Interaction with Guests
I aim to meet guests either upon arrival or departure and I am easily contactable by phone, text or email at any time. However, the place is entirely your own while you are here. There's an extensive information folder and local brochures, maps and recommendations. Wifi access is fast and there's a printer for your use.
The townhouse is in a peaceful development around an open green space with gardens and children's play areas. It is moments from the nearest food shops and a pleasant walk from the centre of Cambridge with its beautiful colleges, churches, parks and river.
The townhouse is a 15 minute walk from the train station, or 20 minutes from the main bus/coach station. Local buses are only 5 minutes away.
Other Things to Note
There's everything you need to cook and entertain, including a picnic hamper, a BBQ and an outside dining area.
Smoking is only allowed in the garden.
Great place. The house was very clean and there was even milk bread and tea bags for our arrival. Would really recommend for a weekend in Cambridge.

Wir haben zu viert eine Woche in diesem wunderbaren Haus verbracht. Die Küche ist fantastisch! Zweimal haben wir Freunde zum Essen eingeladen und im Garten gegrillt.
Am letzten Tag haben wir Jane persönlich getroffen. Sie ist ein wunderbarer Mensch und ihr Haus ein Schmuckkästchen. Wir kommen nächstes Jahr wieder!
We were two couples staying for a week in this wonderful house. The kitchen is fantastic! Twice we invited friends for dinner and had a barbecue in the garden. On our last day we met Jane in person. She is a wonderful person and her house is a little jewellry box (as we say in Germany). We come back next year!
My family is from Shanghai, China to attend my son's graduation ceremony in Cambridge University. All of us felt so comfortable to stay in Jane's house just like in our own home. Everything in the house is much better than our expectations. Also, the location is very good and the supermarket is just in two minutes waking distance. If I have a chance to back Cambridge again, I will definitely choose Jane's house to stay.
Jane was very easy to contact and provided excellent directions for access to the flat and parking of our car. The flat was exactly everything we needed for our trip to Cambridge. We travelled with our 3 sons, ages 5, 7 & 11 years old, and there was plenty of space for everyone in the flat. The kitchen is fabulous if you want to prepare your own meals and there are grocery stores conveniently just behind the flat. There was a great little playground around the corner for the boys to run around in. Jane also provided a welcome food pack, which helped settle us in the first day. Easy to walk to everything we wanted to see and do in Cambridge.
After a long flight from Shanghai to London, all of my family were so surprise when we stepped into Jane's house, everything's so good! We felt so great to stay in the house. Thanks Jane for everything!
Really, lovely place, clean and comfortable with enough bathrooms to accommodate large groups. We would stay there again.
Lovely house, just as described, in a very quiet neighbourhood. House was very well kitted out with everything we needed, particularly the kitchen – Jane had even left bread and milk for us, as well as things like oil. The whole stay was very good, Jane was really helpful, and we can thoroughly recommend staying here.
