“Very relaxing break with great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We stayed here for a couple of days in early May. Debbie and Dawid are fantastic hosts that catered for all our needs.We chose this location as we wanted to explore Cambridge and the surrounding areas. The B&B is ideally located with a short drive into Cambridge. Being in the countryside also gave us the opportunity to get out on our Tandem which Dawid kindly locked away for us overnight. Debbie and Dawid also shared some potential cycle routes with us. We decided on a lovely day out to Anglesey Abbey about a 24 miles cycle away. On our return, Debbie made us a cup of tea and served her delicious cup cakes that we enjoyed in their lovely garden. The breakfasts were delicious too - we even bought some of Debbie's preserves to take home with us.

I can highly recommend Chequer Cottage and we will return next time we are in this area!

I've stayed here twice now and would highly recommend it. The area is beautiful and the room is lovely. Always a friendly welcome from Debbie and David. Breakfast is delicious and served in a stunning dining room too. Overall a very nice and relaxing place to stay.

We have just stayed at Chequer Cottage, Cambridge. What a wonderful 1st class Bed and Breakfast. We received a very personal, friendly service from Debbie and David. The accommodation was very comfortable, bathroom facilities excellent, breakfasts utterly delicious. The garden is a delight to relax in - so very peaceful. We personally award this Bed and Breakfast 5 stars. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

I hadnt read anything about Chequer Cottage, was just lucky enough to have been given the number, after enquiring somewhere near by, that was full up!! We were visiting the nearby Chilford Hall Vineyard for the day, and decided to make a weekend of it!! We were very lucky to arrive in the Hamlet of Streetley End in the only sunshine we have had in weeks!! Wow so many beatiful Thatched cottages all nestling around each other. We were met by Debbie and Dave, and welcomed with a homemade cake, which we thought was a lovely touch!! The room was immaculate, cosy and warm. Details on local restaurants and Taxis was really helpful. Little touches like the champagne glasses, which we made use of, as we had bought a bottle with us, and a small decanter of port which, we didnt make use of but thought was great, all added to the joy of the room!!!! The breakfast in the main house, which is absolutely wonderful,was delicious.Eggs from chickens over the road, homemade jams,sausage patties all added a homely touch!! Even got some marmalade to take home!! So lovely to chat after breakfast, such great hosts, would love to go again!!

I really have nothing to say other than what a perfect place to stay... I arranged it as a surprise night away with my partner and we both loved it! Debbie was the friendliest host and cooked a delicious full-English with everything freshly sourced and made to order. Loved it here and I hope to be back next year!

We had a fantastic week with Debbie and Dave at Chequer Cottage. They couldn't have done any more to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Our room was above the garage and had a comfy bed and modern en-suite. Breakfast was served in the cottage kitchen and really set us up for the day with home picked fruit and eggs from the hens across the road. Debbie is also an excellent cake maker and it was a real treat to come home in the evening and relax in the beautiful cottage garden with a slice of home-made cake and a cup of tea.
Chequer Cottage is certainly to be recommended and there are some lovely pubs nearby for evening meals.
