The recent late summer warm weather provided the perfect excuse if any were needed for further adventures in the Bedford Bambi Campervan; it had been a very busy few days at work so we were looking forward to a jolly relaxing weekend!
We’d left it rather late to book, but success came just a few phone calls later and we were on our way to Comberton, a pretty little village just about six miles from Cambridge city centre.
Our destination and base for the weekend was Highfield Farm Touring Park run with amazing attention to detail by the lovely Beverley and crew. We usually avoid the larger organised sites, preferring the more relaxed approach, however we were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Highfield to find a beautifully manicured site which offered an element of privacy through clever planting of the hedgerows.
Our allocated pitch was at the farthest end of the camp, conveniently placed for access to the extensive dog walking routes through the local farmland.
It doesn’t take long to set-up camp, especially with the help of Herbie, the mischievous Miniature Schnauzer! We’ve spent many weekends away in the Bambi so it’s quite a practised routine now we’ve got the hang of it.
Although we spent many happy hours wandering through the stunning countryside, of course no weekend away is complete without a visit to the local hostelry!
The pub in question is the rather charming Three Horseshoes where we found the staff to be friendly, super-efficient and the standard of food was just right. There’s plenty of parking; a lovely beer garden and patio area and especially important, it’s dog-friendly!
There is a designated dog-exercise area and a walk around the farm is about 1.5 miles offering stunning views of the village and surrounding Cambridgeshire countryside.
So we certainly succeeded in our mission of having a jolly relaxing weekend, Highfield Farm is definitely on the list for a return visit, highly recommended!
