Cheryl the owner and operator of this charming accomodation is rightly proud of her accomodation. Ye Olde Globe and Chequers is located in a very pleasant and quiet village. However it is not at all isolated, offering quick access to Huntingdon and Spaldwick and close to but not affected by the A1 and A14.
I stayed one nght in one of the barn converted ensuite rooms. My room was spacious and well equipped. It wasn't airconditioned but had the benefit of a large and efficient fan. The Bathroom was large and equipped with a power shower and bath. there were no shortage of clean, quality towels.
The room was tastefully and pleasantly decorated, with a great selection of branded beverages available. There was a fridge located just outside my room where cold drinks and snacks could be stored, a handy addition given the current heatwave conditions.
Breakfast was served in the main old house around a very large dining table, I chose the full English, it was freshly cooked and very tasty; preceeded by a good selection of breakfast cereals and muesli. Fresh coffee and Tea was served to order and the toast was accompanied by a choice of local Honey and preserves.
Cheryl was always on hand for a chat but gave the guest an appropriate amount of space. In fact the perfect host.
Would I recommend a stay and would I stay again? Yes absolutely Cheryls place would be an Ideal base for a quiet weekend for couples or a business stay.
