Set in ancient quarry works and a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), the Cambridge Cherry Hinton Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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.

Well worth a stay

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Club Campsite
This was our first time at Cherry Hinton, and I have to say we were impressed. Good location for Cambridge by bus, and surrounding attractions. The facilities, including toilets, showers and washing up area are spotless. The site is set out in a variety of small, individual areas which give it a very private feel. Hosts were very helpful and said that there are plans to upgrade a number of pitches and the tent area over the next 12 months as planning as now been approved (eg for more hardstanding and less grass areas prone to rain and weather). Ideal for dog walking nearby, and local pubs within walking distance. Nearby road and school playing fields did not impact on our stay. We will be back in December for some festive spirit in Cambridge. Greg and Diane January 2024

Excellent!

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Club Campsite
We have visited before and returned for our new year break. Excellent friendly staff, peaceful campsite in easy walking distance to dog and child friendly pubs. Also easy use of the bus into Cambridge. Shoutout to the Salisbury Arms a short bus ride away, good beers, pizza and atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this campsite.

Fantastic site

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Club Campsite
Stayed here last weekend. This has to be one of the cleanest and well kept sites we have stayed on. Exceptional cleanliness everywhere. Ideal location for getting into Cambridge with a choice of bus stops at the end of the road. Two goid pubs close by were an added bonus.

A Great Location to Visit Cambridge

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Club Campsite

The Cherry Hinton site is an ideal location for a day trip into Cambridge. We drove to the nearby Park & Ride (10 minutes) and took advantage of the bus service. £3.50 return into the city and that included the parking. There is a height restriction, so be aware if you have a motorhome.

Lovely site

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Club Campsite
We stayed here as a base to visit Shepreth Wildlife Park, and also the city: It's a lovely site and I really like the fact that it's divided up into little sub-sites, so even when there are loads of people coming and going, no part of the site has much through traffic. Although the Cambridge Folk Festival was happening really close by, we heard nothing! One tip - if you fancy a punt ride during your stay, book in advance and get the earliest booking you can, the river is much quieter at the start of the day.
