The Space

Welcome to idyllic Cambridge and all of the quaint shops, wonderful restaurants, the River Cam and 31 different colleges to explore! Our serene and comfortable detached home, built in 2006, (non-smoking and pet free) offers 3 bedrooms (all upstairs) and 3.5 bathrooms (two with ensuite & all with private bath) and library, located in a quiet and secluded area (you might see fox, deer, pheasant, hedgehogs and more!) on a private driveway just 1 mile from the Cambridge City center! The bus (a short walk from the house) costs either £2.10 single, or £3.90 return/day fare, runs every 20 minutes throughout the day and is just a quick, 10-minute ride into the heart of Cambridge!

**Please note that we have a second single room available with a private bathroom.**

**The entire house, which will comfortably accommodate 5, is also available during Winter, Spring and Summer school breaks. The other two rooms (both with either 1 or 2 twin beds and private baths) are available the entire year when we are at home and are perfect for a group of 3 or less.** These are also listed on Airbnb.

WiFi, cable and all the comforts of home are only a 40-minute train ride from the heart of Central London and all of the wonderful sights and sounds that this great city has to offer! There is a fast and frequent train service from London King’s Cross & London Liverpool Street through to Cambridge.

The 2-story house has a CA King, Tempur-Pedic bed in the Master bedroom with ensuite (only available when we are away) and two twin beds with an ensuite bath in the second room. A single twin bed with private bath (right outside in the hall) completes the third bedroom and bed linens and towels are provided. There are 3 TV/DVD combos., microwave, toaster and hot water kettle.

Our indoor dining area seats four and the outside dining area will seat six comfortably. The fenced back yard is a tranquil and serene Japanese style garden, complete with an Irish granite rock water feature, black bamboo and cherry blossom trees.

A perfect base for a group of 5 (when we are away) or 1-3 (when we are at home) who want to explore the United Kingdom and all it has to offer with easy access to London, Heathrow, Stansted and more. Come stay at our comfortable, stress-free home for an entire month and pay less than what you would for just a week's stay in London!

** Please, NON-SMOKERS only and note that the Street View is a very old image and our neighborhood now looks much greener. If you are driving, please do not park on the grass in front of our house. There is parking either at the end of the private drive or anywhere along the street.**

  • Sherri and Edward have been great hosts while we have been in Cambridge and very accommodating! The house and our room were very clean and it was nice to have a private ensuite connected to the room. The neighbourhood is very safe and generally pretty quiet. The bus stop is a 5 min walk from the house and buses run every 20min to the city Mon-Sat and every hr on Sundays.
    Thank you again for welcoming us into your home and also sharing your knowledge of the area with us.

  • Sherri and her husband were kind and even offered us the use of the kitchen. I'm a quite reserved person and they respected my personal space.
    The beds were very comfortable and the whole house was beautifully decorated.
    I certainly recommend this comfy house, but you have to be aware of how you'll get there, as public transport in Cambridge is not very good during the weekend and the house is a bit distant from the centre.

  • We stayed in the middle of winter and it was a very warm and cosy room/house. Sherri and Edward were welcoming and friendly. It was a good base to explore Cambridge.

  • Our weekend in Cambridge was made even more enjoyable by staying in this cosy room. Beds were comfy, everything was spotlessly clean and the heating was perfect.

  • We booked the room at the,last minute and Sherri and Edward were very accommodating. We enjoyed the private bathroom. The house is very quiet! We were working in Cambridge and the bus was close and convenient to get into town. If you stay in Girton try the George inn for Thai food. Thanks Sherri for a nice stay.

  • It was a pleasure to stay in Sherri's house in Cambridge, her hospitality, kindness and generosity was very much appreciated during our stay. Sherri had a wealth of knowledge on the local area providing places to visit, things to do and on restaurants where to eat. I would definitely recommend Sherri's house to anyone wanting to stay in the Cambridge area.
