Suffolk, Norfolk, West or NW of London (not great with my counties there!)Its just for one night so doesn't need to have loads of extra facilities.
I heard of a good one near Windsor, by the Thames...

Or please recommend a good website as there are loads and I need to focus!

THE ORCHARD CAMPSITE in Wickham Market, Suffolk.

Great sites near and in Wells-Next-the-Sea, there is one called the Mill Farm that we went to last weekend, we got a train and bus there from Cambridge, definately less that 2 hrs by car.

also, most of the peak district can be reached by car from Cambridge in less that 2 hrs

Thanks I'll look at those but any south of Cambridge as we are two families and the other lives in Surrey so somewhere between the two would be ideal.

Sorry I have never really camped south of cambridge, unless you count Kent, but I only camp there for climbing so couldn't really recommend.

Just seen Cliff House in Dunwich, Suffolk (listed in Times Online). Anyone been there?

If Overmydeadbody can get to most of the Peak District in under 2 hours she most be going it a bit - around 3 hours is more likely.
Tangham, near Woodbridge is very nice and easy to reach via A14.

That is not true lilymaid! shock

Ok, maybe I'm talking about the southern parts of the peak district but I often go there on day trips from Cambrisge to climb and we get there in 1.5 hrs if the traffic is favourable.

Last time we drove to Stanage Edge it took us 1hr 45 minutes. No speeding.

I am hurt at the accusation <<sulks>>

I think there is a nice one at Clippesby, Norfolk - Not stayed there but it has a good reputation locally

Swiss Farm International in Henley is good.

Overmydeadbody - well let's compromise. I get Cambridge - Baslow in 2hours 21 mins according to Via Michelin. We are a little south of Cambridge so it is nearer 3 hours for us, and (confession) we don't always keep to under 70mph west of Huntingdon!
DH does some geriatric climbing in the Peaks occasionally but mainly goes to The Castle.
