  • We guarantee you the best price

    Our cottages are professionally managed by our partners and payments are taken by them, but rest assured, by booking via Snaptrip you'll pay the lowest possible price for your trip.

    We never charge you more than you would pay booking directly on the partner's site and if you become a Snaptrip member you can save even more. If you find a property priced lower anywhere else on the internet (we’d be amazed if you do), simply email us at marketing@snaptrip.com and we'll refund you the difference.

    "The mattesses in all bedrooms need replacing, they are very worn and therefore uncomfortable. The plug in the upstairs washbasin didnt fit, so couldn't fill the basin, Other than that the cottage was very nice x"

    "Lovely cottage in a lovely setting. Owners very friendly and there to help. Would recommend highly"
    Susan ‐ 23 Jun 2018
    "The cottage has huge potential but needs a lot of refurbishment to get it up to standard. Beds were clean but uncomfortable. There were only 6 usable dining chairs as 3 were dangerously broken. The lead to the dvd player was missing . There was mould and peeling paint in the bathrooms. The upstairs windows were dirty and ill fitting. The carpet was soiled. The cottage backs onto the farmyard of a beef farm with an open cattle shed directly behind the property so inevitably there were flies.There were holes in the plaster and unrepaired cracks.The location is great for Duxford, Wimpole Hall and Cambridge . There was plenty of kitchen equipment and constant hot water."

    "Ideal location for local attractions and visiting Cambridge."
