Crystal Lakes Caravan Park

This site does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Dog-friendly Cambridgeshire site with 12 acres of meadowland and lakes
  • A 25-minute drive from Cambridge and 35 minutes to Ely; access to A14
  • Carp and coarse fishing lakes; restaurant, shop and kids' centre

What will you reel in first? With carp and coarse fishing on site, and the surrounding Cambridgeshire countryside, it could be a big catch or a haul of memorabilia… or photos of otters and swans at local nature reserves or all the family in front of a mighty cathedral. Set over 12 acres of meadowland and with two small mature fishing lakes on site, Crystal Lakes Caravan Park is a secluded family-friendly and dog-friendly site that's still within reach of a couple of urban areas: it's 10 minutes’ drive from Huntingdon and 25 minutes from Cambridge, with easy access to the A14.

Eggs sunny side up or burgers by the bun? Find whichever option gets your tummy rumbling 10 minutes’ walk away in Fenstanton village centre, which has a butcher, two general stores, bakery and newsagent. There are also shops selling fresh garden produce and free-range eggs, an excellent fish and chip shop and a village pub.

If you need to work up an appetite for all that food, hit the nearby cycle paths or public footpaths (there are over 600 miles of public footpaths around, as well as the RSPB reserve at Fen Drayton Lakes).

Facilities back at base include a laundry area, plus spacious toilets, showers and hand basins, all supplied with free hot and cold water. Kids can play games, run about on the recreation field or sign up for various antics at the activity centre on site (entry charge applies as this is run by a different company).

And of course fishing will surely keep you busy… there’s a small daily charge for that, with carp, tench, pike, bream and others to hook out of the two lakes.

    Nice site close to A14, but far enough away to not hear the traffic. Some good walks nearby and plenty of fishing opportunities if that’s what you like. Level pitches and plenty of space to walk dogs. Facilities were clean and functional. Nice smokehouse takeaway on site should you not want to cook.

    Disliked: 

    Some areas of the site (away from the pitch we had) were untidy with building materials etc

    I liked Crystal lakes because there were lovely lakes with lily on it. The toilets and showers were very clean. They also had a fabulous large bbq area.

    Also I went along a lovely walk by a nearby river and next day walked to the quaint village.

    Had a great time.
    Thank you.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Martini or tonic? Pick your poison at the Roundwood Distillery (20 minutes’ drive), where gin is the speciality. Beforehand, line your stomach with goodies sourced from the local market town, Huntington (10 minutes).

Welcome to cathedral city… Ely (half an hour) is known as much for its rosy-cheeked gin as it is for its sky-high cathedral and stained glass museum. The cities are pretty imposing here, as Cambridge (25 minutes) is full of learning… master the art of punting on the river Cam or eye up modern art at the museums.

Switch modern artefacts for jumbo jets at Britain’s largest aviation museum, Imperial War Museum Duxford (25 minutes). Then, bring things back down to earth at Houghton Mill (15 minutes), a National Trust site with tea rooms, canoeing and cycling at the final remaining mill on the river Ouse.

Less for canoeing and more for wildlife spotting, RSPB Fen Drayton Lakes (10 minutes) harbours more waterways, frequented by otters, geese, ducks and swans.

Must see

  • Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial (8.1 miles)
  • Kings College Chapel (10.7 miles)
  • Scudamore's Punting Company (10.8 miles)
