Slade Paddock: Walks and punting in Cambridge

General

  • Well-maintained and gated park in a peaceful rural village
  • A 10-minute drive to Ely, 35 to Newmarket and 40 to Cambridge
  • TV room on site; dog-walking track right across the road

Ease yourself into East Anglian explores by sorting a space at Slade Paddock, a well-located and secure gated site in Witcham that's surrounded by scenic walks for ramblers.

This park is a prime spot for pet owners as well as wanderers, with a dog-walking track right across the road for guests bringing their four-legged pals along. History buffs are sorted here too thanks to a bus service that stops just off the local green and whisks you to the stately sights of Cambridge within an hour.

Also in the village is a pub for eats, and barbecues are allowed on the spacious open grounds if you’re keen to rustle up alfresco food. Rather order local grub at a restaurant when evening rolls around? If you fancy dining out, eateries are a 15-minute drive away in Ely, which is also home to top local attractions like Oliver Cromwell’s House.

When you’d prefer to stay on base after dusk, this Cambridgeshire park has a communal TV room for snuggling up in front of the box. Newly added for 2020 are two wetrooms with showers, a washing-up area, and a toilet that's accessible for people with disabilities.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

    Clean and well kept site. Flat pitches. Friendly host. Suited us as we wanted a quiet site without children although it is on a working farm. Just on the outskirts of the village so could walk in to get the bus to Ely. The site facilities looked clean and were heated although were not able to use due to Covid.
    Supermarket 1 1/2 miles away. Walks around the surrounding area from the site.

    'Tag' toilet system - poor husband stood ten minutes as someones tag had been left outside the toilet....probably all night! Wouldn't a bolt on the door be simpler?

From the manager...

Thanks for your comments - we think you have a very valid point about key system and will be installing locks. Kind regards

Directions

Local attractions

Ely (15 minutes’ drive) has endless activities to keep you entertained: head to this town to roam around the cracking cathedral and stained-glass museum before leaping onto a Liberty Belle Cruises boat at Ship Lane to bob along the Great Ouse river.

Fancy a flutter? Newmarket (35 minutes) is known for being the birthplace of horse racing, so it’s a must-visit spot for equestrian types. Peer at the high-tech displays in Palace House’s National Horseracing Museum, timing your visit to the town just right to catch a fixture at the renowned racecourse afterwards.

If you’re hot on history, you’ll want to amble around Anglesey Abbey (35 minutes) and admire the artworks before covering some of the 98 acres of grounds during a stroll. Wander to Wimpole Hall (40 minutes) later on, stopping to fawn over the farm animals that live here, then eye up the aviation displays – an old Concorde plane included – at the Imperial War Museum Duxford (40 minutes).

Many of East Anglia’s other absorbing attractions are in Cambridge (40 minutes): think a series of stunning colleges, fab art galleries like the Fitzwilliam Museum and pleasant punting on the River Cam.
