“simply excellent - but vehicle is essential”
Reviewed 8 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Absolutely superb, welcoming yet not intrusive owner Claire on hand if needed, everything provided for a short or longer stay, have already rebooked for 2 more breaks next year and would recommend without any reservation at all.

Good food at The Poacher in Elsworth (approx 3 miles away)

Vehicle is essential for this let, only found one shop and a pub that doesn't appear to do evening food in Hilton village itself.

“A great place to stay”
Reviewed 28 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

If there are only two of you and you have a car, then this is an excellent place to stay. The place is immaculate and very warm. We had a three day break in October when the East winds were blowing. Everything seems to be brand new and there is everything that you need for a short break or week's stay. There are local supermarkets and a village shop and pub.The are many places to visit in the surrounding area.

The only reasons I gave it a 4 star is that even though you can get to Cambridge and back by bus during the day it is more difficult at night. It is possible but you need to go to St Ives via a taxi. We did it easily on one day so we wouldn't want to do that more than once. Also there is no WiFI which we didn't mind but some people may.

We would stay here again and have recommended it to our friends already.
