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.

    The property was spacious in a peaceful location. We were a group of 6, it would have been better if there was more cutlery. We just had to wash up between courses!

    Overall a nice cottage in a area for visiting places of interest but what let it down was the kitchen equipment particularly a carving knife with a very loose handle that I mentioned at the beginning but not replaced old fly strips hanging from the curtain rails lack of hangers in wardrobes .It just needs somebody to go round and take a closer look then it will make all the difference .

    Woodpecker cottage is spacious,clean and well furnished. However it does need more crockery and cutlery, and additional kitchen equipment, as a group of 3 we managed but it would have been inadequate for 6.
