General

  • Secluded setting in a carefully managed wildlife haven
  • Bushcraft classes in fire lighting, shelter building and more
  • Communal firepit area and bacon/sausages for sale

Ever been to a site which is so good you just want to keep it under wraps? Wend your stealthy way to exceedingly popular The Secret Garden Touring Park in Cambridgeshire’s Fenlands, with accommodation in a green countryside setting within a two-acre garden.

You'll spy all sorts of little touches that keep guests coming back: much like the local and migrant wildlife regularly flutters to the flowers and shrubs of the garden, all meticulously developed over years by owners Neil and Lesley to draw in nearby birds, butterflies and beasts like jays, woodpeckers, stoats and hares. The site also has its own herd of Gloucester Old Spot pigs and a flock of cheery chickens.

Not quite undercover enough for you? Take one of the site’s bushcraft and survival classes to pick up skills in fire lighting, shelter building and other crafty activities; show off your skills later in the communal firepit area by cooking up some of the locally made bacon and sausages for sale in the site shop.

Other little touches at The Secret Garden include regular sausage and beer tasting sessions, an on-site distillery, a games room and a ‘hobbit hill’ for the kids to hide out in. All guests have access to two modern shower and toilet blocks, and the kitchen with laundry facilities.

    Beautifully set up campsite with plenty of space & noise muffling foliage (containing lots of big juicy blackberries) between the generously sized pitches. Feeling of privacy was ideal. Plenty of green spaces for exuberant play / meandering walks. Staff were very friendly, amenities were very good and well maintained. Didn't use or even enquire into the existence of WiFi

    Disliked: 

    Could do with a slightly wider range of produce in the shop

    Everything, it’s was only 2 nights but we had a great time on site. Staff are very friendly and helpful, toilets and showers were clean. Quiet and well looked after site with a lot of wildlife around.
    The added fire pit was a nice touch and the ability to take more fire wood even after the shop is closed and pay later was really nice.
    The sausage, cider and gin tasting was really nice and all very tasty.
    Pitch size was huge, nice that it’s enclosed and made to feel private.

Local attractions

Wisbech, Cambridgeshire’s biggest town, is two and a half miles away and has a good selection of museums, shops and Georgian architecture to view (Dickens fans might recognise some of the town’s buildings from the Beeb’s adaptation of David Copperfield from 1999).

Octavia Hill's birthplace house and museum, celebrating the many good deeds of this Wisbech woman, is also in the town, or you could reach heady heights at the Fenland and North Norfolk Aviation Museum to see aircraft and displays from across the ages.

The National Trust’s Peckover House in Wisbech has great gardens (and croquet on the lawn), as does local brewery Elwood’s, with four acres of greenery as well as a maze to get lost in. Both the RSPB reserve at Ouse Washes in Manea and the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust at Welney in Norfolk are within 15–20 miles if your whistle has been whetted by the wildlife watching on site at The Secret Garden; take a trip around the lakes of the Fens or east to the Norfolk Broads for more species spotting from boat and shore.

Within driving distance for day trips you can also reach Cambridge and Ely to the south, Norwich to the east and the scenic seaside towns of Hunstanton, Wells-next-the-Sea and Sandringham to the north, or drive a little further to reach Skegness and Great Yarmouth.
