Why stay here ...

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.

Very tired

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Club Campsite
The overall appearance and feel of this site is that it is tired and could you do with money spent on the pitches and surrounding areas. If CAMC continue to put the prices up without maintaining the pitches, then this will encourage people to use CL sites at half the cost! Based on many reviews it appears that as long as the site wardens are friendly then the site gets a 5 star rating, surely that should be a given, as that’s their job!

A fantastic stay

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Club Campsite
We stayed recently for the first time and found the wardens very friendly and knowledgeable with regard to the local area. We had two meals at The Robin Hood pub which is within walking distance and dog friendly. We were told about a walk, mainly off road, into the centre of Cambridge. We found time to visit Ely and Grantchester as well as fully exploring Cambridge.

Excellent Week-end Break

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Club Campsite
This review is a little late coming but here we go! We stayed at Cherry Hinton at the end of February. It was only our second trip so we were (and still are) novices. The hosts were absolutely brilliant. We didn’t have a hose for freshwater so they found one for us. We didn’t know how to do the toilet so that was explained. We even managed to tear the bottom of the grey water tank which they crawled under our motor home to fix (as well as anyone can fix a 6 inch gash!). Basically, nothing was too much. Aside from the hosts, the site was very well located for Cambridge, We cycled in every day. The facilities were immaculate which definitely set a very high bar for all future sites. We can’t speak highly enough of the site and the facilities.

Helpful wardens

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Club Campsite
We stayed here for two nights at the end of March this year in order to visit nearby Duxford. Lovely clean and tidy site with excellent facilities and very convenient for visiting Cambridge too. However on returning home my husband realised that our water filler cap on the van was missing and assumed that perhaps we had left it on site. A quick call to the wardens confirmed this and a few days later said cap was kindly posted back to us . Thank you so much and we will definitely be returning again soon.
