  • “A lovely cottage which was ideal for two adult couples.”

    Super welcome pack, including eggs from the chickens next door! Water pressure was very low in the upstairs shower but otherwise all facilities were excellent.

About the property

Pre-dating the great fire of London and built circa 1530, this alluring, thatched cottage rests peacefully within the small village of Foxton, surrounded by Cambridgeshire countryside.

The house also predates the order by which Henry VIII commanded the use of less oak in, as shown by the large beams adding character to the interior.

Set back from the road on Foxton High Street, this cosy cottage is ideal for a family of four or a group of friends looking to tour this beautiful region.

Step into the lounge, which has a large inglenook fireplace for decoration and traditional beams, a beautiful space to relax with your loved ones in the evenings.

Rustle up a delicious, home-cooked meal in the kitchen and get together around the dining table, taking in your surroundings as you tuck in and discuss the events from your day.

Lastly, the ground floor plays host to a lovely twin room overlooking the garden and a shower room, with a walk-in shower cubicle.

Climb the enchanting, spiral staircase to the master bedroom, which has a bathroom next door for your convenience, playing host to a deep-soaking roll top bath tub.

You will see the date above the ornate fireplace in this main bedroom reads '1637', relating to the date in which the then owner, Richard Beaumont had the entire house positioned back from the road and stream that ran at the front.

Spend your summer afternoons in the small, shared cottage garden to the rear, a pleasant spot to sit with a refreshing drink after you've explored the area.

Beaumont's Cottage is set in a lovely South Cambridgeshire village, giving you easy access to both Cambridge and London Kings Cross from Foxton railway station.

There is a village pub The White Horse and a handy shop just a few steps along the high street, as well as a village cricket pitch, a football pitch and a children's playground.

Interestingly, the nearby village of Barrington has a historic pub, The Royal Oak, which boasts of being a stop-by point by Charles II.

You are also close to Duxford Aerodrome with its flying displays and plane collections, several National Trust properties are in the area, including Wimpole Hall Farm, and there is also the Shepreth Wildlife Park for a day out with the kids.

The cultural, university city of Cambridge offers so much more, with its remarkable architecture and plethora of pubs, shops and eateries to indulge.

Experience a well-earned rest at this beautiful, thatched cottage with your loved ones.

About the location


Shepreth 1.5 miles; Cambridge 6 miles

Foxton is a charming South Cambridgeshire village boasting a myriad of well-preserved 15th and 16th century houses, along with a church dedicated to St. Laurence, dating back to at least 1225. The village is home to a public house, a shop and a mainline rail station taking you to London via the nearby village of Shepreth, which plays host to the Shepreth Willdlife Park, where you can listen to professional animal talks, experience close encounters with a variety of animals and grab a bite to eat in the Jungle Café. You are within easy reach of the ancient city of Cambridge, abundant with beautiful architecture, a long history and its imposing university, home to the King's College Chapel, Cavendish Laboratory and the Cambridge University Library, one of the largest in the world. With its leafy green meadows and pretty, riverside walks, this is the perfect location to spend an afternoon, boasting many attractions to keep you entertained. Visit the beautiful Hertford Bridge or 'Bridge of Sighs', named so because of its resemblance to the famous Bridge of Sighs in Venice, connecting the campus buildings with its intricate structure. You also have the Mathematical Bridge, the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, St Mary's Church, the botanic gardens within Cambridge University and the contemporary art gallery Kettle's Yard, a truly beautiful city and well worth the visit. This is a lovely destination for holiday!
