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).

Had two excellent nights at this site to visit Cambridge and as a stopover on route to Norfolk.

This review is for Cambridge

Had two excellent nights at this site to visit Cambridge and as a stopover on route to Norfolk. Very nice clean site and well managed. The site wardens do a great job of keeping this site looking lovely and peaceful which you would expect from a club site. Toilet facilities are very clean and ample room with nice hot showers. There is also a very good dog walk, kids play area and motor home service point. This is a very good site to explorer Cambridge. Just outside the site to the left you can get the number 7 bus. We bought an all day bus pass so we could hop on/off as much as we liked. Cambridge is a beautiful city to explore we had a lovely time here and used our bus pass to go back into the city in the evening. Also just outside the site next to the bus stop is a local shop if you forget anything. If you want a pint or something to eat there is a very nice pub about 20 min walk away called the Hudson Ale house. We popped in for a pint and it was dog friendly and a nice place to eat.

We stayed for 4 nights in October 2017.

This review is for Cambridge

We stayed for 4 nights in October 2017. The site has been significantly improved since we were last here 4 years ago. There are now more hard standings and the toilet block has had a major refresh. It is now much cleaner, brighter and warmer. The site could do with a bit more lighting to light the way after dark and all the bins are in the one place behind the toilet block, but it is a great place to stay to meet up with friends and enjoy the sights of Cambridge.
