitches. Next door to a super country park, with miles of cycling/walking. Why cant all CC sites be like this?
Just returned from a fantastic weekend at Ferry Meadows ! A lovely typically well maintained Caravan Club site with extremely friendly wardens (especially the bald guy who was great with the kids on site) the site has a well stocked shop, immaculate toilet blocks and is very secure with barrier access
A chip van visits Wednesday, Friday & Saturday evenings
Ferry meadows is situated in a large park which has loads to do for all ages (water sports, good kids play areas, a miniature railway, boat trips, fishing and miles & miles of cycle ways (the entire Peterborough area is very cycle friendly - a path takes you all the way into the city centre (about 5 miles)
The Nene Valley steam railway runs past the site with a station just along the road (caravan club members staying on site get a 50% reduction)
There are 3 children's play areas on the site and loads of wildlife (rabbits squirrels all sorts of birds - even saw a red kite overhead
In my opinion this is one of the best Caravan Club sites in the country for facilities, friendly staff and location
Just back from 3 nights at Ferry Meadows over the Bank Holiday weekend.
We previously visited here one winter many years ago, and oh boy the place is certainly different in the summer.
We arrived on the Friday about 6 pm, the fish and chip van was in attendance so we decided to leave the awning until Saturday and just start to relax.
The site is big, and obviously busy, but pick your pitch carefully to suit your needs. This time I wanted to pitch on grass.
The hard standing area on the west side, where you check in, is mostly hard standing and seemed much quieter, less children, but I liked the East side for the atmosphere. We were in one of the many side areas, some areas are much busier with lots of children and bikes.
There is a small playground, big pitches, and a toilet block for each side of the site.
It's very flat, and very well kept. The toilet blocks were clean at all times.
The site is close enough to walk into Nene Park, which is lovely, or 10 minutes drive into Peterborough centre, we did both.
The on site shop is fine, a large Co-op 5 minutes drive away at Orton centre.
The wardens were great, friendly and very hard working.
We had a lovely weekend, peaceful and fun, helped by the sunny weather, and all our fellow caravanners seemed to feel the same!
This is our second visit, loved it the first time could not fault it wardens very nice and friendly, we like this site as it is up to the c/c standard facilities toilet block very clean and warm. We like to bring our bikes here as there are plenty of places to cycle and safely. We like to cycle to Peterborough along side the rail track and see the steam train. You can catch the train from the station which is within with easy walking distance from site. Pub and garden centre also close by. Turn left out of entrance and you can cycle or walk for miles around the park. We will be back!
This was our first visit to Ferry Meadows and we choose the East side to stay as it was nice and peaceful. It was a very well thought out site with service points dotted quite close to pitches. The facilities were very good and spotlessly clean. It was quite quiet during our stay and I don't think I would like it when it is full.
There are plenty of birds and rabbits and you have to be careful about rabbit holes in the grassy areas.
Nene Country Park which is adjacent to the site is well worth a visit. Will definitely return here again.
