Tranquil and peaceful site with the basic amenities

When choosing an area to stay during my early February visit, I was delighted to see this site available. The price and simplicity was what initially attracted me, as well as the ideal location. I stayed for 3 nights and arrived with ease after initially driving past the entrance. That was mostly a disagreement between where the satnav thought the site was, and where it actually was. This little site is tucked away on the main road, but you wouldn't be able to tell as it is so lovely, peaceful and tranquil. Being a quiet time of the year, the owner was not around much, but I didn't need them to be as everything was easily self-serving. After agreeing on everything via the phone in advance, I let myself in and parked up to be the only caravan present. PERFECT! Eventually, we managed to meet each other one cold windy morning and settled the bill. While the dogs are loose in the garden, they are not intimidating or noisy and you barely notice they are there. Water and waste were easily accessed without any problems, and getting on and off of site was very easy and simple. It's a short walk down to the quaint pub, and you're within easy walking distance of many of the other villages nearby. The area is so peaceful that if you listen very carefully, you can just about hear the faint clitter clatter of the train in the distance when it goes past. I will definitely return here at a later date when I need to be back in this area and recommend anyone else also stays here.

Great location & value for money

Excellent, location, value for money. Not having EHU brings price down. The site is secure & well kept being flat with nice views. Easy to cycle to Cambridge via The Shelford villages then cycle path either through Grantchester Meadows or footpath from Trumpington. I would recommend this site. Local pub only few hundred yards away is an experience. Duxford being nearby we were treated to a Spitfire flying over each afternoon.

Close to IWM Duxford

A well kept small but tidy CL which we used to visit an air show at the IWM Duxford for which purpose it is very handy. In spite of there being no electrics, the CL was full for the weekend! The co-ordinates for this site are slightly out, it is infact located on the B1368 between Harston and Newton at 53.13207N 0.10053E. and is only a half mile from the Queens head and the bus stop in the village of Newton. The CL sign is not very visible and the entrance via two gates is easy to miss although the Farm also has a roadside sign. It is possible to turn round in the village of Newton if you should miss the entrance. We would use the site again and consider it excellent value at £7 per night.

Perfect for visiting Cambridge

We've been staying at Hill Farm for over a year; and what a find! It is perfect for visiting Cambridge, being just a mile away from the park and ride. Sarah is so friendly and strikes a perfect balance between welcoming you on site and leaving you alone to come and go as you please. Dogs are made very welcome and the fantastic Heritage pub, The Queens Head on Fowlmere Road, is only a mile down the road. Looking forward to our next visit in a month. Kate, Singe and Jumble.
