Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England
Our smart, new apartment in an annex of a rural farmhouse is in a very beautiful location but with easy access to Cambridge, Suffolk and Essex. Good local pubs and restaurants.
We are very close to the Tour de France route 2014

We are close to Stanstead and trains to London ( an hour's trip) run from several local stations. Ideal for shows etc
Ideal for those wishing for a quiet stay with beautiful views over three counties. There are many lovely local towns and villages to explore and local good food and drink to sample. Trips to London and Cambridge are recommended.

Birdwatching is good and it is lovely walking,riding and cycling country as we have direct access onto a large network of foot and bridlepaths

Excellent accommodation. Great location. We used this as our base for exploring the Essex, Suffolk area. We visited Ely cathedral, Peterborough Cathedral, the sights of Cambridge, Grantchester, Bury St Edmunds, Southwold and all the delightful villages nearby. It is a well equiped, clean, private retreat to come home too. Jess and Martin are great hosts. We stayed 13 nights in...

Additional amenities & feature info
This is a country retreat. There is a beautiful private, fenced garden ( birdtable and pond ) with access straight onto footpaths- no roads. The conservatory has lovely views of garden and open country. It is snug and has every facility. There is a fully fitted kitchen, comfy lounge with TV/dvd and double sofa bed, and a bedroom with fitted wardrobes etc Fluffy towels on heated rail in the luxury shower room, and sparkling white linen is the norm. We are helpful hosts who welcome you with homemade baking and can help you plan trips and find your way around. The nearby Suffolk and Essex villages are often underrated and Clare, Long Melford and Finchingfield, to name but a few, should not be missed. Of course you can take in Cambridge and London too.
