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.

July 2019

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.

Enjoyed it

Good location, 2 dog/children friendly pubs in a short walking distance...we preferred the Robin Hood, although the we had a drink in the Red Lion too. There’s a direct bus in to Cambridge although we did walk in (it was a bit of a trek!). The site itself is well run, clean & tidy. The toilets & showers plentiful & up to the club standards we see elsewhere. There’s shops & takeaways close enough to walk to & a decent nature trail/wooded walk across the road from the site...we liked it here & would return.

Perfect!

My wife and I have just returned from a 5 night break at your Cambridge Cherry Hinton Site. WOW what can I say. PREFECT HOSTS! Lovely human beings who were courteous, kind and patient. The site was immaculately kept. Shower block was clean from floor to ceiling. Perfect location and hosts. Thank you! If pitch 43 is free it will provide you with ultimately privacy. Cycle path to Grantchester to the Orchard Teas Rooms (Yum) and Fen Ditton The Plough (Yum) are a must! Both locations are beside the River Cam.

Must improve

Having spent 7 weeks travelling through Western Europe Cherry Hinton's facilities were the grubbiest we have come across. The site was also the most expensive. After Cherry Hinton we moved on to Richmond Hargill House where the facilities were very clean. How can the Caravan and Motorhome club operate with such wide ranging standards. The facilities need upgrading but that is no excuse. Again, in comparison with the overseas sites we used, this site was the least well kept.
