  • "It’s a small place, but quite roomy upstairs."

    It has all the facilities needed at a very reasonable price. Fulwood is a lovely village, with good shops and two pubs.

  • "The accommodation functions satisfactory but with some restrictions of washing facilities."

    The underfloor heating at ground floor is adequate as background heating but additional heating at 1st floor is needed in colder conditions.

  • "We did enjoy our stay at the studio, It was very cosy, and the kitchen well equipped."

    It could do with being updated thought, the shower room was very small. It was a nice place for dog walking as woods were just down the road.

  • "Unusual studio apartment, at the side and over garages."

    Well equipped kitchen and nicely furnished. Hosts were very friendly. Dog walks in woods very close to apartment. Regular buses into Addenbrooks/Cambridge from the village. Good food at the Six Bells in the village but don’t be in a hurry as service is rather slow.

  • "Great location."

    Very easy to get to Cambridge using 'Park and Ride' and near lots of National Trust properties. Very easy to park at the property. Downside, as we anticipated from the photos, is that the property is very small with steep angled ceiling on the 1st floor giving limited area in which you can stand up straight. We did bang our heads a few times. Although there were 2 room fans, it was very hot, as only 1 window opens in the property. The shower and toilet downstairs under the stairs is also small.

    Sorry to hear you banged your head. There were actually 3 fans and 4 windows that open in the studio. It is unfortunate that we all suffer from the extremely hot weather at times. Property Owner

  • "Although in a perfect location for what we needed, the facilities were a little challenging."

    The shower room downstairs was tiny. Very difficult to wash and dress in there. The other facilities were fine. Bed was comfy, sofas were comfy and the owners were very nice. The space for the dog to runaround in was beautiful and was a real pleasure to take advantage of.

  • "We loved The Studio."

    Private and comfortable, and central to Fulbourn with walks for dog owners and their dogs! and Cambridge to explore only 20mins away. Surrounded by fields and good views through the dormers. The place was warm with underfloor heating despite frost mornings. The Coop nearby guaranteed supplies and a large Tesco only 10 minutes drive away enhanced choice. The kitchen had all you needed and the washing machine a really useful addition. The bathroom was clean and functional with shower and basin. The open living allowed a comfortable stay and there was plenty of seating, table and chairs, TV, and library divider if you didn’t bring your own books. Park and ride nearby because parking costs are horrendous in the central city. All in all a very relaxing and hassle free week was had at the Studio. Would book again. Elaine and Geoff were friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome from arrival to departure. Thank you.

    We had good weather and ate outside most of the time. My husband, who is about 6ft , found the limited headroom upstairs a little awkward. The property was well appointed and furnished with all you needed.

  • "Ideally sited for our visit with our dog."

    He loved being able to walk in the woods of the nature reserve opposite the entrance each morning. The WiFi was a welcome facility which was not listed.

  • "The Studio provided us with an excellent base for exploring the area of the Cambridge Fens and local towns / cities such as Cambridge , Ely , Bury St Edmunds and the smaller villages using mostly well marked paths across farmland and through nature reserves."

    The studio is small but cosy with a comfortable bed and sofas. The upstairs lounge area and bedroom has sloping walls/ ceilings which for anyone who is taller than average could be an issue. Apart from that it had everything needed for a relaxing break. The local Co op and takeaways as well as 3 pubs in the village gave us plenty of choice for eating in the evenings after days spent exploring on foot or by car. I would recommend this property and would book again if we revisited the area.

  • "This is a cute and cosy place to stay, and the hosts are fabulous."

    You are right near a nature reserve - literally on your doorstep. I had two dogs, and it was winter, so we were muddy guests, but the host couldn't have been more accommodating. Fulbourn is a quintessential English village with so many beautiful walks and attractions on your doorstep. Plus, Cambridge City is only a quick drive or park and drive away. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you so much!!

    We were in the area visiting an elderly relative and so required a place for a few nights stay that was comfortable but also value for money.
