Reviewed 9 May 2014

This lovely B & B set close to the M11 and very close to Cambridge was excellent. Comfortable well appointed rooms a splendid loungs and delightful breakfast room/conservatory where you could enjoy the local birds as they alighted on the bird feeder. We were very lucky with the weather but it would have been a splendid venue regardless with so much to do in the vicinity. National Trust properties, waterways to explore and obviously the attractions of Cambrige all within easy reach. Do yourself a favour and book a night or two here.

Beautiful bed and breakfast! The room was clean and very inviting, with fresh cakes on arrival and every day when we got back from our days out. The breakfast was delicious with lots of choice, including a special each day. I can definitely recommend the tomato and mushroom omelette with bacon on the side! Alyson was extremely welcoming and informative with regards to places to visit. We will most certainly be back!

We recently stayed three nights here on a long weekend break to Cambridge. As with all previous reviews we have nothing but praise for Alyson and her hospitality. Our room, the Garden View room, was clean and tidy with a very comfortable bed and an excellent ensuite shower room. We had everything we needed and even a few things we didn't but enjoyed......Alyson spoiled us, as other guests, with a homemade treat each day of cake and even one day, cream profiteroles instead of the usual wrapped biscuits for catering......a very nice surprise indeed and very much enjoyed! Breakfast always started with fresh fruit and yoghurt, cerals and juice followed with numerous choices for the full works English or variations of other hot breakfast choices. There was always a 'special' on offer each morning too if preferred. The location was perfect allowing us access to all we wanted to do either on foot, to the pub in the village or walking a dedicated footpath to Cambridge, or by car to other local places of interest. The National Trust property - the Wimpole Estate - is nearby and well worth a visit. Both Alyson and her husband, Vernon were lovely to chat with and we did enjoy our conversations with them. Alyson also gave us several suggestions of things to do while visiting and provided not only maps to guide our walking but also a flashlight to ensure we got back safely from our all day walk into Cambridge and then back long after the sun set and the moon came out. We very much enjoyed our visit to Cambridge and our stay in Coton and would definitely recommend Harvest View to anyone looking for a quiet country retreat with great hospitality. Thanks, Alyson! We hope to visit again in the future.

We stayed for two nights and could not have been happier. The location is incredibly convenient being only a few minutes drive from the park and ride which is an important attribute when visiting Cambridge, a pleasant walk in to the city is also an option. The accommodation is excellent; clean, comfortable and well laid out. Breakfasts were lovely and set us up for the day with plenty of choice and a daily 'special'. A particularly nice touch was the home baked cupcakes/biscuits in the room every evening. The owner is friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about the city and local attractions. All in all, a perfect place to stay.

We stayed for 2 nights recently and have to agree with all the other reviews - great host, location , clean and comfortable rooms. Park & ride into town on the doorstep and a decent enough pub in the village if you don't want to go into town in the evening

I stayed 2 nights for a business trip. The location was ideal in more than one way. Foremost it was very convenient as it was only about 2 miles from where I needed to be for work. Walking, weather permitting was definitely an option and there is a very good footpath with footbridge crossing the M11 into Cambridge. As the B&B is located in the country side it is very quiet and relaxing. The bedrooms are very well appointed and kept very clean. Coffee and tea facilities are included with a very nice personal touch of home baked cookies welcoming the guests. In addition there is a large comfortable lounge at the disposal to guests which included a large flat screen TV. The breakfast, served in the orangery, is superb and includes freshly cut fruit as well as Greek style creamy thick yogurt. It definitely is a place I will return to, if business or pleasure for that matter takes me back to Cambridge. A perfect place to be comfortable, relax in peace and quiet after a long hectic day. And while in the country, still on the doorstep of Cambridge.

We have stayed here twice now and I can thoroughly recommend it. Harvest View is in a lovely quiet location, yet with quick and easy access to Cambridge. The accommodation is warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Alyson is very friendly and welcoming and always happy to provide local information when needed. The breakfasts are extremely good and we really appreciated the home-made cakes waiting in our room when we returned in the evening. Outstanding!
