“Lovely warm, friendly, stylish B & B”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

We were greeted by the charming owner on arrival, made welcome and shown to our lovely room. The rooms are all modern, tastefully decorated and have everything you need. It was a wild, wet, windy November evening but the room was snug and the efficient shower and bathroom allowed us to freshen up before venturing out. Just 100m down the road is a very nice pub / restaurant called The Anchor where we had a fantastic meal. We woke in the morning to lovely views of the delightful gardens of the property and across open farm land to the fens. We then went into the owners barn conversion (a truly beautiful building) for a very tasty home cooked full English breakfast. This was made from local produce and was accompanied by all the usual breakfast goodies and lots of lovely fresh coffee. We would strongly recommend this b&b and it is in an ideal location if you are visiting Cambridge or Ely.

Visited this B & B twice this year, once with friends, recently with family. Both occasions we stayed in the annex, firstly in the Loft Room, latterly in the Barn Room. Both are compact but beautifully equipped, clean and very comfortable. Joanne, mine hostess, is great. Always willing to do whatever is needed to make a holiday retreat to Grove Barn a happy time, we have experienced her willingness to go beyond "the extra" mile even at extraordinary personal cost. A lovely hostess, comfortable accommodation, then, to top it all off, there is the traditional full "English" breakfast. All beautifully prepared, cooked and presented, experience indicates that whilst the temptation is always to "go for it", the appetite just can't compete. It may be just me, but the full "English" at Grove Barn is not something you can maintain for too long. Comfortable, well appointed rooms, a fantastic breakfast of choice, a lovely hostess, a convenient location between both Ely and Cambridge. What more could anyone want? There's a very nice gastro pub 2 minutes walk away. Great!

Room Tip: The Loft Room is restricted in width due to low roof eaves.

Beautiful accommodation where everything was of the highest quality and we received a warm, friendly welcome. The furnishings, breakfast and hospitality were all fabulous.

I would certainly stay here again if returning to the area.

Well if you could I would !
This is a really lovely find out about 8 miles from Ely down a little lane.
The 3 rooms ( one in loft ) are in an annexe and although not huge are beautifully equipped,
spotlessly clean and tidy and very comfortable.
The view from the loft room is over open fields and their lovely garden.
The breakfast is superb - with a full fry up on offer as well as a good variety of teas and cereal.
Joanne is the perfect host and when we left it was almost like we had known her for ages.
Great place- to be recommended.
The Anchor Inn is about 2 minutes walk up the road which is unlit but of course Joanne thought of that and provides an umbrella and a torch in each room .
The food at The Anchor was completely lovely so do go there for a drink at least.

Just returned from 4 nights here. Really lovely rooms in a quiet location. Everything is spotless and well equipped. We had the Garden Room which was lovely. Compact bathroom can be a challenge but soon got used to it.
Joanne was a great host and gave us some good steers for eating out nearby. Really enjoyed our breakfasts in the main house, a beautifully done barn conversion. We would definitely recommend this great b&b handy for Ely & Cambridge.

Room Tip: Enjoy the peaceful location.

We stayed for two nights at this delightful bed & breakfast. The rooms are very comfortable & spotlessly clean with quality furnishings. The breakfast was delicious & beautifully presented, Joanne is a very helpful & pleasant host. The Breakfast room was stunning & in a very peaceful location.

Room Tip: We went in all the rooms as we travelled with friends & they were all equally as good.

Had a lovely stay in the loft room. Bathroom could do with a window but i do think that is about to happen. Nice gardens to relax in and read a good book or just to sit with a nice glass of wine. Joanne made us feel very welcome and her cooked breakfast is a must have.Would definitely stay again and would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Try the loft room its just so nice
