    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.

    "Great venue for our family celebration. Owners friendly and very helpful."
    Ruth ‐ 15 Sep 2019
    "A perfect place for a family celebration. The welcome was warm (we particularly liked the half a sack of potatoes and packs of celery from the farm - nice touch!). It was quite novel being deep inside an active agriculture area. However we were still within reasonable reach of a pub and convenience store. The house was very spacious. The enormous kitchen was definitely the heart of the home. The range cooker was out of this world. The only drawback was that there were issues with the water pressure that were outside the hosts' control - but they compensated us for that. Could do with just a little more cutlery I think. Otherwise - spot on! A memorable time."

    "Chittering Farm is perfect for groups of family or friends meeting up. The bedrooms are all comfortable. There is plenty of space including two lounges with Sky TV, a large dining table and kitchen and lots of bathrooms and hot water. Outside gives plenty of space two with a variety of activities including a trampoline and lots of sports possibilities like tennis, table tennis and pool."

    "We had a great time as a family party. House was very suitable and comfortable. We found it very spacious for dining outside with large table,umbrella and plenty of chairs. Have to mention the new bathroom/showers that have been added since last year. Really excellent. We were very impressed."

    "A lovely place to stay with Greta facilities."
    Anna ‐ 5 Jun 2019
    "Everything was great - 10 people - 2 grandparents, 4 parents and 4 children (10-14) and Max the dog - everyone loved it! There was something for everyone - lots of space, huge garden, BBQ, pool, table tennis, trampoline and the ubiquitous goal! Thank you for a great family get together!"
    Jenny ‐ 2 Apr 2019
    "Absolutely fantastic stay, we booked a weekend for my friend's Hen do. The house is beautiful and clean, with everything you need. The owners were so helpful and accommodating, we would really recommend staying here!!!"
    Alex ‐ 31 Mar 2019
    "My friends and I spend a long weekend here every year, and never tire of the house and hospitality we receive from owners Ian and Jane. 2020 has already been booked!"
    Chris ‐ 29 Jan 2019
    "It totally suited our family group. Everything was as described. A little remote but that somehow added to the enjoyment but wouldn’t be for everyoneTop quality bedding and towels are always welcomed but not always provided. The owners seem to appreciate that these things and other touches are important. We had a great break in a lovely cottage."
    Bridget ‐ 12 Dec 2018
    "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."
