    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5
    This contemporary farm building conversion is set within 4 acres (1.7 Hectares) of private parkland on the Gog Magog hills minutes by car or bike from Cambridge city centre. The grounds consist of open spaces suitable for ball games, woodland with sheltered picnic areas and orchard.

    The tranquility and easy access to historic Cambridge City and surrounding attractions make this the ideal location for both business and leisure. Several restaurants are within easy reach and both the Shelford Deli and Bradford's Farm shop can provide home made ready made meals.

    This detached dwelling stands on the very top of the Gog Magog hills on the edge of Cambridge. Consequently during the conversion all walls floor and ceiling were insulated to well above the required building regulation standard...

    How to get there
    Airport: Stansted: 41.0 km
    Railway: Shelford: 3.0 km
    Ferry: Harwich: 120.0 km
    Flying - Nearest Airport is Stansted - approximately 42km and there are several options in addition to car hire, including train and coach. Please contact us for specific details.

    Driving - We strongly suggest that you enter the post code CB22 5BX into either your sat. nav. or Google Maps. Either will probably get you to the junction of Haverhill road and Gog Magog Way. (Tested with Tom Tom and Google maps but not all sat. nav. systems)

    With the Stapleford recreation ground on your left, drive out of the 30 mph speed zone and after approximately 1/2 mile take the first driveway on the left (sign for Keepers Cottage). This is a shared driveway over which we have right of way. Drive to the top of the hill (400m) passing signs for The House on the Hill and No Through Road. Just after...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 14 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed at The Stables for 2 weeks over the Christmas New Year period. Although looking quite rustic on the exterior, the inside was modern, well equipped, warm and comfortable. There were some great personal touches, such as a Christmas tree with lights, and a thoughtful selection of DVDs to cater for all age groups. The owner was a perfect... more

Management response:

Thank you for your excellent review and I am glad you enjoyed your stay at the Stables. It is a deceptive property and its rustic exterior hides the fact that there is the equivalent to 12 inches of insulation in many areas, which makes it warm even on the coldest days. I do hope we see you again. John more

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 20 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed at The Stables for a week whilst visiting a number of friends in the area. The Stables are an unusual property - a wooden construction but, despite some really wild weather, we were always warm and comfortable throughout the stay. The grounds are stunning and the children loved exploring the pathways cut through the wooded area as well... more

Management response:

We are glad you enjoyed the property to the full and thank you for your constructive comments. These have prompted us to revisit some of the internal finishing, which is now much improved. We look forward to you staying again. Best Wishes John more

We were down to go to the Cambridge folk festival and this place just fitted the bill. We were close enough that access to the city and the festival was very straightforward, but just far enough away to give us the sense of being in the middle of the countryside. The weather was extremely hot but the house remained comfortable.... more

Management response:

Thank you for your very positive review, which I think captures the essence of the property very well. I am glad you enjoyed the pitch and put and hope to see you again in the not too distant future. more
