Cambridge, Cambridgeshire
Bed & Breakfast

Great for comfort, beauty, character and home baking. Borrow vintage bikes to explore Cambridge: Christine knows it inside out


3 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Exemplary! Where: in a lovely, comfortable, refurbed Georgian house 20 minutes’ walk from Cambridge centre. How: with warmth, pleasure, intelligence and local knowledge. Bedrooms have good quality mattresses, bedding and towels. Characterful pieces too – antique brass bed, freestanding bath, oriental rugs on polished floors – with flowers and garden views. The breakfasts are delicious, largely organic and local: fresh fruit salad, kedgeree with smoked Norfolk haddock, home baking (three types of bread; gluten free, no problem). If you’d like to swing a cat book the biggest room; borrow vintage bikes and thoroughly enjoy your break.

At the end of a long day's travel it was very pleasant to find a friendly thoughtful welcome into a delightful house. Room fitout was attractive. Bathroom capacious and spacious tub but unfortunately not a lot of time in our itinerary for a long wallow. Convenient walking distance into Cambridge. Handy pub nearby in the evening for pub pizza and ales. Will stay there again when next in Cambridge.


we promised to return again and we have now done so. The hospitality, ambience and comfort are as excellent as ever.

Perfect friendly B&B in easy walking distance from the City centre with option of bus. Lovely, well- appointed and very comfortable ensuite bedroom. Superb breakfasts. Christine is a wonderful hostess and willingly provides information about what to see and do in Cambridge. A very Special Place. Will definitely return.

My daughter and I loved our stay and Christine could not have been a better host. The rooms were spotless, comfortable, charming and breakfasts quite delicious.

Emma, Malton

Very prompt response to our initial enquiry. Free parking right outside the door. Friendly welcome with tea and cakes. Lovely large, comfortable room with generous bathroom. Lots of local advice about walking routes, eateries etc. Overall a very pleasant stay in an ideal B&B and we would certainly stay again when in Cambridge.


My husband and I choose B&Bs over hotels for the personal touches that put us at home in a new place. Christine is a master of those special touches! From the delicious homemade ginger biscuits and tea in our room to the detailed directions of how to walk into town, from my husband's full English breakfast to my homemade Mueslix and fresh fruit, each detail was perfectly executed. When we mentioned that we might be interested in punting, for example, Christine made a point of calling a specific company she knew through a friend and getting all the details for us. This is what a B&B should be!
