Located 8 miles west of Cambridge, in the Cambridgeshire village of Bourn, The Bull Pen is a high quality build designed to keep a feel for its history and location. It is a comfortable and peaceful place with open space indoors and outside for friends and families to enjoy. All the rooms look across traditional pasture with mature oak and ash trees, hedgerow and then arable fields beyond. It is ideal for a holiday combining 'time in' the city and 'time-out' of the city! Traveling into Cambridge is easy; there is a Park&Ride bus station just 10 minutes drive away.

For warmer days there are French Doors leading to a patio and garden/picnic area to enjoy the outdoor space (and BBQ).

We will welcome all family members, but for safety reasons, The Bull Pen is more ideal for families with older children (7+) or babes in arms. If your family is unfamiliar with farm safety, please call me to discuss your needs and to check suitability for a safe & enjoyable stay.
