March Cottage is a charming Grade II period cottage dating back to 17th Century with an abundance of character throughout.

The cottage is situated in the tranquil village of Ickleton with an excellent local pub and plenty of fields for country walks.

It is ideal for those wanting to visit historic Cambridge (12 miles) or the charming market town of Saffron Walden (5 miles).

Friends of mine have often compared it to the cottage from The Holiday (sadly Jude Law is unlikely to turn up though).

The space
The cottage is a cosy family home that we are renting out while living in London. It has a lovely cosy home away from home feel to it with an open brick fireplace and exposed beams through-out. Being an old house, it is perfectly imperfect in the way that it has some quirks such as creaky floorboards and none of the walls are perfectly aligned which only adds to the charm of this 17th century property!
It includes:
- Sitting/ living room with working fireplace, smart TV, corner desk, dinning area and French doors leading out to the garden
- Country style kitchen/breakfast room with AGA
- Two double bedrooms with en suites, one bath and one shower room
- Utility room with fridge-freezer, dishwasher and washing machine
- Off street parking, space for 2 cars
- Private, enclosed garden at the rear of the cottage which has recently been landscaped.

Guests should be aware that some of the spaces inside the cottage, particularly the doorways, are quite low so remember to duck when going through them!

Where you’ll be

Ickleton, England, United Kingdom

Ickleton is a charming little village on the outskirts of Cambridgeshire. There are lots of nearby fields and paths for country walks. The village has a lovely pub, The Ickleton Lion, and a small village shop for the basics.

The nearest train station about 1 mile (about 25 mins - although not recommended to walk in the dark) in the next village, Great Chesterford.

Saffron Walden is a beautiful market town which is 5 miles (15 drive) away, there is a great market on Tuesday and Saturday mornings. The town is lovely to explore with some great shops and pretty streets. Audley End is a stunning stately home which is lovely for a day trip. Audley End also has a miniature railway which is great for kids.

The beautiful University town of Cambridge is about 20 minutes drive (or train from Great Chesterford). It is a wonderful place for picturesque punting and sightseeing.

Duxford air museum is in the next village and includes lots of aircrafts, military vehicles, artillery and minor naval vessels as well as collections of material such as film, photographs, documents, books and artefacts.

I have lived in Cambridgshire on-off since I was 1 and love how relaxing and beautiful it is. I adore the countryside and am happy to be able to share my country cottage with airbnb guests while I am living and working in London. My cottage is cosy and has a very welcoming, home-vibe.
