This B & B in a modest building is a gem. The couple who run it take great pride in the improvements and updates to the property that they have made. I had the loft room (no. 7) which is just right for a family (Queen and 2 double beds) It was the best breakfast I have had at a... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lynwood house this weekend. Julie made us feel so comfortable! Our room was a dream- comfortable bed, high quality/luxury details. We could have just stayed indefinitely, it was that comfortable and special. We enjoyed a fresh and home cooked breakfast. Homemade granola that was addictive plus all the niceties you would want for starting... More

Beautifully British, super cosy, perfectly clean, incredibly comfortable (especially the bed). The place was tastefully designed and very well looked after, the breakfast was freshly made and delicious, but what really made this place so special were the little things: soaps and creams were organic and made in Scotland, the selection of teas in the room was carefully selected, the...

My friend & I stayed at Lynwood House recently, & highly recommend it to all. It's a short, pleasant walk into Cambridge centre and an approximate £7 taxi ride from the train station. The decor is tasteful, the breakfast tasty & our room with ensuite was spacious and clean. It's not the cheapest place to stay, but worth a little... More

I am used to staying in four star hotels on business so I am fairly used to luxury. This however was a private trip and I stayed here for two nights from 27th to 29th of November. It fulfilled all my expecations and more and in my opinion was well worth the asking price. Some people here have complained about... More

We stayed here for four nights in early December. Nick and Julie go out of their way to make guests feel welcome and comfortable. Our room (4) faced the back and was quiet, very well appointed with top quality fittings, the en suite bathroom down two steps, with a huge shower. Breakfast was delicious, lots of choice, cooked to order... More

I was there at Lynnwood House in June 2015 for a week and I enjoyed my stay in Cambridge. I could walk back and forth from the city centre and Cam River with ease. Nick and Julie were fantastic and very friendly. They made me feel at home away from home.

we stayed at Lynnwood as a group of 4 female friends visiting Cambridge Winter gardens. We could not have been at a better place both in terms of comfort, position (easy walk from centre and best pub), level of attention to welcome and catering. Great place, great hosts, will definitely return.

Lovely one night stay...would recommend as really quality B&B. Short walk by the river to the main town. Great to start the day with an nespresso coffee in my room before the really good breakfast with lots of choice
