    About this property

    Affording every comfort for an enjoyable holiday Chittering Farm is comfortably furnished and makes an excellent choice for families.
    Chittering Farm sits in the privacy of the owners’ arable farm and is accessed by a private road, and is conveniently situated between Cambridge and Ely. The house was rebuilt from an old barn and affords every comfort for an enjoyable and relaxing stay. Surrounded by open countryside the property is an excellent choice for large family get togethers or friendly reunions that require spacious accommodation. It is the ideal base to explore Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk. There are cycle routes to Cambridge and Ely easily accessed from the farm. Some guests may prefer to relax in the private 1-acre garden with its 4-acre paddocks and enjoy the facilities on-site or nearby. Guest will find an aqua park and wakeboarding located on the farm and bookable via the owner (at cost). There is also a tennis net and a large football goal in the garden, while a games room offers table tennis and a pool table. Ely Leisure village 5½ miles has swimming pools, multi-screen cinema, health club, eateries and a driving range with 9 hole golf course, and fishing is available locally. A stay here will also provide the opportunity to enjoy the rural location of the farm, with farm and river walks, bird watching and cycling. Located on the edge of the farm is the Stretham Old Engine, erected in 1831, an example of a land drainage engine.
    The city of Cambridge is 10 miles away, famous for its colleges, museums, tours and botanical gardens, where visitors can also try their hand at punting on the River Cam or enjoy a wealth of shops, cafés and restaurants. The city of Ely with markets and local shopping is 6 miles away in the other direction, steeped in history with its impressive medieval cathedral and long river frontage where you can enjoy a boat trip or riverside walk. If you fancy a trip to the beach the North Norfolk coast is less than 50 miles away, the Royal Sandringham Estate less than 40 miles, and Thetford Forest, famous for its walk and cycle routes only 35 miles away. National Trust properties can be found at nearby Wicken Fen, 5 miles, and Anglesey Abbey and gardens 13 miles. Newmarket is also 13 miles with music nights and race days, and the Imperial War Museum at Duxford is 24 miles. So there is plenty of scope if you feel like exploring the area during your stay. There is a pub within 1 mile with access through the farm and a shop in the local village of Stretham 2 miles.

    "Spotlessly clean, comfortable and restful."
    Confirmed guest ‐ 27 Oct 2018
    "Fantastic family time spent in a perfect space. Lovely house with huge kitchen table where much of the weekend was spent! Games room and facilities outside were great for the kids!!"
    Alison ‐ 20 Oct 2018
    "This was the second stay that we and our friends enjoyed at Chittering Farm. The owners are very welcoming. The sack of potatoes and fresh produce was very kind and a nice touch. The house is warm and spacious, and just right for sharing refreshments and chat around the large farmhouse table. Very well equipped inside and out. The perfect venue for our gathering of "old" friends. Would definitely recommend. A beautiful place."
    Rachel ‐ 19 Oct 2018
    "Ideal for flexible accommodation suiting a large family or friends. We had varying amounts of people staying through the week as we were there for our daughter's wedding. Lovely setting with plenty to do for the more energetic members of the family. Cosy evenings in too"
    Rosamund ‐ 18 Sep 2018
    "Beautifully presented and spacious house. Lovely garden. There were no children in our party so didn’t use many of the outdoor facilities.Only downside was the lack of signage from the main road and through the farm. Would suggest putting up at least 3 signs to make it easier to find. It would be especially difficult at night."
    Claire ‐ 12 Sep 2018
    "The house was fantastic! With 3 families, including children aged from 16 to 20, it met all of our different needs.The kitchen is spacious and well equipped. The bathrooms large and plentiful so no queues! The garden was immense - rounders and cricket were played on the Saturday evening and football on the Sunday. And best of all was the indoor pool and table tennis. Jane couldn’t have been more helpful and advised us on taking the park and ride into Cambridge on the Saturday where we enjoyed a walking tour and punting. Sunday we went into Ely - 10 minute drive away - to see the Cathedral. We will definitely be back as we didn’t have time to fit in the water sports which are literally next to the farm. A wonderful house which made our yearly get together memorable."

    "had a brilliant time"
    Louise ‐ 24 May 2018
    "Absolutely fantastic. Unforgettable weekend. Stayed with a group of eleven girls, very spacious and private. Great day out at Newmarket horse racing and an easy trip to Cambridge. Would 100% go back."
    Sara ‐ 15 May 2018
    "The house is spacious and comfortable - really good - and set in lovely grounds."
    Alex ‐ 28 Apr 2018
    "My friends and I adore Chittering Farm! We go every year for our annual 'get away from it all' weekend and it never disappoints.We've already got a date for 2019!"
    Lesley ‐ 24 Mar 2018

    Pierre ‐ 10 Mar 2018
    "Great stay and the landlords were outstanding. We had some heavy snow though we could still access the house and the house was nice and warm even tough it was snowing outside. We had a great time"
    Neil ‐ 4 Mar 2018
    "Very friendly greeting on arrival, immediately offered us a late check out on our last day as not booked on our departure day. Excellent cottage, well laid out with large fully equipped kitchen, large main lounge (2nd lounge for those that want to be anti-social !) and 6 spacious bedrooms. The table tennis and pool tables in the barn were an added bonus for us. Highly recommended."
    Lorraine ‐ 10 Feb 2018
    "We had four generations of our family all staying together - fantastic memory making times in a fabulous, spacious home."
    Igors ‐ 27 Jan 2018
    "Good place for big company. Enjoyed time spent there. Recommended!"
