A Fenland caravan park has won an award for being one of the country’s best campsites.

Fields End Water Caravan Park and Fishery near Chatteris was judged the best site in the Heart of England region in this year’s AA Caravan and Camping Awards.

Owner Charlie Boughton, who is also a member of the Fenland Tourism Board, said: “Naturally, we’re delighted to win this. It’s a big pat on the back for us – a real achievement.

“But what’s really great is that it’s more recognition for Fenland which hopefully will help to bring more people here. That’s got to be good for the whole local economy.

“We’ve got so much to offer here – peace, open space, big skies. People come here from the towns and cities and say ‘oh, it’s so quiet here’. There’s just an atmosphere that people love.”

Fields End Water has also just been accepted for affiliation to the Caravan Club – an extra feather in its cap that will give it another boost. “It’s something that gives us a much bigger spread of potential customers,” Mr Boughton said.

Mr Boughton will pick up the AA award at a special ceremony in Bristol on March 25th.
