Campsite

General

  • Small level campsite on the edge of Wicken
  • A short walk from Wicken Fen Nature Reserve
  • Toilets, free showers, disabled facilities and free wifi

Ready to get out into the East Anglian countryside? Have a stay at small and level Meadow View Campsite about an hour from London, on the outskirts of the village of Wicken, an easy stroll from the walks of Wicken Fen, and within 10–20 miles of Ely, Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds and feeling clever at Cambridge.

And as you might guess from its moniker, this is a rather greenly set site too. As are the site surounds, within easy walking distance of Wicken Fen Nature Reserve (the first ever property acquired by the National Trust way back in 1899, fact fans) and with the Sustrans National Route 11 running alongside the site for easy pedals into Ely. Walking routes around the village are displayed on the site's noticeboard.

Meadow View has toilets, free hot showers, disabled facilities, a washing-up area and free wifi. The nearest petrol station and supermarkets are in Soham three miles away, while good pub grub and tipples can be had at Wicken's Maids Head pub overlooking one of the village greens.

    Friendly helpful site owner. Proximity to Wicken Fen Nature Reserve. Very reasonable price for the pod and great to be available for one night (most pods are 2 night min). Basic but clean hit shower block, toilet and washing up station.
    Good facilities in pod, kettle, cups, little table etc. More comfortable than camping for very little extra cost. Excellent proximity for National Trust members to Wicken Fen and Anglesey Abbey.

    Disliked: 

    Mattresses looked shabby but ok if you had your own undersheet to cover.

    The site is quiet. The showers although dated were clean and there were several toilets. I stayed in 1980s motorhome. It had electric, oven, firdge and TV which made a pleasant. Wicken fens is a lovely place to visit.

    Disliked: 

    The site is primarily a caravan storage place. Difficult to find in the dark as there is no lighting on entrance.

Local attractions

The fenland village of Wicken has a twelve-sided smock mill, open to the public and still working to grind flour. The village is also the site of Wicken Fen National Nature Reserve, a wetland habitat of fenland, farmland, marsh, and reedbeds that's home to birds, insects and plants like reed warblers, kingfishers and owls, dragonflies, damselflies and over a thousand species of moth, and fen violets, spearworts and water lilies. The reserve has a visitor centre, small café and several walking trails.

Another walk in the area follows the River Lode to Upware, for meals at the splendidly named Five Miles from Anywhere No Hurry Inn, or you could take a bike ride along the river to Ely or along the Lodes Way across open fen countryside to the National Trust-managed Anglesey Abbey. Signposted Sustrans routes also run to Newmarket and Cambridge if you want to pedal further.

For towns and cities, Ely, Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge are all under 20 miles from Meadow View Campsite; London is about an hour's train ride away.
