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.

Gem of a site that is unique

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Caravan Club Site
I stayed on this site for 7 nights and they were delightful. The site has a unique layout of several different sections, I stayed down a steep but small hill in a valley. I was traveling on my own as a disabled single lady and the wardens could not have been more helpful. The site and facilities are clean and well laid out. The park and ride is close by as is a bus stop. I easily drove into the town center which is very given over to cycles and electric scooters and food delivery people. There is a super market to visit and of course all of the colleges and the river. We also found Trumpton Meadows which was a delight. There is also a large retail park very close by. Coming back to the site was great, it was an oasis where you could not hear the traffic, even though the main roads were close by. Everyone was friendly and there were dog walks and cycle paths close by. if you want to explore Cambridge and Ely this site is ideal.

Peaceful site, extremely kind and helpful wardens

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Caravan Club Site
A lovely peaceful site, great pitch and made to feel very welcome whilst travelling with our three dogs. We had a problem with the electrics in our van whilst there and the warden came and helped us, after hours, along with a fellow motorhomer as well. The warden couldn’t have been friendlier, always giving us a wave and coming over to pet the dogs when he saw us. All in all, a lovely stay and will definitely be returning.

Hidden gem

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Caravan Club Site
We stayed for two nights on this site in August. The wardens were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were well maintained and clean, and the site was quiet and peaceful. We used the local buses which stop nearby to travel in to Cambridge and also we walked along a footpath into Cambridge one day. We cycled from the site to Anglesey Abbey on the cycle paths with which Cambridge is well provided, and on to Wicken Fen (both National Trust). We will definitely return for another, longer visit soon.

Very handy for Cambridge

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Caravan Club Site
Spent 3 nights here in August and were lucky to have glorious weather. It feels like a small site as it is divided into separate small fields. The buses run into Cambridge every 10 minutes from just outside the site. Cherry Hinton itself has a few shops and a couple of pubs serving food. Will definitely be returning.
