Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England
The Granary at Chalk Farm, Babraham is a 17th century piggery converted to provide a comfortable home-from-home for the tourist or business visitor, offering complete privacy, excellent self catering facilities and much more space than most hotel rooms.

Situated just 6 miles south of Cambridge, Babraham is a quiet and pretty village ideally placed for exploring the University city and the surrounding rural beauty of Cambridgeshire. There is a good, regular bus service and the bus stop is five minutes walk away. Park & Ride with a bus to the city centre every 10 minutes is just 2 miles down the road.

The Granary is designed for two people (with a double bed), but will accommodate three or four with the futon – but please note that the Granary is studio accommodation, so is one large room, and there is no separate bedroom. We can prov...

The Granary can be found in the lovely village of Babraham which boasts the the hospitality of Granary owners Sarah and Andy, but also the George, a terrific pub two doors away. The Granary is cosy and well equipped with a wonderful welcome pack .. fresh milk, bread, sausages and bacon, eggs, etc. A heartwarming stay. The shower rose arm...

Thanks Kerry - glad you enjoyed your stay! Updating the shower is very much on our minds - it's a question of aligning our lovely plumber's availability with a gap in our bookings! But we are definitely working on it and hopefully next time you come you'll have a pleasant surprise! lots of love Sara and Andy

Lovely dog friendly accommodation. Had all the basics you'd need, with additional home from home comforts, and it's a charming building set in lovely grounds. Owners are so welcoming and accommodating. The Granary was perfect for us as we wanted dog friendly, near to a park-and-ride (only 5 mins up road) and was easy to get to and easy to...

Thanks Kat, we loved having you too!

Additional Rate and Availability Information
We welcome a well-behaved dog for a small extra fee of £10. Please let us know if you will need bedding the futon, for which we also ask an extra £10. The Granary can also be booked for longer periods, and when booking for one or more months a significant discount is available. Please get in touch to arrange this.During the peak summer period (ie. the school holidays) the Granary is popular, so we do not always accept short bookings (2-3 nights) for this period until closer to the time (start of May). Our apologies for any inconvenience this causes.
