Meadow View campsite welcomes tents, caravans and motor homes. The small, level site has grass and hard-standing spaces, electric hook-up points, and free toilets and showers. Dogs are also free.
In addition, we have a log pod which can sleep four people and comes equipped with a futon, bunks for children and a television. There is also a static caravan available to rent.
The site is situated on the edge of Wicken which has a rare twelve-sided smock mill, a picturesque duck pond and a number of thatched properties. The latter includes the local pub, the Maids Head, which serves a good range of food.
Within easy walking distance of the campsite is Wicken Fen Nature Reserve, the first-ever property acquired by the National Trust in 1899. It has a visitor centre, a small cafe and various walking trails.
There are many other walking opportunities in the locality: one pleasant stroll follows the Lode to the hamlet of Upware where you can enjoy a meal at the Five Miles from Anywhere/No Hurry Inn.
Wicken is ideally placed to explore the countryside of East Anglia. The small city of Ely which is dominated by its cathedral, 'The Ship of the Fens', is 10 miles away as is Newmarket, the historic home of horse racing. Both are served by several high street stores as well as Tesco and Waitrose.
The City of Ely:
Ely is a small city in the heart of the Fens. The cathedral may dominate its skyline but Ely has a lot more to offer: there are markets (a weekly market, as well as a farmers' market and collectables/craft market, the latter two on alternate Saturdays), museums, art galleries and waterside walks.
Nestling on the Suffolk-Cambridgeshire border Newmarket is both the historical home and the current powerhouse of British horse racing.
Even if you have never visited Cambridge, it has still touched your life as the place that inspired Darwin, Newton, AA Milne, Wordsworth, John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Eric Idle and Stephen Hawking. Today it is a vibrant place to visit offering culture, history, entertainment and retail therapy.
