The Little Cottage was warm, cosy and well equipped. The location was ideal with plenty of space to walk our dogs. It was also within easy reach of Ely which is an interesting city. The owner was very nice and friendly.

The cottage was a lovely retreat to relax in, it was well equipped and clean. The owners respected privacy but it was good to know they were close by if needed.

The cottage was lovely, with all the facilities you would want.

A delightful little cottage that is well placed for exploring The Fens. Ely, a little town with a huge and magnificent cathedral and lovely riverside, is close by and there is loads to do and see and lots of good places to eat. The owners, who live next door, were very welcoming and helpful.

We found this property the perfect getaway; we enjoyed the location and the extra mile the owners went to help us relax. We all said it was the top of our list of best places we have stopped and we said we would love to have stopped longer. Such a cosy cottage that anyone would love.

We needed somewhere that was quiet and relaxing, this cottage fitted the requirements exactly. A lovely clean and spacious property, offering very good facilities. It was well situated allowing us a central hub from where we were able to explore more of the interesting area.

The location was great, near the wetlands for birdwatching and the barn owls were amazing! The enclosed garden was fantastic for the dogs and we could let them play outside for a while each day knowing they couldn't escape.

It was relaxing and the accommodation was warm and comfortable after our day trips sightseeing. I would recommend the cottage to my family and friends. In fact I hope to stay there again myself.

The Little Cottage was comfortable and warm, water was hot and it had a slow cooker which we used. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean. Very pretty lights around the cottage , made it cosy. Excellent for bird watching at WWT Welney. Lots of swans and owls and ducks. Local pub the Lamb and Flag served wonderful food and was very friendly.

The cottage was very snug and the heating very efficient when needed. The owners left us eggs from their own hens and milk and a bottle of wine which was a lovely thought. Also, when the TV went wrong, we had a replacement the same day!

The cottage was always warm and welcoming and we could walk our dog from the property without taking the car. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - thank you!
Mrs Warner
September 2014
This was a lovely cottage in an interesting location. we would happily stay there again. There was a welcome bottle of wine, flowers and free range eggs-a nice touch. We were blessed with good weather but the cottage would have been very relaxing and cosy on a bad day.

Amazingly high quality Cottage and garden - the picture does not do it justice. Close to important bird sanctuary and not far to Ely and Cambridge.
Mrs McKenzie

Lovely clean quaint little cottage perfect for a small family or couple with dogs. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. It is very well equipped, looked after and one of , if not the best, cottages we have rented.

We had an excellent week. The setting is delightful. The owners are very welcoming , friendly and helpful. The cottage was spotlessly clean and bright. Walking dogs away from roads was very accessible. It would have been difficult to have been better.
Mrs Wragg

I have stayed at the Little Cottage many times now and it suits me excellently. It is absolutely spotlessly clean, the beds are blissfully comfortable and the whole surroundings are so peaceful. It is beautifully warm and cosy on a cold day. Also the owners are extremely helpful but not in anyway interfering.
Mrs Cartwright

The owners were super, we were welcomed with fresh eggs from their hens and in the fridge was milk and a bottle of wine, much appreciated by us. The owners couldn't have been kinder, and especially dog friendly. The cottage is an absolute delight, beautifully clean and homely.

The cottage was just the right blend of quaint and modern fittings and comforts. The owners were very friendly and considerate. All-in-all a great area to see and a great cottage to see it from!

Little cottage, was so cosy and warm when we arrived, and we were welcomed by the owner who had the cottage lovely and warm with the lights on. A very enjoyable break, and would recommend to all our friends.

The Little cottage was warm and welcoming on a damp, miserable evening when we arrived. The cottage was spotless and little touches like fresh eggs from the owners chickens and a bottle of wine were lovely.
