Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Explore all this amazing area has to offer and retreat back to Breeds Farm Cottage to relax and unwind after a busy day.

In a great location for exploring the area and with a lovely garden to relax in, Breeds Farm Cottage has been decorated and furnished with care, to offer a period retreat with all the modern conveniences needed for a great holiday. Nestled in the heart of the pretty Cambridgeshire village of Wicken, there is so much to do in the area; ensuring guests of all ages will be entertained for days. Close by lies the charming city of Ely, with its magnificent cathedral rising so majestically that it has long been known as ‘The Ship of the Fens’. Here you will find lots of shops, great places to eat, a stained glass museum which is well worth a visit and also Oliver Cromwell’s house. Ely also provides a direct rail link to London and you can be in the heart of the city in just over an hour. Although only a short drive away, you can also take the train to the university city of Cambridge. It is packed full with museums, including the famous Fitzwilliam Museum and tours, such as punting on the River Cam and walking tours around the universities. The Imperial War Museum, Duxford, hosts to an impressive collection of airplanes and aviation memorabilia, considered the finest of its kind in the UK. For a change of pace, head to Welney Wetland Centre and explore the area’s rich array of wildlife. For some sea air, you can be at the coast in just over an hour. Guests will find walking and cycle routes, and numerous pretty villages and towns, where you will see why this part of Cambridgeshire remains so popular with visitors. After a day of sightseeing, head back to beautiful Breeds Farm Cottage and relax in the garden or sunroom whilst planning your adventures for the next day. Shop and restaurant 3 miles, pub ¼ mile.

    We loved staying at this beautiful cottage. The owners have thought of everything their guests might need. It really feels like a home from home. We would love to return to explore the area in a warmer season.

    nice cottage plenty of walks close. we found there could be a lot more potential, furnishings ,kitchen and bathroom tired and dated.As for the bbq needs replacing old and rusty and could not use. but overall enjoyed our stay .

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner:- Dear Robert, Thank you for taking the time to write a review as we are always trying to learn how we can do things better and reviews are so important for all our future bookings so we take each one to heart. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay overall, but very sorry that the BBQ did not meet your expectations. We have now swapped this with our own family BBQ set (which is a newer Outback model). Indeed we wish you had mentioned this while you were staying with us as we are genuinely happy to do whatever we can to help as we are usually not far away and could have easily popped it round when we gave you the wine samples after our wine tasting that week….I guess we’re not really barbecue connoisseurs I’m afraid! We would also like to say in defence of our cottage, that we have deliberately tried to keep to the period style as it is Grade II listed, so have furnished it with antiques and retained the vintage apple-green bath (with a modern shower above) as a feature as can be seen on the pictures. We were sad to hear that this seems ‘dated’ to you, as it was only refurbished quite recently and we have only ever had encouraging feedback from guests who seem to love the traditional style and often comment that they find it very comfortable. Nevertheless we will of course take your views into consideration as we update Breeds Farm Cottage ongoing. Many thanks again and best wishes from Sarah & Andrew

    A pretty old cottage centrally situated in Wicken. It was very comfortable, especially the twin beds in the downstairs bedroom. Hosts were welcoming but not intrusive. Private garden and facilities for barbeque were charming. Good parking. I would recommend it to all my friends.

    A lovely little cottage and perfect for two. Very cosy and warm and nicely decorated and very nice owners. Everything one needs for a holiday in the Cambridgeshire fens. Short walk from the cottage and you're in the fens. Close to Cambridge ( go early in the day before it turns into Disneyland ) and Ely with some lovely gardens and NT houses nearby. And if haven't been to Duxford, go. But you'll need all day.

    One of the nicest cottages we have stayed in. Conveniently located for all attractions around Cambridge. Wicken Fen is a 10 minute walk. A lovely quiet village setting and the cottage had a nice porch and garden to relax in. The cottage was very well equipped and had everything we needed for a week's stay. The provisions left by the owners was a lovely touch and very welcome after a long drive. The owners were very friendly and accommodating but not intrusive. I would stay there again, highly recommended.

    An extremely good place to stay with very helpful and welcoming hosts. A beautiful location with good access to attractions on foot or by car. Easy access to Ely and Cambridge (park and ride). The cottage was very clean and comfortable to relax in or as a base.
