This was our second visit to this lovely little house in Hobbit Land. It is perfect for two people and Sarah is very generous with what she provides. The house is in a wonderful location close to
Lovely rural view
Very clean well appointed little cottage set in lovely landscape with views over fields, hills and stone cliffs. Very comfy bed. Fresh brekky ingredients catered nicely. BBQ clean and well positioned on large comfy outdoor deck great for enacting outdoors. Excellent for a couple for a short stay 15 mins from all the attractions of Cambridge.
A nice fully equipped bach just outside Cambridge.
We loved our stay. We did the Hobbiton dinner tour and it lasted until 11pm so it was great to stay at a location that was so close! The bed was comfortable and the shower was nice and hot!
Offgrid get-away in the Shire
We were really surprised by the love for detail and the care that went into this place. Especially the breakfast supplies were a nice touch together with the cookies. The only thing that might need improvement is the Wifi. It doesn't reach the bedroom and is only good for googling but not for more data-intensive applications. But, you really don't need Wifi when you can enjoy a glass of wine on the beautiful patio.
