Located in eastern England, the county of Cambridgeshire offers campers a mix of peaceful, rolling countryside and vibrant market towns like Ely, St Neots, Peterborough and St Ives.
Our St Neots Club campsite is set on the banks of the River Ouse in the south of the county – an area ideal for walking and cycling.

More about Cambridgeshire
Head to the south of the county and you’ll find the flat and fertile fens and the town for which Cambridgeshire is probably best known - Cambridge. Think of Cambridge and your first thoughts will most likely be of its world renowned university and leisurely afternoons punting down the river Cam. But, there’s plenty more to enjoy, from galleries and museums to colleges and chapels and a Botanic Garden. You could easily spend more than a day wondering around this historic town, but venture a little further afield you’ll uncover the true beauty of what this wonderful county has to offer.
The lack of hills makes this excellent cycling country. Follow the tow path from Cambridge all the way to Ely or why not walk a stretch of the Ouse Valley Way, a 150 mile stretch of riverside walk that straddles three counties on its way to the sea at Kings Lynn?
Continuing on a watery theme Cambridgeshire is also blessed with one of Europe’s most important wetlands, Wicken Fen, which supports more than 8,0000 species. Explore its nature trails on foot or bike, spy the abundant wildlife from one of the many hides or hop on a boat and cruise the fens many waterways.
