  • "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!!

  • "The Studio was a great venue for our needs."

    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. The studio was cosy, warm (we loved the under-floor heating) and well equipped. The owner Elaine was very friendly and helpful. The local nature reserve fenland area was perfect for walking our dog and the village of Fulbourn was in walking distance with handy shops and pubs. We would definitely book again.

    The cottage is warm and comfortable and the owners are very friendly and helpful, thank-you Elaine and Geoff. There are many walks very near and the main routes are easily accessible for traveling around the Cambridgeshire attractions making it a perfect choice for holidays in this area.

  • "This property has surely not been inspected?"

    Only toilet is 1.5 metres from cooker, behind sliding door that wouldn’t close, let alone lock. Sink in loo too small to wash face in. Equipment in kitchen cast-offs... odd glasses ( not all x2), one egg cup, one cup size battered cafetière etc. Weeds growing on patio. Location good, but never “ romantic “! Have 2 further bookings with Sykes in 2018. Hoping for so much better.......
