“Amazing house perfect for trips to Cambridge”
Reviewed 1 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

After looking at what felt hundreds of possibilities for a Surprise birthday gathering for my Fiancee, i finally found this gem of a house.

It was a perfect option and with more than enough space for 9 of us to lounge around in the pool and have a perfect get together all finished off with a dinner cooked in the amazing kitchen.

With it also being close enough for everyone to get there and close enough to Cambridge that we could all have lunch and wander round the historic city.

It also helped that the owner James couldn't have been more helpful with answering any questions i had and the booking process was simple. The lovely gesture of champagne and chocolates on arrival really says it all.

Thanks again James and Beechwood house for a wonderful stay, already looking forward to returning soon

“Fantastic weekend with friends”
Reviewed 7 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I spent a long weekend at Beechwood House with a group of 6 friends in October. The whole process - from booking/arriving/departing - was made incredibly easy. James met us when we arrived, making us feel very welcome. The house itself was perfect for what we were looking for - the large kitchen and dining areas were ideal, as was the large sitting room area with television. We also made use of the swimming pool, which was pleasantly heated at what was otherwise a cold time of year! Aside from spending evenings at the house, most daytimes were passed walking around and exploring the local area, which can be highly recommended to anybody planning a visit.

In all this was a thoroughly enjoyable weekend, which was largely due to such a fantastic house. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Beechwood House and hope one day to make a return visit.

“Amazing Weekend!!”
Reviewed 9 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

'Amazing Weekend....
Myself and 9 friends stayed at Beechwood House to celebrate a 30th birthday party....and what a treat it was. The host James was very welcoming and had put out a bottle of fizz, chocolates and fruit out for our arrival which was a lovely surprise! Thank you so much James. The house is spacious, well furnished and the beds very comfortable. There was more than enough space for the 10 of us and we enjoyed using all of the amenities including the garden games and the indoor pool. The location is beautiful and tranquil but also not far from local attractions if you wish to explore. I would highly recommend a stay at this beautiful house and I will definitely be returning in the future to enjoy the whole experience again. Thanks for helping to make this birthday weekend so special! '

“A beautiful, comfortable house both indoors and out.”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

There were 11 of us, family and closest friends, who came to enjoy the Cambridge Folk Festival and to celebrate a 40th and a 70th birthday. Our youngest was provided with a cot to sleep in and we had fold-up beds provided as we had a toddler who needed to be with his parents and a brother who no longer shared with his sister. All of this was accommodated for by James. There are plenty of bathrooms, showers and toilets available.
The house's interior is spacious with a comfortable, relaxed feel about it. We particularly liked the kitchen / dining area which is large with a settee as well as a table with seating for 10 plus a high chair. The dining area opens out into the first huge garden which then leads through an arch into the further and farther huge garden. We had mainly dry weather so the children could run in and out freely and safely, as the garden area is fenced off from the front of the house. Outdoor eating was great with a BBQ , table and seating under cover. It all felt very easy.
The swimming pool, in its own building, is a reasonable size and was warm. We used it frequently; it was a big attraction for us all as even the baby "swims". Great fun!
Some of us made it to the Festival which was 5 to 10 minutes away by car.

“Group 40th Birthday Celebration”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Booked this house so that myself and nine friends could have a group 40th birthday celebration.

Throughout the booking process, the owner couldn't have been more helpful, offering advice and information when requested.

Upon arrival, the house and service received surpassed all expectations. It is a beautiful property that perfectly suited our requirements; large bedrooms are all tastefully decorated, and the large kitchen/dining room were perfect for the group gathering/celebration. The indoor swimming pool and massive private garden were the icing on a very special cake!

The location is ideal - far enough away from Cambridge to make the house access easy, but close enough to allow for a quick trip into the city.

All in all, an excellent property for a large gathering, and I would be more than happy to make a booking there in the future.

“Birthday celebration”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had a lovely welcome from James on arrival and found both the house and garden exceeded our expectations, which were pretty high! Beechwood feels like a family home, well thought out, spacious and extremely comfortable. Rooms are large and uncluttered, beautifully fitted out in a quiet, unfussy style and we loved the big sofas in the living room. Outside the garden is safely enclosed with lots of space for running around (and we were able to watch the children from inside the house when we didn't want to race round any more). A wonderful place for a special celebration. Thanks James.

“A comfortable, spacious and welcoming house”
Reviewed 5 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Beechwood House is a delightful and welcoming house to stay in. We used it and the two studio apartments as a base for a family wedding. All the members of our party enjoyed the comforts it provided along with the space it afforded to us all during the weekend preparations.

The kitchen and dining area was well equipped and provided a great social area for the evening gathering, the night before the wedding.

James made us feel very welcome on arrival and the wine, chocolates and fruit were very much appreciated.

Our whole party were very impressed with the quality and size of Beechwood House. The pool is a great place to unwind in and the gardens were a delight to wander in.

We would have no hesitation in returning to this wonderful property for future family occasions.
