General

  • Peaceful family-friendly site 20 minutes' walk from Ramsey town centre
  • Half an hour's drive from the Nene Valley Railway; 40 minutes from Ely
  • Playground, space for games and river frontage for seasonal fishing

Hankering after a country getaway but fearful of being stranded far from life’s useful amenities? Fret not, for it’s possible that Rivermill Touring Caravan and Camping Park’s nifty location may have the compromise you’re after.

Yes, this is a place where you can settle to enjoy a peaceful break in the Fens, fishing in the river that passes by the site, trotting out on to the footpaths that cross the local area or just putting your feet up with a beer in one hand and binoculars in the other to see what wildlife you can spot (muntjac deer, red kites, kestrels and kingfishers are among the creatures that sometimes call by).

And then when you need to head out, you can do so most easily – no need even to get in the car if you wish, as it’s a mere 20-minute toddle into Ramsey’s historic town centre for pubs, restaurants, banks and the like, with a sizeable supermarket even closer for foodie supplies. Should the rural pace of life leave you unwilling even to trot that far, local takeaways are happy to deliver up here.

If you’ve brought nippers who don’t believe in relaxing times, you’ll be chuffed to see there’s a playground on site, along with plenty of space for them to hare about and tire themselves out.

Rivermill is an unoccupied site, but it has a security gate.

    We stayed with young children in the shepherd hut - it is very cosy. x , we had the double bed and sofa bed - there was just enough space to put a travel cot in as well.

    The shepherds hut was well equipped - mugs / cutlery and plates etc... we also used the microwave / kettle. The Tesco is very close so if you need anything else you can get it from there.

    It certainly beats a tent, the weather was pretty good so we didn't get the full benefit of not putting a tent away in the rain....

    We found it a good base to see local attractions etc.. We went to the The Raptor Foundation which was pretty good . Staying for a couple of days was great.

Local attractions

You need not roam far to hit the local leisure facilities – Ramsey has not one but two golf courses, and a sports centre with a sizeable pool and a lengthy list of kids’ activities throughout the summer hols.

Looking a little further afield, a good day out can be had at the Raptor Foundation, 20 minutes away, meeting the birds of prey in their rehab centre and watching flying displays. There are also wild beasts galore (including kangaroos and big cats) over at Hamerton Zoo Park, half an hour away.

Train buffs will likely want to roll along to the Nene Valley Railway, half an hour away, where vintage steam and diesel trains run to Yarwell or Peterborough. Come along at the right time and you might even see Thomas the Tank Engine putting in a guest appearance. Closer to home, the Fenland Light Railway, 10 minutes away, runs miniature trains that are perennially popular with the tinies.

If you're more into your historic buildings, it's worth making the 40-minute drive to Ely for its cathedral, stained glass museum and Oliver Cromwell's House.

Must see

  • Peterborough Cathedral (9.3 miles)
  • Ely Cathedral (16.5 miles)
  • Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial (18.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Houghton Mill (9.2 miles)
  • Peckover House and Garden (17.8 miles)
