Site details

Why stay here

Set on an ancient quarry, encircled by tall trees and wild flowers is our Cambridge site. The city centre is minutes away and the whole region is criss-crossed with waterways and trails that can be explored on foot and by bike.

The city of Cambridge is rich in history and culture; dotted with museums, theatres and shops. There’s plenty to do like a college tour, punting on the River Cam and seeing the sights on an open-top bus.

Family days out

Come and say hello to the residents of Linton Zoological Gardens, home to lions, tigers, wallabies, lemurs, parrots and reptiles. Alternatively, practice your climbing skills at Clip and Climb, filled with 20 obstacles and a vertical slide – both attractions are within a 15 minute drive from site.

See what the city has to offer by starting with a Cambridge walking tour. Cambridge University has many museums, including the Zoology Museum and the Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences.

Hunt for hidden geocaches around the grassy meadow of Wicken Fen. On this beautiful National Trust nature reserve you might see Konik ponies, highland cattle, bitterns, marsh harriers and cranes

Activities & experiences nearby


Cycling

The city has over 80 miles of cycle tracks so you can explore freely by bike. Details can be found on the  Visit Cambridge website.

Our nearest National Cycle Network route is 11, Essex to Norfolk via Cambridge; followed by route 51, that links Oxford, Cambridge and Colchester.  View Sustrans cycle route map.


Walking

Meander through the Beechwood Nature Reserve, just a mile from us or enjoy waterside walks along the River Cam in the Grantchester meadows.

Visit a local National Trust property such as Anglesey Abbey or Wicken Fen; or follow the trail around the university, through parks and open grounds like Jesus Green and Parker’s Piece.


Things to try

A visit to Cambridge won’t be complete without going punting on the river; similar to a gondola, except you push yourself along with a pole in a flat-bottomed boat. In the evening, book a ghost tour and discover Cambridge’s haunting grounds.

If you’re looking for gift ideas, why not take someone on a flying lesson at Duxford, skydiving just north of Cambridge or give them an animal experience, where you can hold creatures like meerkats, snakes, owls and tarantulas.


Pubs and restaurants

Visitor’s recommendations:

Our closest pubs are the Robin Hood and the Red Lion, serving independently brewed ales and classic pub grub. The closer you get to the city, the denser the peppering of pubs.

Tapas restaurant and bar, The Emperor, is worth a visit in central Cambridge, as is The Old Bicycle Shop; a trendy, open feel bar serving cocktails and hot food.

Take a picnic to Anglesey Abbey or on the banks of the River Cam.
