Description

Affording every comfort for an enjoyable holiday Chittering Farm is comfortably furnished and makes an excellent choice for families.

Chittering Farm sits in the privacy of the owners’ arable farm and is accessed by a private road, and is conveniently situated between Cambridge and Ely. The house was rebuilt from an old barn and affords every comfort for an enjoyable and relaxing stay. Surrounded by open countryside the property is an excellent choice for large family get togethers or friendly reunions that require spacious accommodation. It is the ideal base to explore Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk. There are cycle routes to Cambridge and Ely easily accessed from the farm. Some guests may prefer to relax in the private 1-acre garden with its 4-acre paddocks and enjoy the facilities on-site or nearby. Guest will find an aqua park and wakeboarding located on the farm and bookable via the owner (at cost). There is also a tennis net and a large football goal in the garden, while a games room offers table tennis and a pool table. Ely Leisure village 5½ miles has swimming pools, multi-screen cinema, health club, eateries and a driving range with 9 hole golf course, and fishing is available locally. A stay here will also provide the opportunity to enjoy the rural location of the farm, with farm and river walks, bird watching and cycling. Located on the edge of the farm is the Stretham Old Engine, erected in 1831, an example of a land drainage engine.
The city of Cambridge is 10 miles away, famous for its colleges, museums, tours and botanical gardens, where visitors can also try their hand at punting on the River Cam or enjoy a wealth of shops, cafés and restaurants. The city of Ely with markets and local shopping is 6 miles away in the other direction, steeped in history with its impressive medieval cathedral and long river frontage where you can enjoy a boat trip or riverside walk. If you fancy a trip to the beach the North Norfolk coast is less than 50 miles away, the Royal Sandringham Estate less than 40 miles, and Thetford Forest, famous for its walk and cycle routes only 35 miles away. National Trust properties can be found at nearby Wicken Fen, 5 miles, and Anglesey Abbey and gardens 13 miles. Newmarket is also 13 miles with music nights and race days, and the Imperial War Museum at Duxford is 24 miles. So there is plenty of scope if you feel like exploring the area during your stay. There is a pub within 1 mile with access through the farm and a shop in the local village of Stretham 2 miles.

    Absolutely fantastic. Unforgettable weekend. Stayed with a group of eleven girls, very spacious and private. Great day out at Newmarket horse racing and an easy trip to Cambridge. Would 100% go back.

    Spacious & comfortable, we were a group 9 friends & dog & all enjoyed the stay.We were met by the very helpful owner,& generous welcome pack. Despite the freezing weather the house was always warm,the kitchen was hugh with a lovely lounge for those that needed some peace. The Lazy Otter was 1.1 miles across the farm track for Sunday lunch ,very friendly & welcoming The garden was paradise for our dog to play ball in & surrounded by open land ,no sheep. There are miles of walks along river Ouse. Would not hesitate to book again.

    Very friendly greeting on arrival, immediately offered us a late check out on our last day as not booked on our departure day. Excellent cottage, well laid out with large fully equipped kitchen, large main lounge (2nd lounge for those that want to be anti-social !) and 6 spacious bedrooms. The table tennis and pool tables in the barn were an added bonus for us. Highly recommended.

    We had a wonderful family holiday stay - our second visit. With 3 generations, and many people to accommodate, we struggle to find quality accommodation with the right 'fit' of bedrooms for our combination of couples and children. Chittering Farm provides a fantastic solution. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The dining room table provides seating for all, and the 2 sitting rooms are ideal when children want to play noisy games and some grown ups want to watch the rugby. The barn next door with the games room is ideal - we even braved it, unheated, in December, for after dinner ping pong and pool. And the children loved the trampoline during the day. The owners are so friendly and helpful. I'd highly recommend it for a weekend break for a large family gathering. We'll be back soon...

    Fab venue for large group. Near enough to Cambridge, Bury and Ely for shops etc, walking distance of a pub. Hope to come back in the summer to make more use of the outside.

    Beautiful cottage and very well equiped. Lovely welcome from owners and appreciated the welcome pack. It was quite remote, with no good walks from the front door. However, there are lots of nice villages & walks in the area. Would definitely recommend!

    Chittering Farm proved an excellent and relaxing base for our reunion with 9 "old friends". The spacious cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The owner was friendly and welcoming and met us to explain access etc and the gift of fresh vegetables was very kind. The grounds and equipment was fantastic. We especially enjoyed the table tennis. We are looking forward to returning soon!
