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.

we were warned that there was building site noise close to
the site but this was only the bleep of reversing lorry's with the odd bang of rubble dropping into a truck even the air ambulance's and the road ambulances are nothing to the jets we have at home
The arrivals bay could do with realigning as you need to keep well over to the left when towing a caravan or you clip the kerb with your right hand van wheel
We live close to Kings Lynn but found that most of the leaflets in the where to visit were for Kings Lynn or the coast at Hunstanton there was nothing local to the site Wimpole hall Anglessey abbey Shepreth zoo and Linton Zoo are all within ten mile
the park and ride is just up the road although we did not go into Cambridge not even to shop
For anyone who has been to the site before the directions in the book are still correct as we visited the site several years ago since then a new road has been built from the M11 to Addenbrooks hospital
even though the site was reasonably full it was still quiet the noise from the children's play area did not carry around the site
A very well run site by HSMs who care about the look of the site and a very clean toilet block

We arrived to the most friendly welcome from the team at Cambridge, this made our break start fantastically well.. Check in was timely, within in no time we were being shown to out choice of pitches... The site is open plan, very flat and extremely well kept. Facilities were kept clean at all time even with the amount of campers on the site, the wait for facilities - showers - were to a minimum. nothing was too much trouble for the team at Cambridge, friendly and always happy to help. lots to see around the area, not enough days to fit everything in for us, we are definitely visiting this site again. we went into cambridge for one day, fantastic place to chill and take in the sites, then we also visited Ely, beautiful walk down the river, stunning cathedral, lovely shops and market place, a must to visit when in the area. Again a thank you to all the team at the site from the Blackpool bunch... X

Park and Ride into City Centre is only 5 minutes drive away but make sure you have plenty of loose change as the ticket machines don't take notes. (They do take cards).

Facilities always clean. Site is very well maintained. We stayed here for the Tour De France and wow was it worth it!
I do suggest asking for a pitch on the same side as the toilet block though as the building site was behind the hedge and started nice and early banging etc! All was quiet on Sunday and of course during the race day as no traffic could get in or out!
Will definitely return.
Many many wardens need to look at these guys. They are a shining example and a credit to the club.
