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.

Short break

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Caravan Club Site
Very warm and friendly welcome by the wardens. Gave out the information on bus timings, local shops and pubs/restaurants. There was some work going on at the site while we were there, and we had to move to another pitch due to electrical work going on at the site moving to the pitch we picked, it wasn’t really a problem, but it would have been good to have had that information before we arrived. The footpath from the site to the main road is a little tight and only suitable to walk in single file, and then keep well over to the hedge. Robin Hood put is ok good local ales if that’s what you like, bus service into Cambridge was good every 20 from outside the pub.

Not all quarries are this dark

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Caravan Club Site
Maybe in a heat wave I would appreciate this site but I found it too enclosed for my liking. I feel that there is a great need for the trees to be thinned. We found a small pitch on the top area but I would hate to be struck in the lower areas. With so many trees, even birds were absent.

Great little site

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Caravan Club Site
Perfect site in lovely location. 10 min walk to pub that does good food and excellent bus links ( 12 an hour in week and 4 an hour on Sundays) into city. Perfect for a city break but site feels like a country site. We'll definitely be back.

Lovely small site

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Caravan Club Site
Lovely small site, easily accessible from the A11. Wardens very friendly and helpful. Site ideal for visiting Cambridge and local NT properties. We were only able to have a short break but will be back.

Excellent location in the heart of England and close to the famous university city

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Caravan Club Site
A really nice landscaped site on various levels in what seems a now naturally matured former quarry. The plots are not in regimented lines as on so many others. The facilities block is quite central on the site, and the roads do not form a circular race track. Despite not having a fancy onboard tv setup I managed to get a perfectly good tv reception on my Unispectra tv with just the Majestic 175's standard aerial despite warnings about poor reception. We were on plot 23 and possibly benefitted from being a bit more elevated than some of the lower pitches. The wardens were happy to share loads of information and the local buses into the City Centre were only a 10minute walk away and ran every 10 minutes. You would have to be very "picky" to find fault with this site.
