- Fishing on the Great Ouse river from the site's riverbank
Cor – what a waterside view. And all served up with a big dollop of peace and quiet, as Riverside Caravan and Camping Park is an adults-only site (sorry kids, sometimes the grownups just need a bit of their own space).
Being on the banks of the Great Ouse river gives guests easy access to waterside walks, including long ones all the way into Ely (two hours or so) and shorter stumbles to the nearest riverside pub (10 minutes). The wide, calm river is also an excellent place to launch a canoe, and has plenty of fishing spots in which to try your luck with the perch, pike, carp and roach that lurk in the waters (permits are available on site for a small extra fee).
Kids there may not be but you’re welcome to bring well-behaved dogs on a lead, as long as they’re not likely to harass the chickens that roam freely around the site (and provide eggs that you can buy for your brekkie). There’s plenty of space along the river for the pups to run gleefully free.
No noisy ents and activities here to distract from the peaceful vibe, but plenty of useful bits and bobs to make life easy: electrical hookups, free hot showers and a wifi connection. Nearby Littleport has all sorts of amenities too, including a train station, supermarket, butcher, baker and the all-important chippie.
Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.
This site has no on-site toilet and shower facilities.
This is an adults-only site. Children under the age of 16 are not allowed on site.
Discount cards and gift vouchers cannot be applied to bookings made via Pitchup.com.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

This is a fab place if you love a bit of a walk – start out with a riverside walk direct from the site, safe in the knowledge that, however far you roam, there’s a pint of real ale and some tasty food waiting at the Swan on the River pub just a few minutes from base.
Elsewhere nearby, there are more trails to follow at the WWT Welney wetland centre, 10 minutes’ drive away, or Thetford Forest Park, half an hour away. For a blast of sea air, you can reach the north Norfolk coast in 45 minutes or so.
Take a trip into Ely (15 minutes’ drive) to visit the cathedral, with its 14th-century octagonal tower, and wander round the stained glass museum. There are boat trips and canoe hire to be had here too if you’d like to take to the waterways, or you could head to Cambridge (45 minutes) to try out your punting skills.
