Excellent half day from Cambridge, an hour's walk each way. Or be brave and punt up and down but allow a couple of hours unless you are experienced!
We visited on a beautiful early spring day and it was most pleasant to sit out in the garden to enjoy our tea and scone.
The location and the setting are what make it such a good spot. However, this makes them somewhat complacent: prices are not cheap, they could do with some proper coffee and the tea pots are stingy. Hence not 5 stars.
