The property

Situated on the tranquil grounds of the Riverside Island Marina, overlooking a calm nature-filled lake, is 89 Sandpiper, a pint-sized Scandinavian lodge tucked away on the outskirts of Isleham village.

Resting in a picture-postcard position with a variety of scenic walking trails available from your doorstep, 89 Sandpiper is an idyllic base for a group of friends or a couple looking to explore the delights of Cambridgeshire & Suffolk.

Settle in for a quiet evening as you bask in this unique dwelling, making use of the compact kitchen to whip up a tasty treat before heading out to the open conservatory where you can look out to serene lake views as you indulge with a glass of wine.

The conservatory is the perfect spot to kick back with a good book to enjoy a moment of peace, letting you listen to the back and forth trickles of the flowing river and the delightful birdsong.

When you're ready to call it a night, head to one of the attractive bedrooms, both providing inviting small doubles, great for two friends or a two couples.

Kickstart your day with a quick rinse in the shared bathroom before stepping outdoors to sip on your morning coffee on the peaceful deck for a moment of mindfulness.

Enjoy the charming south facing garden area, where a raised decking borders the lake, providing the perfect spot for some afternoon of fishing and wildlife spotting, look out for swans, ducks, herons, geese, and kingfishers who come to say hello.

You can also park your boat right outside the lodge, venturing out on a day trip along the calming waters over to Ely.

Take a romantic stroll to the centre of Isleham, a rural village boasting a fantastic supermarket for you to stock up on essentials, a handy Post Office, and three country pubs to choose from when you fancy a refreshing afternoon pint or an evening meal out.

Explore the lovely town of Newmarket which hosts an even wider choice of local pubs, independent restaurants and shopping facilities, as well as the much loved Newmarket race course and train links over to Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge and Ely.

Ely is another vibrant town featuring antique shops, riverside walks, and sensational boat trips on the River Ouse, whilst nature lovers will relish rambles, hiking and cycling trips throughout Ely Country Park, Beechwoods Nature Reserve, and Thetford Forest Park.

Other must-see historic attractions in reach include the Pillar of Salt, Trinity College Great Gate, the Bridge of Sighs, and the Russian cannon to name a few!

Treat yourself to a relaxing break at 89 Sandpiper.

An inviting sitting area, compact but well equipped kitchen, two bedrooms with small doubles and one shared bathroom will comfortably facilitate your outdoor activities.

89 Sandpiper is a great retreat opportunity for two friends or two couples.
