SEE & DO

Nestled on the edge of the Cambridgeshire Fens and a stone's throw from Suffolk and Norfolk, Gravel Farm is the perfect base from which to explore East Anglia.

The Fens, or Fenlands, are a naturally marshy region in eastern England.  Most of the fens were drained several centuries ago. They are now mostly a flat, low-lying agricultural region that provide amazing views and beautiful skies and sunsets. 

From Gravel Farm you will have direct access to riverside walks and with Wicken Fen nature reserve just on the doorstep, it is the ideal location for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
