Excellent Access to Cambridge

This was the first time we visited this site. Access from the A11 via Lime Kiln Road is a little narrow for larger outfits so I recommend using Fulbourn Road which is much more accessible. We had a very warm welcome but the process of finding a pitch on foot is a tad frustrating if there's more than a couple of outfits waiting to book in. That said, this is a quiet and well-run site, conveniently situated for visiting Cambridge and the surrounding area. Cherry Hinton is a 5 minute walk and offers two local pubs and a choice of local shops and takeaways. We ate at the "Robin Hood" which offers a very comprehensive menu and good value. There are bus stops in the village which offer regular and convenient access to Cambridge and, for the more energetic, Cambridge and the surrounding area is very cycle-friendly.

Good location

This site is in a good location for cycling into Cambridge. Designated cycle paths all the way. Site well maintained and very clean but a little unusual in layout. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Good location for hospital

We have had a long stay here due to hospital treatment, site has always been clean and tidy. The site wardens Paul & Marie have been fantastic in all aspects, from start to the end with bookings etc. Both a pleasant couple we will definitely return to site for a holiday in the near future and explore more of the city, nice compact site loved the pitch we had right at the top of site, been a good stay and healing one. A huge thanks to Paul and Marie for being so helpful a credit to the club.

Ideal for Visiting Cambridge

Just returned from a 3 night stay at Cherry Hinton. Pitches, facilities and Wardens all very pleasant!!. Bus stop 5 minute walk away which takes you into the city centre. Local pubs, restaurants and mini Tesco all within 10 minute walk. This is a site that we will return to. Pitch 25 is quite sunny at this time of year (if there is any sun!!).

2nd visit

We stayed here for the 2nd time just as the new wardens were settling in. They are very friendly and willing to chat.The location of this site with its close proximity to Cambridge is ideal for anyone to explore the area. Facilities clean and fresh. The only issue with this site is the layout. For a larger unit like ours we tend to be given a pitch in the furthest away spot in the lower area of the site. Due to mobility issues that made it just about impossible for me to get to the shower etc. Taking our MH off site to visit anywhere became a non starter so basically all we could do was stay in it. I wish this site was more level and disabled access friendly.

Lovely Cambridge

It's been ten years since we were last at Cherry Hinton. Now we are motorhomers this site has the advantage of easy regular bus services into the the City Centre, the bus stops are only about 400 metres from the site. There is so much to see and do in the City. The Botanic Gardens are worth a visit and at this time of the year the "Winter Garden" might give you a few ideas for your own garden. The River Cam and the Backs make for an interesting walk but you can't always have access to all Colleges. The site is much as we remember it from previous visits. I was surprised how quiet it was given its urban location. However there is a Sports Complex next door which is floodlit so expect some noise for a short periods during the evening. Like others I was a bit confused as to why on some pitches you have to drive across to get to a hardstanding. Apparently this is not entirely within the wish of the Club but the Warden said they hoped to change that in future. Given that the site roads are spurs it is sometimes difficult to turn if you come to a dead end so perhaps think about where you want to pitch before going too far into the site! The wardens can always give you an idea of what pitches are available. Unfortunately the motorhome waste point still has heavy lift off covers on the drain. Hopefully this will be remedied when the site eventually has a refurbishment. Just a word of warning about the instructions to get to the site using the A14. This road has major ongoing roadworks so be prepared for delays, especially on weekdays.

Recent stay

Stayed for a few days in school half term during very warm February. Really friendly wardens, lovely peaceful site and a short walk to the bus stop. We stayed on a pitch on the lower part which was very quiet but if you have a very long low motorhome like our Bailey 79-4 you might find your bottom scraping a bit going up the hill- take it slow. Cambridge beautiful, and try the Chelsea buns at Fitzbillies...gorgeous.

Confused over hardstandings

Currently staying at Cherry Hinton, having rung before booking to check availability of hardstandings (7.9mtr motorhome) I was rather disappointed to discover that although all their available pitches were hardstanding many were approached via grass. There were tyre ruts and mud on most pitches. Luckily, because of the weather it was relatively empty, so we were able to find a pitch, although relatively short for our outfit, accessible via shingle. Don't get me wrong the site is ideal for Cambridge but consider using in the winter months if you have a heavy motorhome.

3 cold nights in Jan/Feb!

We use this site when visiting our daughter and always enjoy our visits. The wardens were very friendly and helpful. A thin layer of snow did not prevent movement but greater use of grit would have helped confidence, especially on the steep path from the lower pitches to the toilet block. The facilities were spotless but in need of an update, tiles not replaced after repairs in the gents and botched repairs to the hairdryers in the ladies did not help their appearance.
