“A Great place to stay”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Having never been to the area before we selected Cheriton House from the reviews on Trip Advisor and what a good choice it was. The hosts were very welcoming and knowledgeable i.e. area, places to eat, bus routes into Cambridge etc. nothing seemed to much trouble, even giving a lift to collect your car next morning if you left it at the pub!! Our room in the garden was very comfortable and there was everything you needed and more. We are planning another visit to Cambridge to see what we missed in this trip and will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Garden room was very quiet and you have your own table and chairs to use outside if you wish.

We had a weekend away last weekend (kids bought us a dinner cruise at a venue near to Houghton so decided to make a weekend of it). Arrived on Friday to be met by wonderfully friendly host. I think that this is one of the most well appointed and equipped B and Bs we have stayed in in this country for a number of years. We took advantage of the great weather by using the garden to quietly read for a few hours after a walk and back to St Ives and a trip to the nearby National Trust working flour mill. Breakfast wonderful, rooms very clean, comfortable, well equipped with plenty of tea, coffee (and kit kats!) in addition to normal biscuits.

The owners were really helpful with suggestions of where to eat and walks to take and even offered to pick us up from the dinner cruise if we wanted to have a glass or two and not take the car! We didn't need to take them up on it but it was a lovely touch.

So obviously as it is just an hour and and bit from London, I think we may very well return and we would heartily recommend.

A fabulous place to stay, my room was very quiet and comfortable with lots of extras that you would not expect in this type of accommodation. The breakfast was superb and the owners exceptionally friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Selected from the reviews on Trip Advisor and yet again we were not disappointed. The location of this B&B is excellent and the accommodation met all our requirements. We stayed in one of the two garden rooms which form an annex to the main house. The room was ideal for access to the garden, outdoor patio area and sun room.

Breakfasts are excellent -served to individual tables with a wide choice and well cooked food.
Where possible all produce is sourced locally. Even the flour for the home made bread comes from the National Trust Water Mill located just a few yards down the road. The home made marmalade is to die for.

Chris and Liz are excellent hosts and do everything possible to make your stay both comfortable and enjoyable. When we visit the area again Cheriton House will, without doubt be our first choice.

Outstanding accommodation tucked back in a small village. Clean, comfortable and spacious room, with beautiful grounds. Liz and Chris very gracious hosts. Good pub/restaurant 10 min. away on foot; walk to Houghton Mill also worthwhile.

Wonderful little B&B - great hosts and a brilliant cooked breakfast. Great location with access to a beautiful meadow with a path through to get to Hemmingford Abbot. If we're back in the area we would go again.

Choosen from random off the internet, but what a gem in the small village of Houghton. Lovely clean, rooms, and the hosts were both charming and friendly. A good night sleep (once the campanologists had retired to the pub!), and a lovely home cooked breakfast. I opted for the Salmon and scrambled eggs and it was delicious.

They only have 5 rooms so make sure you leave room for my next visit

Room Tip: I was in the annex which opens out on to the lovely Garden.
