Had a lovely stay. The owner is very friendly and helpful and the cottage has everything you need with a few little extras. The accommodation is clean and very comfortable. Would definitely stay again if we are in the area.

Lovely place to stay, and the added bonus of an excellent breakfast! You cook it yourself but I loved the flexibility of being able to eat whenever I wanted. The bed is super comfortable and the whole place was very clean. There is a very good pub down the road for food!

What a find. Last minute booking via booking.com. This is a one bedroom mini bungalow. A lovely welcome even though they only had one hour notice of my arrival. The accommodation was spacious, clean and very well funished. Will definitely stay again when next on business in area. Great value.

We came to stay at the Blue Cow a good few years back, and we were lucky enough to manage to bag it for the May Bank Holiday weekend. We went up with our 6 year old son, and had a really nice time. The B&B is a beautiful self-contained cottage, with separate bedroom, kitchen and shower room. Ideal for...

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...

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.

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...

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....
