General

  • Stay in an organic apple orchard 10 miles from Cambridge city centre
  • A 30-minute drive from the National Trust's oldest nature reserve
  • Top spot for stargazing: barbecues and campfires encouraged

Expect a sweet time when you stay at Fen End Farm, for here you shall stay on an organic farm with its own apple orchard a few minutes’ drive from Cambridge. That orchard is a top spot for playing hide and seek with the kids, and also for stargazing – barbecues and campfires are encouraged on site, so pull a log up to the fire and turn your sights skyward.

As its name suggests, Fen End Farm is on the edge of the famed Fens: it's a haven for outdoorsy types and wildlife watchers too, as the oldest nature reserve under the National Trust, the Wicken National Nature Reserve, is nearby. The site and its surrounding 117 acres of farmland also have a sky-high birdlife rating, so keep an eye out for barn owls, lapwings and skylarks… and if birdwatching doesn’t give you wings, there’s a woodland on site for gentle roaming.

The site's Apple Hut has cooking and washing-up facilities; the on-site shower shack has a hot water shower and swish eco compost toilets, and there's a parent and baby washroom too.

Fen End Farm is two miles from its local village of Cottenham, where there are restaurants and pubs, and local produce is available on site. Cambridge's historic colleges, waterways and museums can be easily pedalled to along good local bike paths.

  • Wren bell tent (maximum 4 adults)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Bell tent secure despite strong winds, lovely area to sit and around the fire outside the tent and felt private as plenty of apples trees around each pitch. The staff were extremely friendly and the whole campsite had a really nice atmosphere.

    Disliked: 

    There is only 1 shower, which is fine but it did mean there was a bit of a queue in the mornings.

  • Liked: 

    Great shared kitchen area, lovely orchard setting gives a private feel, very friendly, lovely and small, children loved the chickens and horses and seeing a plane take off on the air strip was the icing on the cake! The children also loved making lollies with the apple juice from the farm with the reusable lollie pouches - a really nice touch.

    Beautiful orchard, the Apple Hut was very useful for keeping things in the fridge/charging phones. The whole site was very calm with the only noise being the occasional tractor/plane and the wind turbine

Un petit paradis de nature !08/07/2019

Reviewer's country: FranceCéline B.Confirmed

    Un camping très original, au coeur d'un verger, écologique à fond les manettes !
    Des sanitaires écolos et très propres, une ferme en pleine activité, dynamique et accueillante.
    Chaque emplacement est ménagé dans une sorte de petit nid, par la tonte des herbes hautes qui peuplent le verger de pommiers. On a donc une réelle intimité : on apreçoit à peine les roulottes et tipis proposés aux adeptes du "glamping", et les tentes voisines sont invisibles, chacun ayant son petit chemin privé.
    Tout est très bien organisé : il y a même une belle cuisine réservée aux randonneurs, où l'on peut se réfugier par temps pluvieux, dans une cabane chaleureuse.

Local attractions

Whether punting on the Cam or sipping an ale at its bankside pubs, you’ll not be bored on a day trip to Cambridge: check out the colleges, the Fitzwilliam Museum and the Museum of Cambridge, then climb the (many) steps of Great St Mary's to see the town from above.

Less than 30 minutes’ drive from Fen End Farm is the city of Ely, home to Ely Cathedral and its famed 14th-century octagonal lantern tower. If you only have time to do two things in Ely, make the cathedral one of them; the other should be a trip to Oliver Cromwell's House, the controversial one's farmhouse home now refurbished to show how it might have looked in Cromwellian times.

Fen End Farm is 20 minutes from the Wicken National Nature Reserve for spotting hen harriers or water voles hiding out in the meadows and reedbeds of its 627-acre expanse. This has been a wildlife haven for aeons: Charles Darwin collected beetles here in the 1820s, and Cambridge boffins have published hundreds of papers throughout the decades on its wildlife.

If you're equestrian-minded, gallop over to the National Stud (a 30-minute drive away) for a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the world of thoroughbred breeding. Wimpole Farm is within half an hour’s drive too – this is a rare breed centre, set amid an 18th-century and modern farmyard.
