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.

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.
