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).

So handy having bus stop outside taking you into Cambridge. A fab garden centre just a few yards walk away serving lovely coffee and lunches. Site is level and well maintained. Will definitely be back.

This review is for Cambridge

Stayed for 10 nights June 20th/30th After first night my grandchildren came for a couple of nights and soon went off to the play area, but soon came back saying some children were bullying them and took their scooters. I went to the play area and saw one of the family push my grandson in the back, I spoke to the site staff and told them. I was horrified when it turned out that the family were Irish travellers and were allowed on the site, I never felt safe after that. Also it was obvious to me that a number of pitches were being used as a base for people working in the area, this being not allowed in your T&Cs. Finally on my last day a group of men only about 6 arrived in two cars and a van at 06:15 and all waiting to enter at 07:00 stood by the barrier talking very loudly. My experience at this site makes me feel that the club do not uphold their policies, and I am considering my membership with the club as I fell they have let me down .

A great base for discovering the area. Would recommend the University Gardens.

This review is for Cambridge

A great base for discovering the area. Would recommend the University Gardens. Plenty to see in Cambridge and a trip in a punt gives plenty of photo opportunities. Don't forget to visit Duxford Air Museum. We spent three days there waiting for the wind to drop before I could get up in the two seat Spitfire. Won't get the chance to do that again but we will be back at Cabbage Moor.
