The Cambridgeshire region

East Anglia's mild climate means it is sunnier and dryer than any other area in Britain, and makes it an ideal location for holidaying. It is characterised by farmland plains, rolling hills, fens and waterways. The Fens, crisscrossed by waterways, are unique in the British isles and provide a wonderful habitat for wildlife.

Inhabited since ancient times, both fenland and rolling farmland are rich in history, abounding with castles, cathedrals and country houses, and its well-preserved old villages with innumerable thatched cottages are rightly famous. In more modern times, East Anglia was home to US Army Air Force and RAF air bases in the Second World War, and is still home to the Queen and the royal family at Sandringham.


The local area is rich in history. Close to Hilton is the picturesque market town of St Ives, home to Oliver Cromwell and nearby is the university town of Cambridge with its beautiful colleges and museums and opportunities for punting and shopping.

The magnificent cathedrals of Peterborough and Ely are within easy reach, and there are numerous historic properties in the area such as Anglesey Abbey, Wimpole Hall, Houghton mill and Audley End. Visit Duxford Air museum or the peace of the American military Cemetery at Madingley. Flag Fen reveals the remarkable 3,500 year old Fen Causeway, while Bletchley Park was home to the Enigma codebreakers of World War Two.

Visit the wild life sanctuaries of Welney and Paxton Pits, or the conservation zoos at Hammerton and Linton.

There are plenty of activities locally to engage all ages of visitors, from walking, horse racing or riding, cycling or sailing, to boat trips around the waterways or punting from Cambridge to Rupert Brookes' Orchard Tea Rooms at Grantchester.

"Excellent stay"

This was the perfect place for us to stay while visiting our many relatives in the area and attending a wedding. It is welcoming, well equipped and very comfortable. Well positioned between the A14 an… More

Thanks so much for a great review. We're really glad you had a good stay and a lovely wedding!

"Great stay, cozy place..."

We were paasing through the Cambridge area on our month long trip to UK. Hilton was just enough out of the city to be handy - yet quiet. Clare was a wonderful hostess, made sure we had everything we… More

Thanks very much, we're really glad you had such a comfortable stay, and sorry that the White Barn was a little difficult to find. We do send out directions, but will endeavour to add a map in future. The Barn is opposite the Methodist Chapel, so is usually easy to spot.

"A lovely quiet, well equiped comfortable place to relax in and enjoy."

The White barn is a lovely comfortable apartment with every thing you require for a short or extended stay. I stayed for just over two weeks and found it an ideal base to tour the surrounding countrys… More

I'm really glad your stay went so well. The Barn is really well situated for touring the area, and there's now the Guided Bus for getting into Cambridge quickly and easily, as well as the very efficient Park and Ride. There are multi story car parks in Cambridge so you can drive in if you want to, but these are really good options for avoiding traffic and parking so that you can have as long as you want looking round the city.

"A good value stay to explore Cambridge"

The owner Claire was very accommodating and prompt with her communication. We were able to stay late on the Sunday, as there was no other booking for that day.Pros: Spacious, well-equipped kitchen and… More

Thanks for such helpful comments which we've acted on straightaway. We've had a good session in the garden to cut back the excess growth and have introduced some more flowers, we have tackled the cobwebs high up in the rafters and have put new planters at the front. We also have repainting of the exterior and interior scheduled for early September, so the Barn will be looking very fresh!

"Definitely returning"

We stayed at the White Barn for two nights as we were going to a wedding at Cambridge University. The owner Claire was very accommodating before our arrival and this was appreciated as we were staying… More

Thanks so much for your lovely review, and glad the wedding went so well!

"Perfect romantic getaway!"

We stayed in this quaint little accommodation in November 2013. It was our 1 year wedding anniversary and we decided to go to Cambridge for a weekend, simply because it was only a one hour drive away… More

I'm so glad you had such a lovely stay. Thanks for a great review.

"Great warm holiday home"

We had wonderful weekend break at the White Barn. Such a beautiful, bright and warmly decorated flat with lots of natural light. I loved the fact that the barn is completely self-contained which made … More

We're really glad you enjoyed your stay. There is a post office-shop in the village and small pub, but your right that a car is essential for reaching the excellent restaurants and pubs in surrounding villages.

"simply excellent - but vehicle is essential"

Absolutely superb, welcoming yet not intrusive owner Claire on hand if needed, everything provided for a short or longer stay, have already rebooked for 2 more breaks next year and would recommend wi… More

Thanks for a great review. Look forward to seeing you again next year.

"A great place to stay"

If there are only two of you and you have a car, then this is an excellent place to stay. The place is immaculate and very warm. We had a three day break in October when the East winds were blowing. … More

Thanks very much, I'm glad you had such an enjoyable stay. The good news is that we have put in an extra router, and WI-FI is now UP AND RUNNING!
