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

Please do not arrive on site before 1pm due to restricted access to site. All departures by 12pm. Cambridge is very cycle-friendly with easily accessible routes, so it’s worth bringing your bike. Please note that access road has 10mph speed limit.

WiFi

I have been here before and it has got a lot better, new roads refurbished and the facilities greatly improved all around. The site is close to the city of Cambridge with a good bus service all around. There is a play area for the young amongst us and new level pitches for your outfit. also grass for vans or tents and the like. The city has many shops and beautiful things to see and do. the choice is yours

Our first time at a camping and caravan club site but really impressed.

This review is for Cambridge

Our first time at a camping and caravan club site but really impressed. Met with a warm friendly welcome by the staff who couldn't do enough to help us even changing our pitch to suit us. The site is lovely, excellent toilet and shower facilities and near to a bus stop into Cambridge town centre but its the staff that made our visit that pleasurable, we are returning this weekend.

Arrived Friday pm and was greeted immediately by friendly members of staff.

This review is for Cambridge

Arrived Friday pm and was greeted immediately by friendly members of staff. Due to the amount of rain we had had recently, there was a lot of surface water around but this was not a problem and I was so impressed with how clean the whole site was because with water comes mud! We cycled to the Square and Compass pub which did a fab fish and chips on Friday nights (recommend booking) you can walk in about 25 mins. Toilet block is very clean with good showers. Toilet also available when block being cleaned. On Saturday we cycled into Cambridge along the bus pass which was lovely and flat. Loads to see and do. Highly recommend this site and we will be back!
