    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...

The property is well situated for getting to many attractions in the area and for accessing Cambridge easily. Having both Middlefield Farm and Keepers Cottage gave us good versatile accommodation for sleeping and still being able to all eat together. more

Management response:

I am glad you all enjoyed your stay and you will be pleased to know that the new bathroom is now fully functional. I hope we see you again soon. more

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 19 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

I traveled with a work group who were training at the nearby TWI, and who decided that we would avoid booking a hotel, and with some doubts about if we would kill each other...

John the owner was absolutely wonderful, and dealt with our idiosyncratic needs without a blink. The house was all we had hoped for and much more! As we were working we didn't get to enjoy the garden much, but we went running more than once in the lovely countryside, and most importantly we ate in almost every night, a fantastic change from hotel food.

The cottage is huge, and had all of the necessary facilities to cook and feed a large group, as well as the pool table and lots of board games to amuse us. Despite staying during december, the house was warm and toasty. We loved the relaxing feeling of "coming home" at the end of the day instead of all splitting off to anonymous hotel rooms.

Management response:

Thank you for your excellent review, which encapsulates the benefits of self catering on a business trip very well. I hope we see you again. John more
