We parked at the Ambience car park and paud, but you can also park for free near the camping ground.

A lovely open grass park area with Willow, Horse-chestnut and Sycamore trees to sit around for picnics or walks along the river Great Ouse in my home town of St. Neots.

Few years ago i bought a boat from hartford marina,as the boat was so large i had to wait to get it lifted out and transfered to my marina.So while waiting for the move we traveled on the river ouse,for the first time but never again,we found the other boaters arrogant and down right rude.

Nothing better on a hot day than to walk along the river, surrounded by grass and trees. I was last there on a Sunday and there was a brass band playing. Delightful.

We visited St Neots and what a lovely location the Ouse runs through the edge of town with plenty of activity to participate in or to watch even by sitting and watching the world go bye

this is a lovely stretch of water. With a couple of locks (pretty much at either end of the town). You'll see all sorts of wildlife (if you take time to look).

Very nice river, it flow across the very middle of St Neots. There are lots of parks around the river, with many footpaths suitable for walking, jogging, running, cycling, rolleskating etc, and many dirt roads as well for walking and hiking. Also, in the summer, on hot days the water temperature of the river can easily reach 25C or even... More
