The front bedroom has a great view down the road and has a small (4ft) double bed and a t.v. Duvets in both rooms have down fillings, but can be changed for synthetic filling if needed
If this room is shown as unavailable please check the listing for the rear room that maybe available, https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/536025 if you want the two room you will have to book them separately (it's how the site works).
Persons booking this room should understand that the other room remains available for other visitors and if booked the bathroom will be sheared with them.

We are a three minutes walk from the intercity coach stop, a fifteen minutes walk from the rail station and five minutes from the local bus station.
The streets around the house have residential parking only but visitors permits are available for £2 per day,if you can find a place. Note. Parking permits are needed even on Sunday's so unless you are leaving before 9am you may need 2 days worth.
As the rooms are up two floors of stairs and the bathroom is half a flight down from them, they may not be suitable for persons with impaired mobility
Take off outdoor shoes before going upstairs, smoking in the back garden only. Take care that the dog doesn't get out on to the street
Very welcoming. Efficient and allowed me to make a quick turn-round on checkin.
Clean, convenient and comfortable. Lovely breakfast and great to be able to park.
Great location. Lovely room. Very clear listing. Overall an excellent experience (and a gorgeous dog).
This is a great location. The room was very clean and large. Steve and Rachel made it easy for us with flexibility around arrival and leaving. This is a great location. The only downside were the stairs because we had heavy bags because we are traveling for seven weeks.
In June 2015 I came to Cambridge for my son's Graduation Ceremony. As through Graduation week Cambridge Hotels ask for breathttaking prices, I chose Steve and Rachels house instead: Close to Cambridge Bus Stop and in walking distance to the Colleges, moreover in a part of Cambridge with the most charming pubs.
I felt treated like a queen in Steve and Rachels house: Homemade strawberry jam, Crusty fresh bread, good Coffee and Orange juice for breakfast in a beautiful kitchen. Five stars from me.
And then the garden, where I was welcomed to sit, surrounded by roses, Lavender bushes and a cherry tree, full of blackbirds munching away at the shiny fruits. Heaven for me, a City girl from Berlin.
The bed: haven't slept so well in ages. The bathroom, simple, clean, thick towel and a bathrobe and slippers: Heaven!
Dear Steve, dear Rachel: Thank you so much for the warm welcome, the high standard of service, the opening of your beautiful garden for me.
And for future guests: This is the highest standard of Bed and Breakfast via Airbnb I ever had so far. go for it!
A clean, quiet and central location with excellent hosts who maximised our experience by providing good advice and also provided breakfast which was very much appreciated. We ate our first meal seated in the very pretty back garden.
I had a brief but very pleasant stay! Arrived late, left early, but the communication was smooth and the room was very comfortable. I'll be back.
The house is located near my university and only 5-7 minutes walk to the city center. Everything is very convenient and comfortable. Steve is a very friendly and helpful host. Nice to spend a week here!
