The campsite for 2018 is now closed.
If you’re after a room with a view, you’ll find it at Sacrewell, which overlooks some of the most beautiful countryside in Cambridgeshire.
With entrance to the farm included in your booking, Sacrewell is the perfect place for families and holidaymakers to stay.
If you’re a glamper and can’t do without your comforts, there are 27 electric hook-up points. For those who prefer an authentic night under canvas (or in a caravan, camper van or motor home), there are 48 spacious grass pitches.
Take a look through the sections, below, and if there’s anything else you’d like to know please don’t hesitate to get in touch where we’ll be more than happy to help. The campsite is closed between November and February.
We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful campsite and hope you enjoy your stay.

How to find us
Sacrewell is just off the A1/A47 interchange at Wansford. Most satnavs take you to the wrong entrance, so check the directions on our getting here page before you set off.
Checking in and Out
Your pitch is available after 1pm – but please ensure that you have booked in advance. If you’re arriving during Sacrewell’s open hours, call in at reception and they will check you in. If you’re arriving after 6pm, you will need the barrier code to get into the site. The code will have been sent to you in advance of your stay. Our night warden, David, lives in the large green static caravan on site and is available from 6pm to 8am. He will be happy to help you with anything you need.
Your welcome pack, which you will collect on arrival, includes wristbands which we ask you to wear throughout your stay. Please show your wristband to the reception team each time you enter the farm.
You are welcome to stay with us for up to seven nights, subject to availability.
You’re required to vacate your pitch by 12pm on the final day of your stay, to allow our next happy campers to settle in without any delays.
Electric hook-up pitches are clearly numbered – refer to your camp site map or ask a member of staff if you are unsure of where to pitch. If you are setting up a caravan or campervan, make sure your vehicle is set parallel (long ways) to the electric hook-up point.
Visitors without electric hook-up are welcome to choose where on the allocated field area they would like to pitch. Please allow a six metre gap between your unit and your neighbour’s unit.
If you need any help, ask at reception or contact the night warden.
