Nestled in beautiful, open Cambridgeshire countryside, Wood Fen Lodges have been thoughtfully converted and decorated to provide all the home comforts that discerning guests need for a relaxing getaway. In a quiet location with exposed beams, cosy wood burner and private use of a hot tub (by arrangement), there really is nothing more you could need for a perfect break. Some guests may choose not to venture far, instead deciding to relax in their private garden, or perhaps book themselves in for a spa treatment at the on site spa (at cost), where refreshments are also available.

Those wishing to explore the area will have chosen well with so much to see and do nearby. The university city of Cambridge offers numerous museums, including the famous Fitzwilliam, lots of walking tours, including university routes, punting, shopping and great places to eat. You should also make time for the open top bus tour, which gives an insight into the history of this fascinating city. And, why not take a trip to Norwich with its impressive Norman castle overlooking a fine city full of attractions and things to do? History buffs will also enjoy a visit to the Hanseatic Old Quarter of Kings Lynn, The Royal Sandringham Estate or the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, which offers up an impressive collection detailing the history of aviation, including several aircraft. In fact, this may well be your only chance now to say that you’ve been on Concorde!

For a change of pace and some refreshing sea air, you can be in Hunstanton in less than an hour. Here you will find a wide sandy beach that seems to go on forever, a small funfair, a Sealife Centre, Norfolk Lavender and lots of seaside shops and cafes. Closer to home lies the bustling city of Ely with its impressive cathedral, nicknamed ‘The ship of the Fens’ because of the way it rises up on the horizon. Here you will find a fascinating stained glass museum, which offers a rare insight to this beautiful art form.

Bustling Newmarket is close by and offers a famous racecourse which often hosts musical entertainment evenings. For breathtaking countryside, visit Thetford Forest with its numerous walks and cycle routes, and its Go Ape centre, featuring tree walks, zip wires and Tarzan swings. And, after all your adventures, you can head back to Wood Fen Lodges, unwind, relax (perhaps in the hot tub?) and dream of places yet to see. Just perfect! Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
Property refs UKC563 and UKC564 can be booked together to accommodate up to 10 guests.

    Lovely, relaxing friendly cottage. Bit remote without car - on a country road which tended to be busy with early morning “cut through” traffic, travelling at speed.

    We had a lovely stay at reed cottage 25/02/19 for our 5 year anniversary and would stay there again it had everything we needed comfy beds, large bath towels, decent showers and everything in the kitchen you could want, there was tea coffee sugar milk eggs butter bread biscuits and a bottle of wine there when we arrived such a nice gesture. We booked the hot tub for the Friday night which was clean and hot all ready for us as promised …. lovely ... its at the back of the building, we took robes flip flops torch a bottle of champagne and plastic wine glasses was funny going round there as you felt like you were in someone's garden but it was really nice its also under cover and had fairy lights on very romantic. If you are going to this area and need somewhere to stay here is perfect. there was just the two of us but there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms so ideal for another couple or children. We went to Ely which is worth a visit and Duxford also worth a visit.

    This cottage was perfect for our requirements which included visiting friends and relatives in the area. The cottage was warm and cosy and there was no need to use the log burner which might have been a novelty if we didn't have one at home. A personal welcome from the owner would have made a big difference as we were unable to discuss the few minor problems we had with the cottage. These were not concerns that needed to be written in the guest book.

    Enjoyed our 3 night stay. We met up with family so was ideal. I think 3 nights is plenty in that locathon. The road is quite busy which detracts from the surroundings however it suited us for the purposes of our reason for being in the area. I wouldn't choose it as my main holiday destination. Ideal for visting Ely and Cambridge.

    It had everything you could need for a self catering holiday. Welcome pack was lovely to receive. Was well placed for our touring needs. Would certainly go back again.
