Ideal touring base

Originally part of the famous Wimpole Hall Estate and built as a hunts lodge and stables in 1840, these properties are located only 1 mile from Wimpole Hall. The cottages have been restored to a very good standard providing an ideal holiday base for the many attractions Cambridgeshire has to offer. Set amidst 350 acres and in an ’Area of Best Landscape’, the farm surrounds an ancient woodland which is designated as a ’Site of Special Scientific Interest’. Many footpaths and bridleways traverse the farm and woods, giving excellent walks and rides. Duxford Air Museum and Cambridge, 10 miles. Within 25 miles are Saffron Walden, Bedford, Letchworth, Ely, Huntingdon, St Ives and Newmarket for the races. Other local attractions are Denny Abbey, Hamerton Zoo, The Raptor Foundation and the American Cemetery. There are numerous golf courses and riding schools, even go-karting and hot air balloon rides. Shop 21/2 miles, pub 11/2 miles.

    Warm, comfortable, well equipped but some of the furnishings have seen better days (haven't we all) especially the sofas. The location is rural and very close to pleasant walks on the Wimpole estate but Cambridge is also reasonably near (park and ride might be a good option). It looked to me as though the majority of the cottages in the Driftway complex are now on longer term lets rather than holiday bookings.

    A lovely cottage to explore Cambridge and many other interesting places. A car is definitely needed to get about. The cottage has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing time away. The heating didn't come on one morning but it was dealt with very quickly. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Would definitely go again.
