Overview

Explore the university city of Cambridge and its surrounding Fenland landscape from here.

South Cambridgeshire is ideal walking and cycling country – a tranquil and rural landscape interdispersed with gentle rolling hills, beech woods and flat fertile land.

The Club’s pretty Cambridge campsite at Great Shelford, offers an ideal base to explore the area. This level campsite, bordered by trees is just four miles south of the cosmopolitan city of Cambridge.

In addition to its famous university the city offers a range of attractions including museums, art venues, restaurants and bars. Discover the city on foot – there are many walking tours on offer – or take your bike and enjoy the many cycle routes around the city. Further afield the Fens are a pleasant place to spend an afternoon in the saddle with its flat terrain and quaint towns and villages.

During the summer months Cambridge hosts a mezzé of al fresco performances of music in the parks and green spaces as part of the annual Summer in the City programme of events. July sees the city come alive as the Folk Festival takes over and in September the city’s Art Picturehouse hosts the Cambridge Film Festival. No visit to city should be without a punt on the river Cam.

North of the campsite historic Ely has a magnificent cathedral or take a boat trip on the River Great Ouse. The bustling riverside towns of St Ives and St Neots are closeby as is the home of British horse racing – Newmarket.

The National Trust’s Wimpole Hall and Anglesey Abbey, the Imperial War Museum and Denny Abbey and Farmland Museum are popular days out from Cambridge campsite.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

We stayed on the Cambridge Club Site last year for a week and loved it, such a clean and tidy site, immaculate facilities and friendly staff. When we wanted to get away for a quick weekend break recently it was the first place we thought of and we loved it just as much second time around. The new team are really helpful and friendly, the site is immaculate and so well placed for getting into Cambridge (we used Park n Ride at Trumpington), close to Train Station, close to Addenbrookes if you are needing to visit family/friends regularly in hospital, close to Ely and St Neots too. Would recommend a visit to the Cambridge theatre too. Really can't fault the site at all. We will be back :)

Very well run and maintained. Spotless facilities. Plenty of space between units even when busy. Easy bus or bike access into Cambridge centre. General store a few hundred yards away. Supermarket, nice gastro-pub and restaurants within 20 minutes walk. Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

This review is for Cambridge

Very good site for access to Cambridge by bus, either park & rde or use No. 7 just outside camp. We had a very nice meal in pub at Great Shelford, ask wardens for leaflet and 10% discount. Good clean site with excellent washroom, if you have children pitch on side where play area is. The wardens are very friendly and will try to answer any queries you have and always with a smile. We wil;l definitely be visiting again.
