A basic CL close to Cambridge

First impressions on arrival can be a little disappointing but the friendly welcome from Mr Page and the close proximity to Cambridge, together with a choice of flat grass or hardstanding pitches make this a worthwhile CL for a short stay. Situated less than five miles from two Park & Ride facilities it is ideal for trips into Cambridge with its' many attractions. !6amp electric supply, good TV reception and excellent phone signal are a bonus, as is the provision of a well appointed toilet block near the site entrance. We recently spent four nights here and I thoroughly recommend it.

Very convenient for visiting Cambridge

We have just spent 3 nights on this CL. Overall a reasonable experience. Visually not very attractive with a range of stored motor homes and one derelict caravan on site but cant fault it on convenience if you are wanting to visit Cambridge (cycled in on cycle lane) or Grantchester (walked in). Local/village garage includes an excellent shop to small supermarket standard and White Horse pub around 10 minutes walk away. Toilet basic but clean and well supplied. Owner John gave us advance warning that he was going to be away on our arrival day and then found us out on his return so full marks to him for good communication and his friendly attitude.

Nice little CL

Stayed here over the weekend while visiting Cambridge for a friends wedding. The site is easily accessed with a mixed of hardstanding and grass pitches on a well kept grass field which provided an excellent play area for our children (ages 6, 4 and 2). Mr Page was very welcoming and friendly and gave good local advice. The toilets are functional though a bit small and spidery, good recycling. The children loved the range of wildlife they spotted with the bunnies being the favourite! Will be back if in the area again.

Cl with superb access to Cambridge

We visit this lovely cl regularly when visiting our daughter at Selwyn College. It is great that it is open all year and has easy access from the M11. It is a 15 - 20 minute cycle ride on a cycle track into Cambridge. We also use the local Whippet bus service from the bus stop round the corner. The nearest park and ride is approx. 10 minutes drive away if you prefer a more frequent bus service. The Countryside Restoration Trust manages land immediately adjacent with extensive, wide mown pathways for walking. Our little dog used to love it. Maps are available from the office. Off-road cycle ways are close by and we enjoy cycling to Granchester on mainly traffic free paths. If you are not familiar with the TV series, there is a wonderful church and famous tea garden there. Local attractions include the National Trust Wimpole Hall and Duxford (historic aircraft collection}. The hardstanding pitches look out onto a pleasant, well-kept grassy area. We enjoy watching the rabbits hopping about and the horse which can climb on a bank and look over the fence at us. The toilets are a useful facility which not all cls provide. Mr Page is helpful and friendly. He was happy to provide us with information on local veterinary surgeons when my dog became seriously poorly and took the trouble to call round later to find out how we had got on. If you are thinking of visiting Cambridge, we would definitely recommend this site but please leave some space for us!

Our Cambridge site

We try to stay here when visiting daughter at Corpus Christi, a 30 minute cycle ride through Grantchester meadows. The paddock looks lovely but is too soft during the winter when many other local sites close, so the hard-standing has been great for us in all weathers. The Countryside Restoration Trust HQ is based at Birds Farm with access to walks on the adjacent 400 acre Lark Rise Farm. On a working farm site we expect to see land being put to diverse use; a barn full of young bullocks, a conservation centre, an area of caravan storage and some mud shouldn't be surprising! Barton Jumble Sales are brilliant too!
