“Very hospitable and interesting hosts providing very comfortable accomodation in a very interesting home”
Reviewed June 21, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I spent two nights - booked at quite short notice - was warmly welcomed - simple, wholesome breakfast - met interesting people - extremely well placed in the centre of Ely and with parking.

As a South African I appreciated the warmth provided by the central heating - very necessary given the inclement weather that prevails in an English summer.

“the grown garden invited to stay for reading or quiet conversation.”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spent a marvelous week at this beautiful country style house.
Location is unsurpassable in the very center of Ely, close to the Cathedral, Cromwell's house, High Street, etc., and with very convenient parking, but still very quiet.
We enjoyed the horse & country house themed decoration and the endless book collection.
Stairs were not a problem for our 85 grandmother and beds were very cozy and comfortable.
The shower, as mentioned in the site web page, does not have too much pressure but this was a minor issue for us.
In the exterior, the grown garden invited to stay for reading or quiet conversation.
Jenny and Robin were the perfect hosts: nice, discreet and always available.
All in all a charming memory for us and the hope to be able to return some day.

“Quintessential English charm throughout”
Reviewed May 20, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The Coach House is perfect for a stay in Cambridgeshire. Ely is a wonderful small city, teeming with activity and has the most magnificent cathedral and it is an easy drive to Cambridge and many other interesting sites. Our hosts were wonderful - helpful in every way, very warm and welcoming. There is a lovely side garden for the guests to enjoy - which we did!
The house, while not large, was perfect for 4 of us and a other guest for a couple of nights.
I wish I could have stayed longer. Jenny and Robyn made it a wonderful visit!

“Quaint comfort at The Coach House”
Reviewed March 8, 2015 for a stay in March 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We booked direct with the owners, a simple process which worked smoothly and we stayed with friends for a two night break.

The Coach House is perfect for a short break. It has three ensuite bedrooms, living area and farmhouse kitchen. All are well equipped especially with books and the owners have a large collection coaching and farm memorabilia.

There is parking for two cars off the road at the front of the main building and a small garden adjacent to the kitchen. The space is very quiet and private and very close to the cathedral and the town centre.

One quirk was that in two of the ensuite bathrooms, the showers did not have an overhead attachment to hold the shower head, so showers taken while holding the attachment. They also have half sized baths.

In terms of quality, the bed linen and towels were of high quality.

We spent £300 for two nights for four people, which we felt was good value.

The owners were welcoming and are close by if you need assistance.
