About this listing

I'm back! and can now offer you a warm welcome. An airy, spacious double bedroom, or if preferred, upstairs twin bedroom, with own shower room. Also good for business visits- e.g.1:6m to the science park (CB4 0FZ) or Citi bus 2. Crisp, fresh linen and good breakfasts. Enjoy nearby trendy café, funky art gallery, relaxing floating pool; short stroll to river and green parks; bus or a pleasant walk to any of 3 bridges over the river Cam to the historic university, faculties & shopping centre.

The space

My 100 year old town house is deceptively spacious, sunny, and comfortably furnished. It overlooks a small front garden and a public green space in the front and a garden at the rear of the house. You are welcome to sit in either. The double bed comfortably sleeps two average size adults with reading lamps on either side of the bed; the room has two southwest facing windows allowing plenty of fresh air and sunshine, two (central heating) radiators for winter warmth, a desk and chair, TV and plenty of clean cupboard space. An ironing board, iron and shaving mirror are available for you to use. Freshly laundered bed linen and towels are provided free of charge. If you wish to stay for more than a few days, I can organise a wash for your clothing.

Interaction with guests

I will be present to greet you and ensure you are settled in comfortably; otherwise we shall meet as little or as much as you wish. I enjoy meeting my guests and have had many interesting conversations, in English and in Spanish.

I absolutely loved my stay at Sarah's. Everything about her place is great - location, comfy bed, spacious bedroom, and gorgeous bathroom. Breakfast was especially fantastic - a nice spread and engaging conversation. Would definitely stay again if I'm ever back in Cambridge.

We had a wonderful weekend in Sarah's beautiful home. Sarah was the perfect host: clear and communicative, and made sure we had everything that we needed during our stay. The house is located in a quiet neighbourhood just a short walk from the River Cam. The city centre is just a short 15-20 minute walk across Midsummer Common and Jesus Green. The immediate neighbourhood are also hosts some great cafes and pubs. The house itself is lovely and the room was very comfortable. We'd definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to visit this beautiful city.

The best airbnb experience yet. A true bed and breakfast experience with a comfortable bed and excellent breakfast. Sarah was awesome to talk to and super friendly. I would recommend Sarah's place to anyone and everyone!

I have stayed with Sarah several times and always have a relaxing and comfortable stay. The bed is very comfortable and the elegant bathroom is right next door - it feels like it's ensuite! The location is good for me when I am visiting family and it's pleasant walk along the river to get into the city centre. I highly recommend Sarah's airbnb.

Our time at Sarah's house was absolutely perfect. She was a kind and welcoming host. The room is just a few minutes away from the centre of the town but at the same time was perfectly quiet.
