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

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Excellent site Very good facilities - should be the norm for future site upgrades.

This review is for Cambridge

Excellent site Very good facilities - should be the norm for future site upgrades. Clean and tidy, reasonable shop, friendly and helpful staff. Easily accessible from M11/A14 once you work out not to go near Cambridge centre. Only downside, which is probably not under the control of the Club, are the tank traps in Cabbage Moor lane. This has a 10 mph speed limit. If you stick to 10 then you will have your suspension off. Max speed with caravan 1 mph or less!

Everything about this site is good. Pleasant hard working staff and well kept and maintained. Hard standings are the real deal. Very quiet at night- so peaceful. Park and ride nearby, Waitrose and easy access to countryside. Excellent for cyclists. Well done to all the staff.

This review is for Cambridge

First time at Cambridge site easy access to the site even with our twin axle caravan also easy reversing onto pitch as I don't have motor mover. Next morning we asked for directions to Cambridge from site on foot very helpful staff and off we set, followed guided bus route into Cambridge had agreat time in Cambridge and walked back to site in all 11 miles walked. The site it's self is very clean showers also and hot plenty of room for everybody caravans, motorhomes and camping you could be in the country side it's that peaceful. Their is plenty for the kids and families to do, if you don't fancy walking into Cambridge there is a park and ride which takes you to the centre of town just watch out for the bikes! I would come back this site as one it's close for us but most of all it's friendly and clean, have agreat stay at Cambridge club site.
