 Excellent site and well maintained facilities in a good location.

Approach is a bit tricky through narrow streets and kerbside parking, although some of the issues caused by roadworks.

Riverside access is a bonus and quite unique for a town site.

 Having moved on from the Hertford C&C site we arrived in the 1pm rush hour but didn't have to queue for long. There were plenty of staff to move people along reasonably quickly.

Our warden (older chap, possibly the manager) was friendly and helpful in advising us on pitches. We were warned about access to the site and it was tortuous through a housing estate.

The site is located on the river but as the towpath is public, the site is accessible to anyone.

The toilet block keypads were out of action therefore open to all. Facilities were kept clean although in one block on one occasion there was a large wet patch near the basins which wasn't cleaned up immediately.

The site is walking distance into St Neots and great for kayaking, paddle boarding, boating and fishing.

The site was very busy with a lot of changeover which made it feel very impersonal.

Most campers were friendly, the washing up area being the place to chat whilst doing those mundane chores.

 Fab site by the river, although if the wind drops you may get bitten. The only negative is the public footpath and early morning dog walkers talking loudly on their phones as they walk past tents! Wifi is a bit iffy and kept dropping out, but that's a minor issue.

Everything spotless and staff the friendly club people you would expect. The site was pretty full and we heard from several people that they come back regularly as they like it.

We hired a boat for the morning from the hire based 15 mins walk up the river from the site and also made good use of the local cycle paths. You can cycle from the station to the campsite entirely off road and the lifts at the station make getting bikes on and off trains a bit easier.

National Route 12 north to Huntingdon via Grafham Water and south to Sandy and Biggleswade is close by. We cycled south to Tempsford to see the memorial to the SOE agents (many of whom were women and flew out never to return) and then on the the SOE barn, the building the agents collected their parachutes from before flying out in the Lysanders.

If you want to see a Lysander, the Shuttleworth air museum is a good visit. It has a superb garden for anyone who finds too many aircraft a bit too much. It has a good cafe.

There are chinese and indian takeaways within a 15 min walk.

 This is one of our regular sites and each time it is just as good as the last time.

On this occasion the site was full but the facilities and everything else were still up to standard.

This time we had a very pleasant grass pitch with no electric, down by the river.

The TV signal was good, 4g was weak and site WiFi was only just in range of our unit.

There is an easy walk into St Neots in one direction and The Rivermill pub in the other direction.

The site is easily accessed provided you follow the signed route and the arrival times advised by the site.

 We absolutely loved this site and wished we could have stayed longer. We were very lucky with the weather as it very hot (probably too hot as we didn't put the awning up as we weren't there that long so had no shade and had to go out and buy a parasol) but everything was perfect.

We had a great pitch (no. 75) which was really close to the river so we were able to sit and watch the boats go by and watch people attempting to launch canoes which proved difficult for some as the water level had dropped due to no rain.

Also close to us was a footpath that went through a wooded area and then into a beautiful park which in turn led to St Neot's itself (where there is a Waitrose for supplies) so we didn't need to use the car at all; we went for lunch in St Neot's one day and managed to get a table overlooking the beautiful river and then stopped and listened to some live music in the park on the way back.

We had planned on going to Cambridge but we didn't bother - we've been before and it was so hot that we decided to just stay and chill in the local area.

It is like an oasis of a campsite - you would never believe there was a housing estate just before you enter as you feel like you are in the middle of the countryside. Going the other way on the footpath takes you to a weir where there is a lovely pub though I've forgotten the name. Plenty of walking to be had for our dog but it was so hot - thank goodness, we took our water mister for him as it got a lot of use.

The toilet blocks are probably the cleanest I have ever seen and when they are cleaning them, you can take a short walk through the site to an identical toilet block located near Reception (they are cleaned at different times).

You mustn't arrive before 1. 00pm on the day of arrival - this is really important as otherwise, you would block the lane in waiting for the pitches to be ready. We were able to choose our pitch so we asked for somewhere quiet, not too far from the toilet block and near the river.

