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.

Return trip to this University City.

Our third visit to this site. A pleasant welcome by the site staff on arrival. As before advised to park up through the barrier and have an exploratory walk around site to see what pitches were available. On selecting our choice his lordship was despatched to bring the outfit along. This site is located well for visiting Cambridge and the surrounding area. Site facilities were kept immaculate as always. The wildlife observed was great to see so close to human activities. Use the bus to visit town as the parking can be horrendous. A visit to Ely is a must, the bonus being free car parking throughout the city. Also consider a trip to Grantchester and it’s meadows. All in all a nice, pleasant return to Cherry Hinton. We will be back again.

Great Site

This is a great little site. It is unusual because there is no road that goes all the way around. It is more like a tree with each branch being a dead end. Unusually when you check in you pull past the barrier, par up and then go for a walk round the site to find your ideal pitch. The system works really well. The site itself is really well set out and you feel as though you are on a small local site. The facilities were excellent although the hot water in the showers could have done with being a little 'hotter'. The staff were really helpful and very pleasant. A tip for those going into Cambridge - use the bus as traffic is quite bad. All in all a great site and location - highly recommended.

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.
