We loved our stay here. The position is fantastic. The beautiful Cathedral out of one window and the parish church out of the other one. Town centre very close and small supermarket on the doorstep. Spotlessly clean and warm, with plenty of hot water. We cooked a lot and found everything we needed in the kitchen. Welcoming Christmas decorations when we arrived and a lovely tree in the garden. Also a plate of homemade mince pies! Delicious. On New Year's Eve we returned to find a clean cottage and two small bottles of Prosecco for us....very much appreciated. There is plenty of space, even when our granddaughter visited. Great to have a bathroom and a cloakroom.

We hope to return soon. Thank you.

P.s perhaps a full length mirror would be nice!

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. The Cottage was clean, cute and well furnished and just what we needed for a quiet weekend away. When we were arrived there was a card from the owners and some home baked rocky road which was absolutely delicious (i meant to ask for the recipe), its was such a nice touch and made us smile. We cooked whilst we were there and there was all the appliances we needed and nice one at that! The cottage is in a nice quite area but walk-able to the cathedral which is very impressive and a short drive to Cambridge. I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and if was going to be really picky I would say the bed was a bit hard but each to their own as some people prefer that. We contacted the owners once during our stay and they were very helpful and even let us have a late checkout on our departing day. I would definitely stay again.

Thanks :)
