“Beautiful Place!”
Reviewed 14 September 2020 for a stay in September 2020

Wow what a Jem we found accidentally, had a place already booked 15 minutes away which was awful. We stumbled across this place and couldn't have asked for better. Got a last minute cancellation thank goodness. Very friendly Lady checked us in, lovely smile. Beautiful surroundings, well thought out campsite. Extremely clean. Very quirky, all the pitches have their own names. There are different types of accommodation, Yurts and a luxury Cabin which look amazing. Excellen recycling facilities, ice blocks are available and phone charging for free. Covid precaution all very well organised. The Campsite was so relaxing, we didnt leave it for the 3 days we were there! Will definitely be returning next year!
Thank you. Natasha and Dana

“Fab site”
Reviewed 22 August 2020 for a stay in August 2020

We had a great time camping at mad hatters. The site and owners are welcoming and the facilities are lovely. The covid secure measures appear well thought out.
We stayed in the ehu pitches which meant we could park by our tent, but there are plenty of wheelbarrows provided for those who can’t have their cars.
The walk into Ely is about 5k and took just over an hour with our three children (youngest is 6). Once there we found a lovely park for the children to burn energy off in.
We would definitely recommend this site!

“Maybe just unlucky?”
Reviewed 16 August 2020 for a stay in August 2020

Upon arrival met the owner who was very friendly. We had our temperature checked and given the low down on the site and peg situation.

We where booked into the new field which sadly let the site down as the other cut out pitches would have been much better for three reasons. Firstly the proximity to the toilet block and secondly the new field was extremely windy more so than the main area. It would have been good to maybe have a porter loo or two down there as it was quite a treck to the toilet especially in the night or the rain. Finally the grass/ground if you could even call it that was solid making pegging out interesting.

There was a peg system along with masks for the toilet block however the number of times pegs where left on and very few people wearing masks.

The facilities where clean maybe a little more ventilation in the showers would be good as they where rather damp because the showers are set at a steamy 37c minus one which was hotter and one which was cooler at 33c. The 37c felt much hotter than that and no way to change the temperatures. Could do with some signs pointing to the toilets (there was one very small laminated one so this may be in the pipeline already).

There was a large selection of recycling which is all very well if people follow it. There was also a compost bin which was filled with maggots and not very sanitary (maybe just unlucky due to the hot weather a few days before we arrived).

We walked into Ely on one day, bear in mind you need to climb a steep hill to get up to the side of the river off the road and it was a 3mile walk.

Would we recommend? Probably not especially not the extra field without any changes.

Would we go back? Unless we had something in the area and not in the extra field maybe.

Thank you for taking time to feedback. Just in case other campers read this - we only ever book the overflow once I have explained the location of the area. No guests can book this area - it is only used as an overflow for guests who cannot fit on the main campsite once I have explained the site layout, so I am a little confused how this guest feel they were not warned. I only use this area for campers desperate to get away but cannot find other campsites. The site has wildflowers behind it and in front, the overall area is 2ac of open grass. Families have enjoyed this area for their children - its great for ball games and flying kites.
We explain our peg system to every guest on arrival - we ask guests to stick to our policies, but I am not standing guard at the door all the time.
The showers are checked every month by a qualified plumber to ensure the temperatures are correct.
The compost bin will attract flies in the heat - sometimes the lid is not closed correctly which doesn't help.
Unfortunately we cannot alter the weather - and over the summer we have had a few weather warnings for the whole country. We have planted over 3000 trees on the site and a new hedge - these will take time to grow, but this is listed on the description of the campsite on our website.
