    Very clean & well equipped. Met by Lionel, very welcoming but then left alone. Very close to relatives that we were visiting & much better than a hotel room.

    Had a great comfortable stay, cosy and well heated. Good location for many attractions. Park n Ride 10 mins away £3 return to Cambridge, very easy. Local bus stops at the end of the lane but takes 45 mins as goes around the villages. Everything available for self catering with a Morrison's nearby. Pub cheap, typical pub food, family noise etc. Was delighted to see a black squirrel on the woodpile with the greys. Woodland Trust walk next door. Appreciated the welcome tea tray and DVD's. Smoke alarm does not like the toaster ! Dogs next door were no bother at all, did not actually see the owners but sounded nice on the phone and visitors book was complimentary of them! Lovely stay would stay again as lots to do in the surrounding area and several National Trust properties too. Recommended.

    just what was needed for a relaxing long weekend. Such a nice accommodation and Hosts. Our own fault relying on postcode but we eventually found the turning.. welcome pack was a lovely touch as were the information leaflets and timetables etc. Indian restaurant Lionel recommended was also very good. Comfortable bedroom with enough storage space, clean bathroom and living/kitchen area. The only minus point was using downstairs toilet during the night but that's our personal opinion. We recommend this cottage and would definitely stay here again without hesitation.

    Excellent for a quiet break but within easy reach of Cambridge and the Imperial War Museum at Duxford. Also quick access to the M11 and London.

    We had a nice stay here, cottage fully equipped and clean and tidy. Easy access to Cambridge by both bus and car, Great nature walk very close by. Owners friendly and helpful. Our only problem was that it is very close to the owners house and they have two large dogs who my husband was fearful of, I found them friendly. Good nearby take away for good food. Local pub very noisy and brash, not for us.
