Description from owner
Beechwood House is a magnificent period home dating back to the late eighteen hundreds providing a wonderful example of spacious Victorian grandeur. Peacefully situated on the fringe of the picturesque village of Fulbourn, it is conveniently located just five miles from the historic City of Cambridge and less than an hour from the heart of London.
The property has recently undergone a substantial facelift, and whilst retaining many of its original features it has been carefully and tastefully extended, creating a traditional atmosphere blended with the comfort of modern day living. There are also two studio apartments adjacent to the main house (at additional cost) which can be taken if required. Full details can be seen on our principle website at beechwoodhouse-cambridge .co .uk
The bright and airy interior opens out into the most beautifully established and traditional English garden which backs onto open countryside, providing an oasis of unrushed tranquillity and seclusion.
The walled driveway provides ample parking for several cars and has a covered arched shelter for bicycles. The main entrance to Beechwood House opens into a reception hall with guest cloakroom, which runs through the centre of the property. To the left of the reception hall is a large modern kitchen with a central granite-top work island along with all required accessories, plus a pantry and utility room.
Leading on from the open plan kitchen is a large combined living and dining room with flagstone floor (under-floor heating) and large glazed front which opens out into the garden and provides a wonderfully bright and airy aspect. The dining table is set for 10 people, but has an extension for four additional places.
To the side of the dining room is an additional reception room with a high glazed ceiling, which also leads out into the garden and has a second cloakroom with shower/wet-room.
The westerly side of the entrance hall opens into the very large sitting room which has an open fire and half-moon bay window looking out over the garden. There is also a small conservatory and the main room has midway dividing doors should a more cosy atmosphere be sought.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms, two bathrooms and an additional shower room. The master bedroom has a super king bed, two bedrooms have double beds and two have twin singles. An additional bed (£30) can be put in two of the bedrooms, sleeping a maximum of 12 people.
Outside: Set in over an acre of established grounds and beautiful garden, including a small pond, the south facing rear of Beechwood House has been designed to maximise the stunning views across lush lawns and colourful borders. Opening out on to a spacious terrace with barbecue and seating area, al fresco dining is an absolute delight at certain times of the year.
For the more energetic guests, there is badminton, a croquet set and four bicycles at guests' disposal. Along the Easterly border of the garden is the 'pool house' with the private heated indoor swimming pool. The swimming pool is 8m x4m in dimension and the depth is 1m at the shallow end and 2m at the deep end with integral roman steps and is heated all year round.

“Magical weekend in a charming house”
We rented Beechwood for a family get together birthday celebration weekend - it was the first place we visited when we booked almost a year in advance and we fell in love straightaway with the house. Spacious, comfortable, elegant, it is all these and more. James is such a thoughtful and gracious host, everything was ready for our arrival, including a Christmas tree, decorations, a home baked cake and bottle of bubbly. Such a lovely welcome :) With the delights of the cosy indoor pool, the awesome kitchen and flagged dining area, and chilling afterwards by the log fire, it was so hard to have to leave. We’d love to visit again.
Owner's reply: It was a pleasure to have you all to stay at Beechwood House just before Christmas and I'm delighted that you have taken away so many happy memories.
A group of friends and I have just returned from a weekend stay in this amazing house to celebrate a close friends hen weekend. The house provided everything we needed to have a great weekend, the greeting upon arrival was welcoming and informative, the rooms were spacious, everywhere was clean and tastefully decorated, the garden was beautiful and the pool was the icing on the cake! I highly recommend the rental of this wonderful property and would happily make another booking which was a simple and easy process. 5 stars, Well deserved.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind words and we're delighted that you all enjoyed your weekend with us, as well as all aspects of Beechwood House and its grounds.
