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 to visit again

Over the years we have visited here numerous times. Location is perfect for visiting Cambridge, there is a park and ride just down the road. We stayed for 1 night and despite being the last people to arrive we were still given a warm welcome from the wardens - well done and thank you for your enthusiasm! We were given a choice of several pitches - remember the ground was very wet apon arrival and we were in a motorhome which are renouned for getting stuck on wet grass let alone mud. We occupied a hard stand pitch opposite the washroom which was lovely and level, protected from the (very strong during our stay) winds and close to the EHU bollard. As an added bonus, not worries about getting stuck - hardstands are king in wet weather if you use a MH. Facilities immaculate, many thanks to the wardens hard work keeping things this way. We walked to Cherry Hinton town, not far, to buy supplies from the supermarket for tea. Usually we would visit a pub or 2 to break up the journey but due to the covid restrictions in the UK we decided to wander back to the site for a glass of wine and a hearty evening meal 'in house'. Lovely quiet nights stay, great nights sleep. Clean and tidy washrooms. Level pitches and lovely wardens. No doubt we will be back again another day.

Lovely setting

Great pretty site, in an old quarry with small separated areas. Nice showers and facilities. The C&MC are great giving the reduced VAT rate back to us. About £23.50 a night. Stayed Fri and Sat. A cycle ride into Cambridge or 2 buses nearby. Friendly, helpful and informative wardens. Great real ale pubs - lots of choices-The Flying Pig and The Maypole.

OK for a short break

Two of the friendliest wardens we have met greeted us at Cherry Hinton, really makes a difference. The site is a bit cramped and does have a bit of a goldfish bowl effect in some areas but nonetheless it is quiet and peaceful, which is surprisingly given that quite a busy road runs past it. The showers and toilets are as you come to expect, top notch. For casual cycling this is the place to go, loads of paths to follow all virtually flat. If you just want to bus it in, the park and ride is a two minute drive away from the site, where there is free parking and the return fare into the city is £3. Tesco is very close by car. TV with booster available is fine. Ideal place for people like us who just wanted a short break within an hours drive.

Great Site, Great Team. Thank you

We visited the site 9ver 5 days and it was lovely. Site was clean and tidy and close to a Tesco express and the Pub!! We didn't met the full time wardens as they were on holiday but the temp wardens from Southend really were lovely and helpful. Really loved the nature reserve on other side of the road for dog walks and the on site walk is good. Can't wait to come back end of Nov. We will bring the bikes next time for sure. WiFi good. If working from van like me then, Vodaphone signal not fabulous but ok for hotspot on email, low quality on MS Teams, SKYPE etc. Obviously not the sites fault!! I will report on next visit if EE any better as I have Giga Cube to try out there.
