The Cambridgeshire region

Picturesque rolling Fens, unspoilt beaches, and pretty waterways – East Anglia is a dream holiday destination. Norfolk offers beaches, saltmarshes and quaint villages whilst equally as charming are the coast and countryside of Suffolk.


Situated in the south east corner of Cambridgeshire, the rural village of Isleham is well placed for access to the towns of Newmarket and Ely. Boasting three churches, three good pubs, a 24-hour Co-op supermarket and a post office, this lovely village makes the ideal location to enjoy a relaxing break. Free fishing is available all year on the River Lark which runs parallel to the village whilst Newmarket offers a range of good shops and excellent horse-racing at its famous track. As one of the smallest cities in Britain, Ely possesses a beautiful cathedral and an incredibly picturesque riverside walk, along which is the prize-winning tea-room, Peacocks, and a three storey antique shop housed in an old mill. The city of Cambridge itself is worth visiting and guests can take a punting tour along the river Cam to explore the various colleges.
