Reviewer: Kavanagh 7 reviews from this member

 Very friendly couple who own the site, clean facilities, well kept site. Our tent was pitched in a small area in between the river and the marina, amongst the trees. A beautiful setting,

Only one downside, the noise from the A14 which was pretty constant as the road was very close by. But after a couple of beers we soon got used to it, and luckily we had brought our ear plugs!

The village of Godmanchester is within walking distance where you'll find a small convenience store and a few pubs. Lovely walk around the river.

 I had two great nights here. We travelled up on motorbike, a very warm reception from the owner and showed us a choice of pitches.

As we started to put up the tent, it looked like we had left pegs at home, I had a chat with the owner and he promptly went to his shed and sorted enough out to get me out of trouble.

Strangely enough, we found (missing pegs) but that's camping on a bike, sharing weight load ect.

Toilets, showers superb, well kept site, lovely and clean.

Yes was some road noise but you get used to it.

Easy walks into Huntingdon and Godmanchester, and several pubs to choose from if you wish.

Would I go back, yes I would and will hopefully get there this year, if not next, highly recommend

 Our first time at this site and we had a great time, its small and friendly and we had a nice welcome and help to position our caravan. Easy walks into Huntingdon and Godmanchester and on site right next to river with lovely views. I did find it noisy at night with traffic from A14 but am a light sleeper so that was expected really and we plan another visit as we were impressed with this site.

 Our first time here, easy to find just off the A14. No queues just a nice size site and not overcrowded, with pleasantly relaxing atmosphere including fantastic river views.

Polite and welcoming owners with clean toilets / showers and tidy facilities. With a slipway to launch the inflatable! 5 min walk to Huntingdon with high street shops, restaurants etc. We'll definitely be returning soon.

 This site is situated in a beautiful area with lots of shops near by. Some lovely walks through the nearby country park and along the waterways which my kids loved.

Site itself is very clean and well maintained. There is no playground for the children and little room to kick a football around luckily for us it was quiet so had a little bit more room to explore.

The toilets are clean and plenty of them, two showers for each sex and again they were well maintained and last long enough using a token to have a decent shower. The owners were polite and helpful and informed us that they had to leave the site for the day so we could retrieve ice packs and get shower tokens.

The only thing that spoilt it was the noise from the A14, the traffic going over the fly over echoed down the camp site and never stops all night. The plus to this is you cant hear anyone else in the tents near to you! Unfortunately this has stopped us from returning this year and have booked elsewhere.

Reviewer: Royston rovers 1 review from this member

 Had a fantastic 3 night stay at Huntingdon Boat Haven. Very friendly and helpful owners. We were on the caravan field and had electric hook up. Best thought out shower cubicles I've encountered so far - plenty of room to change, lots of hooks to hang clothes and towels on and a chair too!
Toilets and showers were clean and never too busy. Site as a whole was well maintained, as was the dog-walk field adjacent to the site. Beautiful location overlooking the river and meadows. Easy walks into both Huntingdon and Godmanchester and good reasonably priced food at the nearby pub (Black Bull?).
I had worried that the traffic noise from the A14 would disturb us, but actually we didn't notice it after a while - it was a constant background noise which masked any noise from other campers. Would recommend a visit to Houghton Mill which is nearby - very interesting. All in all a very good weekend.

 Great little site, mainly for couples as no facilities on site but plenty close by. Toilet block kept clean & tidy. The tent area would be wonderful in Sunny weather as it overlooks the river, shame it wasn't during our visit.
Black Bull lived up to previous reviews and only a couple of minutes to walk! loads of places to visit nearby. Only word of warning - take earplugs A14 is unbelievable for traffic. Would be happy to return or recommend it to friends

 Nice quiet site very friendly owners. Showers and toilets kept clean and tidy handwash and soft loo roll are provided. 5 min walk to the nearest pub Black Bull which does lovely home cooked meals which are very reasonably priced.
The site is only a few minutes walk away from Huntingdon town centre which has a variety of shops eating places and pubs. The Three Tuns in Huntingdon town centre is the only one we tried we were made to feel very welcome and for those of you who can't live without it, (like my husband!) the three tuns also has sky sports!

I would definitely recommend this campsite. The only downsides are the traffic noise from the A14 and the toilet / shower block is a fair walk from the tent field. All in all a lovely friendly site set in beautiful surroundings

 Stayed here for 4 nights on the way to Norfolk, nice spot over looking the river but I'd suggest earplugs for the traffic noise if a light sleeper. Marina is lovely and a walk into Godmanchester is nice. Funny enough I thought the toilet block could do with some TLC but perhaps its had it since then! otherwise first rate.

Reviewer: Howtons 1 review from this member

 We have just returned from a weekend break spent at this lovely, peaceful campsite. The site is in a very nice location, right on the River Ouse and it was pleasant to watch the boats go by whilst drinking your morning coffee. The site is small, but that added to the attraction as far as I'm concerned. As it was small it had a friendly community spirit - with most of our fellow campers being happy to pass the time of day with you - there was the odd exception, but you can't please them all can you!

The campsite itself is very well kept and the facilities were excellent. I never had to queue for a shower or a loo and everything was provided - down to nice liquid handsoap in the loos, washing up liquid, sponges and plentiful hot water in the washing up area. The showers are operated by tokens which cost 25p a go - didn't have a problem with that as the shower was lovely, hot and lasted for 5 minutes, ample! There were a few nice touches I thought too - piped music in the toilet / shower block, hairdryer and proper loo roll. On top of all this it was very clean and well maintained.

The site does have electric hook-up facilities, but we don't bother with electric when camping - we think it's nice to do without tellies for a spell and it does the kids (and us!) good. Nice also to spend time enjoying the outdoors, talking and enjoying each other's company for a change. We have very busy lives and it's great to escape the rat race for a while - this was definitely the place to do that!

There were only two small downsides for us. First of all the location. This has been mentioned by all the other reviewers - the campsite is more or less on top of the very busy A14. It was noisy but it was amazing how quickly we got used to the sound of the road (sort of became normal background noise) and it didn't stop us sleeping well or relaxing totally for a couple of days. Secondly, we had two 9 year old boys with us and there was absolutely nowhere for them to kick a football about or have a bit of a run around. But the campsite is small and we knew that before we got there. They busied themselves drawing etc, so it was fine.

We ate out at the Black Bull up the road on our first evening as we only just managed to pitch our tents before the heavens opened. It took about 5 mins to walk there, so very convenient. Very nice meal and family friendly too. The meals were a bit slow coming, but we forgave the wait when we got our freshly cooked dinner. It was a rare treat to have proper hand cut, chunky chips and fresh vegetables. All reasonably priced too.

We hired a boat from a boatyard in Huntingdon (easy to walk to) on our 1st day - this was absolutely brilliant and I would highly recommend it. It only cost 18 for an hour's cruising (although they did take a deposit of 100, which was fully refunded when we brought their boat back in one piece). It is such a nice area and looked even prettier from the river.

We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this campsite to anyone and will definitely be returning again in the future.
