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).

Worth Noting

There is no designated Motorhome Service Point on site so a hose and a bucket for emptying the tank will be required.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Eat Local

A weekly countyr market is held in Great Shelford Memorial Hall on Wednesday mornings. Shelford Delicatessen sells home-made sweet and savoury delights.

I rate this site very highly and would give full marks to the refurbished wash block (gents side at least). My wife had a couple of adverse remarks about the ladies side, in that (a) the shower curtain could have been cleaner and (b) the grab rail in the shower was not well positioned. That said, we enjoyed our stay and found the wardens very helpful and pleasant.

I would class this site as a top value site for a short break in Cambridge or a longer stay and area explore. The staff were exellant, very friendly and helpful with a good local knowledge for good pubs and places to eat with also local shops to buy those items we all forget to pack. Plently of buses to get you about the local area and a day rover ticket was less than carpark fees which made leaving the car on site a "no brainer". The only grip is the access road, its a little tight if you meet someone coming the otherway and the speed bumps are a little fierce on the cars clutch and the caravans suspension.

Friendly and informative welcome regarding facilities, area and even good dog walks. Toilet block was very good and warm. Nice little dog walk through wooded area was a bonus so you didn't have to go off site, poop bins as well. The village has nice a butchers ,Tesco express, Co-op and two pubs .Great site and pitches we would definitely return and recommend to family and friends.
