cambridge get together
A lovely property in a great position to visit cambridge and surrounding areas. Elise, the owner ,marvellous .
Thank you Vicki for your kind review and apologies for the delay in responding. I hope you and your family remain well after the strange lockdown we have all faced and that we have the chance to welcome you again in better times. Kind regards. Elise.
Fantastic property in a great location
We stayed for a weekend at the end of January, and could not fault this property. The owners were more than accommodating allowing us to check in early & check out late. The property is immaculately decorated in a modern theme & extremely well equipped. The owners have really gone the extra mile and thought of everything and not just provided the essentials, I was pleasantly surprised to find things like shower caps, slippers, shampoo etc. The location is a stones throw from two pubs & the village has a lovely wine bar. Also just 4 miles from Cambridge (£10 in a cab). We thoroughly enjoyed our girlie weekend and would recommend this property to anyone.
Thank you for your lovely review Michelle. I am so glad you enjoyed your weekend before the crazy world of lockdown descended on us all. I do hope you and your family remain well and that we see you again in the future. Kind regards Elise.

We have lived in Great Shelford since 2001 and live very close to this holiday rental. We work from home so are usually around to help guests with any queries. We really want you to enjoy the house and the area and leave feeling pampered and refreshed after your stay.
Why Elise chose Great Shelford
We love our Old Pound Yard house. Although in the centre of this busy village it is set back from the road and is a peaceful, calm sanctuary. Prior to refurbishing the house completely as a holiday home, we rented it as a long term let and our previous tenants all fell in love with its space and tranquility.
What makes this House unique
Old Pound Yard is walking distance to local supermarkets, pubs, a station, bus stops, restaurants, a park and recreation ground, an award winning Deli Bistro, bakery, butchers, chemist and library - to name but a few local amenities. The house has private off road parking for up to 3 cars, right outside the front door. There is a lovely walled garden and french doors from the living room and dining room onto the patio. Another unique factor is the artwork around the house which is all painted by local artist Astrig Akseralian, Elise's sister - and if anything grabs your attention all the paintings are available for sale !
