The Eco-Campsite. Our History of this Campsite.

Summer Activities

 If you want to relax and enjoy  a very natural  rural campsite, to read or walk or fish or look at Birds, Cattle, Sheep, Ponies, then you will find it here.

We have on the Campsite, for no charge, a Bird Hide, Fridges  Freezers, and some games.

Karma farm has been farming ecologically from 1983, rearing cattle, sheep, pigs and chickens over the years as well as growing a variety of crops. In 2008 we started the small campsite in one of our peaceful meadows near the river bank.      Many campers return due to the peaceful, quiet and casual nature here, and have a discount on camping fees.  The river Lark and its flood plain is great for bird life (see below picture). The location is perfect for walking, canoeing, fishing, bird watching, cycling and a range of other activities perfect for the whole family.

 

Since new regulations to control the Pandemic, each Yurt has a campsite shower, but due to the virus, all other campers may use their own solar shower bags in some fresh open air screened off areas, also each group has use of  their own lockable toilet, and a washbasin. We have limited camping spaces available, just 5 electric hook up pitches but many well spaced and private  “non electric hook up” Tent or Camper van pitches. We like  small groups together but remember a condition is no loud noises after 11 pm, please.

 There is plenty to visit and do in the local area: Isleham village has a 930 year old Priory and a 500 year old church. Three good pubs, a well stocked Co-op, a Chinese take away, a hairdresser, and a good sports field where cricket and football are often played.

Ely Cathedral is visible from the river bank which is next to the campsite. ( seen in this photo). Only 15 minutes drive away is the home of horse racing, Newmarket. Slightly further away is the fabulous tourist destination of Cambridge one of the most popular historical cities in England- where one can enjoy a punt on the river cam, or visit the Fitzwilliam museum and one of the colleges of Cambridge university.

The river Lark is 100 meters from the campsite and fishing and canoeing are possible in the slow waters of a fen land river.

Most years we have several Avocets hatch some chicks on the wet land you see in this photograph, also Swans and Godwits and Little Ring Plovers and Barn Owls. Some local bird watchers think Isleham is as good as Wicken Fen or anywhere, to see rare and interesting wildlife. Perfect for anybody with National Trust membership Wicken fen, the first National Trust nature reserve in the country,or Anglesey Abbey,and the RSPB Lakenheath fen where bitterns commonly breed. All are less than 20 minutes away.
