About the property

Quiet, spacious Victorian cottage. 1 ensuite bedroom, sleeps 4, close to centre

The Space

The Coach House is a beautifully refurbished Victorian property that combines period features with modern convenience. Located in the historic city of Cambridge, the Coach House sits opposite the River Cam and Jesus Green, has its own small driveway and is just a short walk from the city centre.

The Coach House has the flexibility to be ideal for a variety of guests: as a self-catering property close to the city centre (all bathroom and kitchen essentials provided - NB there is no freezer), it is perfect for families and couples, whether on holiday, or attending a wedding, graduation ceremony or university open day.

It is also suitable for those who are in Cambridge on business, looking for more independence during their stay in a homely environment: wifi is available throughout the property, and there is a printer available for use and a desk, overlooking the internal courtyard.

The main living area of this Victorian building has a stunning raised ceiling, with extraordinary period details around the high-level windows that help to create a bright, airy space. There is a large dining table seating up to 10 people; a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom that has both a bath and shower; and a fully furnished kitchen. It can sleep 4 using the double bed and the futon sofa bed.

Kindly note that the bathroom is only accessible from the main bedroom, so any groups making use of the futon sofa need to be good friends!

Whether in Cambridge for leisure or business, the Coach House provides a comfortable base, with armchairs, a sofa, television and shelves stocked with a wide range of DVDs.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Coach House.

Guest Access

Guests can access the driveway (for on-site parking), the courtyard and everything inside the cottage. A home from home!

Interaction with Guests

Guests are free to get in touch at any point during their stay, and we’ll do our best to help.

Located just opposite Jesus Green, the Coach House is a lovely 10 minute walk by the River Cam into the city centre. Cambridge itself is famed for its University and the colleges that are its embodiment. No visit is complete without a peek at the stunning chapel at King’s College, and there are museums, shops, theatres, cinemas, cafés & restaurants aplenty!

Further afield, you’ll find the beautiful village of Grantchester made famous by poets Lord Byron and Rupert Brooke (within walking distance from the city and ideal for a cream tea in The Orchard Tea Garden!) And if you feel the urge for a trip to the capital (or need to attend a meeting), direct trains run every half an hour to London and will have you there in 45 minutes.

We love Cambridge, and we’re sure you will too – we’re always happy to provide you with information about the local area, and our house manual contains lots of useful information so that you can make the most out of your stay at the Coach House.

Good Location

  • 4 of 5

We had no trouble finding the property which was warm and clean on arrival.

The location is great, just a 5 minute or so walk across Jesus Green to the town centre.

We chose this property because it had a car parking space which is essential in Cambridge as most of the parking is for residents only.

Just two hiccups - the bed is a pull down Double (hubbies feet dangled over the end) with a lumpy mattress, so I hope that this is addressed by the new owners asap.

Other tradesmen and cleaners use the parking area, so we were blocked in or couldn't gain entry 3 days out of 4, however generally we found the person blocking and were able to gain access relatively quickly.

Dealing with Sue was a pleasure, she responds very quickly.

This place is wonderful for a couple's get-away, with plenty of amenities and fantastic service from Dominika! I would book here again when visiting Cambridge and highly recommend it to others.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

As shown in the photos, wonderful calm, clean little coach house . Nice walk to town centre. Food shops, cafe and pub nearby.

Good correspondence with owner. Comfy bed. Great place for couple or can put another person up on the futon in front room.

Bit of a walk from the train station so if don't like walking take transit. There is parking for a car.

Good experience at Coach House, Cambridge

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Coach House near the city center in Cambridge was definitely a good experience.

The property is spacious with a nice bedroom and bath. The kitchen is well equipped and the

Cottage maintains wi-fi internet service. It is located across from Jesus Green (a large city park)

and a 15 to 20 minute stroll to Cambridge University, colleges and museums. There are local restaurants

near the cottage as well as many opportunities for meals in town. The property manager (Dominika) was

available during our stay and was incredibly helpful, cheerful and caring. I would highly recommend this

Property to any traveler.
