Very well placed to visit places in Cambridgeshire. The White Barn was, as usual, very clean, warm and cosy. Everything one could need was supplied. I would thoroughly recomment The White Barn.

Thanks very much for a great review! You were quite right about the garden - it has now benefitted from a tidy up. The garden patio will be being relaid shortly and so it should be looking pretty good by then!

Thank you so much for your review. Very glad the parking was so easy - we have just had the old gravel drive replaced with a proper drive, so there is plenty of room and it is easy to manoeuvre and drive on and off.

Cosy little barn with everything you need for a mini break. The owners were helpful and welcoming but separate enough that we still had our privacy.
