Find cottages in Cambridgeshire

Cambridgeshire offers a uniquely English experience; a rich history, stunning heritage and tranquil rural landscapes. Many of Cambridgeshire’s attractions are closely linked with some of the key events in English history, so a holiday in the region allows you to engage your mind as well as relax your body to make a truly memorable break.

Access to Trinity College in Cambridge may be limited but it is open to the general public from time to time. Founded by Henry VIII, and boasting the apple tree that shared the concept of gravity with Isaac Newton, the college is one of Cambridge’s real treasures. Even if you don’t gain access the exterior architecture is more than enough reason to pay a visit.

Equally stunning displays of historical buildings can be found at King''s College Chapel. Renowned for its incredible acoustics and Gothic architecture, it’s a veritable feast for the eyes and has a most interesting past; make sure you read up before visiting!

The Imperial War Museum in Duxford is one of the most popular attractions for those with a passion for more recent history, offering a unique account of the First and Second World Wars, where you can explore the large airfield and wander amongst some of the world’s most iconic aircraft.

The city of Ely is steeped in history and is principally known for its magnificent cathedral and also the place where Oliver Cromwell resided for ten years; his house can still be viewed today.

While history plays a large part in the regions attractions the landscape itself stands out for its wealth of natural charms. If you fancy a truly relaxing day out then a punt down the River Cam is one of the best ways to get a feel for the place.

Due to a naturally low-lying geography a holiday in Cambridgeshire is well suited to those who want to get out and about without taxing themselves too much. Of note is Holme Fen, believed to be the lowest land point in Great Britain and a protected National Nature Reserve, which makes the region a great draw for nature lovers.

Take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Cambridgeshire to find your perfect retreat.

    Centrally located in the sought after Marlowe House building and with pretty views over the River Cam, this beautifully appointed one bedroom apartment has been decorated and furnished to high standards to provide guests with a relaxing base from which to explore the vibrant city of Cambridge. On the first floor, with a lift, it provides well presented single level accommodation. A series of linked landscaped courtyards provide direct access on to Midsummer Common and on to the river bank itself, offering the feel of rural surroundings, even though the property lies within the heart of the city. Located just a 15-minute walk from Cambridge city centre and the River Cam, this property has been beautifully decorated and furnished to provide a luxurious, light and airy base. It is a statement that is often over used but there is literally something for everyone to be found within Cambridge. The Grafton Shopping Centre can be reached in a 5-minute walk. History buffs will be spoilt for choice with numerous museums and galleries scattered amongst the striking colleges. Here you will find the striking Fitzwilliam Museum with collections ranging from the ancient world to conservation. Shoppers will be delighted too, with a good mix of department stores, high street favourites and boutique shops. Pretty all year round, Cambridge sparkles at Christmas and is a great place for a pre-Christmas shopping break. There are lots of tours of this bustling city on offer too, from historical walking tours taking in the colleges to ghost walks, that bring to life local legends. Foodies will find lots of great places to eat, from artisan cafes to high end restaurants and bustling bars. Cambridge really is a great day and night destination. There is so much to do on the doorstep that many guests just park their car on arrival and don’t use it again until they leave, but if you do want to explore the surrounding area, there’s lots to choose from, including The Imperial War Museum Duxford, Ely Cathedral, Welney Wetland Centre and the Stained Glass Museum. Whatever you choose to do, you will have made a great choice to stay at the light and airy Camstay property as it is the perfect place to relax, unwind and dream of tomorrow’s sightseeing adventures, while snuggled up in Egyptian cotton sheets.

The owners have a keen interest in interior design and it really does show, making this the perfect choice for discerning guests looking for something extra special for their getaway. Close to both Newmarket and Ely and within easy reach of Cambridge, this is a great area to explore if you can tear yourself away from the peace and quiet of this lovely holiday cottage. Quaint Ely has a magnificent cathedral, which dates back to the 12th century, and regular tours are offered. It is a great place to potter, explore the shops and stop for a bite to eat. Don’t miss out on the Stained Glass Museum, described by locals as ?the gem in the fens?, and history fans can explore Oliver Cromwell’s House. The Lord Protector of England lived in Ely for 10 years and the house is the only surviving former Cromwell residence other than Hampton Court, and has been recreated to show how his family would have lived in the mid 17th century.
    Newmarket offers horseracing, concerts and many events. Culture vultures should head to Cambridge, with its numerous museums and colleges. Many of the University of Cambridge’s eight museums are free to enter and offer trails and activity packs for children. There are also many independent galleries and exhibitions displaying pieces from local and international artists. Cambridge is home to the prestigious Fitzwilliam Museum, which is the arts and antiquities museum for the University of Cambridge. The Imperial War Museum at Duxford is within easy reach and houses an impressive collection, offering an insight to the history of aviation in both times of peace and war.
