    We had a very relaxing and comfortable stay in a quiet area, very close to various attractive day trip destinations. Our hosts were very pleasant and respected our privacy - as we did theirs.

    We really enjoyed the stay. The house was great for 5 of us, really comfortable and a good location in that it was amidst lots of nice little towns. A lovely view out over fields and great sunrises and sunsets.

    Fantastic place and worth the stay. Since we were visiting friends in the area we were using it as a sleepover point only.

    Great location - ideal for a trip to the races - local pub worth a look and if you need a cab ask for Rachels number - superb

    Excellent holiday home, well equipped, completely comfortable, very spacious, very secluded, very quiet. Situated in flat fenland, with great views, large skies, and a good range of wildlife - we saw hares and red-legged partridges, and sometimes deer visit as well. If you like exploring cities, then Ely is nearby, and Cambridge isn't too far either. Wicken Fen is run by the National Trust, and is very accessible. We came here specifically to visit nearby family, but if you're looking for somewhere to get away from it all I can thoroughly recommend The Stables.

    Cosy, comfortable, spacious and ideal base for visiting all the attractions in the area particularly Wicken Fen. Good pubs nearby and easy access to park and ride for Cambridge. Nice open views and lovely sunsets.

    The low location score reflects remoteness from Cambridge, but this is only relative, so a bit harsh, and if one is interested in Ely or Newmarket you would give a higher score. Certainly the environment of the location is very good, and the size cleanliness and equipment is amongst the best we have seen.

    That this is our third stay here speaks for itself. Comfortable, practical and welcoming.

    Excellent house that we've liked so much that we've come back to for a second stay. Very quiet location, very comfortable, and well equipped. We have stayed in several other houses in the area, and this is now our first choice. Highly recommended. The owners live nearby. They don't intrude, but are very friendly and helpful, and have a lovely little dog!

    The stables is stunning the reason I gave an 8 for location is that you need a car to get about. It was perfect for our stay but a taxi ride to Ely is 20 pounds

    Lovely rural cottage. Only negatives are there is no bath, you have to walk through one of the twin bedrooms to get to the master bedroom and it would really benefit from a patio area and garden furniture at the back of the property to sit out and watch the amazing sunsets.
