All I can Say is WOW.

This site is situated right next to the river and makes this perfect for canoe and kayak.

Local pub is just a stones throw away (5 mins walk) and serves good food and real ale, all at a good price for such a premium location.

Although the site was fully booked it never seemed busy and the near perfect toilet block was always clean and empty.

This is a club site and even though I'm not a member I was always made to feel welcome.

Only drawback is it only has about 5 tent pitches and none are electric.

A lovely site and have already tried to return but alas they were fully booked (so please book well ahead).

We stayed for two nights at the end of July 2013.

We used to live in the village so know the area well. It's a great spot with easy access to lovely walks. The two pubs in Houghton/Wyton are good and you can walk across the river and fields to Hemmingford Grey and Hemmingford Abbots. St Ives is also walking distance along the pretty 'thicket' path.

The site and facilities were all in good order. We didn't see much of the wardens but didn't really need to. Will make a point of returning. Although it is a bit odd having a holiday somewhere you used to live!

Excellent facilities in a quiet area as one would expect when owned by the National Trust. The working mill is a must visit which includes a guided tour on how it all works. And of course a visit to the tea room is required to experience the home made scones using the flour milled next door!

Houghton is a 5 minute walk away but do queue opposite the bus shelter to go into Cambridge otherwise the driver my drive off before you can cross the road. Otherwise remain at bus shelter if one wants to visit Huntingdon.

The local pub nearby sells excellent beers and a pleasant evening was enjoyed there by us all! Tescos with petrol is nearby as is a very good garden centre called Huntingdon with discounts on Wednesdays.

I think the 2 wardens do a super job given their office and jobs without other help. Hopefully that will be overcome once the main holidays start. We will be back as we did not do Cambridge justice.

This is another clean Caravan club site with the usual standard of facilities that you expect from them (some pitches are very uneven).

The site is in a nice village with a Post Office/general store and 2 pubs. There is a tea room at the NT mill which is only a few paces from the site.

The site has lovely walks directly from it and is on a cycle route. However if you like a nice view from your pitch this isn't the site for you.

There is a strict no ball games policy on site which is expected, however if you pitch on pitches 2 to 6 you back onto the national trust car park which is grass and only separated from the site by a low one bar fence, leaving caravans vulnerable from locals who choose to play cricket there.

Wardens where very helpful and friendly.

Would visit again but hopefully pitch further into the site than pitch 5 and take our bikes next time.

We usually come here once a year and it it always up there on our favourites list.

It hasn't changed from when we used to visit the in laws before we camped/ got the van.

Shower block is always very clean and never seems to look tired.

Wardens are friendly and helpful.

We love this site as its so easy to launch our kayak from, and we have spent many an hour paddling around the river and its tributaries. Watching the wildlife and nosing at the big riverside houses and their massive gardens with private moorings!

If there is any negative for us it would be the lack of playground for kids. However there isnt really space for a playground. There never seems to be loads of kids on site but that has never bothered our two.

The wine merchants in St Ives is a must!

Theres a lovely cycle ride to St Ives and you can cycle back round the back way through the Hemmingfords villages, back through Hemmingford meadow. On the way you could stop at the Axe and Compass Pub for a lovely pub lunch.

One night stopover on a very wet weekend. Although its all grass pitches we found the grass firm enough even with 2 days prior or torrential rain. We arrived slightly before 1pm and parked up with 3 other units in the NT carpark (limited space there).

The site is very well kept, toilets and showers immaculate and no queues despite site being fairly full.

No MH waste empty point but we managed with our own waste pipe to the drains. All pitches had ehu.

The village is literally minutes along the lane. A couple of nice looking pubs, a very well stocked local supermarket / village store. 17 for 2 adults for 1 night

We will use again - top site
