A charming old coach house, offering characterful, comfortable and well-maintained accommodation for 1-2 guests. In a peaceful, sunny position, yet within easy access of Cambridge centre (5 miles) and London, by rail.
This is the original coach house which has been thoughtfully converted. It is located to the rear of the garden in a quiet, peaceful and sunny corner. In November 2016, we upgraded the downstairs seating and redecorated throughout to ensure that our guests continue to enjoy the high standard they have come to expect.

Born and brought up in Essex, I have worked in the IT industry for many years. I lived in Sydney, Australia for 5 years in the 80's, and loved it! I recently took a year out to visit again and travelled back via South East Asia, Mongolia, Russia and Europe - the trip of a lifetime. I have always enjoyed sport and still play some golf and tennis - time permitting. I love gardening as well.
