General

  • Peaceful Cambridgeshire bell tent village next to Grafham Water
  • Aqua park and bike hire five minutes' drive away
  • Activities on site including ropes courses, climbing and bike tracks

Designed to provide families and friends with a weekend break or active holiday escape, the bell tent village at Grafham Water Centre sits in the Cambridgeshire countryside near Huntingdon. Set on the banks of Grafham Water Reservoir, the location has some lovely views for downtime as well as being a great base for sports-mad groups who can spend heaps of time on outdoor activities and water-based antics.

Down-to-earth facilities include an outdoor kitchen and washing-up facilities, with heated toilet and shower provision available in the sports hall, a short walk from the bell tents (the pathway is lit up at night). On request, you can store valuables in lockers at the sports hall, and there is plenty of parking available on site (good news for anyone bringing along a car packed with sports kit…).

Activities available on site include ropes courses, a public mountain bike track, lakeside walks and climbing courses on floating inflatables. When you’re in need of relaxation, there’s a pub within five minutes’ walk of the tent village.

    The site had everything that we needed for camping .
    It has a communal kitchen, toilets and showers close by and a fire pit that all could share .

    Disliked: 

    Our tent was the only Tent that was slightly broken .
    The entrance to the tent didn’t have a pole in so it was really low when walking into the tent.
    But We did get help to adjust it slightly.

    Site was nice. Tents were big. Mattresses were a good size. Ping pong table kids loved. Toilet block nice and close.

    Disliked: 

    Other campers didn't clean the grill after using it. My lights in my tent didn't work. Only one fridge for 10 tents. Traveling with 1year olds had milk to store. Not enough bins and other campers also seemed unsure.of how to empty them so fell on my party each Time. No hot water for showers or washing up.

    The tent was great. Mattresses comfortable. We were located near the tents of our companions.

    Disliked: 

    No hot water. Battery packs for fairy lights easily disassembled by our 1 year old. The shared cooking facility was dirty. We cleaned after use but others didn't. Small fridge for potentially 10 families.
