    Although the cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped it was right next to the owner’s property. There was no privacy as the windows from each property were facing one another. There were also two rather large dogs who kept barking and ran up to you as soon as you stepped outside. One dog growled and bared its teeth, although, the owner kept saying they would not bite. The location of the cottage was good for exploring the area but our holiday was spoiled by the lack of privacy and the dogs.

    Very clean & well equipped. Met by Lionel, very welcoming but then left alone. Very close to relatives that we were visiting & much better than a hotel room.

    Had a great comfortable stay, cosy and well heated. Good location for many attractions. Park n Ride 10 mins away £3 return to Cambridge, very easy. Local bus stops at the end of the lane but takes 45 mins as goes around the villages. Everything available for self catering with a Morrison's nearby. Pub cheap, typical pub food, family noise etc. Was delighted to see a black squirrel on the woodpile with the greys. Woodland Trust walk next door. Appreciated the welcome tea tray and DVD's. Smoke alarm does not like the toaster ! Dogs next door were no bother at all, did not actually see the owners but sounded nice on the phone and visitors book was complimentary of them! Lovely stay would stay again as lots to do in the surrounding area and several National Trust properties too. Recommended.
