We were very happy staying here, Mila is very welcoming and friendly. The cottage is beautiful, cosy, spacious and warm. It's in a great location, got a nice pub just down the road and is just a small drive to Cambridge city centre. It's very private and away from the road. Had a lovely selection for breakfast. We will definitely... More

This is a lovely little cottage in a great location. From here, you can visit Cambridge, Hemmingford Grey, St Ives, and many other charming villages, all within minutes away. It is very private, and is secluded from the main road in town. The clean, modern kitchen comes stocked with your choice of breakfast items -- all you have to do... More

Excellent from top to bottom - very comfortable / spacious accommodation within 15 mins drive of Cambridge. Good wifi, interesting DVD collection, tasty diy breakfast and the owners 'can do' attitude make for a super experience. Can't fault this place.

Stayed on a Saturday night, having had a very active day and was looking for a place to relax with a quiet night and a good sleep - it could not have been more perfect. I felt welcome even before arrival, having received an email with a choice of breakfast beforehand. The cottage was lovely and felt like a home... More

I have traveled all over the world, but I think this has been the best and most relaxing place I've ever stayed. Mila is fantastic and goes out of her way to help you. The cottage is very clean and charming. Milla has a fantastic sense of humor, which is evident by the books she has scattered around the house.... More

We recently stayed at the Blue Cow in Fenstanton which is a self-catering B & B. The choice of breakfasts was amazing and always in our fridge for the next day. The washing up was even taken care of! Very comfortable and well equipped accommodation. We will definitely be back!

This hidden gem is best kept hidden. We don't want too many people knowing about. Fenstanton wasn't an attractive town as I arrived in the dark. The Blue Cow owner (lovely lady) met me at the door and escorted me to a separate bungalow/chalet type property at the back of her house. There was plenty of space to park the... More

A perfect break. Great place it's more like having your own detached little cottage than staying in a B&B. Have been here before and will certainly come again. A wonderful hideaway. Your own lounge with free WiFi tv dvd etc separate well equipped kitchen diner, good sized shower and large bedroom with a really comfortable bed. Couldn't fault it.
