We spent 2 nights at Lynwood House having chosen to visit Cambridge for the 1st time as part of a 2week "holiday at home" (being unable to go away on holiday because of caring for elderly parents). The location is ideal as it`s only a couple of minutes walk to Jesus Green which then takes you on a pleasant 10-15 minute walk by the river into Cambridge and shops, pubs, restaurants and all the sights. There are only a few parking spaces at the front of the property and fortunately we were able to park there. Nick and Julie are welcoming and friendly and have made Lynwood House into a stylish but comfortable B&B. We were in Room 1, which is at the front of the house on the ground floor next to the front door, and although there is a bit of traffic noise we didn`t find this a problem. The room is beautifully decorated and furnished and very clean. The shower room is very modern and although quite compact it`s more than adequate for a short stay, and the power shower is superb! Toiletries are provided as are tea/coffee making facilities and bottled water. The breakfast room is light and airy and again attractively furnished and the breakfasts really are fantastic - good quality fresh produce, well cooked , and very good coffee. We particularly enjoyed the smoked haddock with poached eggs! We loved the Botanic Gardens and also walking along The Backs and going into some of the Colleges. You do have to pay (varying from £1 to £7.50) but it gives you a real flavour of Cambridge and King`s College Chapel is simply stunning! There are plenty of places to eat in Cambridge, we ate at the Curry King where the food was very good but we didn`t like the atmosphere at all, and then at a Tapas restaurant which was really good. We had a wonderful stay in Cambridge, there is so much to see and do that we want to return and if we do we will most certainly book Lynwood House again.
