    Hi,

    By way of introduction, I've moved on to a motorhome as a base to take my son to sailing events around the country. It's much better than traveloge-ing!

    Douse anyone know of a wild site near to Grafham Water?

    Hope you can help.

    Welcome to motorhome fun, not from cambridgeshire myself but have often visited as my dad lived there, plenty of places to wild camp and some overnight parking points to so just jump in the motorhome and end up where ever. xxxx Sorry I cant answer your question fully


    Good luck xxx

    Have you tried asking the sailing club if you can use their car park (most sailing clubs have somewhere to park) its m#not as if you are setting up camp if you are attending a sailing meet.

    Thanks for the welcome to the MH fratinity and your observation that the sailing club might be able to offer a base. Unfortunately in this case the training event we’re heading to is at the Grafham Water Centre – which doesn’t permit MH’s on site.

    That said, most, if not all sailing clubs have a relaxed attitude to MH’s parking up on site – as long as you are there for a sailing event.

    Anglican Water have car parks by the lake, but they are barriered off after past traveller encampments It sounds promising that it is an area with stop-overs; but as a newcomer to this would be more confortable if I had somewhere to go to direct.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    you could try Grafham water campsite. Although they are part of the caravan club they have a field that is rarely used and doesn't have electric hookups. May be worth the few pounds they charge for access to the facilities. Their direct phone no is 01480 810264

    Good advice with the Gafham water camping site; indeed that’s where I had intended to stay. Unfortunately the numbers coming to the training event means that they’re fully booked.
