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 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 BBQ and outside dining area.
Smoking is only allowed in the garden.
We were pleasantly surprised by all the amenities provided by the host . Especially the fresh milk and coffee, there was no need to rush out to do the grocery if you had arrived late in the evening. Location was superb to walk to a M&S food or ASDA center. Also a short walk to a BHS to pick up last minute clothing necessities for a Cambridge graduation weekend. Home was very clean and manual was very helpful. The beds were very comfortable , with lovely cotton linens.
This was the perfect house for our visit to Cambridge with friends. We really liked the fact that Jane was there to welcome us on arrival and we felt at home immediately.
We were able to walk into the centre of Cambridge from the house but used the handy bus services a couple of times when we had spent long days sightseeing. This saved us the hassle of using our car and parking etc.
We had planned to dine out in the evenings but the house was such a welcoming place to return to that we chose to eat in. There are supermarkets and an M&S food store just minutes walk from the house and the kitchen/dining area is a lovely social area to prepare a meal and chat. The pretty garden was a great place to sit and have a glass of wine before dinner.
The beds were extremely comfortable with nice quality bedding - very important at the end of a tightly packed schedule during the day!
The house was very clean and we had all we needed. Although we did not have any queries or problems, we would not have hesitated to contact Jane if we had needed anything as she made us feel that she wanted everything to be right for us.
All in all this is a super house in a quiet and convenient location. Thank you Jane!
Clean and comfortable. All needs catered for . Fantastic location. Jane was friendly and helpful.
Very well located
Nice welcome by the host
Clean, big enough for 5 people
Het huis was erg goed uitgerust. De kamers waren ruim en schoon, ontbijt was voorzien en alles is aanwezig. Uitgeruste keuken, badkamer met handdoeken, etc. Bovendien heeft het huis veel karakter: goed ingericht, groot gezellig terras en leuk gelegen in een kalme wijk en vlakbij de supermarkt. Het was een heel aangenaam verblijf!
We really enjoyed our visit to Cambridge. Jane is a very thoughtful host, and her beautiful and well-equipped house was a pleasure to stay in. Location was excellent - city centre was 20 minutes walk. We'll be back to stay when we are next visiting Cambridge. Thanks again Jane!
We had a great stay, everything was taken care of, even dishwasher cubes were available. The beds were comfy and the house is in nice little neighborhood. Jane was also very communicative before our stay and made sure lights were on as we arrived late. She also extended check-out time upon our request. We definitely recommend staying here.
