“A lovely accommodation with a hard to beat central location”
Reviewed 28 October 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My husband and I stayed in this cottage for 3 months with our 3 kids. We all grew to really love it. Despite its small (by Australian standards) size, we never felt cramped. It is well laid out and all the spaces are very functional. Besides, it's got a lovely character. And the best thing about it is the location - it's hard to get more central than that and it's absolutely perfect to experience Cambridge.
Trevor, the owner, was fantastic and went to great lengths to make us comfortable and provide everything that we needed. A special bonus was the very friendly neighbours who became our good friends during the stay.
I don't have any reservation in recommending this property.

“Essence of Cambridge”
Reviewed 17 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Stayed two weeks in this perfectly situated cottage in the heart of medieval Cambridge. Minutes to Cams punt rides, all of the colleges, and many fine restaurants and pubs. Especially recommend visit to next door Kettle's Yard house museum and Sunday roast at John's Chop House. The cottage itself adorable and the beds very comfortable. Owner is very accommodating and provided much appreciated bike. Couldn't dream of a more perfect venue from which to explore beautiful storied Cambridge and environs.

This is a great house, full of character and right in the heart of Cambridge; just 5 minutes walk from the city centre, 3 minutes walk from Magdalene College, 1 minutes walk to two old pubs. Comfortable and quiet, well fitted out, lovely little kitchen.

“Great owner and a great value”
Reviewed 11 November 2012 for a stay in August 2012

A simple cottage with a great location for a really good price = great value. I stayed with my wife and kids for two weeks. The cottage has everything you need, and while it is small, it never felt like it. There are more upscale short-term lets out there but few have such a great location and they cost hundreds more. The owner, Trevor, is very helpful and genuine. If we come again for a longer stay, accommodation will be an easy choice. Really young kids and anyone with mobility issues may struggle with the stairs.
