    Despite the wettest possible weather, we enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was clean and well equipped. The garden was lovely and we would have enjoyed spending time there.

    Can't fault anything about our stay, apart from some noise from a nearby property late one evening which can't be blamed on the property itself. My elderly dad found the downstairs bedroom and bathroom very pleasant and convenient, in fact that was the main reason for this booking as he couldn't manage stairs very easily, and he loved the rest of the cottage and its garden and setting. All was comfortable and very clean; the kitchen and utility room were very well equipped. Very easy to get into the lovely city of Ely from here, usually taking less than 10 minutes. The A10 for other routes was only 5 minutes away. Good Thai food from the Plough at the end of our road and a nice meal at the Anchor at the other end of the village. A local store in the village for papers and essential groceries and the local people we met were all very pleasant and helpful. Thank you to the owners and cleaning staff for their work in maintaining such a high standard.

    We only stayed here for a couple of nights for a family wedding. The cottage was beautiful and perfect for 2 families sharing.

    Lovely quirky cottage! Very clean with good quality bedding and towels. We also appreciated the kitchen linen and logs for the stove. Secure garden for the children and dogs. Plenty of indoor and outdoor toys and games for the children. Pretty village with country walks on the doorstop. Ely only 10 mins drive away, great for groceries, play park and river. Would recommend a river cruise, which was enjoyed by adults and children alike!

    I've rented the house for me and my colleagues from work. The house was absolutely amazing, we all loved it!

    We had a fabulous time - the bed was comfortable and shower was wonderful. The house is peaceful and quiet, once the gates are closed the world is safely closed away! A few items are getting a bit worn, mainly in the kitchen - but as they were good quality when new it was manageable. Woodburner is lovely and the settees are big and inviting. The village is charming, we really enjoyed the nature reserve. Ely is very close, Babylon gallery was hosting an excellent artist, and the walks along the river beautiful. Hoping to return later in the year!

    Loved the cottage, everything we could want from it. Visited Ely and St. Ives. Thoroughly recommend Arbuckles restaurant on the nearby leisure complex.

    A cosy cottage close to Ely with wonderful local walks. The welcoming wood fired stove and comfortable sitting room were a high point along with the downstairs bedroom and bathroom for an elderly relative. The showers were excellent and the cottage was spotlessly clean. The owners are close by and were very quick to respond to our queries.

    A great place to stay especially if you enjoy walking as all footpaths are well sign-posted and easy to follow. Good pubs for eating and\or drinking and friendly staff. There is a good level 4 mile walk into Ely although crossing the A10 can be a problem. The Old Bakery is a comfortable place to stay with a private garden. It has a lived in feel which is not always there with rented properties and we felt at home immediately. It was ideal for a family gathering and we would certainly consider staying again.
