Beautiful area. Lovely bedrooms.

  • 3 of 5

The owners were very friendly and we had a fantastic time. A group of us have been going away for a long weekend for over 30 years. This property was not as good as many we have stayed in. The bedrooms were comfortable and well kitted out. The lounge was fine but was a bit of a squash to seat 8 of us. The biggest drawback was that the kitchen was far too small. We were tripping over each other and we did not have enough room to store our food. When we arrived the first thing we noticed was that there were weeds around the outside area and we were looking at a factory. We would not wish to return here.

Owner's Response: Hi Claire, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review of your stay with us at Whitehouse Cottage. We are glad you had a fantastic time with us. The house is set up with two lounge areas. One in the kitchen where there are a table and chairs for 10 as well as a corner sofa. There is an additional separate lounge area just off the kitchen and dining area. This separate lounge area has two sofas with french doors out to the garden where there are a table and chairs and sun loungers. If all 8 of you were in the smaller lounge area then of cause this would have been a bit of a squeeze. Most of our guests prefer to use the two lounge area's so they can spread out. The kitchen is a standard cottage kitchen with a standard sized oven and hob, with a washing machine, dishwasher, and a large fridge freezer. Both our lounge area, kitchen and dining areas are well documented on HomeAway with photographs. We apologize if there were some weeds as you drove into the courtyard which we have now addressed. As for the factories, these are well screened by hedges and are painted green so they blend into the background. You can only see the back of one of the factories as you drive into the Courtyard. This industrial estate used to be part of the whole estate of The Whitehouse and was influential in the second world war. It produced the landing lights for runways in the world war 2. Malden Harley used the live at the Whitehouse and this is why the industrial estate is named after him. We are sorry you will not be returning to stay with us at Whitehouse Cottage and hope you find a more suitable property for your next long weekend away. Kind regards Fleur and Paul

Great getaway

Second time at the whitehouse cottage - both times with a group of family members. Perfect for a short break, especially the dining and lounge areas. Bedrooms are well set-up with good bathrooms.

Thanks for letting us stay!

Lovely stay at the White House Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend stay at the White House Cottage. The property was clean and well maintained with plenty of room for five adults and two children (having booked the additional bedroom). Fleur was so welcoming and provided excellent customer service when we did have a small issue during our stay. I would recommend the property for family groups looking for somewhere to stay with a comfortable, cottage feel.

Lovely place that suited our group wonderful with huge bedrooms and many bathrooms.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights and were welcomed with a tour around the property by the very lovely bubbly owner. Very adequate for a larger group with large bedrooms and many bathrooms and good parking. Particularly liked the 'welcome pack' (milk, tea, coffee etc) to enable you to have a cuppa to regroup after journeys and plan the stay. The kitchen was a little small, but manageable but would not recommend a three course meal being cooked, but there is the offer of a chef. We went for walks and had meals out and just had a lovely time connecting with friends from around the country.Yes I would recommend this property. It was cosy, warm and comfortable. We never received the address through the Home Away site needing to download their app and register, which we were not prepared to do for a postcode. However contact with the owner was very quick and easy and no problem at all. Thanks again to the owner for letting us stay.

Owner's Response: Hi and many thanks for your review. These mean a lot to us and we are glad you wonderful stay with us. The cottage is a great place for people to re group and lots of our guests have mentioned this before. Being so close to major infrastructure of the A1, A14, M11 and the main line into London helps. Having Cambridge just 20 mins away makes for a great day and evening out. The kitchen has everything you may need with a standard over and hob and the chef we recommend has has produced wonderful results in the kitchen. At all stages of bookings, leading up to your stay and whilst you are here we are always wiling to help and advise. Can I say thank you again for your review and we look forward to seeing you all again in the future. Kind regards Fleur and Paul

Would come back any time

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zu siebt eine Woche lang im Whitehorse Cottage und haben die Geräumigkeit sehr genossen. Es war sehr praktisch, dass so viele Badezimmer zur Verfügung standen, so gab es nie Wartezeiten! Die Vermieterin war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und gab uns gute Tipps für unseren London-Trip, der ganz praktisch nur wenige Minuten vom Haus entfernt am Bahnhof in St Neots begann. Geschirr und Besteck waren ausreichend vorhanden, lediglich eine gute Pfanne fürs Full English Breakfast fehlte.
