Touring pitches overlooking the river

General

  • Well-stocked fishing lake covering five acres
  • In Cambridgeshire countryside bordered by the River Nene
  • Bordering the villages of Yarwell and Nassington

Now this is fishing on a grand scale…There’ll be no angling for a good spot at Yarwell Mill Country Park, bordered by the serene River Nene: the well-stocked fishing lake here covers five acres, so you're sure to find a solitary spot in which to settle down.

Or just sit dreamily over a book if that's your bag instead: the park is set in calm Cambridgeshire countryside and will have those looking for a relaxing holiday hooked line and sinker.

Facilities here are hassle-free: clean showers and toilets are well lit at night, and there's also a washing-up area. The village of Yarwell is on the edge of the park for real ale and pub grub at the Angel Inn; if you need to stock up on any fishy essentials, the fishing tackle shop Sheltons is in Peterborough, 20 minutes’ drive away.

A beautiful, picturesque site but spoilt by Bob the Builder21/09/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomDAWN M.Confirmed

  • Electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    This is a lovely park with fabulous ponds and it is right on the river Nene. The pitches are spacious and the staff are very friendly. There is good security to the site and some great walks.

    The shower block and toilets are clean and you have a whole spacious shower room to yourself which includes your own toilet/sink and plenty of space for hanging and moving around. Watching the Jackdaws and Crows take off each evening was quite spectacular and the geese and swans would visit regularly.

    I would certainly return but probably not while the building work is still taking place.

    Disliked: 

    Building work! sadly there were lorries constantly coming and going clattering around up and down the roads and building work was taking place with diggers and lorries moving around kicking up dust as there are some new mobile homes/lodges due to be sited, as this is also a static site. Staff had commented that this did not take place at the weekend but I have just returned and work was being done throughout the day Saturday, however not on Sunday thankfully. Such a shame as it spoilt an otherwise idyllic site.

Good site with clean facilities, level pitches and great walks21/09/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAbigail K.Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass pitch

  • Liked: 

    Upon on arrival there was plenty of parking so that you could check into reception. Reception area was set up correctly for social distancing and I waited a few minutes to check in, was given a map and friendly directions.

    Easy to locate the large camping field at the rear of the park, a row of electric pitches separate the two fields. It was free choice of where you could pitch if your not electric, however you need to consider that the mowers and seasonal pitches need space.

    Noted park security driving through early evening, which is always reassuring.

    Bathroom facilities were clean and tidy, and I noted they were being cleaned in the morning after the peak showering times which is ideal to ensure they are clean for the remainder of the day. Easy access taps, and drinking water stations, with washing up facilities.

    You can access a variety of footpaths and bridles way directly from the site, and you can walk to Yarwell Station to take the Nene Valley Way train.

    A dog walking field which was a pleasant surprise, however dogs must be kept on leads. Overall the site was very dog friendly.

    Disliked: 

    The only downside I would note is the building works, however this didn't particularly affect us at the weekend part from the dust, however I would imagine during the week it would be different story.

Local attractions

Bring your boots: the countryside surrounding Yarwell Mill and Yarwell village is packed with scenic walks and quiet villages to explore, including Wansford and Nassington, and the historic town of Stamford is six miles away with its timber-framed buildings, medieval churches and 17th- and 18th-century stone buildings to point the camera at.

The 117-mile Nene Way passes through Peterborough and also takes in the ancient market town of Oundle, 12 miles to the south west; the Sulehay Nature Reserve, covering walks around the ancient forest of Sulehay, the Stonepit Quarry and the woods and fields of Ring Haw is just to the west of Yarwell (there’s some parking at the entrance to the forest on the Wansford to Yarwell road).

For resting your feet, jump onto the Nene Valley Steam Railway, which has been puffing along since 1845 and which runs for seven and a half miles along the river; join it at Wansford for the girder bridge trip across the Nene or go loco and book a Driver Experience.

Then track along to the historic village of Fotheringhay, said by a historian to have ‘been distinguished beyond any other place in Britain, except the Capital, by the aggravated misfortunes of Royalty’; Mary Queen of Scots and Elizabethan Elizabeth are just two blue-blooded types associated with the village, although Liz was slightly luckier in that she wasn’t executed at Fotheringhay Castle.

Potter in and around Peterborough too for heaps of historical highlights such as 17th-century Elton Hall, the medieval manor house Longthorpe Hall and the Grade I listed Thorpe Hall. Or, you could decide to be thoroughly contrary and modern and book a skydive at Peterborough’s Sibson Airfield.

Must see

  • Burghley House (5.7 miles)
  • Peterborough Cathedral (7.4 miles)
  • Barnsdale Gardens (13.0 miles)

National Trust

  • Lyveden New Bield (9.3 miles)
  • Woolsthorpe Manor (19.2 miles)
