Very Happy

  • 5 of 5

Very nice little cottage, warm and cozy with much character, owners made sure we were welcome and even included a generous welcome pack; without doubt we expect to stay there again but for longer next time.

Cosy cottage, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples staying for a weekend break visiting friends nearby. Perfect pad to hang out. Easy distance from Wimpole Hall National Trust and Cambridge.

Local take away leaflets available and delivered for free.

Plenty of hot water, heating flexible to meet our preference.

Exactly what we needed. Many thanks.

Pretty little character cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little cottage, nice homely touches. Friendly welcome from Aiden, Louise and Bailey the dog. Sweet little cottage garden at the back of the cottage, plus use of a shady seating area underneath the Apple tree. Bailey shared his huge paddock with our Daisy dog who enjoyed her stay at Dollydrops cottage too.

perfect for a relaxing weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Very cool little cottage, very homely with some sweet little touches from the hosts. Only stayed one night but will definitely be coming back for a long weekend to escape the city. Best night sleep in a long time, so peaceful.
