This beautiful little village on the outskirts of Cambridge is delightful for a short diversion. It sits on the River Cam and there are many walking (and swimming!) opportunities and it is blessed with a good selection on very popular pubs serving very good food. There is also a a great tea house set in a lovely orchard (known as... More

The village is quite nice. the main reason to visit would be the Orchard Tea Rooms and the access to beautiful Granchester Meadows from the rear of the tearooms.

We spent a nice afternoon in this village where you can feel like the time was stopped. Really good tea room with proper english tea and cakes and perfect garden for summer time where you can chat with friends and be sure you will lose count of time there.

I'm not a very relaxed person, but I must admit this is one of the better places I have visited for chilling out. The Tea Garden where the Neo-pagans hung out is tranquil beyond belier.

No visit to Cambridge would be complete without a walk along the river to Grantchester Orchard. The walk takes about a hour but is extremely pleasant. The reward is an experience that is quintessentially English and one which notable people like Virginia Wolf, Bertrand Russell, TS Elliott and Wittgenstein enjoyed in their day. Enjoy cream scones and tea, or a... More

Granchester is my favourite village, I grew up around here and visited Granchester often with my grandad. I remember the church clock getting stuck at 2.50. The village has a mill pond which is lovely.

Visited hotel late on a Saturday afternoon after walking thru the very delightful village. We loved the setting and ambience of the hotel but the service left a lot to be desired. Our Order was taken by two people , forgotten, then we were told, without apology, they were busy and had too many things to do. Not our problem.... More
