    Beautiful Barn, extremely well equipped, walking distance to the Pub, food very reasonably priced. Walking distance to Witham Fen ( National Trust) worth a visit. Plenty of footpaths for flat walking. Soham three miles away over the footpaths. One coffee shop there, Asda and Co-op. Five miles by car to Stretham where there is a post office stores. So remember your milk when out, as Witham does not have any shops. But Stretham does have a good take away Fish and Chip shop. Short car ride to Cambridge and Ely, you need a car, the bus only goes once a week on a Thursday to Soham! But we thoroughly our week and would recommend Barrow Barn.

    Very spacious and comfortable barn. Short walk to Wicken Fen and short drive to several other nature reserves. Cambridge park and ride only 20 mins away.

    An excellent venue, particularly as it was all on one level with 3 en-suite bathrooms with walk-in showers. Ideal for 2 of our party with mobility issues. Unfortunately there were problems with the road into Wicken which meant a long detour - obviously not the fault of the owners, but an inconvenience to us. We would definitely recommend this cottage & will hopefully return again ourselves.

    Lovely property which was much larger than it looks in the photographs. It was very well equipped. Nice garden with sheep on the other side of the fence. The village itself is very pretty.

    A lovely property in every way. A few more extras would be welcomed to make it a home from home experience. E.g. a fan for the hot weather, activities/ games for children, etc. The bowl of fruit and milk in the fridge was most appreciated. We were given a friendly welcome though able to maintain privacy.

    Very nice converted Barn in a very peaceful countryside setting but also very close to Cambridge where our children attended English lessons.

    Had a lovely time in this cottage as plenty of room. Beds were comfy and we had everything we needed. WiFi wasn't that great but that may have been a blessing??!
