Stayed for 3 nights over the bank holiday weekend! Fantastic site, thank you John, Bev and Prince the staffie for the warm welcome! The toilet and shower rooms were spotless- the nicest I’ve experienced in a long time! The smells from the kitchen each morning were mouth watering! Fortunately for us the weather was gorgeous which meant BBQ breakfasts!! It was lovely to be by the river and the cycle ride into March was great, which takes you along the river and past some lovely little houses (all off road) before reaching a huge park with a playground for the kids. We will definitely be returning!!!

Glad you had a good time! Loved to meet Pru (and the rest of you of course lol)
Stayed at Four Winds for 4 nights last week- from the moment we arrived we could not have been better looked after! From our lovely room with amazing views over to the river to the delicious meal we had ordered for that evening to the wonderful breakfasts with everything you could wish for plus home made soda bread to die for! What a find- only thing is there are only 2 bedrooms to let so book early! Bev seems like a friend already( John was away!) Thank you so much for such a lovely time- we are looking forwards to staying again!
Di and Michael
Thanks Di. We look forward to the next time, Ill make sure I bake some more soda bread
Having just returned from a weekend at the Fourwinds bed and breakfast I cannot praise it more highly. From being greeted upon our arrival to the moment we left John and Bev’s hospitality was second to none. The purpose of our trip was for my daughter to learn archery, taught by John. She really enjoyed her course and John’s patience was commendable. The bedroom was large, clean and comfortable. We coffee making facilities and homemade biscuits waiting for us. Breakfast was delicious and cooked to perfection. Along with our cooked breakfast there were homemade muffins and jams tempting us. Fourwinds is a haven of tranquility, not only from its idyllic setting, but from its hosts who were very special. I am plotting a return visit to have a go at the various activities on offer.
Thanks for the kind words Michelle. Hope your journey back was ok and we look forward to seeing you and the rest of the family soon.
Stayed three nights mid week as working in area. John & Beverly made me feel very welcome. Nice and clean B&B home from home. Being winter it was very cold out so it was nice to get back to warm and quiet room. Good nights sleep, refreshed and set off again with hearty breakfast. Will definatly visit again and visit in summer with caravan.
Thanks Stephen. We look forward to seeing you very soon

Hi Sue and Andy. Glad you enjoyed and look forward to seeing you next time.
A little gem in the fens. Excellent hosts, treated us like old friends, really made us feel welcome. Very comfortable room with everything you could need, a real home from home. The food was to die for, everything was so fresh and cooked to perfection. Looking forward to going back in the summer, this time with our motorhome, can’t wait to try out the canoes. What a find!!! Thank you both. x
A pleasure! We look forward to seeing you in the summer.
Stayed just one night, but would definitely come again. My husband and I enjoyed Beverley’s delicious home made soup, followed by home made shortbread and coffee. The bedroom was spacious yet cosy and warm and the bed so comfortable, slept like a log. So much delicious food on offer for breakfast, couldn’t sample it all, but what I did have was superb – Beverley is an excellent cook and a very friendly and welcoming host – nothing was too much trouble for her. I wish I could be looked after so well every day!
Thanks Chris – hope you guys have a great Christmas

