    Very happy with everything. Bus stop into Cambridge just outside. Morrisons, Chemists Take Away and a Pub with Good reasonably priced food all close by. The cottage was lovely and comfortable with heating available all day.

    Lovely cottage in a great location. Whether you have a car or use public transport Cambridge is very easy to reach. The owners of the cottage have ensured that all the little extras are available to make holiday very comfortable. Highly recommended.

    This cottage is absolutely delightful! The owners are lovely and helpful. They could not have been nicer. They gave us a really nice welcome pack and lots of up to date maps and guides to the area also. The lounge/diner/kitchen are laid out in such a way that it feels very spacious. Everything you need is there, but it was the little extras that made it so good. For example there were spare bin bags and extra kitchen roll, good selection of DVD's and books. We felt very well cared for. We could just walk to the supermarket which was in a complex with a restaurant and a Home Bargains. We will definitely go back.
