“Wonderful Friendly and Helpful B&B”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Siobhan and Ian were extremely friendly and welcoming. I had a little difficulty reaching the farm and they went out of their way with suggestions & hand-drawn maps for dinner as well as a hand-drawn map for getting to Heathrow the next morning. The room was beautiful, the house and surrounding area was relaxing. This was my last night in the UK after 3 weeks for traveling around England and Scotland and I really enjoyed the relaxation. I will return to Knapwell Wood Farm in the future and would suggest it to anyone of my friends in San Diego.

This was our second stay, and we were met on arrival by Siobhan and a very welcome tray of tea and biscuits. The B&B is spotlessly clean, comfortable, and beautiful inside the house and outside in the extensive garden. It is quiet and in the countryside, but well-situated for getting into Cambridge. We will certainly come again. And thank you, Siobhan, for the beautiful plums from your orchard!

We stayed at Knapwell Wood Farm for 2 nights in Sept. Arriving from the airport tired and hungry we arrived a bit earlier than we had wanted and were about to turn around when Sioban saw us and insisted that we sit in the garden and she would bring us some tea and breakfast. She let us have our rooms earlier so we were able to freshen up and spend the day in Cambridge. Great hosts, great breakfasts, great room, quiet location. Everything was perfect!!

We chose this B & B because of its ratings and it did not disappoint. Huge bedrooms, great bathroom, spotlessly clean and as good a breakfast as you could wish for. The beautiful old farmhouse is tastefully decorated and full of character and you have the run of the extensive grounds. Siobhan and Ian made us feel at home and even offered to let us take fruit home from their apple and plum trees. Siobhan gave us a list of good restaurants nearby for an evening meal. Travelling into Cambridge, to see number 2 son, was easy from the farm. A very relaxing and enjoyable 2 night stay.

Over the course of the last several years, my wife and I have made a number of trips to the Cambridge area in order to see relatives. Initially, we had difficulty finding accommodation that we liked. That problem disappeared when we found Knapwell Wood Farm, where we have stayed several times. The location is ideal: Close to Cambridge but far enough outside to be quiet and yet easy to access. Siobhan and Ian have always treated us like family and gone far above the call of duty in making us comfortable and solving any problems we may have. We have stayed in three of the four rooms and enjoyed them all. The breakfasts are excellent - the only problem is saying “No” to avoid overeating. This is undoubtedly one of the best Bed and Breakfasts that we have stayed in, world-wide. It always feels like coming home.

Me and my family (2 small kids) stayed for the week-end in this B&B. We liked the rooms very much, a perfect mixture between modern and vintage style. Very clean.
Breakfast is open to your own taste: English, Cereals, Fruits, whatever you wish for...
Also very stylish environment.
The gardens are wonderful. Wish to come back in summer to have breakfast outside at the pond. The kids were happy with cats and dog.
And not to forget the hosts: very nice and helpful. We hope to see you again!!!

Ursula, It was good to welcome your family to our Bed & Breakfast. Ian & I are glad the children enjoyed playing with the cats and dog in our gardens. (No animals in the bedrooms though!!) We look forward to welcoming you back in the summer months so you can have your breakfast by the pond. Thank you for your review.

My husband, son and I stayed for 2 nights pre and post our eldest son's wedding in nearby Childerley. From the moment we arrived - welcomed with a refreshing tray of tea and biscuits - we felt relaxed and calm, thanks largely to the tranquil setting and beautiful house. Our hosts were attentive, rooms were spotless with soft linens and large beds making for a good nights sleep. The breakfasts were perfectly cooked and well presented. We arrived stressed and left relaxed - what more could we ask?
