Perfect for exploring the local area and the whole of the UK. Huntingdon has excellent road links to the A14 and A1 . London is about 1 hour away by car. St Ives , Ely , St Neots, Peterborough,Newmarket, Bedford & Milton Keynes are all within an hours drive.

The new guided busway starts in Huntingdon and takes you through historic St Ives and right to the centre of Cambridge. Cost £11 for a family for a return journey along some lovely Cambridgeshire scenery .

Plenty of lovely walks from the cottage into the local countryside and some lovely English pubs to enjoy.


Huntingdon is situated on Ermine Street, a Roman road from London to York, where it crosses England's third longest river the Great Ouse.

The name Huntingdon is from the Old English word 'Huntedun' meaning Hunta's Hill. Edward the Elder captured Huntingdon from the Vikings around AD921 and it became a county town of Huntingtonshire.

By 1066 the town was a Royal Borough with a mint that issued its own coinage and was granted a Royal Charter in 1205.

During the 13th Century the town flourished with around 15 churches and three hospitals. The Black Death of 1348-9 and the decline of major trade along the river saw the population decrease.

Hinchingbrooke Priory closed in 1536 and passed into the Cromwell family. It then became Hinchingbrooke House the home of the Earl of Sandwich.

Oliver Cromwell, one of the most significant names in English history was born (1599) and raised in Huntington. He was elected Member of Parliament for Huntingdonin 1628 and for Cambridge in the Short (1640) Parliament . He entered the English Civil War on the side of the Parliamentarians or ' Roundheads”. Nicknamed "Old Ironside", he was quickly promoted from leading a single cavalry troop to become one of the principal commanders of the New Model Army, playing an important role in the defeat of the royal forces. He was the 1st Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of England, Scotland and Ireland Cromwell is one of the most controversial figures in the history of the British Isles. A museum in the old grammar school in the heart of the town tells his story.

Due to the town location on the Great North Road Huntingdon became a major coaching centre in the 17th & 18th centuries. The town we see today is largely Georgian in its creation. Later the town expanded in the second half of the19th century with the arrival of the railway.

During the 1980's the town continued to be one of the fastest growing in the country. Its prosperity was further enhanced when local MP John Major became British Prime Minister.

With the towns excellent rail and road links the town has expanded to the vibrant town you will find today.

Huntingdon town centre is a 2 minute walk away from Gothic Cottage .

The town of Huntingdon boasts a vibrant and busy town centre with a diverse and imaginative mix of both independent and national retailers including Next, Mothercare, Sainsbury's, Waitrose, Claire's Accessories, Costa Coffee and Starbucks. It has a traditional attractive high street, a large proportion of which is pedestrianised . There are also two shopping precincts, Chequers Court and St Benedict's Court plus some lovely shops tucked away down little side streets The impressive Market Square where the war memorial, The Thinking Soldier sits is flanked by the 18th century Town Hall and the 13th Century All Saints Church. The memorial was designed by the late wife of Scott of the Antarctic

Cambridgeshire Fact of the Month

The Falcon Inn on Market Sq Huntingdon has reopened this December . Its is said that Oliver Cromwell used the very pub. Now you too can have a pint and maybe change the world too !

Review 1-7 of 7

Stayed over whilst visiting friends. Great location 2 mins walk from Huntington town centre. Excellent facilities in the cottage/house. Loved the gothic mirrors. great kitchen & bathroom . Nice area outside, although it was too cold to use it whilst we were staying!! but ideal for the dog. The bus stops right outside and joins the busway to Cambridge. Cambridge was a great place . No problem recommending staying here.

Many thanks for your lovely review. So pleased you enjoyed your stay & hope to see you again sometime. Best wishes Paul & Sasha
