The End Cottage

Your own thatched cottage in delightful garden with tremendous views, beamed double bedroom, en-suite facilities. Breakfast in adjacent 16th Century main house. Close to Cambridge, Imperial War Museum, Duxford and Saffron Walden. Good food at local pubs.

The compact, 16thC converted barn stands in a delightful garden on a hilltop commanding tremendous views that embrace a distant rim of the Chilterns, the spires of Cambridge & beyond them, the misty bulk of Ely Cathedral, 30 odd miles away. The accommodation consists of a beamed double bedroom, a shower and dressing room and a separate lavatory with washbasin. There are books, magazines, TV and radio and always flowers on the table.

Breakfast is served beside a deep inglenook fireplace in the dining room of the main house, a larger thatched and beamed cottage of similar age that shares the garden. Local produce is used for breakfast, and the marmalade and jams are homemade. Within walking distance there is an excellent pub/restaurant, and several others with glowing reputations in villages roundabout. There is much to see in the area, although a car is necessary.

The colleges, museums and art galleries of Cambridge are within easy reach as is the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, with its famous array of aircraft and armoured fighting vehicles. Not far off is the pretty market town of Saffron Walden and great houses to visit, such as Wimpole Hall, Audley End and Anglesey Abbey.

Stansted Airport is about 40 minutes away and Central London is no more than 1.5 hrs, whether by the A1 (M), the M11, or the A10; and the unspoiled coasts of Suffolk and Norfolk can be reached in about the same time. There is also an excellent train service to London from Royston.

Chairs and table in garden. Dogs accepted by arrangement.
