General

  • Private and secure 230-acre site made up of well-maintained grassland
  • Off the A1 and A14, 15 minutes’ drive from Peterborough and Stamford
  • Dog- and family-friendly; 10 minutes from Ferry Meadows in Nene Park

East of England Showground is opening up its grounds to give guests a wild camping experience in Cambridgeshire on 230 acres of well-maintained grassland intersected by roadways. Visitor numbers are kept low at this family-friendly spot for a private and secure feel.

There’s plenty of room for the kids to play sports and the grownups to go for walks on site, plus it’s just 10 minutes’ drive from Ferry Meadows in Nene Park for more outdoor antics. The A1 and A14 are easy to access by car – grand if you’re heading to nearby Stamford or the cathedral city of Peterborough (both 15 minutes). For urban explores a touch further away, Cambridge takes 50 minutes to reach.

Rather seek out things to do closer by? This park in Alwalton is a five-minute drive from paintballing and a golf course.

Dogs are allowed on site, so feel free to bring Fido, and an Elsan point is available to use. Please note that the park does not have toilets or showers.
