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 forty-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.

Very tidy and peaceful site run by a lovely team

Our first stay at this site at the end of August was very successful and enjoyable. Great welcome by the expert team on site and your choice on arrival of available pitches ensures you get the level of grass, hard standing, sun, shade and space to suit your needs. Not much here for families which suits us fine now our kids have grown up, so the peace and quiet is perfect and there are plenty of walks and bike rides to be had in the vicinity. Nice pub restaurant (Robin Hood) in walking distance means you don't have to cook every night, and there is a great chippy and Dominos pizza a little further away if you fancy a guilty treat! The site is beautifully kept, clean & tidy, and all the facilities are in good order, albeit the showers a little old fashioned. WiFi is a bit pricey by comparison, but it worked well most of the time. Useful to know there is a BP garage a short drive away with a cashpoint and Budgens mini supermarket, all open 24 hours. There is also a park & ride a short drive away giving easy access to Cambridge.

Return trip to this University City.

Our third visit to this site. A pleasant welcome by the site staff on arrival. As before advised to park up through the barrier and have an exploratory walk around site to see what pitches were available. On selecting our choice his lordship was despatched to bring the outfit along. This site is located well for visiting Cambridge and the surrounding area. Site facilities were kept immaculate as always. The wildlife observed was great to see so close to human activities. Use the bus to visit town as the parking can be horrendous. A visit to Ely is a must, the bonus being free car parking throughout the city. Also consider a trip to Grantchester and it’s meadows. All in all a nice, pleasant return to Cherry Hinton. We will be back again.

Great Site

This is a great little site. It is unusual because there is no road that goes all the way around. It is more like a tree with each branch being a dead end. Unusually when you check in you pull past the barrier, par up and then go for a walk round the site to find your ideal pitch. The system works really well. The site itself is really well set out and you feel as though you are on a small local site. The facilities were excellent although the hot water in the showers could have done with being a little 'hotter'. The staff were really helpful and very pleasant. A tip for those going into Cambridge - use the bus as traffic is quite bad. All in all a great site and location - highly recommended.

We were alarmed by a previous review describing the facilities as poor and not clean. Our fear was unfounded. The facilities were spotless and indeed, gleaming! Our only word of caution is around pitch selection as many are in very shady areas and overhung by the old quarry walls. If you want sunshine and related warmth choose carefully.

Site information

Please Note: A diversion is taking place from now until March 2020 due to a new roundabout being built. This affects directions from North & East to the site. There will be diversions signs in place and the route is fine for motorhomes and caravans as this is also the temporary bus route.
