We ask simply that our guests are quiet when arriving, leaving or staying in the house and garden, to ensure that other guests have a peaceful stay. I'm afraid we cannot accommodate pets. Smokers are welcome to smoke in the outside areas.

Janet's charming and comfortable home, set aback from the road and surrounded by a large, treed garden, was very welcome after a flight and drive from Luton. Janet has a flare for the smallest detail and went out of her way to recommend a restaurant and even make a reservation for me, and the next morning whipped up a lovely hot breakfast. I can't recommend her BnB enough for anyone visiting the area, or heading to the IWM just down the road.

Janet's home is gorgeous and well maintained. The bed and bedding provided the best night sleep we had in our entire trip. The breakfast was delicious. She was very good to us and we could not be happier with our stay. The opportunity to visit with other guests was very much appreciated.

We had a wonderful stay in Janet's home. We stayed for a wedding nearby in Cambridge. I was able to get the train back in the morning from whittlesford parkway which is only a 5-10 minute walk away. Janet was a very kind and organised host and the breakfast was delicious!

Janet was a fantastic host and we had a really relaxing couple of days in her wonderful home. Location is great as there is a train station only five minutes away to Cambridge (8 mins) or London. Also went to a beautiful pub in the next village and had a great evening meal in a wonderful setting. I would highly recommend this place for a relaxing few days away.

This is one of the best air bnb's that we have stayed in. Janet and Simon were such wonderful hosts and they truly have an idyllic home. Breakfast was wonderful and it was the perfect place to stay with our 11 month old daughter - they couldn't do enough for her. She loved the garden, watching the fish in the large pond and seeing the chickens. If you are in duxford or even Cambridge stay here!

Hi, I used to work as a cookery book publisher and now run a bed and breakfast business. I have been married to Simon for over 30 years and we have 2 grown up children. I enjoy cooking, reading and socialising with our friends. We have lived in this house since 1983, it is a large house, so we had always thought that one day we would ruonce the children had left home. We started in early 2012 and have met some great people. I enjoy it enormously and I look forward to welcoming new guests.
