Campers' Information

Thank you for booking your stay at Sacrewell. 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 it’s better to follow the brown heritage signs, which take you to the entrance from the A47.

Checking in

You can go to your pitch 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 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.

If you have added admission to the farm on your booking, please show your wristband to the reception team each time you enter the farm. If you have not added admission to your booking, you will need to purchase this each day you wish to enter the farm. Please show your wristband at reception to receive your 50% discount on admission charges.

You are welcome to stay with us for up to seven nights, subject to availability.

Setting up

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.

A few rules and requests

1. Generators and camp fires aren’t allowed – sorry.

2. Barbecues must be raised off the ground and attended by an adult at all time.

3. Bins are at the back of the playbarn. Please don’t use the bins in the café or the toilet block for large amounts of rubbish

4. Please wash your dishes in the designated areas.

5. Well-behaved dogs are welcome but please make sure they are kept on a lead and that you clear up after them. We allow a maximum of three dogs per pitch.

6. Please leave toilet and shower blocks as you would expect to find them.

7. Please do not climb gates, fences or trees.

8. Do consider your fellow campers (especially those with children) and keep noise to a minimum after 9pm.

9. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

We reserve the right to ask you to leave if you violate these guidelines.


Whether you’re looking for a date with the Easter Bunny, or fancy a spot of star-gazing with the experts, there’s always something to do at Sacrewell.

Life here changes seasonally and our events reflect that.

As part of The William Scott Abbott Trust, Sacrewell combines its events with education about food, farming and the countryside but there’s a huge injection of fun in them too.

For full details, please visit the Upcoming Events section of our website.

Exploring the area

Sacrewell is close to Peterborough, where you can visit the museum, Flag Fen and Queensgate Shopping Centre. The charming market town of Stamford is six miles away and beautiful Burghley House is within walking distance along the Hereward Way between Stamford and Peterborough.

We specially recommend a visit to the village of Helpston to see the birthplace of the poet John Clare.


Sacrewell is just off the A1/A47 junction – follow the brown tourist signs. An on-demand bus service can be booked in advance (Monday-Saturday) by calling Call Connect on 0845 263 8153.


The gift shop stocks a selection of food, gifts and small camping items, from washing up liquid and matches to Grasmere Farm bacon and sausages and our very own eggs (subject to availability).

The nearest village shop is the Post Office in Wansford (about three-quarters of a mile away). The nearest supermarket is in the Bretton Centre, Peterborough. There is a petrol station on the A47, close to Sacrewell, which has a cash machine and sells a selection of newspapers.

Food and drink

Origin8 Sacrewell use local meat, veg, fruit and more to create delicious hot and cold meals, sandwiches and snacks – think home-made soup, pasta bakes, baked potatoes, shepherd’s pie and salads. Our coffees are made with our own blend of beans and there are juices and ice creams from the Anglian counties for small people. Speak to them about arranging a pre-booked breakfast.

Sit back on squishy sofas with a drink, or bring the family for lunch or tea – the cakes are seriously yummy.

If you’re adventuring further, we also run a refreshment kiosk in the playbarn, where you can relax with a drink and a slice of cake while your children let off steam on our new, state-of-the-art slides, climbing equipment and soft play games.

For an evening meal, our staff highly recommend the Paper Mills pub and the Haycock Hotel in Wansford – both offer delicious, top of the range pub grub.

Checking out

Please ensure you are off your pitch by midday of the final day of your stay, to allow our next happy campers to settle in without delays.


If you would like to cancel your booking, let us know no later than 14 days before your due arrival date and your deposit will be returned to you. Any cancellations after the 14-day cut-off date can be moved to another date within three months of the original booking.
