  • "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.

  • "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.......
