For holidays in Cambridge, Highfield Farm Touring Park is set in attractive countryside five miles west of the famous city. Family-owned and run, the park comprises 120 pitches for motorhomes, tents and tourers, available from early April until late October.
Surrounded by woodland and spanning eight acres, Highfield Farm is one of the best sheltered holiday parks in Cambridge. The pitches are all placed around the outer edge of the park giving a roomy uncrowded sense of space within the centre of the park. All pitches come with electric hook up and there are water access points throughout the park.
Highfield Farm is sectioned into areas for different types of holiday goers so that families can enjoy the open spaces while couples also have privacy and quiet.
A nature trail 1.5 miles long goes through the park and gives some excellent views with great places to stop and take a break or have a family picnic.
The calm environment of Highfield Farm is perfect for relaxing since the site has no restaurants or bars. If you are looking for a change in pace though, the small village of Comberton is a short trek away, where the village pub is very welcoming. There are plenty of locations serving food and drink throughout the village. If you want to go slightly further afield the park is within easy driving distance of Cambridge which is also close to the M11 motorway, giving you effortless access to the best of Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire and Hertfordshire.
Public transport regularly serves the area running from Comberton into Cambridge, so it's possible to leave the car on-site and enjoy a great day out in the surrounding area. Cambridge contains a good mix of modern shops and restaurants and the cobbled streets and historic buildings are not to be missed. For Cambridge weekend breaks and holidays, Highfield Farm is one of the leading holiday parks in the area.

I have just returned from a weekend break at Highfields and can't recommend it enough. It's location to Cambridge is perfect, and the staff are very helpful even handing out a booklet with all the information you'll need for your stay. The site itself is clean, quiet and perfect if you want a chilled and relaxed holiday. If I ever return to the area for a break, then I will be staying here again.

Highfield is a true gem, peaceful & perfect for relaxing, facilities are very good & clean, hairdryers at 10p a go which lasts long enough to dry your hair properley-great if like me you forget your dryer!, well stocked shop with newspapers on request. The pitches are hard-standing and spacious, the park doesnot have the attitude of 'cram 'em all in' which gives it a spacious feel. There is a couple of swings and a slide but unless your kids are happy to make their own entertainment then this site won't keep them occupied. the park is about a five minute car ride (or a nice stroll) away from shops, post office, nice pubs serving food etc, there are no bars/cafe on the park but a fish 'n' chip van visits every Saturday night which seems to be popular with the locals too. If you want to visit Cambridge then use the many park 'n' ride car parks, it's only £2.20 return (at the time of writing) and the drivers are very pleasent & helpful AND the buses are clean , the park 'n' ride service is great with no hassle of trying to find a car park amongst all those bikes! the park is also within a car ride of Wimpole Hall (great 1940's weekend in September) and also Duxford Air museum, which is brilliant - ever stood underneath a B52 bomber? i hadn't either, wow! what a sight!. All in all this park is lovely and yes we would go again.

My wife and I regularly stay at Highfield Farm, and in our opinion this park is among the best we have visited. It is exceptionally well kept, the pitches are well spaced, and the park is never overcrowded (the pitches are only positioned around the perimeter of the park leaving large grassed areas in the center). The owners, who have run the park for many years, are also very friendly and helpful. Unbelievably, the park also has one of the lowest tariffs around! The beautiful city of Cambridge is only a short drive away, as are many other local attractions and places of interest.
