Other Things to Note
Weekend Bookings. as a rule we prefer to book guests for two nights (or more) .
We spent 3 days at Frances & Rupert's beautiful house and garden. An almost aristocratic environment made us feel that William & Kate could be there any minute for a cup of tea.
We had a lovely stay - Frances and Rupert made us feel really welcome and the room and their house is lovely.
Had a lovely stay at the Manor. Would recommend it to anyone. Only a £15 taxi ride to central Cambridge so a much better option than expensive central hotels.
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Harston. Manor. Frances and Rupert were the perfect hosts.
Our second stay at Harston with Frances and Rupert, and it was every bit as good as the first time!
A wonderful house and delightful hosts in every way.
We are already plotting reasons to revisit this part of the country, just so we can stay with them again :-)
Our stay at Harston Manor was marvellous. Frances wasn't around that weekend but Rupert looked after us superbly. The house is very elegant and the bed was extremely comfortable. Popping into Cambridge was easy and aided by Rupert's expert advice on where to drive and park. Breakfast was delicious and we had a marvellous time. Thank you both!
We enjoyed our night in the Manor House, which was warm and inviting. The room was as described with a comfortable bed. The bathroom has a great shower. We had a good chat with Rupert over breakfast before we explored the grounds. If you're looking to book in summer it would be even more amazing. Thank you Frances and Rupert.
