Cambridgeshire cottages and holiday rental homes give you a home a way from home as you explore

The County of Cambridge or Cambridgeshire (Cambs) is in the East of England and borders Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire. It is an area where there has been many archaeological finds from the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages, especially around the location of Isleham. Cambridge University is the second oldest English speaking academic institution in the world.

Places to stay in Cambridgeshire

Cambridgeshire is steeped in heritage so is a favourite with tourists and some popular destinations include the three cities, Cambridge, Ely, Peterborough, as well as Great Staughton, Hilton, March, Spaldwick, Whittlesey and Wisbech. There is so much to see and do in Cambridgeshire with many opportunities for brilliant day trips. The best way to do this is by renting self-catering accommodation and holiday cottages.

Most Cambridgeshire cottages are in the smaller towns and villages like Denton, which is close to Stamford and ideal for visiting Cambridge, Rutland Water, the Burleigh Horse Trials or Wisbech, a prosperous Georgian town often referred to as capital of the fens.

Holiday cottages in Cambridgeshire are far more convenient than hotels and guesthouses where there are set meal times and offer a wide variety of accommodation including converted beamed barns, farm cottages renovated railway carriages, riverside cottages, converted coach houses and seaside cottages along the East of England coastline.

Things to do in Cambridgeshire

The East Anglia coastline in Cambridgeshire is truly fascinating despite there being no cliffs worthy of mention. However there are long stretches of golden beach, extraordinary tidal inlets and bird reserves galore. The Cambridge and Peterborough bird clubs have lectures and year-round outings. St Neots Bird Club has closed but this area has lovely country cottages and is nearby for Huntingdon racecourse, Hinchingbrooke Country Park, Wyboston Lakes and the Swiss Garden.

Cottages in Castle Camps are ideal for visiting Linton Zoo, Mole Hall Wildlife Park and the Imperial War Museum and only fourteen miles from the Cambridge Arts Picture House. There are over thirty museums in Cambridgeshire offering a wide range of collections in different settings. Cambridgeshire County Council runs some, others the University of Cambridge or independent charitable trusts.

Cambridgeshire has it all – countryside, waterways, market towns, the Nene and Oust valleys, the Fens, beautiful gardens, historic houses and sites, arts, crafts and galleries, old fashioned breweries, ancient abbeys, many cultural offerings and the only American Military World War II Cemetery in Britain. The Duxford Air Shows are spectacular events in the spring, summer and autumn and Newmarket races offer world class racing for the summer months.

In reality it was even better. The barn sits inbetween the working arable farm and the owners house. It is built on what was a barn/chicken coop but it is a new build and very contemporary version of a barn. You enter through the front door (at the back) to a hallway with shoe storage, metal spiral staircase and door leading to a double bedroom. This room does have a bathroom which can be used but you have to go through the utility room which is made available to any of the farmers (on paper this sounds intrusive but we never saw any; it didn't invade our privacy). From the hallway there is an amazing open plan kitchen, dining and front room with a wall of windows. Clever blinds ensure you can control the light and privacy. This space is airy and modern and equipped with ceiling fans etc. Off from the living space is a gorgeous bedroom with rainfall shower ensuite. The master bedroom is up the spiral staircase and is just fabulous with a large number of Windows, dressing area and wonderful ensuite. Sally, the owner was there to welcome us and showed us around the property. She is thorough and has very high expectations of the service she delivers and that you have the best stay possible. It is her attention to detail which shines through; blackout blinds throughout, games and books, smart TVs, two beds with electronic controls, condiments and a starter pack, utensils and gadgets for the kitchen to make the stay homely. We have stayed in a number of holiday lets and this was by far the best. Even our 3 kids (4,6&10) were chuffed!

The location was fantastic, with shops, beautiful river walks, playgrounds etc close by. We enjoyed cycling into the city centre (an easy cycle along the river) and to Milton country park. We had the best of both worlds on our doorstep. The house was spotlessly clean on our arrival and was very well equipped. The beds were comfortable and we all slept well all week with all the fresh air and exercise! We would highly recommend this home to couples or families looking for a lovely holiday within easy reach of the city and the countryside.

We really enjoyed the folding doors to the deck/garden area and the well appointed kitchen. Busy road outside, but that's a common feature of much of Cambridge. Parking space and covered bike racks very useful. Nice park close by with public tennis court. Would recommend a stay.
