The Cottage Family Cottage description

Holiday home
The Cottage is a 350 year old cottage in part of a building that was once owned by the family of Oliver Cromwell, on a 6 acre site near to Grafham Waters which is near to Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire. With three bedrooms (one double, one twin and one with bunk beds) and a family bathroom, it can sleep six people. Also within the accommodation is an open plan living area with a fitted kitchen, a dining area and a sitting room. Outside the cottage is off road parking for two cars and a garden with outdoor furniture and a barbecue. Also available on site is a children's play area and an open air heated swimming pool which is available through the summer months. With so many facilities available on site and the fabulous Cambridgeshire countryside to discover, The Cottage is a wonderful family holiday cottage all year round.

The Cambridgeshire village of Grafham is best known for its Grafham Waters, a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest which cover 1500 acres. The site is also a haven for wild life, with insects, birds, mammals and amphibians. And for those who enjoy fishing, Grafham Waters is the king of the trout reservoirs. The site also offers picnic areas, restaurants, café, and specialist sports hire and sales shops. Within easy travelling distance you will find Huntingdon, St Neots, and Cambridge, all offering many attractions to visit.

The Cottage was light and airy and furnished to a very high standard. The upside down design allowed for views over the site. The area was very peaceful and the Grafham site very well run.

A peaceful spot with excellent access to Grafham Water. A lovely place to walk in the evening and excellent facilities for walking or cycling during the day. Lots to do nearby too - particularly enjoyed Wiken Fen and Wimpole Hall (both NT). The pool was really warm and a real pleasure to swim in. Overall, a very well run and maintained site and a beautiful cottage, especially the balcony.
