I stayed here for 5 nights whilst attending a course at the Holmewood hall conference centre. I'm very glad I did my b&b research, as other delegates were not happy with their choice of accommodation !! beautiful countryside location with stunning views. Eileen looked after me, and spoiled me rotten with the full monty English breakfast in the conservatory every... More

The guest house is beautiful. Great surroundings and Wistow is very near. I was travelling alone and made to feel very very welcome. Room was great and the guesthouse is spotless. Breakfast was also fantastic!

Aaron, Thank you for your kind comments. We both travel quite a lot and often stay in small places around Europe, so here we try to provide what we would wish for ourselves. It is fantastic when we get it right! We are in the heart of the countryside yet still handy for just about everywhere, so actually the location... More

This guest house is run by an older couple who turned this farm house into a nice and charming guest house. They are friendly and helpful and we felt very welcome at this place. The family room was sizeable; it consisted of two linked rooms, both with large double beds that were very comfortable. Breakfast was good as well. The... More

Thank you for your very kind words. Our passion is our home and small holding and it is wonderful when guests appreciate the effort we make. Looking after a very large house and 15 acres of land takes quite a lot of doing, which is not bad for an older couple? We would love to see you and your family... More

Our stay at Pointers has been excellent. The rooms are a credit to David and Eileen; clean and well presented. Breakfast can only be classed as brilliant, very nicely presented. The area is outstanding and David is first rate for information about the area. We used the park and ride guided bus to reach Cambridge, which was a very good... More

It was almost like staying with family relatives. Staying in a welcoming home with everything provided. Bathroom (private but separate from room) equipped with large bottles of hand lotion, body lotion, shampoo and conditioner, lovely white towels, make up mirror, cotton wall balls, other little toiletries. We stayed in what I presume was the 'Poppy room' which is a family... More

Pointers Guest House offers complete rest and comfort in a rural setting. The twin room we had overlooked the beautiful, well-kept garden and was very spacious, clean and well-equipped. We had a warm welcome by the owner. Everything was to our satisfaction during our 2 nights' stay: a very tasty breakfast with fresh fruit from the orchard, an owner who... More

Kristien, Thank you for your kind words. We do not regard ourselves as just providing a bed for the night - rather an experience that includes tranquility, comfort and space with a little touch of luxury in which to enjoy it. Best wishes, Eileen. More

What a delightful place. We stayed overnight and couldn't fault it. Beautiful setting, quiet, lovely gardens, gorgeous room and outlook, clean, comfortable, friendly, and breakfast was superb, on a bright sunny morning with the doors open so you hear and see the wildlife. Will definitely visit again when we are in the area again, usually about once a year.

It is a bit of a joke in Cambridgeshire as the landscape is quite flat, but we do actually live right on top of a hill - all of 240 feet above sea level! The result is a fantastic view in every direction from our farm house and, on the right evenings, the most amazing sunsets you could ever wish... More

On entering from the main road, you are immediately taken by the well manicured sweeping driveway which opens onto a secluded gravel courtyard. I like to hear gravel under the tyres at any hotel or B&B, it always fills me with anticipation as to what awaits inside, we weren't disappointed. David greeted us in the hallway, which was larger than... More

My husband & I stayed at Pointers for 1 night. Our room was beautiful with lovely view over the garden. Would definitely stay again if in the area. The breakfast was good & many choices. Recommended especially for those who enjoy birds & wildlife

Thank you so much for your very kind words. We both work very hard to welcome guests into our home and appreciate it when our efforts are recognised.

One of the best guest houses I have ever stayed in and we have stayed in quite a few. A touch isolated but it is that which helps this guest house stand out.
