  • "The Limes was spacious and very clean with a well equipped kitchen and conservatory and excellent parking facilities."

    The garden was large with tables for eating outside. The owner checked that we had arrived safely. However there were several omissions regarding the details. In each bedroom there should be a bedside table, a bedside reading lamp, a chair, a mirror and a hand towel to go with the bath towels. The loft bedroom did not have blinds on the 2 vellux windows. The bathroom needs a door hook for towels and a shelf in the shower cubicle. The washroom downstairs needs a mirror. The kitchen needs a cafetière or fresh coffee machine. The front gate posts should have the house number as it was difficult to locate the actual property. There should be a house folder containing information about the wi fi code, bus timetable, attractions etc. There were no dishwasher tablet and no extra toilet rolls. The arrangements for receiving the key code are vague and uncertain. The code was only received the day before. Sykes should take responsibility for this rather than the clients having to phone the owner. If these small details are addressed this would be an excellent 5 star property.

  • "We enjoyed our stay in Harston, an excellent location for visiting Cambridge."

    The house was very clean but first impressions disappointed. There were no coffee tables in either of the 2 lounges and no bedside tables. For a house sleeping 14, the dining facility of one table and 8 chairs in the conservatory was poor. We had to bring in a picnic table from the garden. Cutlery was also in short supply (eg 13 forks). The garden was unsuitable for the children (and dog) to play in as there was glass and rubbish around. To be fair to the owner, he came out to resolve some of our issues and by midweek had arranged for the garden to be tidied and he also produced 3 bikes for the boys to use to get to the park in the village. Just a pity it was not done earlier.

  • "Perfect house for a holiday"

  • "This is a really Good house and we were very happy there."

    Clearly a great deal of work has been done on the house. The kitchen is very well equipped and everywhere was spotlessly clean. Still a few “finishing touches” required eg some bedside cabinets and small tables in lounges. And the garden, whilst huge, would benefit from clearing up bits of loose glass from the greenhouse and needs something to prevent dogs/children wandering into the front and road. But this was a superb place and we would definitely book again when visiting Cambridge.

  • "Lovely property and great location to explore the wonderful city of Cambridge."

    Plenty of space and room to relax and a great conservatory for eating together. The property manager could not do enough to help us and ensure our stay was great - would recommend if you want a base to explore Cambridgeshire

Nestled in the affluent village of Harston, a stone's throw away from the vibrant University city of Cambridge, rests this remarkable holiday home, The Limes.

Boasting a striking Victorian exterior and offering a warming and homely setting, The Limes is an idyllic base for your next group celebration.

A spacious driveway greets you at the foot of this lovely dwelling, making loading and unloading an easy task, leading you over the threshold and into a delightful hallway space, offering handy storage to kick off your shoes and house your belongings away from the main living areas.

Unwind with a leisurely seat in front of the television in the nearby sitting room, beautifully decorated with traditional character, with an exposed stone fireplace and original wooden floorboards, creating a warming ambiance to relax with a cup of tea following an action-packed day.

Be charmed by the stylish newly renovated kitchen, flooded with light welcomed in through the elegant bifold doors and housing all of the modern amenities necessary to prepare a heart-warming meal for the group.

Gather your loved ones around the grand dining table taking centre stage in the conservatory and indulge in your culinary delights enveloped in the tranquil view of the surrounding greenery of the garden, or if you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, step outside and enjoy a spot of alfresco dining on the patio, toasting a glass of fizz to an unforgettable holiday.

Escape the excitement and enjoy a solace retreat to the second sitting room, catching up on your favourite show as you tune into the television, or delving into the pages of a captivating book for a moment of peace.

Resting on the ground-floor is the first of six bedrooms, fit with a sumptuous double bed, serviced by a neighbouring cloakroom, offering the ideal sleeping arrangements for guests with limited mobility.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor, you'll find three double rooms alongside a twin, all beautifully decorated with a neutral and calming interior, with one of the double rooms benefiting from its own en-suite shower.

Tucked away on the second floor is the fabulous master room, boasting a double bed and a fabulous en-suite bathroom.

In the morning, prepare for a new day with a luxurious soak in the elegant roll-top bath featured in the contemporary family bathroom, or if you'd prefer, jump in the shower for a quick rinse before heading out on an adventure.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and take the short stroll into the heart of Harston, where the long street of the quaint village homes a well-stocked convenience store, perfect for picking up any last-minute ingredients, as well as a traditional country pub, with the quirky twist of serving authentic Thai food.

Spend a fun-filled day meeting the wildlife at Shepreth Wildlife Park, or if that's not your thing, discover the fascinating exhibits of warfare on display at IWM Duxford.

Venture further afield to the nearby city of Cambridge, home to the world renowned Cambridge University, where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll through the colourful Botanic Gardens, marvel at the striking architecture of the medieval 12th century Round Church, or embark on a cruise on the tranquil waters of the River Cam.

Whether you're looking to unwind or experience adventure, The Limes is a base that you'll be delighted to return home to.
