    “We really enjoyed staying at the stables , it was situated close to 4/5 lovely city's and Towns.”

    The immediate area is in farm land so at night its extremely quiet and pitch black without light pollution, star gazing is a must.. The bungalow was very equipped, infact I took too many things with us as Ali had provided everything we needed. It's a really warm and extremely comfortable bungalow albeit a little dated but certainly not worn! Ali made us feel really welcome she allowed the kids to pick apples off her many trees ,so we made lovely crumbles. She also brought us pumpkins for the ...

    The immediate area is in farm land so at night its extremely quiet and pitch black without light pollution, star gazing is a must.. The bungalow was very equipped, infact I took too many things with us as Ali had provided everything we needed. It's a really warm and extremely comfortable bungalow albeit a little dated but certainly not worn! Ali made us feel really welcome she allowed the kids to pick apples off her many trees ,so we made lovely crumbles. She also brought us pumpkins for the kids as it was halloween. We used Tesco for our food delivery with no problem at all. The bungalow was immaculate, I myself as a domestic cleaner notices every bit of dust , but I was amazed at the cleanliness, the BEST we have ever been too. If I had only one suggestion to make it would be to put a washing machine in, even if it was in the adjoining garage, having 3 children it's a real bonus to be able to do a few loads. Ali would of let us use her machine but I would of felt awkward. A lovely relaxing stay. Thank you Ali

The property

This spacious, ground floor former stable has been converted to a high standard using reclaimed bricks.

Set in the owner's extensive garden and offering a quite escape on the edge of Wicken village with pleasant rural views.

Ideal for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers the property is located just a short distance from one of the oldest nature reserves, Wicken Fen, a wetland Site of Special Scientific Interest.

The area also boasts an official 'dark sky' which is fantastic for star gazing enthusiasts due to the rural location.

The reserve offers extensive walks, boardwalks and cycle trails.

This lovely ground floor cottage lends itself perfectly to friends, families and those with mobility issues.

There is ample off road parking directly outside the front door which opens onto a light, bright entrance room which gives access to the sitting room and kitchen and dining area, both enjoy views of the back garden and beyond.

There is a shared wetroom centrally located in the property and three bedrooms beyond the sitting room.

A twin room and a walk-through twin room leading to the master bedroom.
