 The location of the site is excellent for trips into Cambridge by bus (Stagecoach Route 7) Last bus home is 22:50!. Alternatively take your bike and the cycle lanes into the city will have you there in a trice.

This is a very open site with little shelter, and the strong winds we experienced did make for a couple of night's disturbed sleep.

The staff team were extremely friendly and helpful, and did a marvellous job of keeping the facilities really clean, despite having to deal with blocked drains while we were there.

This is our third visit to the site, and we have found different things to do each time we've visited.

Museums and Architecture in the city centre, NT Trust properties close by, great walk along the river into Cambridge via Grantchester.

Fantastic selection of places to eat and drink in the city.

 A very nice site with easy access from the M11 (less than 10 mins). Follow the directions given by the C&CC. The final turning Cabbage Moor is a bit hidden so slow down and look for the brown camping sign. Drive slowly down Cabbage Moor as there are a lot of speed bumps.

On arrival we were greeted by a friendly warden then another showed us to our pitch. They were putting everybody over the far side by the high hedge to give protection from the high winds that were due. This was very sensible because it did get very windy.

The site has one large facilities block and a couple of waste and water points. There is a mixture of hardstanding and grass pitches but there are no fully serviced pitches.

The site is very flat and open and in an urban environment but it was very quiet and despite it being close the M11 is only a background murmur at night and not a problem.

Access to Cambridge is easy using the Number 7 bus the stop being close to the site on the main road. It goes round the houses a bit to serve the hospitals and takes about 25 mins. In Cambridge your choice of pubs, bars, restaurants and cafés is endless.

If you walk out of the site and turn left towards Great Shelford there is a large Garden Centre with a decent café. We did not have time to walk down to Great Shelford perhaps next time but we were told there are a couple of good pubs in the village.

Overall a pleasant short stay and we would definitely return at some point perhaps in the warmer months next time.

 Site is very clean and facilities spot on.

Wardens need to lighten up as I don’t think they know how to smile.

Only one lady warden and she was very amenable.

 We have visited this site numeroud times over the last 9 years finding it better than the Cherry Hinton site.

The wardens are always friendly and very helpful if needed. The site is always immaculate and well kept.

Lots of easy bike rides from the site including into the city.

Due to Covid the site was very busy far busier than normal but still had a pleasant time.

We will be back again and again.

 A very good site handy for Cambridge.


- Wifi simply nonexistant in the tent field and shower block.

- Motor home parked next to us on one night who talked until 11:15pm and then were up at 06:20 on Sunday morning riding on a bike with squeeky brake around the site! I had words.

- Some traffic noise from the M11 but as this is a continuous noise not a problem. Trains are much less intrusive but you hear them.


- Fab welcome from Mark.

- Hot showers (unlike Sandringham)

- Very very clean.

- Nice to have a camper field with rabbits who are very used to the humans in tents.

Very easy to get into the city via the local cycle routes. I would give this 10/10 if the wifi worked!

 Due to Covid restrictions facilities were closed. Motorhome service point excellent. I was given a choice of pitches.

Currently the balance to be paid is taken from your bank just before arrival.

Very handy for a regular bus into Cambridge. I did not try the nearby Park and Ride. On my last visit to Cambridge, in a car, they had made car parking free in an attempt to keep cars out of the City, and it was very difficult to find a space, I am not sure what happens to motorhomes.

Gas refills are not available. Staff very helpful.

Site is immaculately maintained.

 Nice friendly reception, guided to our choice of pitch.

Toilets and showers were really spotlessly clean and tidy. Other facility's were very good.

A great site would highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

Good location for us to visit Cambridge and Newmarket.

And very good price too.

Reviewer: BivvyBoy 29 reviews from this member

 Nice enough for what is essentially an urban/suburban site!

The staff were welcoming and helpful, and we got a nice secluded pitch right at the back of the site.

The facilities were typical Club fare - clean, in pwrking order, and plentiful.

We had been at IWM Duxford all day so this a is maybe 15 mins drive away if you need a camping base for that museum.
