An inviting bolt hole in the grounds of a Victorian granary. Your sitting/dining space is airy with soaring beams, restful colours and a fresh contemporary feel. There’s a sofa, TV and nifty kitchenette and, through white curtains, a cow hide underfoot reminding you of the origins of the building and a king size bed topped with luxurious linen. Jo brings over breakfast: homemade granola, muffins and bread; at the weekends you can order a delicious Aga-cooked spread – lots of choice. Cambridge is an easy drive, and The Cowshed a treat to come back to: sit on the pond’s jetty and watch the moorhens while sipping a glass or two.
