Angel Cottage is recently renovated and ideally situated within Ely conservation area, just minutes from the historic market place, Cathedral and bustling Riverside area. In a development with 3 other properties it has gated parking for one car. Entrance is via the kitchen which is fully equipped with all modern appliances, including dishwasher. Downstairs is a small hallway with cloakroom off and a good sized lounge with original fireplace, dimmer lighting and Satellite TV (Sky) and free wifi. The large cosy master bedroom (double bed) is very comfortably furnished and has an original fireplace. There is also a single bedroom and a smaller room used as a dressing / storage area. Family bathroom. The landing and kitchen offer views of the Cathedral which is fabulous at night when lit up. There is a shared grassed garden with bench seating. Being so centrally located and just 10 minutes walk from Ely station, a car is not necessary to enjoy a stay. The cottage sleeps 3 but could accommodate 4 as a child's folding bed is available on request. Please contact me for further information. Note, Angel Cottage is a no smoking property.

About Janet Gill
We live in Lincolnshire. My husband grew up in a village close to Ely and his family still live in the area.
Janet Gill purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Janet Gill chose Ely
We bought Angel Cottage as our second home and spent several months bringing it back to life. We love Ely and the surrounding area. There are so many historic places to visit and so much to do and enjoy in the City itself and nearby. We hope you will find that too!
What makes this Cottage unique
We like the traditional features in the cottage, having views of the Cathedral and being so close to the City centre.

Loved the cottage and its location
We love the cottage and its location. It is well located near the centre of Ely. We used Ely to stay and visit National Trust properties in the area. Cottage is very good equipped for the stay of three people. Closeness of road induces some noise in the evening/night. Being there during the heatwave of June/July 2018 we could not open the windows in bedroom. A real bonus is the private parking at the cottage. We really enjoyed our stay. From the cottage you have very good access to shops, pubs and restaurants. Walking along the waterfront of Ely takes the stress away.
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Angel Cottage and thank you for your comments
Great Location and Accommodations
This lovely cottage is centrally located in Ely, so you can walk practically anywhere in town. Upstairs bedrooms and bath plus extra space for storage and hanging clothes. Downstairs there is a powder bath (handy for those of us with aging knees), spacious living room and well- stocked kitchen. Best windows and doors I’ve ever seen. Janet and David are gracious and accommodating hosts. Would definitely return!
Thank you for your lovely comments. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Angel Cottage.
Lovely home, very clean and tidy. Everything you need for a self sufficient stay.
Thank you for your kind comments. We hope to see you again sometime in the future
Me and my daughter loved staying at Angel Cottage. It has everything you need for a great stay. The bedrooms were perfect and I already miss the master bedroom I slept in, it's gorgeous and very comfortable!
Very good location of the cottage as well, near the riverside, shops, restaurants and the train station.
Janet is a lovely lady who made us feel welcome immediately by arrival and we very much appreciated the milk and white wine which were there for us in the fridge. Loved the books and games in the lounge. Didn't get to finish the book I was reading though, guess I have to buy it myself :)
I would definitely recommend the Cottage for a great stay in Ely.
Well equipped cottage
Very clean, well equipped cottage and a great location for visiting Ely and the Cambridgeshire area.
Delightful stay above all expectations in Ely
We had five absolutely wonderful days staying in Janet and David's Angel Cottage. They gave us a very informative tour of the house upon arrival and were very friendly and forthcoming, obviously having thought of everything that would make our stay as easy and pleasant as possible.
The whole cottage was 100% clean to the very highest standard. A 5-star hotel would have been proud. Also the whole place is very tastefully decorated in a very minimalistic fashion to please all kinds of guests. The overall impression was very intimate yet professional, and way above any expectations that we had.
The cottage is also very well equipped, all very new and up to date. The kitchen has both a microwave and a dishwasher in addition to the basics, and there is a great TV in the living room. The upstairs bathroom is a treat and the second WC downstairs is also a convenient plus.
The location of the cottage needs a mention too, just next to the Cathedral park and in short walking distance to everything. The cottage even has it's own gated parking space (which was very useful for us).
I also would like to mention that Ely itself was a great pleasure. The stunning Cathedral, of course, is the main focus of the town, but lots of lovely places to go and things to do in the daytime apart from that as well.
Thank you Janet and David for a great stay, and we would love to return to Angel Cottage whenever we stay in the Ely area again.
Thank you so much for your glowing review Karin. We are delighted you and Alex enjoyed your stay in Ely and the UK.
