Garden off limit

3.0 on August 27, 2015

The photo of the garden was one of the main reason I booked this place. The idea of enjoying a relaxing hour before setting out in crowded Cambridge, was appealing. It was a disapointment when we were told we could not go init, we could only look at the garden on a rare sunny and hot day, but not actually be in it. Our host were nice enough, even drying some wool shirts on the outside line. I would have enjoyed putiing them there myself.

Innkeeper Response
Dear Suzanne and Bob, Thank you for your review. The photos of the river across the garden from the dining room window are there to show you how close is the river and what a lovely view it is from the breakfast table. I am sorry if you were misled by them. The problem with garden access is that it is only possible through the kitchen, which, for hygiene reasons, we are unable to allow. However, the river bank is less than a minute walk away via the cut-through from Fen Road and we would have gladly lent you folding chairs to take out there. Best wishes David & Renee

Most welcoming B&B

4.4 on April 20, 2013

Our hosts could not have made us more welcome in this spotlessly clean B&B. Nothing was too much trouble and breakfast was fresh and satisfying. Close enough to walk to Cambridge city centre. Lovely view of the river Cam watching the rowers makes for a leisurely and relaxing breakfast experience. Susan and Keith April 2013

Directions to property:

Leave the A14 at the A10 exit, signed Cambridge and Ely. Take the exit towards the City Centre. At the first set of light go straight on and continue straight ahead to the Golden Hind junction where you filter left. Watch out for the speed camera opposite the car showrooms - it is the second most ‘successful’ camera in Cambridge! Turn left at the Golden Hind into Green End Road and proceed across the first miniroundabout. You will see Grumpys Pet shop on the next corner and a Kawasaki showroom on your left. Turn Left. At the next miniroundabout turn left into Water Lane and follow this road to the left into Fen Road. You will pass a closed pub – the Penny Ferry on your right. (There is a campaign to re-open it!). Keep going and in about 500m you will see a white post under the hedge on the right hand side. No 26 is the next entrance on the right – the right hand of a pair of bungalows. Turn in and park in front of the red garage doors – to one side or the other; there is room for two cars.
