The Woodlands would have to be one of the friendliest B&Bs we have ever stayed in. Sean, our host, is extremely helpful, chatty and nothing is too much trouble. We are a family of 4 and stayed for just one night in June in the family room - adjoining double/twin rooms with shared bathroom. This is the perfect setup for... More

My friend and I stayed the weekend for Ely Folk Festival. The place has so much character and very clean. Sean is a wonderful cook and very attentive. Really good choice of breakfast and his scrambled eggs with salmon is amazing. We had a lovely stay and hope to return next year.

Although the host is friendly and helpful the accommodation could do with a good overhaul. It looks tired but it is quiet and has all the essentials for an overnight stay. We wouldn't stay a second time.

Sean provides a very warm welcome and looks after you throughout your stay. Nothing is too much trouble. We were only there 5 mins when he turned up with a tray loaded with tea. The Woodlands is off the beaten track set in the Fens. Donkeys, barn owls and a great array of bird life make for a very interesting... More

Been a regular guest for 3 months and with great sadness I had to leave due to relocation of our business, gonna miss Sean and Jane, they were the best hosts I ever had on a B&B. Very clean rooms, lovely views, loved the donkeys and above all just loved the quiet after a busy day at work. Beds were... More

Not normally a fan of B & B but this place can't be faulted. The rooms are like mini chalets, quiet (except for the occasional bray of a donkey by day and hooting owls at night) and spotless - some of the 5 star hotels we have stayed in could learn a lot from Sean and his family! We were... More

Lovely little place tucked away and nice and quiet. This was our second stay, this time we had the family room / s with adjoining facilities, don;t forget to duck on your way in ;-) Check in and you have free range of the gardens and a conservatory type area for coffee and the such like, but my recommendation would...

I love this place! Quiet and so comfortable, Sean and Jane couldn't be nicer! Comfy bed, lashings of hot water, breakfast amazing! This is the second time I've stayed here on my own while visiting friends, and I can't rate it highly enough! Value for money and friendliness abound! Thank you!

To be honest, I didn't really expect too much for the price that I have paid but the service provided was definitely beyond my expectation. The en-suite double bed room was clean and quiet and the surrounding envionment is lovely. The B&B owner Sean is very friendly and his scramble eggs (that was based on a Gordan Romsey's receip according... More

A lovely country setting where peace and tranquility abound. Lovely fresh clean rooms and en suites with toiletries, towels and lashings of hot water. An adjacent large conservatory, overlooking the countryside and extensive wildlife, was ideal for tea and coffee breaks with an attached full kitchen with fridge, cooker and sink enabling food to be prepared and eaten on site....
