About the property

Enjoy all the attractions of Cambridge city centre then get a good night's sleep in peaceful surroundings. Based in the tranquil and green village of Girton, only 10 minutes by car/bus, to the centre of Cambridge. Good for couples & solo travellers.

The annex is adjoined to my house but is private; self contained, with its own front door and entrance hall.

The property comprises of bedroom with double bed and smart tv, sitting room with kitchen area, including a washing machine, fridge, oven/hob and sofa bed, good size bathroom with large shower, hair dryer provided.

Parking is provided off the road (on the drive in front of the property).

The village of Girton is close enough to cycle (15 mins), drive (10 mins), bus (10 mins) or walk in to historic Cambridge.

The village itself has two pubs, both serving great food, a small supermarket, hairdressers, florist and lovely walks across the fields. There is also a golf course in the village.

Girton, Fitzwilliam, Churchill, Murray Edwards and Magdalene colleges and the Moller Centre are all less than 10 minutes away by car.

The American Cemetery in Madingley is also only a ten minute drive away.

The second bed is a sofa bed and although it is designed to sleep two, it may be a bit cosy.

Property was lovely. Quality mattress which I think is very important. Lovely touches such as Laura Ashley hand-wash and lotion. Face wipes. Lots of extra touches that make a difference..Host was fabulous. I would definitely stay again.

Not as expected

  • 1 of 5

We found this property to be much smaller than expected with no space or table and chairs to sit and eat, nowhere to store bags and a very tiny table top fridge. Basically it is a studio with everything in one room. It's also very dark and gloomy. Probably OK if you only want a short stay and do not expect to spend much time there or eat at the property but if you have luggage and intend to stay longer it is very cramped.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately this guest had specific requirements which they didn't notify me of in advance and they decided not to stay. There is a coffee table (not shown in the photos) and a sofabed (pictured) to sit on. I would be happy to provide extra chairs if requested. The fridge is as pictured in the photos. There is a hanging rail with hangers for clothes and a suitcase rack for luggage.

The George Pub

There are two pubs in the village which serve food, five minutes walk away. The first pub is called The George and the second one (a few minutes walk further on) is The Old Crown (booking in advance recommended,). There is also the Travellers Rest pub on Huntingdon Road, 25 minutes walk. Or take a trip to my favourite restaurant in Cambridge, see details below.

Cambridge is good for restaurants, walking along the river, visiting museums or hiring a punt and visiting some of the many colleges.

Some interesting museums are:

the Zoology Museum on Downing Street, the Whipple Science Museum on Free School Lane, the Scott Polar museum, which has some wonderful artefacts from Antarctic exploration and the Fitzwilliam museum, which has a wonderful fan room, with beautiful exhibits.


If you're interested in shopping, alongside the main shopping streets in central Cambridge, a little walk from the main centre there is Mill Road, with independent shops and international restaurants. Trinity Street and Green Street are also good for shopping.


My favourite restaurant in Cambridge is La Margherita, an independently owned Italian restaurant with wonderful puddings, on Magdalene Street, near Magdalene Bridge (pronounced 'maudlen').

If you love books as much as me, I recommend visiting Heffers, on Trinity Street, and taking a walk through St Edward's Passage in the centre to visit a couple of great second hand book shops and one very small cafe!

If you're here in the warmer months why not try out Jesus Green out door swimming pool (lido) - it's not heated though, so be prepared!
