The space

Its close by my home but very discrete - guests benefit from access to small in house laundry and shower and Wc facilities. In the late autumn and early spring right through the summer a lovely separate garden area to relax in, have some barb qs and extend your own hospitality.

This is an ideal solution for those wanting some really inexpensive space to think, regroup or plan a relocate -all essential creature comforts supplied plus some extra storage (in a container on site) for you if you are having to make a move in a hurry and need a few weeks grace to sort your options out. Be in contact to see how I can assist you in your thinking and relocation options.

For those of you who like to off road run on ancient pathways, there is the main Roman Road to the Gog Magog's just half a kilometre away from the back gate - off road running all the way to the outskirts of Cambridge for the fitness buffs amongst you

Guest access

You have access to a shower / wc (private) and broadband in the main house with GREAT 4 G supply by EE in the van itself. Washing machine is at your disposal in the main house 30 yards up the garden. You enjoy full independence in the van with your own cooker, grill and gas oven. A Comfy double bed with memory foam topper pretty much guarantees a wonderful nights sleep, with the quiet of the Cambridgeshire countryside all around you. Electric heater is there with full electrics in the van, when outside is a little cooler.

Outside chairs and breakfast table in the half awning which can open up as a canopy when the weather is fine and inviting. Safe off road parking for your car/van in our spacious. Rent of a car if needed - small sportsKA with fold down roof - great fun in the summer for a sportsy tour of East Anglia and its stately homes and fantastic coastline.

Interaction with guests

Once a day at least if desired or once a week depending on desire of our guests. Main house on site 30 yards away! Chickens and mother cat and two adorable young kittens share the spacious garden with you.

Other things to note

This is an exceptional space where guests can really relax and enjoy some time to relax and refresh. Exceptional for those who like being out in the countryside but also super close to city and work zones -Granta park Babraham, Genome Centre etc and Cambridge Science Park

This airbnb has great ambience, and is accurately described as a perfect spot for relaxing and enjoying peaceful space. It is a 15 min walk to the bus to Cambridge, with road traffic noticeable in the mornings and afternoons, but the feel of the farm is appealingly remote. There are views of the surrounding fields during the day and cross country walks nearby. The garden the caravan looks onto is private, a good distance from the house and lovely to wake up to. Amenities are supplied to make meals in the caravan, with a small stove & grill, a kettle, and a small fridge and freezer. A bathroom and TV room are available on one side of the house. Plenty of storage room is available. Josie and her lodger did everything possible to provide a pleasant, comfortable stay, including stocking the caravan with orange juice, bacon, bread, tea, coffee and milk for my arrival. Communication was great. I really enjoyed staying here, and would recommend it.

Josie is a great host - made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Caravan is as described and in a really nice location on the property. There were two of us staying for a month and we were perfectly happy and comfortable.

We have received warm welcome from Josie on her place and she provides all what we need for a pleasure stay. Perhaps even more than that :-) The place looks exactly as described, lovely place far enough from the city noise, clean and well prepared, including some breakfast and bananas for our small daughter. If we have an opportunity to come again to this location, we know already our choice!

We were welcomed with a smile and various consumable goodies, the location was perfect and picturesque. A close walk to the nearest convenience stores in one direction and a local pub the other. Cambridge was a ten minute drive and close to many other attractions. The caravan was perfect, you are self contained with a home from home feel. Josie was always happy to assist in any items needed for cooking etc. Great for a break away for a bit of relaxation, visiting Cambridge and it's surrounding towns and villages or if you are working in the area. Would certainly return!

An Academic working in consultancy - I mainly work from home but the house is a very comfortable space for me to be able to share still giving guests their own space to relax and unwind in as well as being able to share my hospitality and my deep knowledge of the architectural, landscape and culinary riches of Cambridge in which I am so happy and privileged to be a part. I look forward to meeting you and enabling you to have a really wonderful stay in Cambridge whether as a proud parent of a graduate, a student looking to undertake future studies of your own, a tourist looking to have a brief well placed stay in this wonderful University city, or someone undertaking business here and setting up your first relationships with this exciting centre for commerce and culture. You are so welcome.
