 Very typical CAMC site, everything as we would expect.

We were on West side busy but peaceful. Had a walk around East side - much louder, children and ball games going on everywhere.

Busy check in, felt the need to explain how to park, go through the map, etc with every person - if you are a regular club user probably not necessary.

Still think £34.95 is very expensive but you take the choice when you book.

Absolutely loved the area the park, lakes, steam railway - we were only passing through but will definitely be back

 To find site:- The site is about 5 minutes from the A1. Leave A1 onto either the A47 or A605 towards the centre of Peterborough and follow brown signs for the 'Nene Park'.

(Avoid the small slip road which cuts out the Notcutts roundabout as this can be congested with parked vehicles and market type stalls, particularly at weekends.

At the roundabout by the Notcutts Garden Centre turn left into Ham Lane and the campsite is situated just before the Country Park car parks on the left, the entrance is well signed. This site operates a double barrier system, the first one off the road is controlled either by an intercom or at busy times by a member of staff.

This was one the first sites we ever stayed at when we started caravanning more than 40 years ago and have visited many times since. In total there are 265 pitches which are split between two sections either side of the Nene Park access road.

The main reception is in the West site which consists of a majority of hard-standings pitches, although there are also a few grass ones, and it is this part of the site which is open all year.

The East site, just across the road, has mainly grass pitches although there are now about 30 or so hardstandings. The tent area is also on this part of the site. Both parts have their own toilet blocks which are up to the usual CMC standards. Both blocks have recently been upgraded and extended.

There are play areas in each section and it seems the Rally Field can be used for more boisterous games when not in use. Electrical connections are rated at 16 amps and use standard blue CEE17 sockets.

Each electric bollard also has a digital TV hook up point. It is free to use although you need to provide your own co-ax cable or purchase one from Reception. There are service points dotted around the site.

Unfortunately, the motorhome service point has not been upgraded to and open grill so still needs a heavy drain cover to be lifted to dispose of waste water. Site wide WiFi is available and time can be purchased online.

Alternatively, EE and 02 have reasonable G4 connections if you prefer to use your own data. This site tends to be very busy, particularly at weekends and Bank Holidays so itís an idea to book, non-members are accepted.

Reception normally has some things for sale but this still seems to be restricted to toilet chemicals and gas as the pandemic goes on. Price wise I thought that £31 a night was a bit excessive, Easter influence on pricing seems to be extending beyond the normal two weeks?

It certainly makes an ideal site for a weekend or even longer. It is situated in the Nene Valley Park which is in the outer suburbs of Peterborough within easy access from the A1. The Park provides wonderful opportunities for walks and cycle rides.

If you want to visit the city centre the best way is to catch a steam train into the centre of Peterborough if it is in operation during your stay. The Nene Valley Railway runs along one side of the site and the station is a few minutes walk from the site.

Also within easy walking distance is a Notcutts Garden Centre, a Beefeater Pub and a golf course. The site information hut gives details of the local supermarkets and directions.

There is now a new large shopping centre called the Serpentine Green Shopping Centre a couple of miles away that contains a Tesco Extra. There is also a Co-Op convenience store about a mile walk from the site.

Each side of the campsite has its own information point. If you don't want to use your car there is a good bus service (route number Citi 1) from Wistow Drive which is about a ten-minute walk from the site.

They run about every ten minutes at peak time. Itís a circular route so they go one way, left to right, along Wistow Drive.

 Great site with a steam railway running behind.

Up to usual C&MC standards. Good size pitches and shower blocks.

Great friendly wardens who keep the place spotless.

Turn left out of the gate is the wonderful Ferry Meadows Park, great hard surfaces walks among lakes and rivers.

Definitely worth a visit, we plan to go again soon.

 What a lovely caravan and motorhome park. Right in the middle of Nene Park. All the facilities that you would expect from a Caravan and Motorhome club site.

The caretakers/wardens very welcoming and friendly. Even though we had not phoned ahead of our visit they gave us a pitch right next to the facilities block because I said that I could not walk too far due to a recent heart attack.

There are two sides to this large site and East and West. We stayed on the west side and found it very peaceful and quiet.

The east side had more tents and seemed to be for familys with young children, it had a large play area too.

Everything you need is within walking distance, trains into town, supermarkets and of course the wonderful Nene Park and all it's facilities.

I even hired a motor mobility scooter for a ride round the park. Great value for money and would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing break with plenty of activities etc should you want them.

You can hire bycycles and even a car direct from the site. Would like to go again and stay for longer.

Perfect site for visiting a friend who lives just up the road.

 We parked on a hillside with an uninterrupted view over the countryside.

It was very peaceful, heard mostly birdsong, lovely sunset.

Basic loos and shower, friendly owners and other campers.

 Really nice clean site with good facilities and very friendly and helpful staff. First time caravanning solo and couldnít have chosen better.

Other guests nearby come repeatedly so know onto good thing here.

Right next to the Nene Country Park and a Premier Inn and Beefeater. Garden Centre and golf course all close by.

Little shop in reception with bread and other essential items.

Didnít use toilets or showers as no need but were available.

Reviewer: Stevolou 1 review from this member

 The site was situated perfectly for the purpose of our visit which was dog walking and relaxation.

Hard standing pitch, clean and tidy toilets and showers and a most convenient service point.

The wardens were friendly and helpful and the lovely Ferry Meadows country park is right next door.

The site was easy to find as well. Really hope to visit again so that we can explore the park a bit more

Will I return it has got to be a yes as this a lovely quiet site with plenty do around the Nene park, walks, lakes, canal walk, Steam railway line, pub, and even a fresh herb box outside reception for people to use, even a garden centre thrown in just up the road. The pitches are very generous and very well kept. The staff are very helpful and will do that bit extra for you. Well done Ferry Meadows. †

Thankyou especially to the warden who gave me some helpful tips on how to put our awning up as we have been struggling with this since we bought it.

Thankyou thankyou thankyou

 We always liked this site, but wow it is full this time and it's mid week. Covid-19 has taken its effect!

The changes to the toilet block is crazy! Taped off the urinals and open wash hand basins closed off as are some cubicles, no shower curtains(water goes everywhere)!

About 200 pitches and only 3 people at a time aloud in toilets!

However, this is the new way of Caravanning and Motorhome life; seems like take it or leave it; nanny state rules!