“Beechwood House is even better than it looks on line”
We booked Beechwood House and one of the studios for a celebration of a family birthday. James was there to welcome us personally when we arrived. First impressions were excellent including champagne on ice, chocolates, lots of fresh fruit and flowers. The house is beautiful inside, big rooms downstairs looking out onto the huge, unoverlooked garden which stretches to open countryside beyond. Upstairs bedrooms are lovely. They vary in size and are ideal for a family gathering. We all enjoyed the lovely swimming pool. Furnishings and facilities are all of a very high standard. We found everything we needed in the kitchen to cook elaborate celebration meals. I made use of one of the bikes provided to look around the village of Fulbourn and we also walked to the recreation ground (5 minutes), the shops (10 minutes) and the pretty church of St. Vigor with a carpet of cowslips in the churchyard. With Park and Ride into Cambridge just two and a half miles away it was easy to load the party onto the bus for a visit. Everyone in our group agreed we couldn't have chosen anywhere better for an occasion such as this.
Owner's reply: It was a pleasure meeting you all and I’m so pleased you found Beechwood House so ideal for your family birthday celebration. James
“Perfect luxury weekend”
We had a fantastic weekend in this beautiful spacious and extremely comfortable house. Thank you for meeting our every need, loved the pool, the many lounging spaces and the beautiful garden.
Owner's reply: I'm really pleased you all had such a good weekend and that everything at Beechwood House was as you hoped. James
“Wonderful house with fantastic amenities. atmosphere and welcome from our host.”
We loved the house..very comfortable and great location. All our needs catered for..from the welcome. Our wonderful host James recommended the taxi company, curry house and picked up salmon from waitrose. Fantastic service and at the end of the phone if needed. We hope to visit again and enjoy such a lovely house with beautiful artwork and great pool. Cambridge is very closeby.
Owner's reply: So nice to see you all enjoying your reunion and I’m please we were able to contribute to its success. Hope to see you again. James
“A warm and welcoming home from home,with a heated swimming pool.!”
Snowy January did not seem the best time to arrange a family get-togther, but the minute we met James at Beechwood House, the warmth of his welcome dispelled any worries. We were twelve adults and one toddler, the house charmed us all. The log fire in the lounge, the really warm indoor swimming pool, togther with the spacious bedrooms, and many bathrooms all ideal for a long weekend 'catch up' Nothing was too much trouble for James,and the added bonus of the close-by White Hart for Sunday lunch made the whole weekend a great success. The family are talking about a visit to Beechwood in October, as we have several birthdays this month, I personally can't wait!
Owner's reply: It was a pleasure meeting you all and I’m so pleased you had such an enjoyable and memorable stay at Beechwood House. I look forward to seeing you again next year! James
“Great Experience in a Beautiful House”
We had a great time at Beechwood House and made many happy memories there. I can honestly say that it was the highlight of the year for us. My wife has lived away from family for a long time which has always been a hard thing for her. Unknown to her, her family and I planned a surprise weekend for her and extended family at Beechwood House. Her family flew in from overseas with great anticipation for the surprise and looking forward to spending time together relaxing and enjoying the pool. The surprise went extremely well and we all enjoyed a very lovely weekend together in this beautiful house. We enjoyed preparing and eating meals together in the spacious dining room and spent a lot of time in the heated pool, which felt great considering it was a very cold weekend. The rooms were all very comfortable for us, with more than enough space for all of us in the house. Mr. Main was very nice and happy to help if needed. We as a family made very happy memories in Beechwood House.
Owner's reply: I'm so pleased Beechwood House helped provide so many happy memories for your family reunion. James
“Outstanding quality of finish, perfect for entertaining, larger than expected & brilliant pool.”
We received the warmest of welcomes when we arrived. The house is perfect for large groups of friends wishing to celebrate a special occasion. It was finished to a very high standard with every facility you could wish for. Great kitchen for dinner parties, fast internet, good local pub, perfect warm indoor pool, what more could you want. Huge garden with Trampoline & small pond (Not suitable for unsupervised children). Very comfy bed. Tesco 5 min down the road and park & ride (Newmarket Road) into Camb town - 5 min past that. Cant wait to go back next year.
Owner's reply: I’m so pleased you all had such a good time and that you enjoyed your stay at Beechwood House so much. You’re most welcome back at any time. James
“ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC HOUSE! OUR SECOND VISIT THIS YEAR!!!”

Really fabulous space, kitchen super and views over the substantial garden. Log fires in the evenings, food, drink and laughter! We are now planning a regular annual visit.