nice to see you guys! glad you enjoyed, despite not meeting John lol
Have just returned from a short weekend at Fourwinds, we were meetings some friends at the Marina and were looking through U.K. campsites for somewhere local to stay for a few nights and found Fourwinds. What a find, my wife telephoned to see if we could get booked in when we wanted, when she came off the phone she said she had spoken to somebody called John and felt as though she had known him for years,she asked a lot of questions about the site locality in relation to the marina,local facilities, and site facilities and was impressed with his Knowledge of the local area.
When we arrived we were met by John and shown to our pitch then given a tour of the site to see the best way to the marina and the site facilities and finished up in the information room where Bev came out and joined in the conversation, we couldn`t have wished to meet a nicer couple, although they have only had the site since christmas they have already reached a high standard and are thinking of expanding the number of pitches available.
On the whole we could not fault the site, it was very clean everywhere, the grass was freshly mown and John and Bev could not have been more friendly, First class.
We will definately be back soon, thanks a lot.
Thanks Dennis and Maureen. It was lovely meeting you, look forward to seeing you both again.
Just returned from a 8 night holiday at this loverly clean friendly site, both Bev and John was always had time for a natter and it was nice to campsite owners always smileing, the grass is well kept with plenty of room for children to play.The fishing is very easy, only small fish roach and perch but you catch one every throw, if your kids are intrested in fishing and want to learn you will not find a better place, my wife and myself found fishing a size 20 hook and feeding maggot was the best fishing about 800mm deep. There is only 2 showers and 2 toilets but we never had to wait, always clean, plenty of hand towels and toilet rolls, we will defenetly will be back.
Thanks Steve. Hope your journey was ok.
I’ve just spent a great weekend at Fourwinds with my family and some friends. The campsite is clean and well maintained and being allowed to have open fires is an added bonus. The river that forms part of the site is also an added bonus and the canoes you can hire from John and Bev are great fun. It’s close to town and a supermarket. The toilet and shower facilities are clean and warm. Couldn’t ask for more!! We will definitely be visiting again soon.
Looking forward to the next time
After a long journey I was very glad to arrive and appreciated the warm welcome from John and Bev. I was made to feel really at home. Great care and attention is given to detail.
Though inexpensive, the room was very pleasant, with a very comfortable bed. The breakfast was enjoyable too.
The setting of Fourwinds is quiet and beautiful, looking out over a river at the back. I wish I had had longer to relax and explore. I’m hoping to be able to get back to Fourwinds for another visit and to try out the canoes!
Thanks Claire. Hope to see you again

‘We loved our stay. Lovely clean facilities. The canoes and fishing are great to provide entertainment for the kids. You have been very friendly and helful! Good luck with the development of your business. Many thanks from the Insley family’
I booked two nights camping with a friend in August and the only regret we had was that we hadn’t arranged to stay longer! John and Bev were great hosts and made me feel very welcome from the initial phonecall to our arrival and throughout our stay. We took advantage of the canoe hire and was the highlight of our short stay. Great site for camping, local shops are minutes away, genuinely could not wish for a better site and hosts! We are booking for a month’s time and will be returning as often as possible!
Thanks J&B for a great mini holiday!
Mike & Dave
Thank you John and Bev for making our stay with you so welcoming and enjoyable. Am devastated to be home and dreaming of your fantastic breakfast!!! Kids still want to be with you and are plannning our return. Its spotlessy clean, and the wildlife and views around perfect. Thank you for that last afternoon we spent with you both. We will never forget this holiday, mainly for the canoeing!!! but also for your kindness and brilliant hospitality. xx
Think John will remember your canoeing too Lol . It was lovely to meet all of you and we look forward to the next time we see our founder members!!
Stayed here for just one night and was gutted that it wasnt longer. The grounds are lovely and the owners evern nicer. Have never been made to feel so welcome anywhere and found our stay really relaxing. The owners were really accomodating to us and we couldnt have asked for anything else.Had a fantastic time and cant reccomend this place enough. Cant wait to book a longer trip soon.
Thanks Laura. Looking forward to seeing you guys another time
Amazing place! We received the warmest of welcomes! The grounds are lovely, and peaceful, and the facilities immaculate. We will be back – and for a much longer stay next time!
This place is a treasure!
thanks Lucy. We look forward to seeing you both again.

