We were in need of a place to spend a night on close proximity to both Northampton and also Wellingborough. A Google search brought up a few large commerical sites and also a selection of alternatives. Glebe Meadow Fishery is a “certificated site” affiliated to the Camping and Caravanning Club. The location suited our requirements.

Easy to find, this small site offers grass pitches with or without electricity. There were also several narrow boats moored alongside the site, really adding to the character of this spot.

We were pitched right along the riverbank, but no rain was forecast! Shower and toilet facilities are available and these were basic compared to those found on larger sites. However, they are adequate for those not using the van’s onboard facilities.

Glebe Meadow Fishery offered a perfect night stop for us in a location that we needed. The site was very peaceful and we were able to watch numerous birds, ducks and so on, adding to the restful atmosphere.

Canoe hire was also available through Canoe 2, and I was also advised that the river was well stocked – although with a name such as Glebe Valley Fishery, this was to be expected!

Glebe Meadow Fishery – take care with sat nav!

Sat nav users will note the post code will take you to a nearby lorry/haulage yard, but the private road to the site is opposite here, and there is space at the lorry yard to turn around!

The site details are available on the CCC’s sitefinder pages.
