I had organised a short holiday in Cambridge and booked a place called Brooklands Guest House. We arrived on the Monday midday. That guest house proved to be worse than a flea pit in terrible decorative order. I don't know how they can still be in business.
Quickly looking on line, we discovered a local place called Anstey Hall. Primerily, it is a wedding and events venu but luckily for us, Anstey Hall had just opened it's doors to guests during the week. Unfortunately for us, they could only accommodate us until the Friday because of a wedding AND a corporate event. When we pulled up at the Grade I listed building in the charming village of Trumpington, John de Bruyne and his son met us on the stairs. They greeted us warmly and carried our cases inside. The interior is charming and very interesting. We were shown to our rooms after being shown over the house and all it's visitors rooms and bedrooms. As we were the only ones staying at that exact moment, he kindly gave us The Best Room, The Bridal Suit. We had a grand view from our first floor balcony overlooking the back lawns.
Breakfast consisted of a very good Continental spread> We lacked for nothing and the quality of the food was second to none. Anstey Hall proved to be a charming, welcoming and fantastic value venue for our party of six and was a brilliant base from which to explore Cambridge and the surrounding district. We loved every second of our stay and would have no hesitation in recommending this quirky, boutique sumptuous house to stay in and be charmed by Mr. John de Bruyne, his delightful daughter Abigail, happy son John Jr, the beautiful Tracey, and Karol and co-workers. We loved them all
Thank you all with absolute sincerity for making our break one to remember for all the right reasons.
We hope to return in the very near future.
