Very disappointed. On arrival no pitch available despite booking in April. Eventually a pitch was found for our tent with hook up but this was through a 4 way splitter which they had to rush out and buy! The man who dealt with us was extremely apologetic and desperately embarrassed at the lack of pitch.

No washing up facilities so some campers washed up their dirty pots in the wash basins which was quite disgusting.

Only 2 toilets and showers all combined as 2 washrooms which are not adequate for the number of campers they allow on. One became blocked on our second night.

The road noise was terrible and woke us up at 5. 30! Finally bought earplugs because it was unbearable.

Having said all this, it was a good location for Cambridge but I would definitely look elsewhere to camp when we return.

Was very surprised it had passed as certified by Caravan and Camping Club.

Just back from 8 nights at this C&CC listed site with a group of 5 'vans. All had EHU but I was a bit perturbed by the three-way extension sockets plugged into at least two of the twin socket posts (4 in total I believe).

Plus points: Close to Cambridge and Duxford IWM. Wednesday nights in the clubhouse there is a meal deal of six choices for 6 a meal. Good food, large portions, great service. Beer was a bit steep at around 4 quid a pint, I thought - but hey, it's the holidays!

Swimming pool costs a fiver.

Shower rooms were clean and tidy.

Clean water available from behind the fitness studio through a wooden gate and the Sluice was also in there.

There is a pub in Bourn - The Willow Tree. Good food apparently, although I didn't try it as I am not a fan of Gastro-pubs or their prices.

Now the Minus points:

Top of the list comes the Sluice which was blocked for the entire time we were there, despite management being told about it, at least once every day. Unacceptable, especially as the waste was leaking out the back of the pipes into the field behind.

While there had been an attempt at making hard-standings, it wasn't very well executed with lumps of rubble sticking up all over, or just laying about the place. Drainage was also an issue considering there had been little rain before we arrived and yet the hard-standing grass area's were very soggy and not drying out the whole time we were there.

But most unbearable of all had to be the noise from the road. It was like a racetrack for most of the day, starting around 7am and only quietening down after 10pm-ish. I think every vehicle that came past was a local and therefore knew of the dangers of the two entrances either side of the road, but they all drove at stupid miles an hour! Would I visit again? Most definitely not, I'm afraid. There appears too little commitment to make the site just that little bit better. In fact what finished it for me was getting back from Duxford on the Friday afternoon to find what had been a hole in the hedge onto another field beside the campsite, where everyone tended to walk through for a stroll or to take the dog for a walk had been turned into a nice path. They spent quite some time apparently, pulling out stumps and laying down wood chippings. Nothing wrong with that I hear you say? Well no, but they then erected a sign telling campers they were not allowed entry. I thought it just a pity they couldn't have been as quick sorting the sluice as they were to put up a 'you're not allowed' sign!

Excellent little site, showers and toilets adequate and clean, good value 15 per night with hookup. Golf at guest rates on main course 17. 50. Very friendly, clubhouse serves good food and ale at reasonable prices. Enjoyed the site and the golf, always on the lookout for little sites like this with golf nearby. Didn't visit surrounding area so can't comment on local facilities. Will return as often in this area. Good little site.

Just spent 3 nights here nice little campsite 2 unisex toilet and showers could be a problem if full No security you can drive straight onto site which I find a big problem. Golf and leisure centre across road. Wanted 6 each to use swimming pool you can use toilets and shower here though. Staff really friendly food good nice to sit outside bar nice views, If you like golf this is perfect, lovely course at a good price per round. Would stay again but need to do something with Security

Just returned from a lovely 6 night stay at Bourn Golf and Leisure. I was impressed to find that Bourn have obviously read and taken note of reviews posted here and on other sites. The toilets are clean and to reduce queues they are no longer labelled male and female but are now unisex. The key system with 10 deposit has been abandoned and the toilets are open 24 hours a day, towel hooks have also been provided near to the showers. Queues for the loos can be a problem if a family are showering however there are toilets available in both the health club and the restaurant.

The staff are very friendly and helpful and food in the golf club restaurant is lovely. We made use of the swimming pool and sauna which was a fantastic bonus at such a cheap camp site! There are two fields available for campers, one is on a slope so difficult to find a flat area to pitch up but because the site was quite quiet this did not cause any problem.

The location of Bourn is great within easy reach of Cambridge, we walked the Wimpole Way into the city which took a couple of hours through pleasant countryside. There is a supermarket nearby in Cambourne and a bus stops right outside the golf club.

A lovely peaceful site with only a few electric hook ups but plenty of camping spaces.

A bit confusing when first arriving as the building where the site is states Par5 reception which imply that the reception is in that building, but in fact it is over in the main golf and leisure club building across the road. I think they actually loose money because of this, we saw at least two units arrive late and were gone early in the morning.

The toilet block was not the best. The cleaner should look up from time to time to clear the cobwebs and spiders from the ceiling in the showers/toilet area.

Staff very friendly and the bar area in the golf club very comfortable and welcoming.

We will make sure we take swimming and gym stuff with us for our next visit.

Yes we will go back because of the relaxed ambiance.

Wimpole Hall only about 5 minutes away, well worth a visit. Cambridge only about 5 mins away again well worth a visit. Fowlmere RSPB, free entry and a very nice walk.
