Beautiful house, well appointed and clean rooms, friendly owners. Within walking distance of two lovely country pubs, serving fine food and real ale. Close proximity to the charming old town of St Ives

The Thorpe guesthouse comes highly recommended by Tripadvisor devotees for good reason. There is no guesthouse sign so look carefully at house numbers or you may drive past 1st time. you can expect a good welcome and excellent local knowledge. The bed was very comfortable and the shower and toiletries all high quality. The guest lounge is a real Wow!

we went for supper to the now famous local pub "The male chicken" not actually called this but you cannot name the 2013 pub of the year on trip advisor without being accused of fowl language! The food and wine weren't as good as last visit but is still a place for a good atmosphere and meal. My only suggestion is take a torch as little country lanes aren't well lit for your walk back to your comfy bed.

Room Tip: Our room was a double in the house and was excellent

Wow! What a great find this is a modern bright stylish place to stay that is worth way beyond what I paid providing excellent value for money. I stayed in a self contained annex which was warm clean and provided all the mod cons you need. Smart flat screen TV, great shower room and the biggest bed you will find anywhere. The room looked out onto a garden terrace and felt like your own piece of the house. Stunning open plan breakfast room and a great choice for breakfast. Owners were friendly approachable and made me feel most welcome. Located is a lovely leafy area It's got to be one of the best guest houses that I have stayed in. Many thanks to Stewart and Nicky you have a great place to stay . I will most definitely use again

The Thorpe Guesthouse is a lovely place to stay if you were spending a weekend near Cambridge. I was heading to Cambridge for an annual dinner at the Queen's college last weekend, to avoid the busy B&B and hotels in the centre Cambridge, we decided to stay at the Thorpe and this turns out a really pleasant experience. The rooms are clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated. The owner, Stewart and Nickey are lovely people who care about guests' experience at the Thorpe. Good breakfast, excellent location and definitely would stay there again if going that way.

This is an excellent B & B which offers quality bungalow style accommodation with large and comfortable rooms. These are a welcome change from the cramped stairways and confined bedrooms found in too many B & Bs. The proprietors are very pleasant & co-operative & Hemingford Grey is a very pretty village. This makes The Thorpe a great base for visiting Cambridge, Ely, Huntingdon, St Ives, Godmanchester etc.

This is a real find. Classy accommodation - smart modern and spotlessly clean rooms. Very nice owners - friendly, helpful and willing. Good location and very reasonable prices. Good breakfast. To be honest, it is one of the best I have come across. Located in a beautiful village with a great pub/restaurant - The Cock - just 1/4 mile away, it is an ideal place for an overnight stay for business people working in Cambridge or Huntingdon. Undoubtedly, I will use it again. Thoroughly deserves top marks.

Room Tip: All good rooms.
