I had a lovely stay at the Pointers whilst I was attending a course nearby. David and Eileen were very helpful with directions etc. The room was lovely, clean and with everything you needed. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

We stayed in Pointers at the end of September; we came to our niece's birthday party, and had booked 2 rooms, for ourselves, and for our son and his girlfriend. What a surprise! It is immaculate, spotlessly clean and very spacious. The breakfast was lovely and served in a sunny conservatory. We were well looked after by the nice owners... More

Thank you for your very kind review. We have met so many great people over the past year that it really makes our efforts worthwhile, so this is perhaps a big 'thank you' to everyone who has joined us a Pointers during 2014. We look forward to seeing you all again soon. Eileen. More

It's a funny one isn't it "the best B and B I've stayed in". That's what a previous review said. I've been to loads of best of this and best ever of that following recommendations and often thought, what are you talking about?

I've stayed at Pointers a few times now. The rooms have always been impeccably clean. They are spacious and well furnished, the power showers are fantastic. The house and gardens are on a quiet road with little traffic which makes for a truly relaxing place to stay. There's a great conservatory overlooking well kept gardens and a few ponds, all... More

First night in England for us, and my daughter said she would like to live here. All the little touches make this a first class experience. We stayed in the family room, which was really two rooms. Very reasonably priced, and breakfast was 5 star. We caught the bus that goes on the old rail tracks from st Ives into... More

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.

Sadly, my daughter and I only planned one night at Pointers as we drove north to Yorkshire; a second night would have allowed me to provide her with her first visit to Cambridge. All the appropriate accolades reference hospitality, accommodation and food have appeared in previous reviews so allow me to bring up a couple of other points. Although the... 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.

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.
