Meadow View Campsite: 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.

Good caravan with helpful owners04/01/2022

Reviewer's country: United Kingdomstuart p.Confirmed

  • Mags 2 bedroom static caravan
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The caravan was spacious and well equipped. It was nice to have a few extras, like toilet roll and hand towels. Peter was very helpful and quick to sort out the pilot light on the boiler when it went out. The campsite is no-frills, but is wonderfully situated for those who like the outdoors. If you go through the path at the back of the site, you are straight on to National Cycle Route 11.

Pleasant site friendly staff fairly level pitches very unclean facilit15/11/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomSally C.Confirmed

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

    The site is actually very pleasant, compact and bijoux, some nice walks around the area but it would be preferable to have transport to get around. Good cycle track at the back of the site taking you directly to Ely which is a really lovely area to visit.

    Disliked: 

    The toilet and showering facilities were old desperately requiring an upgrade. They were never cleaned the whole weekend we were on site. They are disgustingly dirty and we refused to use them. In view of the amount you pay to pitch up here you do not expect to have to clean the toilets and showers yourself, if the prior person hasn't you wont use the facilities! had the pitch been £10 per night it would have been value for money and the facilities would have been ignored but not for £24 per night.

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.
