This hidden gem is best kept hidden. We don't want too many people knowing about. Fenstanton wasn't an attractive town as I arrived in the dark. The Blue Cow owner (lovely lady) met me at the door and escorted me to a separate bungalow/chalet type property at the back of her house. There was plenty of space to park the... More

A perfect break. Great place it's more like having your own detached little cottage than staying in a B&B. Have been here before and will certainly come again. A wonderful hideaway. Your own lounge with free WiFi tv dvd etc separate well equipped kitchen diner, good sized shower and large bedroom with a really comfortable bed. Couldn't fault it.

Well done, this is perfect and just what I needed. I had been contacted in advance with directions, asked about any requirements for breakfast ( pick the pancakes and bacon) I was informed they not be there to meet me which was fine. I arrived to discover a perfect venue, walked into a nice warm kitchen, the lounge is great... More

Stayed here when we went to a wedding in Cambridge. The owners were very accommodating and despite having a booking the previous night went out of their way to let us in early so we could change after our journey before going to the wedding. The Blue Cow is a cottage in a former stable and is beautifully and tastefully... More

Stayed here for the second time over the July 4th weekend and it was a perfectly chilled break, like being at home without the stress. Located just north of Cambridge it is great for exploring the fenlands and surrounding area, would recommend this little gem to anyone as a wonderfull stress buster.

If you ever happen to need a place to stay in the area, this is it! Beautiful, comfortable, very kind lady owner...well almost perfect and it's a little cosy flat not just a bedroom! I might even decide to go there just to stay again in the place

This is a great B&B with a difference. Essentially a self contained one bedroom cottage tucked away quietly in the charming rear garden of a home. Huge breakfast with good options supplied for you to cook yourself.........but leave the dishes and (as quoted by our lovely host)' the pixies will miraculously appear and do the dishes. Roomy, well presented and... More

I went to Cambridge on business and stayed at this gem guest house! Mila was very welcoming and accommodating. The area was quiet and the accommodation was very comfortable! The King William IV pub was a 5 minute walk with good food, friendly staff and real ale! Mila provided quality ingredients for breakfast, too, which completed the "home away from... More

I was on business and my wife decided to come too. We brought two cars to this very special 5 star one bedroom venue - in effect small cottage - in the beautiful garden of a house. We parked our cars in the courtyard surrounded by flowering plants and enjoyed a bottle of champagne for Mother day. What a special... More
