The East Anglia region

Welcome to the historic city of Ely, full of charm and beauty and home to one of the most magnificent cathedrals in England.

Nestled in the Fen countryside, this small city in East Cambridgeshire is your ideal day visit or short break location. Whether it is a tranquil, peaceful retreat you are looking for or an inspiring, invigorating visit then the bustling city of Ely surrounded by dramatic countryside has it all.


As well as the Cathedral Ely also offers Oliver Cromwell's House which is also the tourist information center, Waterside Antiques, the biggest in East Anglia, the Ely museum, the stained glass museum and the Babylon Gallery.

Ely has the major tourist locations of Cambridge and Newmarket on its doorstep at the same time as being only an hour away from London by rail and only two hours away from the Norfolk Coast by car. Not forgetting of course the numerous small villages and towns in between that each have their own individual characteristics to offer. Therefore, Ely and The Hoist makes for an ideal base for exploring the area.

"Fantastic house / Fantastic location"

My husband, Mum and I stayed at 5 The Hoist for 4 nights. The house was sparkling and clean with every facility you could possibly want. The location is right in the centre of Ely, just a few minutes … More

"Great cottage in a wonderful location."

The cottage was great from the start, it was lovely to get the welcome pack milk, juice & biscuits. It was clean, tidy and with no unnecessary nik naks for the kids to mess with! The cottage was in a wonderful location, right in the centre of Ely, but just tucked away enough not to feel on top of things.
The only issue for us was the parking as we have a Landrover that didn't fit into the parking bay. But the lovely neighbour let us park over the bay & his bay so we didn't have to leave the car somewhere else. This would not stop us returning though as it really was a lovely cottage.

We lived here for three weeks and loved every moment. Seemed like home to us and the owners had thought of everything. The best thing was how clean it was, such a treat. Very central and in a beautiful town full of interesting little shops and the wonderful cathederal.

"This apartment is amazing - we loved our stay!"

Me and my mum stayed here on 4th October 2013, the day before my wedding. The owner emailed me all the details to the apartment, the check in and out times and key codes a couple of days before our stay, along with some very helpful tips on where to park (if you have more than one car coming to the apartment). The apartment is absolutely gorgeous and a perfect size. The apartment is SO clean and tidy. My mum and I were both extremely comfortable here and loved our stay. The beds are very comfy! When we were arrived I was greeted with a lovely card and a bottle of bubbly from the owner AJ, as he was aware it was my wedding day the following day. This was very thoughtful of him and it was much appreciated.

I'm sure if you stay here you will love it too!

"Fabulous apartment, in wonderful quiet but central location"

Having stayed at the Hoist in late January, I wanted to convey what a lovely and comfortable apartment this is. Always unsure how warm and well equipped a rental property may be I went armed with hot water bottle and the usual basic kitchen necessities, both not needed, the kitchen was well stocked with tea coffee milk juice and a lovely lemon cake, and all the condiments I could use. The lounge is cosy with great furniture as is the rest of the property. With so much thought given to the extras provided it is almost home from home. Having parking on site is a real bonus, but with the market square 2minutes away and the river just 5mins walk the car is not really needed. With out doubt I will return for a further long weekend as the whole trip was inexpensive and a real pleasure.

"Clean, comfortable, well-equipped apartment"

A warm, clean and comfortable apartment in the centre of Ely. Everything we needed and more was thoughtfully provided. So good to be close to the town, cathedral, market and river; everything in easy walking distance. A lovely place to stay. We hope to return.
