Gayton Farm: Dome deck and view

General

  • Quiet site on a working farm in the village of Horningsea
  • Five miles from Cambridge; easy trip by bike or public transport
  • A few minutes' walk from local pubs and fishing on the River Cam

Now here’s a place that’s really got that cracking country/city location right on the money… Gayton Farm is in the quiet village of Horningsea, surrounded by views out over Cambridgeshire fields and yet only five miles from the buzz of Cambridge city centre.

A peaceful spot it may be, but you’ll not be alone – the working farm’s home to a handsome herd of Lincoln Red cows, there are ponies next door and wilder guests (deer, owls and the like) can be spotted passing by regularly too. For a bit more company, it’s a 10-minute wander down to the village to sample the offerings of the two local pubs (one of which will even serve you up a tasty breakfast to be going on with) or treat yourself to a cake in the café.

A bike’s a bright idea around these parts – a 20-minute ride along the River Cam allows you to mingle with the clever college types down in Cambridge, or pedal off for a pint in a riverside pub. If you’re not so happy tottering on two wheels, it’s still pretty easy to get around, either by car (the A14’s just down the road) or using the local bus or train.

However you roam, you’ll be returning to a cosy glamping spot where a firepit awaits. Clean modern toilets and showers are part of the mix too.

Beautiful caravan, great facilities, great location10/03/2022

    We stayed in the gypsy caravan and it was even better than we thought it would be! The caravan is beautiful, it has its own private corner with own fire pit and picnic table, it looks out onto beautiful uninterrupted views of fields. The first morning we woke up to an incredible sunrise and there were deer walking through the field. The caravan has a log burner and it was so cosy. The owners are lovely, facilities are great. Would definitely come and stay again and highly recommend! Also only a 25 minute cycle into central Cambridge but in a nice quiet village, perfect location.

    The geodome was very clean and well equipped. It had everything we and our dogs needed for a comfortable stay, all necessities and extras such as unlimited wood for the burner in the dome and outside firepit. The dome window and seating area (including firepit) had a lovely view over the farm. The farm is located in a quiet village that has two lovely pubs in easy walking distance, one is village owned. The village also has a garden centre that serves food all day and road connections are excellent being only a mile from the A14 and the M11. There are varied walks from the dome door, including riverside paths. Therer is no wifi on site but for me this was a benefit.

    We loved our gypsy caravan. It was the perfect place for a relaxing weekend away. It was so snug with beautiful views from the bed. We brought our bikes and cycled to Waterbeach then down the towpath to Cambridge for the sights before going on to Grantchester for tea snd cake returning along the river again to chillout by the fire. We loved testing out our cooking on the open fire and managed dinner and breakfast. The washing and shower facilities were immaculate. Would definitely return.

Little gem in the middle of the countryside06/14/2021

    Very easy to find, we were welcomed by Carolyn who took us to our dome and showed us around (all covid friendly).

    This is a little gem in the middle of the countryside, although next to a campsite, we had no noise at all, with our very own toilet/shower/double bed and all the chairs we could need. We sat on the decking area to enjoy our dinner, before moving inside to the table and chairs to play cards and watch the cows and max the horse enjoy their nighttime routines.

    would highly recommend to our friends and family

Local attractions

A day trip to Cambridge is a mighty fine idea – mingle with some of the country’s brightest brains as you tour the gorgeous colleges, visit the museums (the arty collections at the Fitzwilliam Museum and Kettle’s Yard are top picks) or get to grips with a punting pole to propel yourselves down the River Cam. It’s an easy 20-minute ride along the riverbank if you’re going by bike, or you can flag down a bus nearby.

Away from the city, there are plenty of attractions scattered nearby. Anglesey Abbey (10 minutes by car) has a whopping 98 acres of landscaped grounds to wander through, and another excellent stash of art; Wimpole Hall (25 minutes) is a similarly grand estate with the added bonus of cute farm animals. More recent history is on display at the Imperial War Museum Duxford (25 minutes), where you can get up close to Concorde and lots of other flying machines.

Keeping it very local, you can fish on the Cam a few minutes away, play golf or footgolf a couple of miles away. Horseback hacks and a wakeboarding park are about 15 minutes’ drive away.

Must see

  • Anglesey Abbey, Gardens and Lode Mill (3.5 kilometres)
  • Kings College Chapel (6.5 kilometres)
  • Fitzwilliam Museum (6.7 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Anglesey Abbey, Gardens and Lode Mill (3.5 kilometres)
  • Wicken Fen National Nature Reserve (10.5 kilometres)
