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.

Nice peaceful site within easy reach of Cambridge centre

We have stayed here a few times travelling from France in our motorhome to visit family in Cambridge. The site is open all year ( the only club site in Cambridge that is) so was handy for our visit over the Christmas holidays 2019. ( sorry we missed the drinks on New Year’s Eve) The site is very quiet and far enough away from Cherry Hinton to not be affected much by light pollution so the night sky, when clear, is beautiful, if only other visitors wouldn’t leave their caravan outside awning lights on all night it would be much nicer, and darker!!!!! The wardens are friendly, the facilities clean, pitches adequate and the rabbits numerous! We always enjoy our stay here.

Fantastic site in Cambridge

Just back from this great site near Cambridge. Facilities are very good and if you are on hard stading and don't need to cross the grass to get to your pitch all very good with a lovely layout. Very helpful relief Wardens who despite only being there a few days gave us lots of good advice. The location is excellent for Motorhomers with 2 pubs, bus stops and a Tesco express close by. The train station is about 2 miles away and if you pick your trains carefully the costs for two adult returns to Ely was £4.80 !

Good city site

Just had two nights at cherry Hinton site and have to say I can't really fault it. Showers and toilets very clean, the wardens (relief) were very friendly. The site was quiet, it wasn't full so we could choose our pitch. There were a few pitches that could do with improvement to reduce the risk of mud in wet periods, but plenty of hardstanding. We took the bikes and cycled in to Cambridge and it was great, must be the best city in UK to cycle, 3.5 miles to the centre. We will be back.

Great site

the site is on different levels - all tarred roads. Worth taking a walk through the site to choose your pitch. Went in January- cold but there were no water logged pitches. Surprised to see the number of motorhomes and caravans at the site. Pitches for tents is the first on the right. We had a hard standing (with awning), so a decent size. Not sure if any pitches are serviced. The road running by the side of the site can be busy at office times so pitches on the right (as you come in) are quieter. Single toilet block, up to the CMC standards. There is a Tesco express in Cherry Hinton with 2 pubs and 2-3 restaurants - all 700ish meters away from the site. Bus stop is close by too. The warden is very helpful. Don't forget to pull-up on the right, next to the barrier, to check-in.

Awning sites are too small, plus extra pitches squeezed in between plots!!! in!!!

We booked an awning pitch on hardstanding. Well the pitch was over a muddy patch that you had to paddle through to get to the hardstanding. Then the pitch size..... We pay more for a pitch with awning but it wasn't big enough for the car, awning and caravan! The non awning spaces were no smaller. We had to put the car in front of the awning, which made it a squeeze to get in but there was no point in even trying to fit the car on the "normal" side of the caravan to park as THERE WAS ANOTHER CARAVAN!!!! Which also meant the car was in the mud so we were paddling again!! The worst though, and I kid you not, squeezed in between plot 1 and 2 was this other caravan and car!! We were in 2 and It was horrible, felt like a goldfish bowl. We thought it may just be stored there as the site seemed to have a folding camper being stored in the car park but no it was in use! It was empty a couple of days them someone turned up. We ended up just leaving the blinds shut!!! So in short... Small spaces..extra caravan crammed in between plots... Hard standing has mud/grass in front....oh and it's not even a cheap site. Probably okay with a small van and no awning but I'd still avoid.

Site information

Please Note: A diversion is taking place from now until March 2020 due to a new roundabout being built. This affects directions from North & East to the site. There will be diversions signs in place and the route is fine for motorhomes and caravans as this is also the temporary bus route.
