Cambridgeshire, home to the prestigious Cambridge university, is teeming with award-winning parks, nature reserves and dense woodlands. Take your motorhome here for the perfect staycation – whether you want to camp out or simply take in its stunning gothic architecture. Stop in the beautiful city of Peterborough, where you can explore the lovely Ferry Meadows Country Park. Less than three miles from the city centre, the park has an abundance of diverse landscapes – from wildflower meadows and crystal lakes to dense woodlands thick with foliage.
Head to the erudite Cambridge, where you can view the stunning Cambridge College from the Backs – a series of lush parks and gardens. Or if you’d rather get a closer look, take a tour of any of the university’s 31 colleges. Trinity College is home to the Wren Library, designed in 1676 and a place for quiet reflection and learning. Wander the narrow cobbled streets towards King’s College, famous for its Gothic Chapel with fan-vaulted ceilings and huge stained glass windows. This is the perfect spot for those with a love of architecture. Stay for the service and enjoy the ethereal sound of the chapel choir as their angelic voices echo through the chapel.
Take a drive to the Cambridgeshire Fens, which stretch on for 200 miles. Once home to an abundance of sea life, this marshy region now presents a unique landscape to delve into. Take a dip in the River Great Ouse by the quaint riverside town of St Neots, before settling down to a picnic at any of the lovely local parks – from the Riverside Park to the Hinchingbrooke Country Park. At the end of the day, head back to your comfy motorhome hire and fall asleep to the soothing sound of the local wildlife.
