General

  • Small level campsite on the edge of Wicken
  • A short walk from Wicken Fen Nature Reserve
  • Toilets, free showers, disabled facilities and free wifi

Ready to get out into the East Anglian countryside? Have a stay at small and level Meadow View Campsite about an hour from London, on the outskirts of the village of Wicken, an easy stroll from the walks of Wicken Fen, and within 10–20 miles of Ely, Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds and feeling clever at Cambridge.

And as you might guess from its moniker, this is a rather greenly set site too. As are the site surounds, within easy walking distance of Wicken Fen Nature Reserve (the first ever property acquired by the National Trust way back in 1899, fact fans) and with the Sustrans National Route 11 running alongside the site for easy pedals into Ely. Walking routes around the village are displayed on the site's noticeboard.

Meadow View has toilets, free hot showers, disabled facilities, a washing-up area and free wifi. The nearest petrol station and supermarkets are in Soham three miles away, while good pub grub and tipples can be had at Wicken's Maids Head pub overlooking one of the village greens.

Please note

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

    Meadow View is a very small but perfect campsite. We were in Soham for a roller hockey tournament so there were a few of us families in tents, the pod, and caravans and we all loved it. One of our friends who had booked a tent pitch, got a phone call offering him a caravan as it had rained heavily, how nice was that?! We were left alone but advised of the number to call should we need anything at all. My husband, me and our two kids, 11 and 9 years stayed in the Christie 2 bed caravan and my other half and our daughter commented afterwards that they could happily live in a caravan like that! We couldn't believe how comfortable the beds were as we've stayed in caravans before which weren't as equipped as this one. There were communal showers, plenty of green space for kids to play and a good shower area, although both caravans had bathrooms. I would thoroughly recommend Meadow View.

    Disliked: 

    The mosquitoes, but I don't suppose you can do anything about them in warm wet weather :) I couldn't get wifi but hadn't bothered to ask and didn't really miss it.

  • Liked: 

    The caravan was large, clean and unsophisticated. It had more "mod cons" than we actually need for a short fine weather stay. Exactly right for Grandma and two small children. The site was quiet and clean. Children particularly liked the limbo gate!

Added facilities to pod - kettle, microwave & tv made this a real find 22/08/2017

    Stayed in the log pod - only staying one night so opted for this instead of putting a tent up. Details on site indicated there would be a bed - this was set up as a sofa on arrival and folded down into a futon bed. Aside the power & lights, the added bonus was a decked area with chairs, a picnic table which was great for breakfast, a kettle & mugs, a microwave, wifi and a tv! A real find. Pod was in a lovely setting and convenient to the toilet block, which was clean and had all the usual facilities. Parking was next to the pod in a special allocated area. A 10-15 min walk to the local pub in the village - a good local (had the football on tv). We had hoped to sample food there but unfortunately they serve everyday except Monday - the night we stayed; however a new co-op service station about 5 min drive away had everything we needed.
    Would definitely stay again - great for "easy" camping.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing - although the wifi signal could be better

Local attractions

The fenland village of Wicken has a twelve-sided smock mill, open to the public and still working to grind flour. The village is also the site of Wicken Fen National Nature Reserve, a wetland habitat of fenland, farmland, marsh, and reedbeds that's home to birds, insects and plants like reed warblers, kingfishers and owls, dragonflies, damselflies and over a thousand species of moth, and fen violets, spearworts and water lilies. The reserve has a visitor centre, small café and several walking trails.

Another walk in the area follows the River Lode to Upware, for meals at the splendidly named Five Miles from Anywhere No Hurry Inn, or you could take a bike ride along the river to Ely or along the Lodes Way across open fen countryside to the National Trust-managed Anglesey Abbey. Signposted Sustrans routes also run to Newmarket and Cambridge if you want to pedal further.

For towns and cities, Ely, Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge are all under 20 miles from Meadow View Campsite; London is about an hour's train ride away.
