This house is an absolute must. This is exactly what Air BnB is all about. A true taste of a quintessential English country house with a lovely family. A real treat!

Our stay at Harston Manor was delightful and it was Frances made it so! Frances is one of the kindest souls I have ever had the joy of meeting and I genuinely hope to cross paths with her again. She makes Harston what it is, and that is: a retreat from the chatter of collegiate Cambridge, a breath of refinery and joy, and a dignified home.

Rupert and Frances have a beautiful home and are excellent hosts. This was my second visit and everything was perfect. It's a very peaceful spot and the room was lovely with a very comfortable bed. Also, their dog is sweet. Highly recommended!

Response from Frances And Rupert:
Unfortunately I have cancelled Gerben's booking as my daughter has had to have a double lung transplant a few days ago and is currently on life support in ITU. As I will have to spend the next few weeks with her hopefully recovering at Harefield Hospital I have had to cancel all of my commitments.
