 We liked mr andrews with his precise and curteous information and we are grateful he let us arrive after 5pm giving us the gate code, also joe the security guard was very helpful when we first arrived,

We stayed for 1 night, a grass pitch and electric hook up cost a reasonable £20. It was very peaceful,

Loved being amongst the wild life especially the lovely blackbird who we had given a blueberry to ( he took it and flew off to his fledglings or mate i think) and a cheeky robin who perched on the chair outside looking at us inside our motorhome!

A very nice campsite

We will recommend it to our friends and family for sure!

 Good overspill location for the Peterborough motor show

Quiet pleasing location,

Could do with paying with credit card instead of insisting on cash payments, so site rules are displayed on the receipt of payments and out of hours arriving chasing of money’s is not a concern.

 Was delighted to find social distancing in operation.

Plenty of room for each unit.

On one of the hottest days of the year was able to shelter beneath the massive hedges and escape direct sunshine completely

Quiet site, well run with friendly, empathetic staff.

As there were Covid restrictions I was unable to appreciate all the facilities.

 Nice site, quite large and mainly grass pitches but mostly level.

Handy for Peterborough which is a nice a nice city to visit.

The entrance to the site a a little unconventional but once you are aware of it there is no problem.

 We stayed at Northey Lodge as an overnight to break an otherwise long journey. Very suitable as only 5 mins off main A47.

The pitching area is a very large; level & well prepared field which has been divided into areas/bays with closely planted Leylandii trees. This very effectively provides shelter and transforms the perception of a very large field. There is also a separate rally field.

W. C. /shower (free) facility is excellent and conveniently located.

Chem disposal is adjacent to W. C. /shower facility and water points are dotted about the pitching area.

Dog friendly (£1/night). Must be on lead at all times. Rally field designated as dog walking area. An extended dog walk can be had by going out of main gate, along a raised bank next to road for approx. 300 - 400m, then along the river path, which you could follow for 3 miles into Peterborough.

Nothing by way of amenities within walking distance, but Peterborough centre is 10 – 15 mins away by car or 3 mile walk along river.

A personal recommendation: The Brewery Tap in Peterborough. A smart pub serving Oakhams Ales plus a vast variety of other drinks as well as reasonably priced and authentic Thai food.

To sum up: A very comfortable site but without any local amenities.

 Very quiet campsite with lovely flat pitches and hedges all around. Good location about 10 mins from Peterborough. Lovely clean toilets and showers. Great price (£10 per night for tent + 2 people)

Even better if reception was open longer than 9-6 (we arrived at 6. 10pm and had to ring for security number to let us in). Could do with shop selling camping basics as there is nothing in walking distance. It was tricky to pay as we were out both days between 8-6:30 and this made campsite owner twitchy that we would not pay (he rang and asked where we were!) But would have happily paid by credit card over the phone if given the chance. Lastly, there was a door marked 'launderette' but it appeared to be locked. I guess this housed the washing up facilities that sadly we had to miss out on.

In summary, nice cheap and clean site that could be so much better with a little bit more customer service.

Reviewer: Adamedwardsteather 30 reviews from this member

 After our curious night at the previous site in Biggleswade, I was a bit more optimistic about this one and I was proved right.

Friendly voice on the intercom and then the gates swung open. Checked in and got the gate code. Shown to the backpackers and cyclists field, surrounded by big hedges and away from the caravans. Shower in the laundry/dishwashing space (so you lock the whole room to use) but really nice as an instant heat electric, not the push button every 30 secs type.

Clean loos in the end of a building. There was also another loo and shower block, plus washing machine in a portakabin by the caravans but we didn't use it as the others were closer. One minor point I have email the owner with is the lack of a mat to stand on when you get out of the shower, so there is a slip risk as you step down on to a smooth tiled floor. But a minor quibble.

An easy ride back to Whittlesey over the river for dinner and a good undisturbed nights sleep.

Not much we could see for kids to do on site, but very close to Flag Fen for history and activities, plus the local cycle routes along the river, so bring the bikes.

Reviewer: Fleetwood2002 1 review from this member

 The site is located about four miles east of Peterborough along North Bank near the Millennium Bridge. Entry is through a secure coded gate access. The site is surrounded by high hedges and trees and is surprisingly quiet. However, I did feel as if I could hear some slight background noise at night from the McCain / Whittlesey Factory area some mile or so south of the site, but this was minimal.

The closest attraction is Flag Fen, as well as Peterborough Cathedral and Burghley House – best check tripadvisor or visitpeterborough for a fuller list.

The site facilities, apart from those advertised, were limited. However, the pitches were flat and there was a water point near the far end pitches at the east. The toilet / shower block (although warm) was outdated and located at the western end of the main camping field. There was also a small hut with some information leaflets of the area, but these seemed limited in what was offered. It was possible to get a good TV reception using an Omnidirectional aerial.

Reception was a through a small canopied window on the side of the house at the entrance.

Overall, generally a pleasant site and we are likely to return.

 Wow! This site has to be one of the quietest I have ever been to! My husband and I felt like we were the only ones there! Definitely a relaxing experience.

The reception closes at six and they prefer you to pre book.

The site is pretty big with conifer trees dividing up the site making the pitches more private. The pitches were spacious and very flat and the grass was in excellent condition.

The hook up was in good working order. We only used the smaller toilet block, the women's was extremely clean and smelt nice too.

We will be coming here again to chill out.

 I highly recommend this campsite. I spent the bank holiday there with my partner and we both had a lovely time. The staff were incredibly helpful and really welcoming. The site itself is situated near a river which is a lovely setting.

I think the site is suitable for people of all ages, we are in our twenties and found things to do, BBQs are allowed and there's access to electricity on each pitch.

The site's very secure and I felt safe coming back late at night.

It's about a £10 taxi from Peterborough town centre with taxis running 24 hours a day. There are super markets no more than 10 minutes drive away.

After reading some of the reviews I was expecting the facilities to be quite poor however they were clean with soap and loo roll constantly stocked up.

I had a great time here and would definitely stay again.
