More welcoming and comfortable than any of the standard hotels, and better value too. The rooms have been well furnished and equipped, and our shower room looked as if it had been newly refurbished. Extremely quiet - no traffic noise at all. The breakfast menu includes more than enough variety - even smoked salmon and scrambled egg - and it... More

Have to agree with Tilly1001 regarding hard bed and excessively heavy winter duvet or nothing, as a result we too slept badly. Large shower but shower head needed descaling or replacing. Nowhere to hang clothes in bathroom.Breakfast was ok. Pleasant, quiet location. Easy reach of park and ride for Cambridge. Walking distance to local pub and Thai restaurant. Probably overpriced....

I was looking for somewhere to stay and was annoyed with the over priced hotels in and around Cambridge. This is a fantastic rural location within easy reach of Cambridge (even though I was actually working in Harston). Great value, lovely room and a breakfast to set you up for the day. Loved the linen sheets and comfy bed. Will... More

We were quite happy with our 3 night stay at Beech Farm. The room we were in was quite large and very comfortable, with lovely furnishings and a beautiful bathroom, with a fridge on the landing which came in quite handy. Jonathan and Jackie are very friendly hosts and it was nice to share travelling stories with Jonathon whilst relaxing... More

The room looked great, tastefully decorated, and the en-suite equally good, but things went downhill from there. It was very hot in the room when we got there and we turned the radiator off. Despite this, and it being a very mild September, the house was too hot and we baked during the night, with the option of the most... More

I very rarely have to stay in cambridge and found this place as the B&B I have used once before was full. Harston is a lovely little village just south of cambridge and I have often thought about staying here if I needed to. Beech Farm is down a quiet side street with a nice pub at the top of... More

Just our opinion, the place seemed like it had better days. The room, which was the biggest, needs a major refresh. It doesn't look as nice in person as it does in the photos. There was nothing cheery or pleasant about the whole experience from the hosts to the grounds, the rooms and even the breakfast room. The room was... More

We are genuinely sorry to hear this experience at Beech Farm did not live up to expectations. It was disappointing for us to hear, however, we take on board all comments and respond for the benefit of future guests; 1) We have decorated our home in neutral themes and I admit it may not be to everyones taste, our aim...

This was a nice place to stay with a comfortable room. Breakfast was good and we had a pleasant weekend. We thought that £85 was a little expensive. We did not mention whilst we were there as there was nothing that could be done about it during our stay but the shower pressure was weak.

My wife and I decided to take a short break in order to visit Cambridge, Wimpole Hall and Anglesey Abbey. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have discovered Beech Farm. It's just a short distance from Trumpington Park and Ride and is ideally situated for the places we wanted to see. Also, it's in a quiet and peaceful rural setting... More
