“A lovely cottage”

The Old Chapel is a lovely cottage equipped with everything you need for your holiday. Denis and Ruth are very accommodating and helpful. The cottage is beautiful and in gorgeous gardens and only a stone's throw from Cambridge. Fulbourn itself has everything you need: shops, post office, pubs and is a thriving village centre and walking distance from the cottage. We wouldn't hesitate to book again.

My family and I stayed at the old chapel this time last year. We could not fault a single thing! Today, I've been sitting down going through the photos from our holiday and reminiscing on how fantastic our stay was. Thank you Denis and Ruth for providing us with such a beautiful place to call home, while we were so far away from our own!

Such a warm welcome from Denis and Ruth. The location is idyllic and the house has everything you could possibly need. I wish we could have stayed longer. If we go back to Cambridge we would definitely book again. Thank you so much.

“Gorgeous garden setting”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

A lovely spot close enough to Cambridge but out of the bustle. The garden is wonderful - a fantastic veggie plot, a chook house with a few residents that pop by for the rolled oats the owners supply. The layout of the cottage is good, with a large main bedroom and a tiny second room with a small single bed. Beds are comfortable, and the place is warm. The bathroom could do with a bit of a refresh - a new coat of paint and a proper shower would be good. Similarly in the kitchen, new matching crockery wouldn't go astray - much of the old items there are chipped and mismatched, as are the wine glasses. The crockery was dirty from the previous visitors.

“Great little place, would stay again.”

Cracking wee cottage. My wife, 7 month old daughter and I stayed for 3 nights. Exploring Cambridge using the Park and Ride that is a mile away is a breeze. We were staying to be there for a wedding, just made it in to a mini break as well.
Huge lovely garden to lounge in as well, with plenty of room for a wee one to wear themselves out.
My only criticism of the cottage is that it would benefit immensely from a walk in shower, rather than just a bath.

This property is ideal for a small family and has everything you will need during your stay. It is well connected to Cambridge by bus - there is a bus stop just across the road and buses to Cambridge run every 30 minutes.
We recommend this property to those who wish to visit Cambridge and areas nearby.