The man who showed us to our pitch on his bike was super friendly and also gave us lots of tips on where to go, we weren't rushed at all even though it was a busy time and he really made us feel like we had gone on holiday - a lovely welcome. I wish I had taken a note of his name as he was excellent.

Only one slight gripe and that is that the bins were right near the entrance but it wasn't too much of a problem for us as we went via the bins when we took our dog for a walk. Oh and there's no shop which would have been nice.

We are definitely going again - in fact, we are trying to fit in another trip before the season is over. Fingers crossed!

 This site gave us exactly what we wanted for a few days away. It is so peaceful.

The site staff are all very friendly and helpful. The facilities are spotless. The campsite is clean and tidy.

We were given the choice of three pitches. (HS EHU) shown to our pitch. We never return to a camp site, but we are going to make this one the exception.

We will return.

We were happy with the cost of our five nights. ST Neots is just a couple of miles away. Lots of places to eat out. Take aways are near by.

Not sure if it is a usual thing, but an ice cream van was let onto the site, very welcome in the recent hot weather. Already looking forward to our next visit to this lovely site.

The only negative…. Our stay was too short. Thanks St Neots for a relaxing holiday.

 Another well kept Camping And Caravanning Club Site next to the River Great Ouse which runs alongside the site, with the occasional river cruisers passing by.

I had an enjoyable 3 nights there on a grass only pitch with water, laundry and toilet blocks all close to hand.

The grounds were always being checked by the members of staff and those members of staff that I had occasion to speak with were extremely amicable and a joy to talk with.

St Neots has a lovely high street with a wide variety of shops available and there are plenty of eating out venues close by. Grafham Water is not too far away and 'The Offords' also is nearby and they both offer walking or cycling route options.

The cost of my 3 night stay was just £28 (with age concession) and if I had to have a small gripe it would be the traffic noise from the A1 that becomes apparent at night time as the site quietens down after 11pm, but that's not anything the site can be responsible for and probably only really affects tent dwellers as Caravan & Motorhome users are more insulated.

All in all, a great campsite with well kept grounds, conscientious and friendly staff, great facilities and close to the town for eating out and shopping.

Well worth staying and enjoying the surroundings.

 Easy access to St Neots C&CC Site from either the M11 or A1 then follow the Club directions and brown camping signs and not your SATNAV.

The route appears strange as you are driving through a housing estate but don't be concerned the site is at the end of the road just past the car park.

We received a nice welcome and were allowed to choose from several pitches so we chose a nice hardstanding one down by the river. The site is very spacious and open with a nice river aspect.

There are both hardstanding and grass pitches with electrics but there are no fully serviced pitches. However there is an excellent Motorhome Service Point and various water and waste points around the site.

It has two facilities blocks but the riverside one was closed when we visited. We prefer to use the shower and washing facilities in our motorhome so not an issue for us but the facilities block that was open was never crowded.

Our main reason for visiting this site is the easy walk into St. Neots through the park which takes about 10-15 mins. Wardens will tell you the easiest way to go.

St Neots is a lovely small town with lots of restaurants, pubs and tea rooms. We tried and would recommend Poppy's Tea Room, Betty Bumbles Tea Room and the Il Girasole all were excellent.

Overall a very nice site in a excellent location.

We will definitely visit again soon and next time we will walk the other way towards the locks which we were told is lovely with a very good pub.

Reviewer: PedroPete61 31 reviews from this member

 This is my last outing for the year? and I have returned here last visit 2018. The town has changed as others but the location is excellent.

On the banks of the river with fishing on site( with Permit) Swans, Ducks and fish to feed if you so wish.

Plenty of walking with or without Dogs, pubs and restaurants within walking and fish/ chip shops nearby.

Walking or driving to town your choice. Spread out site clean and tidy where matters, all kept clean by wardens, shortage of dog bins for poo.

Must watch out for high water in river but normally ok.

Plenty of things close by including Duxford located close on M11
