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 have a games barn which re-opens end of May. We have 2 Yurts,
and a Timber clad self serve Cafe. We hope to build 2 more Yurts in 2019. Just 4
electric hook ups for Camper vans or Motorhomes. 20 Tent pitches big enough for 2
tents in each area. Just one hot water tap for washing up. Lots of toilets that do
flush. We welcome small groups, The only condition is no noise after 11pm. No radio
/ recorded music allowed on this Campsite but live music is welcomed.
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
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.
