The Eco-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, use of a covered Games Barn, and Bird Hide.

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, and have found it to be a good way to show people how nice is the village of Isleham, and how life for  small farms work. Many campers return due to the peaceful, quiet and casual nature here. The neighbouring field is a stewardship nature reserve, and a perfect habitat for birds with the river lark meandering though, and a flood plain which is perfect 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. We created an excellent under cover area with a variety of games like pool, table tennis and badminton. We have 2 Yurts, and a Timber clad cabin with it’s own en suite facilities. Just 4 electric hook ups for Caravans or Motorhomes. 20 Tent pitches big enough for 2 tents in each area. See Map of Campsite pitches a - v each letter is two pitch places. We welcome groups and parties, The only condition is quiet by 10.30 and no noise after 11pm.

Local Attractions

There is plenty to do and see in the local area. For nature lovers there’s the oldest National Trust wetland in Wicken Fen, and the

Lakenheath Fen, RSPB site.

Chippenham Fen is just  4 miles from the campsite, Wicken about  6 miles, Ely or Newmarket are 8 miles away.

 

The local area

Visit the world famous Horse racing at Newmarket. Punting on the river Cam in Cambridge. Just 17 miles from the Campsite.

 

 

 

 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.

Either drive or hire one of our bicycles to visit the excellent local market towns. 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.

In 2011 we had several Avocets hatch some young on the wet land you see in this photograph, also Godwits and Little Ring Plovers and Barn Owls. Some local bird watchers think Isleham is as good as anywhere to see rare and interesting wildlife. Also perfect for ornithologists are the local areas of Wicken fen, the first National Trust nature reserve in the country, and the RSPB Lakenheath fen where bitterns commonly breed. Both can be visited by taking a short cycle on one of our bikes.
