My husband and I have become true fans of the Cambridge Folk Festival but have not really embraced the camping element of the festivities. We have therefore experimented over the years and stayed in a number of hotels but it seems we have finally found the perfect base. This B&B is beautifully situated in the centre of a quiet area...

Had just come off a long haul flight and was very grateful for how peaceful and welcoming Duke House felt. Loved the big bathroom in my room (The York) and after a much needed shower, was so happy to find superb early grey tea bags and a little slice of (delicious!) home-made cake waiting for me at the foot of...

A fabulous five star boutique B&B in central Cambridge just 3 mins walk to the Grand Arcade in a quiet street. The building was once owned by Prince Richard, the Duke of Gloucester (the Queen's cousin), and some friends, whilst they studied at Cambridge university. Hence the name! Extended by the Prince when he studied architecture it now makes a... More

Interesting people from all over the world come to Cambridge, and at the Duke House you will meet some of them. Over delicious English breakfasts featuring local products, friendly conversations with other guests are common. Beds, bedrooms and baths are charming and comfortable, and the B & B is easy walking distance to everything in central Cambridge.Owner Liz is low-key... More

What a great place to stay. The breakfasts are incredible with locally sourced produce. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. The host Liz is friendly and helpful. The location is close to everything easy to get to the shops and local attractions. 10/10

We spent 2 nights at this jewel of a B&B, it was absolutely perfect, Liz was charming and even checked us in early. The room was charming with incredible attention to every detail even better than it looked in the photos. The extra attention included a fridge in the hall way with chilled water and wine, fresh milk every day... More

From the moment we stepped through the door we knew that we had found a little gem in the centre of Cambridge. This B and BB (bed and birthday breakfast) was everything we needed plus so much more.... Thoughtful touches, those little somethings that make you feel very pampered were in every corner. We loved the packets of slippers by... More

Duke House was our last stop on a two week tour of the UK and we could not have been happier. We arrived a bit early but Liz greeted us graciously and our room happened to be ready. We found a parking spot with the permit provided by Liz and were able to settle into the Kent room for a... More

Great B & B in a perfect location for Cambridge. We had dinner at Midsummer House one night & Duke House is a pleasant 10 min stroll away & five mins walk from the centre of Cambridge. We stayed in the Wellington room which was very clean, comfortable & quiet. Liz gives you keys to the house which enables you... More
