Hi, Just returned from a 4 night stay at this adults only site. Extremely peaceful and we struck very lucky with the weather. All pitches are fully serviced and mainly level - we used our Milenco leveller just to ensure shower tray drainage.

The site is very well maintained and the facilities block is clean, warm and well lit. We didn't use the on site restaurant as it was not open Monday to Thursday - menu looked tempting though.

Site is 0. 75 miles down a lane from village but there are footpaths to shorten trip to local pub for grub - Mad Cat Inn.

There is an excellent Park and Ride system from nearby St Ives to Cambridge. We also visited Anglesey Abbey and Wicken Fen Nature Reserve.

Overall, a very pleasant break. Would recommend.

This was our first outing in our caravan. This was a great site and we were made most welcome on arrival. The site is well laid out and the hardstandings are all excellent, with most being flat. All have access to their own water, drainage and electric.

The facilities block was kept clean at all times and was excellent.

We will certainly return in the future.

We've just returned from Stroud Hill Park after spending the August bank holiday weekend there.

We initially found this site through Tranquil Touring Parks but discovered it also offered grass pitches for tents.

The site is well located - it's no more than half an hour to most of the major tourist attractions of the area, especially Cambridge.

It's a very pretty site with a lovely large timber framed building in the centre which houses the restaurant and bar, the reception, a shop and the toilets and showers.

The grass pitches for tents are at the top of the site and the tent field has it's own water supply. The camping field overlooks the fishing lake and was flat, well kept and pleasantly stone and tree root free which made pitching nice and easy.

The toilets and showers are excellent. The showers are wet rooms which contain both a toilet and a sink as well as the shower and there is plenty of space to leave your clothes by the door so they don't get wet. Everything was always immaculately clean and well stocked.

There is also a washing area which houses a washing machine, tumble drier and an iron with ironing board. Use of the washer or drier is 2 and based on an honesty system. There is also a food and vegetable preparation area which was always clean and very well looked after.

We didn't make use of the bar and restaurant as there were far too many interesting pubs to visit in the local area. Two worth visiting are the King of the Belgians in Huntingdon and the Abbot's Elm in Abbots Ripton. The latter is quite expensive but has amazing food.

Over all, we had a great time visiting Cambridge and wandering around the footpaths of the Fens and were always pleased to return to such a well organised, quiet and clean site with excellent facilities.

This adult only caravan park is ideally situated for visiting Cambridge and Ely. Just a short journey from the site is a Park & Ride that takes you into the heart of Cambridge and we found this very convenient as it took the hassle out of driving and trying to find a parking spot. St Ives is also close by and is well worth a visit.

The site has an excellent restaurant and although not cheap, we found the selection and quality of meals excellent. There was an area for washing and ironing clothes and a small shop on the site. There is a carp lake with some decent size fish for those that enjoy the sport.

The facilities were kept very clean and well stocked with requirements by the wardens. The shower rooms were like wet rooms with a toilet and wash basin. The water was nice and hot. This is a tranquil site ideal for a quiet relaxing holiday.

The reception by the wardens was the best we have experienced and I must say they seemed to work non-stop to make this site one of the best we have visited. We look forward to visiting the site again.

We stayed at Stroud Hill over the Bank Holiday weekend arriving Friday 24th May 2013. Both wardens were on hand with a friendly greeting and we were told to drive around and find a pitch we liked and return to reception to inform them of the pitch number. We chose a lovely pitch next to a large hedge that offered privacy. However, the unit on the other side of the hedge were invaded by thousands of ants. The owners had to literally empty their van in an attempt to get rid of the ants. I am just glad the ants decided to head east and not west!

The shop on site is limited but very useful and the bar / restuarant looked very impressive, although we didn't have an opportunity to sample their goods!

A walk around the fish pond at the top of the site is a must and was very pleasant. The local village of Warbouys 10 minutes drive away has everything you need with a Spar and a decent takeaway. Give Kims Chinese a try - very nice!

The toilet block was very nice and central to the site. My only concern was that there was not enough showers and toilets to accomodate a busy Bank Holiday. Three showers, three urinals and two cubicles. Monday morning and gentlemen were queuing not just for a shower but for a cubicle, then only to discover there was no toilet roll and no paper towels to dry your hands. Very disappointing. A problem possibly as a result of this being a day the wardens swap over. Still, being our last day it left a disappointing feeling to our stay as we departed.

Would we visit again? Yes.

This is a really lovely site. Pitches are large, with electric hook-ups, plenty of fresh water points, disposal of black and grey water, the toilets and showers are clean. Prices are also very reasonable. There are plenty of walks for the dogs.

we come here every year on a rally with our club, [ this year was probably the 11th or 12th year, and we all love the site. St Ives is a nice small market town, and well worth a visit. The area around the river is a pretty area, with plenty of pubs/eateries.

The local fish & chips shop in Somersham is good value [ and if like us, on a rally, they will deliver large orders] The Marsh Harrier pub on the outskirts of St Ives also was good value for money, plenty of menu choice, The food was good, hot, tasty and the portions were fine. The service was also good, friendly.

The town has a reasonably sized market on a Monday.