Dave and Mike, Essex – ‘Great Hosts. John and Bev were extremely welcoming and show a real care in what they do. Great faciliteis. Clean Toilets, good clean showers and the canoeing was great fun. Excellent value for money. Wish we’d booked for longer. Will see you very soon no doubt’
Carly, Essex – Fantastic site, immaculate toilets/showers, very friendly owners. Highly recommended.
Thanks to Bev and John for a great week. Canoes were great fun, shame there was no pub at our destination, should have gone into March!
Loads of butterflies and birds to watch during the day, and rabbits. plenty of space and room for kids to play, We will definitely return soon.
thanks for the feedback Martin, have to think about opening a bar lol.
Arrived home yesterday after a 5 night stay with my little ‘un, 9, and my friends and their boy, 10.
What a great week. Mainly good weather so that always helps.
The site is great, generous sized pitches, good soil – pegs in and out nice and easy and held during windy weather. Spotless toilet and shower facilities, site kept really well, We had breakfast provided by Bev on the last morning, good quality and value and brought across to us.
Do the canoeing. It’s great. If you do, make sure you take drinks and sun slap, that’s experience gained the hard way.
Beautiful starry sky at night, not seen anything like it for years.
John and Bev were super hosts, really helpful and friendly, always stopped for a chat when you met them. They seem to enjoy the opportunities to chat with you. Very helpful on local facilities, from bike repair shop to places to eat out.
I could go on, but will finish with a definite intention to return.
Best wishes to Bev and John.
Steve, Ellis (Alex), Martin, Yvette, Adam and Bear the dog,
Thanks Stephen. Hope the journey home wasnt too bad.
Fantastic two night camping experience! Thank you for making me feel safe, especially as it was my first time! You really have a lovely campsite, congratulations.
Thanks for the feedback . We look forward to seeing you again some time.
Thank you John and Bev for a fantastic camping weekend – you are clearly passionate and love running the site and it shows in the cleanliness and order of the site. The ground was flat and soft for pitching with the toilets and showers being pristine. I would recommend this site to anyone visiting the area and will definitely be coming back. Thank you. Lewis, Lisa, Oliver, Sophie and Oscar (the Labrador).
Thanks guys. See you again.

‘A real fantastic place to stay. We had such a nice welcome and always felt accommodated. Lovely facilities too. We will be coming back to canoe Thank you. Sarah, Ben and Lewis’
‘We really enjoyed our stay here at Fourwinds, everything about it was brilliant! Everyone gets a nice large space for their tents, cars, campfires, gazebos, tables and chairs, and even when all that is on it, there is still lots of room! The toilets and showers are very clean and pristine and the mooring, next to the river was great to fish and canoe off! An all round brilliant holiday!’ Bridget
Hi John and Bev
Just a short visit this weekend but had a lovely time. Very peaceful and excellent service. Will definately be back.
Jay and Kim
Thanks for the feedback. Looking forward to seeing you again.
It was the first time we had camped and, to our surprise, we had a really great time despite the awful weather (raining throughout our stay). John and Bev were very warm and friendly and so attentive to our needs it made our camping experience an enjoyable one. My husband borrowed a tent without checking it had all the bits in the bag….. no tent pegs, ropes or ground cover – John went the extra mile and sorted everything out, he even put the tent up for us!!! The facilities were very clean and you could sense that both John and Bev uphold a high standard. We have already rebooked for August hoping the weather will be better but this time we are taking the kids.
looking forward to see you back and meeting your kids
Despite the rain we had a such a great time! Bev and John were absolutely lovely, so welcoming, helpful and beyond accommodating. The facilities were so good it felt more like glamping than camping. We are already planning our next visit. Thanks guys!
thanks guys, looking forward to seeing you back here soon
Lovely b & b, lovely campsite, lovely people. Can’t wait to see the canoes in the water !
This is our third visit to Fourwinds, lovely rooms, really comfy beds, delicious breakfasts. But, most of all, the warmest welcome from Bev and John, the perfect hosts. Thanks you guys for another fun and relaxing stay!

14.5.12 Visited the site at the weekend. fantastic site. well worth a visit. Best of luck with the venture John and Bev. – Graham Johnson
13.5.12 Good base for a holiday, if camping -nice flat land for your tent ! – Clare Wray
13.5.12 Fun in the Fens guaranteed!!! – Cindy, Northamptonshire
Just returned from an amazing night at your b&b. Thank you so much, the room was delightful and well worth the price. I was very excited about a proper cooked breakfast, being a vegetarian I’ve had a few bad experiences at other establishments so going to the trouble of proper veggie sausages and even the offer of local duck or hens eggs made me feel properly catered for. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you again – Sue, Northants.
