“COSY RETREAT AT THE END OF THE DAY!”

Delightful cottage very private and set in a beautiful garden. The village centre a 5 minute walk away has a variety of good food shops and a lovely old church which is well worth visiting. We took the bus to Cambridge each day which took about 30-40 minutes but was more relaxing than driving and they run every 15 minutes. St. Michael's church in the centre of Cambridge makes excellent lunches at reasonable prices and there's a gravestone in the gents loo (i've been told)!
Great holiday!

“really nice and convenient”

Well equipped clean & cosy little house with living room & kitchen at ground floor and 2 bedrooms & a bathroom upstairs. Surrounded by a lovely garden....a peaceful place for a rest after a day of visits & walks. Convenient to reach Cambridge (there is a bus line at a small walking distance to reach the city center and back - Cambridge car parks are expensive) and to visit the surroundings like national trust places when you have a car. Nice welcome with a bouquet of lavender & numerous documentation on what to do. Highly recommended.

“Beautiful historical cottage in Fulbourn”
Reviewed 11 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

The cottage was as pretty as the picture with the purple lavender lining the stone path to the entrance. There is a cosy living room with a TV and music system that opens up to a fully fitted kitchen with coffee and tea available. The small round dining table opens up to a large orchard garden where a residential cat guard every morning and evening. I loved the small details inside the cottage told you about the historical Calvinist connection with the building and the calendar describing the farming features of the month. The owner has collected a wide selection of tourist brochures for those lost with not knowing what to do in the area. I found the OS maps very useful, but unfortunately I found some of the public footpath overgrown in the fens this summer- thank god I was wearing long trousers. I recommend going to the local butcher in Fulbourn they have ready seasoned Hunter Chicken and flavoured pork and lamb. There is a co-op for small provisions or you can drive to the larger Tesco further out of the village. There's a bus to and fro Cambridge if you find car parking in Cambridge a nightmare. The cottage is great for a couple or a family with a single child or two children with one in a cot as the second bedroom is a small single bedroom.

Good location , near to Cambridge . Leafy village with a few nice pubs and walks.
Can't fault the accommodation . Everything you need to cook for yourself .
Dennis and Ruth and family were very accommodating.
Would stay again

“Lovely relaxing house and fabulous gardens in a very fine village.”

The house was exactly as described on the web and in other reviews. Dennis and Ruth were very friendly, accommodating and efficient hosts who communicated everything promptly and clearly. The house was beautifully light, clean and comfortable. Everything worked efficiently including an excellent WiFi connection. Our daughter and boyfriend also stayed with us over the first weekend and the house accommodated 4 adults perfectly well. The garden is beautiful and there is an outside table and chairs for 4. Sadly we could make only minimal use of this on account of my wife's hay fever. I used one of the 2 bicycles provided and went for a lovely ride to the Orchard in Grantchester - a real bonus. Although there is a bus stop outside and quite regular buses you should be aware that this takes over 40 minutes each way to get to Cambridge. We drove to Cambridge regularly and were able to find cost effective parking quite easily. Do not neglect to explore Fulborn itself. Very good local shopping in the village -and a short drive will take you to a Tesco superstore. We did lots of cooking in the very well equipped kitchen most evenings. An excellent stay. We certainly intend to return.
