The former school house hugs the bend of a river, its French windows opening to delightful rambling gardens with scented roses... and a yew garden, and a mulberry tree that provides fruit for breakfast. It's an elegant home reminiscent of another age, with fascinating history on the walls and big comfortable bedrooms for guests; one is reached by narrow stairs and has steps out to the garden. The conservatory, draped with a huge mimosa, is an exceptional spot for summer breakfasts, and the breakfasts are rather delicious. Good value and peaceful, yet close to Cambridge, of which Judith is a fund of knowledge.

"Thank you Judith for a lovely stay. What a beautiful home in a lovely village. Sorry we didn't see you before we left. Hope the summer keeps coming for a while."

"What a truly delightful B&B! Elegant and charming, it provided exactly the right springboard for my nostalgic visit to Cambridge. Judy has left nothing to chance and was a sweet and informative host as well as being a wonderful cook! And the unspoilt village of Linton is perfect; dinner in the garden of the Dog and Duck rounded off with Morris Dancers capped a memorable stay - indeed the 'Best of British'!"

"This was the most perfect B&B that we visited during a week's trip to the UK. Our room was spacious with a lovely view on to the garden. Judy was friendly and helpful. Tea and cake on arrival. Lovely little village and good food in the local pub. Great value for money."

"Judy was extremely helpful for us while settling in to England, coming from the US. She went out of her way to be kind to our children, making them Play-Doh, giving them special toys, reading them stories, etc. The accommodation was beautiful, and her garden will be one of the best one’s you’ve ever seen. We also fell in love with the village of Linton, with everything we needed a short walk away, including the cutest little baby ducks you’ve ever seen. There was easy bus access to Cambridge. We couldn’t recommend Judy and Springfield House any more highly."
