Reviewer: Lynm 80 reviews from this member

This is a very beautiful site and you just have to be careful of getting from road to pitch as it can undulate & we grounded our back feet. That said it was worth it as the pitches are lovely and they really are 6m apart. The facilities are clean & well maintained though 3 showers aren't really enough at busy times like this weekend. But it was all free.

It was kayak central with lots of people canoeing on the mill pond and the little river. Great walks too even coming a cross a field of Alpacas.

There are downsides, sadly, as I would love to have given this site a 10/10.

There is no time for quiet at night or until time in the morning and sadly there are some who abuse it. Both our nights there were disturbed with children running around and screaming & playing at 10:30 pm which was very unfair as everyone else on the site was so good because at 10pm they all went quiet. The children we were with were woken up by this both times.

Both mornings we were woken before 7am by people who wanted to talk very loudly especially on the Sunday with a chap who gave a blow by blow account of how he was packing up.

If there was a time stated & most sites say 8:00 am I am sure this wouldn't happen. We aren't all early risers.

Only other thing be aware of the approach road. It was beautiful weather this weekend & lots were coming to visit the mill so interesting getting out. Will we visit again? probably with our friends but not on our own.

Fourth visit to this wonderful site and it definitely wont be the last.

The whole site is immaculate, yes I know its very undulating but never had a problem getting a level pitch. The wardens are the friendliest and the most helpful we have ever come across.

We choose this site because we can arrive, park the car and leave it there for the duration of our visit.

Some excellent walks both shorts ones and long ones.

We ate in The 3 Jolly Butchers, both the food and the beer were excellent.

There is no doubt that we will be back there again soon

This is the first time back for a number of years and could not be more impressed. A brilliantly kept site, and the wardens are of the highest standard could not do enough to help. The washrooms were keep spotless. I will be returning in the near future and would recommend others to give it a go

Nice little campsite situated on the banks of the River Great Ouse in Houghton near Huntingdon. Access to the site is from the A14 and the site is signposted off the A1123. When you reach the bend in the village you have to drive across what looks like a car park then down a lane and the site is at the bottom on the left.

The site itself is very undulating but there are level pitches if you look out for them failing this you will have to use levellers, all pitches are on grass. The facilities were good but we didn't think there would be enough toilets, showers and sinks if it was very busy (there was 3 of each in the menís and the women's). Although we were there in August it was not crowded but there was still a bit of queuing. However I totally disagree with the comment below re it stinking of urine and scruffy as they were kept clean at all times although I accept they could do with a bit of refurbishment. Perhaps it has improved in 2016.

Fellow motorhome owners should note that although the site states it has Motor Home emptying point strictly speaking this is not true because you cannot drive over it and have to park as near as you can and use a bucket. I noted a lot of motorhome owners who were obviously aware of this and were using wastemasters.

This is a lovely area for walking and cycling. We used the cycle track at the rear of the site (by pitch 7) to walk the mile and a half to St. Ives, which was a lovely place with nice tea rooms on the river. Houghton itself has the Mill to visit and walks along the river and to Hemingford Abbots.

In the village there are two pubs and we ate in the Three Jolly Butchers and had a good evening meal which was reasonably priced.

Overall we like this site and the surrounding area and would happily visit again.

Stayed here for a weekend in June, and is an absolutely lovely campsite.

We had and electrical tent pitch which had no problem in accommodating for our large tent size (8mx7m)

Staff was very friendly and very helpful.

Toilet and shower facilities were immaculate and warm.

Lovely area to walk the dogs and lots of things to do nearby - worth a mention is to go to the Raptor foundation - kids loved the bird of prey show and so did the grown ups!

We loved this site!

The pitches were a generous size, level and well maintained.

The water, waste and bins were all easy to find and easy to use.

The facilities were fantastic; lots of toilets, showers and sinks. All clean and well kept.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful.

The village shop and pub is just minutes walk away.

We will definitely revisit this site. It's a little gem.

Well located for walking and if you like shopping it's not too far from Cambridge.

For £20/night with ehu, we think it was super value.
