The award winning Blue Cow offers guests a boutique bed and breakfast experience with a twist.The beautiful self contained cottage comprises a spacious bedroom, lounge, kitchen/breakfast room and shower More room and has been styled with elegance and with the comfort of guests in mind.Furnished to the highest standards, it is both private, quiet and cosy, providing the perfect base for exploring Cambridge and beyond and is the ideal home from home for business travellers.Uniquely, guests enjoy a delicious 'DIY' in-house breakfast of their choice at a time that suits them.Situated in the pretty Cambridgeshire village of Fenstanton, near the historic market towns of St Ives and Huntingdon, the converted stables is set in a peaceful garden courtyard, though within easy reach of the A14.Guests enjoy daily housekeeping, adjacent off street parking and free Wi-Fi.
