Our home is a large house in central Cambridge, within walking distance of famous Kings College, the River Cam, quaint cobbled streets, multiple museums and galleries, etc.

(SWAP FULFILLED FOR SUMMER 2022)

We have five bedrooms: (1) King, (2) Double, (3) SuperKing (can also be arranged as Twin or Single), (4) Twin and (5) Single. We also have a lovely sunny, SW-facing garden, bicycles, parking, Netflix and Prime, and two cats. (PS The cats would like feeding! But we can arrange someone to help if you prefer.)

About the location

Cambridge is one of the UK`s prettiest towns, and close to London. With the prestigious University and colleges at its heart, it blends ancient and contemporary landmarks in a fascinating mix including cobbled streets, winding river, towering gothic chapels, serene cows and swans, famous libraries and museums, quirky pubs, contemporary galleries and sculptures, top-quality shopping, guided walking, cycling, punting and ghost tours. There is so much on offer!

From our house, it is a lovely journey (5 minute cycle; 15 minute walk) to the heart of the "old city" centre. The route includes quiet tree-lined streets, a pedestrianised bridge over the RIver Cam and finally Cambridge`s famous Jesus Green.

The Cambridge Tourist Information website keeps a full list of events and things to do. See https://www.cambridgetouristinformation.co.uk/

For those who like a touch of luxe on holiday: we are also within walking distance of "The Varsity" with its decadent spa and rooftop bar, and the Michelin starred restaurant, Midsommer House (bookings required).

In the nearby countryside, there is Ely Cathedral, a bouncy aqua park, country parklands, BMX pump tracks, go-karting, the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds, horse riding and much more. London is just one hour by train. And for a day trip to the seaside, choose between all the beaches on the Norfolk and Suffolk coasts.
