Located in Cambridgeshire with many things to see and do locally, this is the perfect bolthole for a couple looking to get away and celebrate any occasion.

The cottage is nestled within the peaceful village of Barrington which has a lovely pub on the green and a village shop. There is a train station in Shepreth, just 1 mile away, with direct links into both central Cambridge and London, so you are well-placed to enjoy the very best of Cambridgeshire and beyond. Audley End House which hosts shows and open-air concerts throughout the year is within easy reach, as is the National Trust’s Wimpole Hall. There is a local wildlife park featuring a variety of animals including tigers (1 mile) and for lovers of history, the Imperial War Museum at Duxford (7 miles) is highly recommended with its regular air displays throughout the year.

A fantastic property within easy reach of attractions south west of Cambridge. We visited Duxford, Wimpole Hall, Shepreth Wildlife Park, Grantchester and took the park & Ride into Cambridge whilst staying there. There is plenty of room in the converted stable and it is well kitted out with cooking equipment. The shower was amazing. Would stay here Read moreagain if I were to holiday in this location. The village of Barrington is like a chocolate box with thatched cottages around an enormous village green Hide

American War Memorial, IWM, punting on the Cam and Botanical Gardens, Cambridge, walk round Wicken Fens, Wimpole Hall and gaRead morerdens, Ely Cathedral and a little further but worth the trip, Afternoon tea at Sandringham. Would highly recommend and definitely stay again. Hide
