“Perfect little gem”
Reviewed 25 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We loved the White Barn. It is exceptionally well equipped, a lovely little garden area with seating and off road parking. Fabulous hosts who were welcoming, but unobtrusive. A great location for Cambridge and nearby National Trust properties.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 27 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The White Barn is clean, comfortable and well equipped
Cambridge is easy to get to and from with the Park & Ride and we would recommend a short trip to Duxford Air Museum. It was a short break for us for me to bring back some childhood memories. We didn't do a half of what we wanted to and will not hesitate to book The White Barn when we return.

“Clean and cosy”
Reviewed 23 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I took my partner away for a mini break and wanted somewhere close to Cambridge so we could visit there by day. We were not disappointed the white barn was lovely and clean and really cosy, the sofa was nice a comfy too. The Barn is a great base for Cambridge and the local area, and is well equipped, with iron, tea and sugar etc.
Only thing I would point out is the Barn is on a road which runs through the village and has a steady flow of cars which can mean you get some noise from them during the day. I found Claire very good to deal with and would recommend the Barn to others wanting to stay in and around this area!

“Comfortable stay”
Reviewed 15 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

The Barn was warm and welcoming. We enjoyed tea in the living room looking outwards onto the garden. It has everything you need in a property.
Having a car is advisable as you can explore the surrounding areas easily.
Hamerton zoo park is only 20 minutes away and was great.
Thank you Claire and family for a beautiful weekend.

“Prefect cosy home from home”
Reviewed 17 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

At last a place to stay which is as it says on the website. All the information provided is up today and location instructions by car are ideal. The booking process is clear and the contact from Claire is very helpful. The parking is ideal for of loading in the rain and dark as it was when I arrived. A warm welcome with the heating on and milk in the fridge. The en-suite shower kicks out lots of hot water from a proper shower head, my greatest hate is a busted old shower head........I stayed for 8 nights, I was out all day training with BMW nr Royston, cooking in the evening in the well equipped kitchen. The internet and tv reception is good.
Will be going back as I have to do more training.
Well done Claire keep up the good work.

Me and my girlfriend spent the weekend at the White barn! We had a lovely stay and the cottage was beautiful! Nice and close for accessing Cambridge with the park and ride only up the a14.
