Why stay here ...

Set in ancient quarry works and a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), the Cambridge Cherry Hinton Club Site has been imaginatively landscaped to create the impression of being in the heart of the countryside while only a 25-minute bus journey to the city centre of beautiful Cambridge.

The caravan park gives you easy access to guided walking tours of the nearby medieval colleges where you can enjoy the academic atmosphere that makes the city famous. Wander along or take a punt on the River Cam to see colleges like Corpus Christi, Magdalene and the Bridge of Sighs. A visit to King's College Chapel is a must. If you're feeling a little lazy, open bus tours let you take in the full charm of the city while you relax. For those who like to cycle, the Cambridge Cherry Hinton Club Park offers good cycling paths from the site into and around Cambridge. Just opposite the site, you can enjoy a lovely walk around the nature reserve and old chalk pits. If you're feeling peckish, it's only a short stroll to the nearest pub and if you need to stock up on supplies, a supermarket can be found a little further down the road.

Great stay

From the moment we pulled up we felt this is going to be a good holiday. Paul and Marie were Really welcoming and helpful also amazingly friendly. Always happy to see you and go above and beyond to make sure you have a great holiday. the way the site is set out makes a good atmosphere. Cycling into and around Cambridge was easy and safe. We spent 10 lovely days there and would recommend this site for caravan or Motorhome. Bus stop 5 minutes walk from site.we did our pwn cooking but other members recommended pubs near by. Park and ride 5 minutes away a bit cheaper but there is no path on the road to it. Thank you Wiltshire for the dumplings sorry if i nearly gave you a panic attack P.S you left you tutu in our caravan ha ha Great week The guys from Somerset

Great site convenient for Cambridge

Great site close to Cambridge (busses are very close and run every 10 minutes). The pitches are not on circular routes so there tends to be less traffic and people walking by. It was such a lovely quiet site. The wardens were very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my three night stay here.

Cambridge site review

Spent a few days in our caravan @ Cambridge site in early May. Clean, well managed site as you'd expect from a club site. Wardens seem helpful and easy going. Covid restrictions in place (toilet blocks open, showers closed still) seemed to be working well. Site is attractive and divided into several areas by trees/hedges and was an old chalk pit but didn't seem too enclosed so did get quite sunny. Mostly level pitches but a ramp down to one of the 'fields'. Good 4G mobile signal (I have my own mi-fi router so need 4G to connect). Note that there is an adjacent sports hall and one of the all weather pitches borders the site (partly obscured by landscaping). On the Friday one of these pitches was still in use up to 10pm with floodlights on and pitch noise. Might be intrusive for some if pitched up on that side of the site if this is typical. Otherwise surprisingly tranquil for a site on edge of urban area. Bonus is the Limekiln Close nature reserve opposite the site - we watched nesting peregrines on an old quarry face. Would use again.

Highly Recommended

This was our second visit in two years and we look forward to coming again soon. The wardens, Paul and Marie, are very friendly and helpful. We use the facilities in our motorhome, so cannot comment on the site's facilities. What I can say, however, is that all our needs were met: very good tv reception via the booster, very good club wifi and very good mobile data speed. After heavy rain, one pitch was flooded. The bus stop is 5-10 minutes' walk away.

Lovely lightly wooded and secluded site

The site is in an old chalk quarry, and is lovely, lightly wooded and secluded. A real sun trap too. We had a 14.8 mile cycle potter to Trumpington and Granchester Meadows, Newnham, Cambridge colleges and centre, coffee and hot chocolate on Jesus Green, and back to Cherry Hinton. Great day out. Interesting walk around Cherry Hinton inc. Chalk pits and the brook.
