We stayed for two nights, our son and family stayed for one night. Lovely campsite with spectacular view of the surrounding countryside and Ely Cathedral. Facilities well thought out and clean and tidy. Would definitely recommend and we will return as long as there is availabil
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
We have a brilliant stay here, I couldn't recommend it enough. The communication throughout the booking was fantastic. The site was brilliant with great facilities all covid systems have been applied.
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!
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.
