Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in February 2018

We very much enjoyed our stay at The White Barn. This was our first visit to Cambridgeshire. In Hilton, The White Barn is very well positioned for visiting the surrounding area. St.Ives, Ely and Cambridge are easily accessible. The park and ride from St.Ives to Cambridge uses a busway, one of the very few in the country, thus avoiding all...

Management response:

Thanks so much for such a great review! We're really glad you took advantage of the busway. It does work really well and runs frequently. It's only 6 minutes drive to the busway at St Ives and they have a huge car park there. It means you can spend as long as you like in Cambridge. Other places to go...

Thanks very much, we're really glad you had such a relaxing weekend. Village pub is just down the road - very handy for the Barn!

Located near to town if you drive, on a bus route (I think) if you don't. White barn was fine for a short weekend break.

Management response:

Thanks very much for your review. We are on a bus route (stops near the Barn), and you can get in to Cambridge and St Ives by bus, or take a taxi to St Ives to get the Guided Busway for a much more regular service into Cambridge. By car, we are only 15 - 20 minutes to Cambridge, St...
