Anne Mary and the pups add to the wonderful charm that is The Old Farmhouse in Cheveley, Cambridgeshire.
The grounds are well kept and offer adventure for children and adults alike.
The gourmet meals prepared by Anne Mary are a tribute to her training as a French Chef.
We so enjoyed our stay and will return!

Room Tip: Choose either room...the beds are superb and the location is very quiet.

Staying in a home that is nearly 500 years old is something that would never happen where I'm from. Anne Mary offers the full B&B experience with two well behaved dogs and was a great host. If you like old architecture and homes with charm I wouldn't pass this up.

Had a lovely stay at The Old Farmhouse, Anne Mary and the dogs were very welcoming. The house is old and has a lot of character, hence the crooked house title. A very large and lovely garden was also available to us. With a very nice breakfast in the morning

If we are back up this way again, we will not hesitate to re-book.

Room Tip: If you are going to the Adnams Newmarket nights, order a return taxi otherwise its a long walk.

My business takes me to Newmarket on a regular basis and Anne Mary offers a very welcoming stay and a great breakfast to set you up for the day. The Old Farmhouse is just a very short drive from Newmarket and you are sure to have very comfortable and quite nights sleep. Dont hesitate to book.

We chose the Old Farmhouse B&B in Cheveley, nr. Newmarket because it was close to the venue for a friend's 60th birthday party, but it far exceeded our expectations. Two old houses knocked together ages ago, the oldest parts dating back to 1545, there isn't a straight line or flat floor in the place, nooks and crannies everywhere and mind your head at all times. A fine helping of old Englishness, finely balanced with the amenities of modern life - good bathrooms, televisions, wifi throughout. Our host, Anne Mary Robinson, was absolutely charming and a fine cook if the splendid breakfasts are anything to go by. We felt completely at home, and a fine sunny weekend allowed us to take advantage of the huge garden. We will definitely return.

Lovely stay at this very atmospheric thatched bed & breakfast. A gracious welcome by owner/host Anne Mary Robinson who showed us to the two cozy rooms under the eaves complete with antiques, books and good artwork. She also invited us to enjoy the lounge with its huge inglenook fireplace and made us a fire there in the evening and we relaxed from our day's activities on comfy sofas with a supply of magazines. As a trained chef, we also ordered dinner one evening and enjoyed her gourmet meal plus the cooked to order breakfasts. There is also an excellent gastro pub within five minutes walk. A great location and stay and dog friendly!
