Interaction with Guests
We assume most guests book the cottage to relax and sometimes to get away from everyday life. The cottage is self contained and so unless there is a specific issue that needs addressing we tend to keep to ourselves. Often we will greet the guests on arrival but if we are not at that moment in time we will tend to leave guests alone.
If required a double inflatable bed is provided if there are more than 2 guests. Bed linen and towels supplied but no face cloths. Please drive slowly (20mph) along Long Lane and full instructions regarding power supply to the cottage, electronic entrance gate codes & internet will be supplied on booking in the house manual. The cottage has it's own keys and you are welcome to come and go as you please. Please email/call regarding any other specific requests such as an iron, hairdryer or microwave. These are only provided in request.
Great host, very friendly. Not intrusive at all, but quick to assist if required. Property set in great grounds and is a cosy place to be.
Nice surrounding walks and food / drinks in Dog and Duck highly recommended!
I had a lovely peaceful weekend at Conrad's cottage. The gardens and woods are lovely, and the cottage is well equipped with everything you need. As other people have said, the cottage was straightforward to find as Conrad provided clear instructions on how to get there, as well as how to connect to the wifi etc. A great place for a relaxing break.
Conrad's wonderful windmill - not your ordinary Airbnb but definitely one worth experiencing. We had a lovely time, found the place as described and were comfy and well looked-after. Conrad was kind enough to pick us up and tell us some stories. Linton is a lovely village that bizarrely has its own zoo - as well as the excellent Dog and Duck pub we also recommend the Linton Kitchen tea shop, but the real treat was visiting the lemurs at feeding time (make sure to book in advance). We found it easy enough to get the bus into Cambridge and it runs back quite late. All in all, highly recommended.
The cottage is in a great location to explore Cambridge and its easy to find. Conrad's instructions made letting ourselves in extremely easy. We were a little disappointed with the cleanliness of bedroom and value for money however would still recommend this as a great city escape!
Lovely use of a small and cozy space, clean bedroom and bathroom. Freezing cold shower (maybe our fault for not turning that on however would of been nice to of had that already on)
No complaints, fair price.
As described, the Cosy Cottage is a comfortable and peaceful place to unwind. Kitted out with all the necessities we enjoyed a night stay, using the kitchen facilities to make dinner and relax in the evening. As other guests have mentioned, we were free to come and go as we pleased. We didn't meet Conrad, but that suited us fine. We look forward to staying again!
Would definitely recommend to anyone! The cottage was lovely and is in a perfect location. The owner was friendly and helpful. We had a very enjoyable stay and would happily go back.
Conrad lives at Windmill House with a large but good Dobermann and would also welcome visitors with one dog. The cottage is attached to the large Tower Windmill built in 1836 which dominates the 7 acres of grounds and our house. The property is very secure and quiet but within walking distance of the local high street in the picturesque conservation village of Linton.
Conrad now runs a commercial property investment company following a career at Sotheby's as an art expert. He has a very keen interest in photography & speaks good French and a smattering of Italian. Having lived for a number of years in Australia, New York as well as spending time in Europe he also enjoys, fly fishing, motorcycles, formula 1, art & antiques.
