    We booked this cottage for an Easter break for myself, my husband and our 2 year old. The cottage is well set out on the Main Street and was easy to find. The cottage has everything you need for a holiday- we were so comfortable we wanted to stay longer. The kitchen is well laid out and both bedrooms are lovely. The patio door leads onto a small grassed garden. We loved listening to the woodpeckers and were blessed with lovely weather so took no washing home, it was all done here. The location is perfect. It's close to the Park and Ride, A14 and M11 (all within 10 mins) and was also perfect for running. The village is picturesque- there are no shops but a lovely restaurant and a small park too. Overall, the only thing I think could could be improved is the lack of blind in the 2nd bedroom velux window, it was too light for our little boy but that's no big issue, he just came in beside us. We enjoyed our stay here an hope to return!

About the location


Cambridge 4 miles; Newmarket 18 miles.

The attractive rural village of Madingley lies just four miles to the west of the renowned university city of Cambridge. Madingley is a small village with a medieval church, a village green that is surrounded by pretty thatched cottages and a traditional English country pub. Just a short walk from the green is Madingley Hall, a stunning Tudor house which is now part of the University of Cambridge whilst on the edge of the village is Britain's only World War II American Military Cemetery. With the historic city of Cambridge on the doorstep you will be spoilt for choice with attractions to explore and inspire you. Cambridge has many interesting museums, art galleries and the 40 acre University Botanic Gardens. The historic market place offers quaint passages leading to wonderful architectural college buildings, parks and a beautiful riverbank along with an excellent selection of eateries and shopping. One of the best ways to explore Cambridge is by one of its many public guided tours, as well as ghost tours, bus tours, or a chauffeured river punt tour. Just a little further afield are several country houses with parklands and gardens, Duxford Imperial War Museum and Newmarket Racecourse and National Horseracing Museum.
