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!

This listing is for a single twin bedroom with a private, full bathroom (not ensuite but right outside in the hall) available in our 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom house. Bed linens and towels are provided. There are 3 TV/DVD combos., microwave, toaster and hot water kettle.

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.

**Please note that we also have a second twin room with 2 beds and an ensuite bathroom available.**

**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 both listed on Airbnb.

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.

It is the 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.**

Professionals, mature students/travelers, etc. who are looking for a quiet place to study and/or relax and rejuvenate are always welcome!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Beautiful house, lovely, clean, comfortable room, friendly, kind hosts, well organised kitchen and also convenient transport to city centre..... Everything there is so perfect! If you come to Cambridge, definitely recommend to live there, won't regret :)

  • Sherri was incredibly nice, gave me recommendations on where to go and what to see in Cambridge. The space was really pleasing, clean, and I was able to enjoy my stay while moving back and forth between there and the city center. You'll need to use the bus to go back and forth, but they come frequently during he day time and the walk is not bad at all (especially if you like walks).

  • Really liked my stay at sherri and edwards such a lovely home and well presented, I wasnt bothered on my stay and the room was very cosy :) I will be booking again

  • The room was clean and really big. The bathroom is clean and close to the room, I had a great bath (but there isn't a shower). The kitchen is big and clean. 8 minutes on foot to the bus station and 10 minutes to the city center by bus.
    Edward (Sherri's husband) was a great host. RECOMMENDED.

    La casa è in un quartiere di nuova costruzione, tranquillo e sicuro. La stanza era pulita ed il bagno privato era davvero pulito, ma solo con la vasca (no doccia). La cucina è ampia e ben sfruttabile. Consigliato!

  • Edward was a very welcoming host and the room was exceptionally clean and tidy, overall a great stay

  • Convenient, clean and tidy. Friendly hosts.

    Unfortunately no breakfast even although this is a Bed and Breakfast website!

    Response from Sherri:

    John asked about breakfast and I explained why it is no longer offered...it is also clearly stated on our listings that there is no breakfast, although we do provide tea and coffee. Finally, airbnb has many different options available depending on what the host chooses to provide. I'm sorry that he felt it necessary to still make a remark about it.

  • The house and room were beautiful, and very clean. Sherri and Edward were welcoming and helpful.

  • Sherri and Edward were really fantastic hosts. The single room is quite spacious and has it own bathroom just 2 next doors. The surrounding area is fairly peaceful and safe, given the fact that I had a car it was no problem to park it off the street.

    Conclusion: I can highly recommend this place to stay on a short-term basis. By car you get in 10 min into Centre and by bike in 16 min

  • All clean, tidy and comfortable. Sherri and Edward were both friendly and helpful.

    Bus routes Citi 5 and 6 pass the end of the road, about 6-7 minutes walk, and go direct to the city centre. Fare is £2.10 single, or £3.90 return/day rider.

    September 2013
  • I greatly enjoyed my stay with Sherri and her husband Edward. They were extremely friendly and accommodating. The house was immaculately kept and was ideal for my needs. I have no hesitation in recommending this Airbnb and would happily stay there again when next in Cambridge.
