A lovely little place in easy and scenic reach of everything you need for a great break in Cambridge. Walk along the river to the town centre or 15mins quiet walk to the quirkier pubs and restaurants of Mill Road. Host friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable but not "in your face". Accommodation comfy, big bed, decent shower or bath with plenty... More

This has to be the most welcome I've felt at and B&B/hotel. The room was superb; spacious, bright, well-lit and a nice bed. And the bathroom was even better, a stand-alone bath and again, spacious. We timed it at 20 minutes to walk from the hotel to the city centre through nice parks (lit with decorative lighting at night), but... More

We stayed here for the night when visiting Cambridge last week, and were warmly welcomed by Janet into her comfortable and peaceful home. Situated within walking distance from the centre of Cambridge, White Cottages is in the perfect location for quick access to the buzz of the city but without the noise. Both bedroom and bathroom were tastefully decorated, and... More

It’s my second time I stayed in the White Cottages B&B and if I visit Cambridge again I would definitely go there for a third time! There is something special about this place - it is cosy, beautifully decorated, the garden is amazing and just as everything in Cambridge it creates a special atmosphere. The room has the ideal size,... More

If you are a couple who likes a place that offers something a bit different, is tastefully decorated and enjoy being hosted by someone who really knows the local secrets, White cottages is for you. We spent three days in White cottages, with Janet as host and agree with all the other positive TA reviews. We chose it based on... More

Stayed with my girlfriend for an event at the Corn Exchange, Cambridge. Host was lovely, and room was perfect. Great breakfast. Easy walking distance into town. Availability of cheap parking was a major bonus. Would recommend to anyone staying in Cambridge.

Perfect location with walking distance to the town centre and easy access for walks along the river Cam. The accommodation is comfortable and cosy, and despite being on Newmarket Rd we were not disturbed by the traffic. The house is beautifully renovated and filled with beautiful furniture, arts and crafts. Entrance from the courtyard via a spiral staircase creates a... More
