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.

    Lovely relaxing cottage. We only needed two bedrooms but super to have a feeling of space. Great big table in the kitchen for family meals and garden enclosed for our dog which is not always the case in cottages that allow dogs. 10 minutes from the house and you can be on a train to Cambridge which is beautiful. There were dog walks near the house but the weather was not great for our week so wellies needed. Children enjoyed the park zip slide too. We did find the lack of a drier an issue, especially with children; we did put clothes over the radiators- handy to have so many. Also with a long estate car, it was difficult to get out and in the gate as cars were always parked along the road directly opposite the gate. It took some negotiating!

    This is a great cottage. I stayed with my parents, my sons aged 12 and 10 and our dog. The cottage is well kitted out, clean and feels very cosy. We had a wonderful week there.
