Walking

There are many options and beautiful walks that can be enjoyed around the campsite. Some of our favourite and most recommended include:

SHORT LOOP – 2.5 miles

Exit campsite (North East corner – behind pitch 37) and head up Stroud Hill on the Footpath.  Turn right at the very top of the Hill and turn right again at the Black Squirrel corner just after the large oak tree.  Follow the footpath zig-zagging to join Fen Road.  Turn left for 50 metres, cross over the road to take footpath on the right heading down hill through a row of trees.  Cross footbridge, turn left and follow footpath around to the right.  Cross the 3rd field to join the Pathfinder Way.  Turn right and keep straight ahead with the ditch on your right until you meet Fen Road again.  Turn right and head back to the camp site on the left.

 

LONG LOOP – 4.5 miles

Turn right out of the campsite entrance and head along Fen Road for approximately ¾ mile past Pidley Bottom until you reach the straight path on the right (old railway line) now Pathfinder Way.  Walk through the golf course, and at the end of the line the path and bridges become a wiggle through bushes.  Look for a right turn in the trees.  Follow the fence line and eventually through a pedestrian gate.  Walk ahead.  Follow clear signs right, then left to a metal gate.  Walk down the track to join Somersham Road.  Turn right on the grass path and walk uphill towards Pidley and the Mad Cat.  Take the footpath opposite the Mad Cat past the oldest cottage in the village.  Follow the footpath to the left until you arrive at Fen Road.  Turn left and in 50 yards cross the road and follow the footpath on the right heading down hill through a row of trees.  Cross footbridge, turn left and follow footpath around to the right.  Cross the 3rd field to join the Pathfinder way.  Turn right and keep straight ahead with the ditch on your right joining up with Fen Road again.  Turn right back to the campsite on the left.

Testimonials

A great rural, peaceful site and perfect setting to explore Cambridgeshire.   There is a lovely restaurant with excellent facilities on the site and we loved walking the dogs around the beautiful lake and tracks.  A very well kept site - we will visit again.

The campsite and its surroundings provided the perfect location for a breakaway, well worth a visit.
