A bright, modern home providing all amenities, just a 30 minute drive from the historic cathedral city of Cambridge.

Once the old village bakery (and more recently a shop), this pretty detached cottage has been totally renovated providing a spacious, bright and airy holiday home. With beams, an exposed brick wall and natural floors, it exudes much character yet provides all modern amenities, and is set in a slightly elevated position overlooking a cottage garden with an abundance of wisteria. Close by is the historic city of Ely with imposing cathedral, attractive river and good selection of individual shops, pubs, restaurants and tearooms. Within a 30-minute drive lies the city of Cambridge with its art galleries, colleges, botanical gardens and punts on the River Cam. Also close by is Newmarket for stud farms and racing. Shop 400 yards, pub 100 yards.

Large beamed living room with wood-burning stove in brick fireplace. Beamed kitchen/dining room with TV. Utility. Single bedroom. Shower room with toilet. First floor: Four bedrooms; one double, one twin and two single. Bathroom with separate shower cubicle and toilet.

    The Old Bakery offered us a lovely holiday, accommodation allowed my teenage children to bring their partners. The garden could have been a little more secure for our dog. But overall we had an amazing holiday in a wonderful scenery, and not being overlooked in the wonderful garden.

    This is a lovely place to stay. All the amenities inside the property were great. Garden was fun if we wanted to enjoy the surroundings and not go anywhere. Nice to go for walks as well. Ely only about 2 1/2 miles away. We aim to come back.

    When we arrived we were very pleased with the cottage appearance and little extras such as milk, biscuits and dish washer powder. We were a group of 3 couples but knew that 2 of us would have to be in single rooms - it might be useful to know that the single rooms do not have access to the upstairs toilet at night - it meant we had to rearrange our sleeping arrangements as 3 of us have slight mobility issues. Everyone we met in the village were really helpful and friendly. A nice relaxing break.

    The Old Bakery was a lovely place to stay - my friends and I had a wonderful weekend. Really good showers, very comfy beds, extremely spacious and everything we could have needed for a weekend. Nice quiet area, we enjoyed a couple of walks and went into Ely for an afternoon. It's a conversion and the doors are all wooden with latches, so a touch creaky and noise travels a lot, but we enjoyed our rustic escape to the country! The owners were really helpful and friendly, especially when we foolishly packed one of our party off home on the train with the key to the cottage. Thanks for a lovely stay.
