The Bakehouse is a totally self contained, newly renovated characterful detached annex to the left of our house. We also have "The Cob" and "The Barn", each suitable for 2 adults.

Situated in a quiet position overlooking historic Thriplow's village green.

Just a minute's walk and you reach the award winning community run gastro pub or well stocked village shop.

Only 8 miles from the city of Cambridge, so perfect for anyone visiting or working in Cambridge or the surrounding area.

The space
We have renovated The Bakehouse with loving care and attention to detail and to the highest possible standard - specifically with Airbnb in mind. It is characterful and historic (within the kitchen is the site of the original baker’s oven!).

The accommodation includes; a bedroom (with King size bed) and Roberts radio; a sitting room with sofa, table/chairs (an ideal work space) and wall mounted Smart TV; a separate kitchen (with built in oven & hob, microwave, fridge, washer-dryer, Nespresso coffee machine); and a bathroom (with large walk in shower, mirror with shaver socket, basin and toilet).

Where you’ll be

Thriplow, England, United Kingdom

Thriplow is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 and is laid out as a loose figure-of-eight of lanes with a lattice of footpaths and green fields between. While the oldest dated cottage is 1687, there is much that is older and deep seated in the past too.
The footpaths take you through fields, woods and orchid meadows; in spring, the whole village is awash with daffodils.
Indeed Thriplow is famous for its annual Daffodil Weekend and Country Fair: it’s a village fair that attracts up to 10,000 visitors for the weekend who come to enjoy a range of rural attractions, stalls and village hospitality and is reported as being one of the best loved charity events in Cambridgeshire!
The village is an active and thriving community with many village groups, interests and activities, including a cricket club where you can watch cricket during the summer.

Our pub (the award-winning The Green Man) is just a 2 minute walk from The Bakehouse, across The Green. It is a community owned pub that is run by Alex and Mike and they’ve built up an amazing reputation in the local area for offering both fresh, seasonal food and Tapas too. If you’d like to eat there during your stay we recommend you book.
Thriplow also has a community run well-stocked Village Shop, where you can drop in for a coffee and perhaps fresh baked croissants or pastries too.

During your stay

Richard and I live in The Old Bakery, next to The Bakehouse, and so we’re on hand to help and chat as much or as little as you'd like.

You should find it easy to get hold of us as we run a business from home, so we're used to constantly checking emails and texts too.

There is also a file in The Bakehouse with local information, including some suggested walks directly from your front door through to information about shops, places to eat, transport options and, of course, what to see and do in Cambridge.
