This beautiful and characterful 17th century property is within easy travelling distance of two airports, as well as Cambridge and London.

It boasts a pretty and tranquil countryside setting, with ample local walks and wildlife to enjoy. Newmarket Race Course, Duxford Air Shows and Knebworth House and Gardens are just a few of the excellent nearby attractions.

The property has many attractive period features, as well as a glorious garden to enjoy.


The cottage was built in the mid 17th Century and until the beginning of the 20th Century was the home of the village blacksmith. It is reputed that Wellington had his horse re-shod there whilst visiting the nearby Julians Park. Before the village school was opened, what is now the kitchen, was used as a dame school where children were taught by the blacksmith's wife.

The property was purchased by Susan's grandfather in 1921 and the gardens landscaped by her father who was a Chelsea Flower Show gold medal winning designer and constructor. The garden is made up of lawns, flower beds and borders, terraced areas suitable for eating and sitting outside, and a lovely feature well. Parking for up to 3 cars is available close to the house in a gated driveway.

The house is well equipped and comfortable for up to 4 people with a choice of two double beds and two single beds, 3 bedrooms in total. The kitchen is equipped with an electric oven and hob, large fridge freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle and a feature stone larder. There is a bathroom upstairs and a shower room downstairs, a hair dryer is supplied. The sitting room has a variety of seating options, an indoor fireplace and TV with DVD player. The property also benefits from Wifi throughout.

A wonderful feature of the cottage is its cosiness in wintertime and the coolness in the summer months.

Akses tetamu

As guests you will have use of the whole property and are invited to enjoy the garden (maintained by your hosts), which extends to about half an acre. You can come and go at your leisure during your stay and the property benefits from off road parking.

Interaksi dengan tetamu

We live in the house situated some way back to the rear of the cottage but the accommodation is sufficiently separate to allow you to enjoy a peaceful, undisturbed time in the country.

We will meet you on arrival and answer any questions you may have, then leave you to enjoy your stay, although of course we will be on hand should you need any assistance.

We loved the cottage, it is a piece of Englishness that can't be experienced by staying in a hotel. It is in charming countryside, and the garden is beautiful. Allow time to explore the area! While bathrooms can be a challenge in English properties, we had no problems here - it was lovely to be able to sink into a bath at the end of the day, and be able to get out again without fear of injury!

Great little country escape. Such a quaint cottage with beautiful gardens. The kitchen was well equipped as we made a breakfast in the morning and the pint of milk left for us for a cup of tea was a lovely touch. Thank you for having us!

The only reason not to say how extraordinarily exquisite Sue and Rob's cottage is would be so we could keep this little gem hidden from the world so it could remain a treasure for the privileged few. But that would just be selfish. Anyone interested in enjoying the delights of the English countryside - the peace, the quiet, the solitude - in the comfort of a glorious 17th century cottage and immaculate gardens, should look no further than this idyllic cottage. Owners Sue and Rob are salt of the earth hosts who have a genuine interest in their guests and go over and above to help with anything you need. Close to Cambridge, Warmer Bros (Harry Potter World) and beautiful villages, and right in the middle of the country, this is an experience you won't want to miss. Local shops a short drive away while the Moon and Stars pub does a killer Sunday roast lunch. We didn't want to leave. Peta

The house is truly lovely and Rob and Sue were the perfect hosts, going above and beyond to accommodate. The garden is very pretty and private and there's a great pub a few doors down, along with charming tea rooms in the garden centre just a 5 minute walk away - both definitely worth a visit The perfect place for a weekend away!

The house was spectacular! The windows sparkled and the blend of historic and modern comfort was perfect. There is a big parking area as well as seating in the garden. Wish we had more than 2 days there. This house is well equipped for lengthy stays as well. Sue and Robert kept in touch prior to our visit to make everything run smoothly, which it did. The pub is right next door for great meals as well. We'll be back again! Thank you.

Sue's grandparents moved from Singapore back to the UK in 1918 and then subsequently purchased the cottage in 1921. Sue has grown up in the village and we have raised our own family here. We have two daughters and two grandchildren. Our eldest daughter is married to a New Zealander and they live in Auckland.

We celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary this year and Robert's retirement as a Chartered Building Surveyor. We enjoy being active and gardening.

Our Airbnb journey so far has been wonderful, allowing us to meet lovely guests and their families from all over the world. The cottage has even be used in a recent TV programme featuring Marcus Brigstocke!
