This is our 2nd stay with Debbie and David We had a 3 night stay and and they made us very welcome. We had a lovely room , which was self contained with en-suite facilities. and all very comfortable . It was nice to have the daily chocolate, and port. Debbie cooked us a very nice breakfast every morning. They also helped with maps and places to visit. Will definitely book again when visiting the area.

Chequer Cottage is a 1st class B and B with the friendlist of hosts Debbie and David. Located in a quiet rural location good for walks that provide lovely views of the surrounding countryside, a ten minute walk offers a half hourly bus service to Cambridge and Haverhill. If using the car Cambridge, Newmarket, Duxford and the surrounding area are within easy reach. If looking for a peaceful rural break with nice hosts, a lovely room, splendid breakest and extras that make it special you will find it here. We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay at Chequer Cottage which we highly recommend thank you Debbie and David.

Beautiful quiet location. Warm friendly welcome. Immaculate room with little special touches. Hosts were extremely helpful and our stay was perfect. This is a fantastic location for venturing into Cambridge. We used park and ride. We also walked to the local pub and enjoyed a lovely evening meal. Our breakfast was served in the main house and was fabulous. Highly recommend this gorgeous little B&B . Thank you so much.

AMAZING FIND! We stayed here due to going to a friends wedding nearby and was astounded by the styling of the room, attention to detail and customer service! The owners were kind e ought to leave some cake in the room which tasted delicious and were very accommodating and helpful. We will definitely be going back to stay for a few days long as a mini staycation and would definitely recommend

What a wonderful find. It is so nice to write a review and put nothing but positive comments. It is no coincidence as David and Debbie clearly work very hard to make sure your stay is faultless. My wife and I really appreciated their attention to detail. All the usual things you would expect were in place, eg comfortable bed, spotless cleanliness, super breakfast, great location etc, etc. However, the little touches set this place apart from the competition, eg small carafe of port, extensive list of local pubs/restaurants, offer a fresh milk rather than UHT packets, exquisite biscuits.
