The East of England comprises the counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Lincolnshire, one of nine official region of England. Not only is the East of England a vital gateway to Northern Europe, it is a beautiful region of coastal towns, broad beaches, unspoilt natural landscapes, rich heritage and a charming, unique character.

The East of England offers a magnificent portion of rural England, which lends itself perfectly to a range of outdoor pursuits. Mountain biking, horse riding and walking, both short strolls after a pub lunch and long full day treks, are hugely popular activities to enjoy from a holiday cottage in the East of England. Despite their popularity, walking cycling and riding holidays never put you amongst the crowds, meaning that the endless peace available can be enjoyed to the full.

East England also offers not only 250 miles of coastal waters, but also huge tracts of inland water, like the Norfolk Broads or Nene Park in Cambridgeshire, meaning that those wishing to experiment or learn any water sport will be in their personal nirvana. Sailing is a huge attraction to the East of England, and there are many holiday cottages and rental accommodation in East England situated perfectly to take full advantage of the sailing facilities. Rowing, canoeing, water skiing, powerboat driving, wind surfing, white water canoe slalom (Bedford), jet skiing and surfing are just a few of the water sports available from self catering accommodation in the East of England, and I have not even mentioned the beaches!

Each of the counties in the East of England is adorned with fine golf courses, so there area plenty of rounds to be had, although tuition, practice ranges and special golf holidays are also easy to organise.

The house looks exactly as on the photos, the majority of bedrooms have their own bathrooms, all rooms are in exquisite shape and very very clean and you definitely feel like spending time inside. The location is perfect, beautiful surroundings and facing the river Cam and the park, in walking distance from the center. The owner was extremely lovely to us, she explained and showed us everything and was always near the phone if we had a question. She even gave us a welcome gift, such a nice gesture! We were so pleased with the stay that we already booked it again for the next year! We are a big group of 40 people making annual trips to the Cambridge and we can only speak highly about the Villa. Looking forward to be there again next year!

Clean and well maintained, with tea bags, coffee and milk provided on arrival it seemed that everything had been thought of to make our stay as stress free as possible; even a stair gate for our toddler grandson. Hilary was so helpful and gave us lots of information about the facilities as one of our daughters is disabled (the cottage is not suitable for those who cannot climb stairs however). We enjoyed the Coast Inn one evening which is close by, and had a lovely meal. They were great with the children too (2 year old and 4 month old). Would love to go back again one day and stay a bit longer. Highly recommended.

Until this holiday I had never seen a kingfisher but they were there to see every day! The cottage itself had everything we needed and was exactly as described. We will certainly return!
