It’s my second time I stayed in the White Cottages B&B and if I visit Cambridge again I would definitely go there for a third time! There is something special about this place - it is cosy, beautifully decorated, the garden is amazing and just as everything in Cambridge it creates a special atmosphere. The room has the ideal size,... More

Stayed with my girlfriend for an event at the Corn Exchange, Cambridge. Host was lovely, and room was perfect. Great breakfast. Easy walking distance into town. Availability of cheap parking was a major bonus. Would recommend to anyone staying in Cambridge.

Perfect location with walking distance to the town centre and easy access for walks along the river Cam. The accommodation is comfortable and cosy, and despite being on Newmarket Rd we were not disturbed by the traffic. The house is beautifully renovated and filled with beautiful furniture, arts and crafts. Entrance from the courtyard via a spiral staircase creates a... More

Spent one night at white cottages. nice environment, nice breakfast. it's worth to stay with, and you can learn a lot of interesting story about the university from the household, who is a really nice and considerate lady.The location is not too far from city center. You can walk along the river then reach the school area within 20 minutes.

The accommodations are so beautiful and Janet's homemade breakfasts are delicious and so thoughtfully prepared. We will be back in Cambridge next year and have already let Janet know that we'll...
