Bridge House Meadows: Our pitch with only 2 other campers in the meadow

General

  • Peaceful adults-only site with meadows, a woodland and river views
  • A 15-minute drive from Ely and 25 minutes from Cambridge
  • A mile and a half from the village stores, post office and local pub

Ready for hols touring the East Anglian fens? There's plenty of scope for outdoorsy wanders at Bridge House Meadows – this peaceful adults-only Cambridgeshire spot is right in the middle of England's big sky country and surrounded by coastal plains. Jaunts to nearby cultural hubs can also be sorted – 'tis rare indeed to have two such fine historic cities on your doorstep, but at Bridge House Meadows you can visit Ely's ancient cathedral (15 minutes' drive) or Cambridge's punts, quads and colleges (25 minutes) and still be back in time for tea. 

There's plenty to admire on site here, too – meadows, a woodland and river views all add up to a fine backdrop for stays at this quiet, back-to-basics park. Bridge House Meadows is all about restful stays in the open air (the fact that there are no noisy tots within earshot certainly helps with the restful part). This comely rural spot has a mix of habitats, so make sure to keep an eye out for visiting wildlife as you wander or take deckchair time. 

The site keeps facilities low key so as not to detract from the wild surrounds, but it's easier than you might think to venture out to the outside world – this seemingly remote spot is about a mile and a half from the village of Stretham, where there's a pub, post office, basic food shop and takeaway. Well-behaved dogs are welcome on site.

    We liked the location, right on the river, lovely walking either way. Met some really nice people, owners really nice and friendly, other campers and also spoke to narrowboat owners. Perfect location for walking our dog. Only one toilet which you can use to empty chemical toilet but that was fine with us and it was nice and clean. Can't fault the site, will definitely be returning.

Directions

Local attractions

Cambridgeshire, as a rule, is a pretty flat place, so don't hesitate to bring your bike along on stays here – there's little chance of getting puffed out pedalling uphill. Riverside rambles are also on the cards: head south from the site along the river Great Ouse if you fancy strolling down to the pub at the Lazy Otter Marina (you can also drive there in about five minutes). 

Nearby Ely (15 minutes) has its own waterside area, where restaurants, pubs and art galleries are spaced out along the river. After a spot of lunch, a cream tea or maybe just a bit of window shopping, wander down into town to admire the cathedral or explore Civil War history at Oliver Cromwell's House. There's also a popular market here on Thursdays and at weekends. 

Cambridge (25 minutes) has a similar small-town vibe to Ely, but the city is also home to some world-class museums (if you're pressed for time, head to the Fitzwilliam). Green-fingered guests should also take the chance to explore Cambridge University Botanic Gardens and peruse some of the 8,000 plants on show.

Must see

  • Wicken Fen National Nature Reserve (3.4 miles)
  • Ely Cathedral (4.8 miles)
  • Anglesey Abbey, Gardens and Lode Mill (6.7 miles)
