About the property

Spacious bungalow with lovely garden, set in a small Cambridgeshire village in walking distance of shop & pub.

"The Cottage" is a spacious bungalow sat in the the grounds of our house on the edge of the village. Secluded and peaceful it is the ideal place for a break. It benefits from being close to a shop and pubs serving good food while maintaining a very rural setting. Offering a high standard of accommodation for families and couples alike. The large living room allows space for everyone whatever the weather while the lovely garden offers a real sense of being in the countryside, you might even be lucky and get a visit from one of the local Muntjac Deers! The historic city of Cambridge is only 17mls away and the beautiful Ely cathedral is 15mls. There are many nature and bird reserves locally and easy access to the river for those who enjoy spending time on the water. A picnic bag is available for those planning a day out and the property benefits from free wifi/internet connection.

About Mrs Lyn Smith

My husband and I have lived in Cambridgeshire for many years and brought up our family here. We moved to our present home in 2006 after falling in love with it. The setting is just lovely and still puts a smile on our faces every time we enter the drive. We hope you will enjoy spending time here as much as we do!

Mrs Lyn Smith purchased this bungalow in 2006

Why Mrs Lyn Smith chose Huntingdonshire

We love the fact that it is within a village with a shop and pubs and has easy access to the local town and Cambridge while still having a very rural and peaceful setting.
