White Cottages Guest Room
Ranked #44 of 123 Cambridge B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 23, 2011

At the end of a fairly long and exhausting business trip I decided to visit Cambridge for a few days. I wanted to stay close to the city, but far enough not to get caught up in the city traffic. White Cottages B&B proved the perfect place! I can’t say enough about the hostess, Janet Parr. She made me feel at home and was extremely knowledgeable of the city’s colorful history. Her fine English breakfast was just what I needed to jump start my day. When it was time to head home I was more relaxed than I’ve been in years. Future trips to Cambridge will include White Cottages as part of the journey.

White Cottages are in fact, as told by its owner Janet Carr, converted from her husband's Betting shops, but don't let this put anyone off, as they have been beautifully renovated and extremely tastefully decorated. Although not in the centre of Cambridge, the accommodation is within a pleasant 20min walk along the river Cam.
Passing the various College boathouses, en route to the centre, one immediately gets a feel for the City.

My wife and I spent three nights at White Cottages in late April [2011] and cannot speak too highly of Janet's welcolme and hospitality. The accommodation is clean, charming and a little bit quirky, with many endearing features. One of which is your own private entrance, via a charming patio garden and up a wrought iron spiral staircase.

The bedroom was bright and spacious, with a Futon style double bed, which was very comfortable. If memory serves me well, robes were also provided.

Breakfast was taken in the main room of the cottage, which is a delightful setting in its own right. Janet cooks breakfast to order and provides an array of fresh produce to tempt any palate.

My final words on White Cottages must be reserved for Janet Carr herself. She is a truly charming and engaging person and exemplifies what staying in a B&B is all about.

White Cottages Guest Room is situated just a 5 minute drive away from the historical city centre of Cambridge; a 15 min short walk beside the boat houses will lead you into the heart of the beautiful city of Cambridge. The cottage is bijou with a separate bathroom for your use ( cottages rarely have an en suite) The comfortable double guest bedroom is also used for single guests. Visitors are often on the run so I no longer do a cooked English breakfast guests often prefer to get out and try all the local places like Aunties Tea rooms I offer a light self service picnic breakfast £5 per person if required which can be taken out or eaten in. The renovated kitchen offers guests the use of a fridge. Drinks can be made in the cottage kitchen at any time. The bedroom is spacious and has a TV and Wi-Fi connection.
