We had a fantastic time at the riverside camping and caravan park, very friendly people, even set up my freeview, dish something I had been trying to do for 2 weeks

Very well kept site, spotless showers and toilets. Off site walking for the dog was good.

The walk into littleport isn't too far and the indian restaurant (takeaway) was first class. We will be going back

This is a return visit to this site. When I booked I asked if I could have the same pitch, this wasn't a problem. The wardens where happy to accommodate this request. Ann & Jim are so helpful and keep the site beautiful.

Yes it is a busy road but it doesn't detract from the lovely site and didn't spoil our stay, though you can hear the trains, they don't run all night again it didn't spoil our trip. We sat on the river bank watching the world go by.

The site is very peaceful despite the above and we went home very relaxed. This site is to be recommend to anyone who wants to completely relax and go back home refreshed. We will be back for a third visit soon.

A lovely site with very, very clean facilities.The shower is not the most powerful one ever but hot & free. The managers Ann & Jim are the nicest ever, so helpful & friendly.

The local pub was shut for refurbishment so we carried on walking into Littleport & went to the Indian restaurant. What a fantastic place. If like us you are a fan of Indian food then this place is a pleasure for the senses.

We are definitely going to stay here again but we will take ear plugs as the horn on the train is loud. As it's close to a railway crossing they have to sound their horn.

That was the only thing we could say that doesn't give this site the highest rating.

Reviewer: Ttigger 8 reviews from this member

Quite a good site although calling it 'Riverside' is stretching it a bit! There is a very busy road between the site and the river! Then there is a steep bank so not easy to sit next to.

Because of the busy road and train line this site is not quiet.

The chickens wandering around and getting in the tent were a real pain.

Owners very friendly and helpful. Tidy and clean with good facilities, including showers, toilets, fresh water, waste disposal points, washing-up and preparation areas, and hook-up.

Other than that a nice site great for Ely.

The site was quiet but the road outside is a rat run to Ely and is also used by sugar beet lorries. The railway over the river has a level crossing and the trains all sound their horns, even late at night.

It is also close to Mildenhall US airforce base so the noise of the jets is quite loud.

Free range chickens wander round the site so if you have dogs it is a problem.

The grass is cut but not collected so if the weather is wet you carry it inside.

Facilities on site were OK although not the friendliest site we have stayed on. Also Cards are not accepted so you will need cash or cheque.

What can I say we stayed for the weekend,nice clean site,toilets and showers lovely and clean,we parked what was like a little orchard really lovely

Also what lovely and helpful owners, we had a spot of trouble with our caravan and the owners where on the spot to give us a hand, a really nice couple

Lovely walk along the river where we ended up in a nice little place called littleport,which had a few nice shops,there was a fish and chip shop,co-op that was handy,ideal also if you like fishin

Ely not far away about 5 miles went to oliver cromwells house enjoyed that,lots lovely shops in ely,went to ely cathedral,so lovely what a lovely town. Ely is the old cobbled streets ect

On the whole a lovely campsite and surrounding area we will be back.But plan to stay longer next time

What a great few days away, been to this site a number of times and good to see that it is continuing to be maintained to a very high standard. Has all the basics you need for a quiet adult only site.

Pitches well spaced and laid out, trees doted around and chickens run free.

Helpful and friendly owners, short walk along the river to Littleport, good selection of small shops, Indian and pub which serves good basic food.

Reviewer: TSA135 1 review from this member

We was searching for a site for a weekend break near ely, not too close and not too far. We picked this one because it was advertised as stunning scenery, next to an elegant river, adults only (with no screaming kids, litter and balls whacking the car).

We could take our dog, he was very well behaved and liked the trees dotted around. Well it was advertised very well but not doing this site justice enough.

The owners were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The toilets were impeccably clean, the water was nice and hot when needed on the few cold days. The owners dogs were very welcoming and we met them on arriving and they did not bother us at all, we saw them again once when the lady was emptying the bins

There were a few other families there and they were very quiet, there seemed to be only 1 static being used.
The only bugbear was the gravel track, it seemed everyone on site including us tip toed across the gravel to the toilet or bin area but it was still a noisy track.
The site was not the benevile salt flat level with grass on top but a scenic campsite that only a complete idiot could not get a level pitch. It rained hard while we was here but it seemed a very well drained site.

The local town was very welcoming with plenty of local grocery stores and some very quaint old fashioned stores that seem to be extinct in my town.

The site was extremely easy to find by map and effortless by satnav. The road outside was very quiet and calm, every now an then a faint sound of a train hoot or a truck rumble past. I say faint but my hearing is pretty good and most things at night wake me up but I slept very well hear.

This lovely, moderately sized site is next to a quiet road, which runs alongside the River Great Ouse. (The road was closed to through traffic for bridge repairs when we were there but I shouldn’t think it gets very busy). The site was restored by the current owners a few years ago and they are keen to maintain its high standards.
Tidy and clean with good facilities, including showers, toilets, fresh water, waste disposal points, washing-up and preparation areas, and hook-up.

The site is gated at night and each hook-up post has a night-time lamp. There is a mix of static chalets, caravans, motorhomes and tents. The rectangular site avoids too much regimentation of pitches and has a cosy atmosphere. It was extremely peaceful during our visit, with only birdsong and the gentle clucking of the hens when we threw them some left-over couscous.

The Black Horse pub is a short walk along the river, which is a popular mooring place. The pub serves food. Across the bridge, in Littleport, there is an Indian and a Chinese restaurant, and fish & chip shop, both recommended although we eat in our ‘van. Dogs are welcome, if kept on a lead but it seems poor experiences in the past have lead to this site becoming adults only.

The cathedral city of Ely is about seven miles away; Cambridge about twenty seven. There are plenty of other small towns and villages to visit and attractions such as the nature reserve at Wicken Fen, some fifteen miles away.

1st visit to this campsite but will def return,this site is clean,shower block and amenities very good standard, really good that you can use the freezer.Fell in love with the dogs and the owners are very friendly and helpful,even the chickens were cute. The indian restaurant in the village is really good and within walking distance. Ely not far away and well worth a visit. All in all we got what we came for, a complete rest in peaceful surroundings.Looking forward to our next visit.
