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.

Prima om de stad Cambridge te bezoeken

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Club Campsite
Vriendelijke ontvangst in de receptie, er werd ons een plek toegewezen, we vonden deze prima. Er is ook een speciale plek voor tenten. Sanitairblok prima, altijd fijn, individuele was cabines. Het is een oude steengroeve, met hoogteverschil(terrassen). De bushalte is op 5 minuten lopen en p.p. 2 pond voor de heenreis en voor terug weer 2 pond p.p. Daar is ook een pub, waar je prima kunt eten..Bij vertrek pas voor de poort in de brievenbus doen.

Nice stop over on road trip

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Club Campsite
Nice clean friendly site. Only stayed one night but had a nice pitch in a cul-de-sac part of the site. Walked across to the chalk quarry which was fascinating and recaptured by nature. Nice spot for dog walking.

Mixed feelings... please don't allocate pitches!

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Club Campsite
A pretty site (well, the sun was shining for a change), with attractive nooks and crannies set in an old quarry. But beware, you could end up quite a long way from the toilet block especially if you are allocated a pitch, which I was. The farthest possible away. I don't know if pitches are always allocated or if it was because the site was full - but it's something I hate and I go to CamC sites specifically for the ability to choose my pitch. I passed 3 empty pitches which were still empty in the evening. I was able to move to one but with dire warnings about the (obviously departed) campers returning. They didn't. So good, and it was a nice pitch near the facilities. No sign of thick muddy puddles etc! Facilities (smallish) no better or worse than most sites, and perfectly clean.

Extortionate price for a mud pitch

Cambridge Cherry Hinton Club Campsite
Sadly our experience this time was appalling! Over £52 for one night to be parked next to thick muddy puddles and churned up grass! Extortionate prices for a dreadful pitch so we clearly cannot recommend. On check in we were told it was the only pitch left.. yet we saw empty pitches dotted around. Shouldn't be allowed to charge such rates or offer pitches in such bad condition.
