A bright, modern home providing all amenities, just a 30 minute drive from the historic cathedral city of Cambridge.

Once the old village bakery (and more recently a shop), this pretty detached cottage has been totally renovated providing a spacious, bright and airy holiday home. With beams, an exposed brick wall and natural floors, it exudes much character yet provides all modern amenities, and is set in a slightly elevated position overlooking a cottage garden with an abundance of wisteria. Close by is the historic city of Ely with imposing cathedral, attractive river and good selection of individual shops, pubs, restaurants and tearooms. Within a 30-minute drive lies the city of Cambridge with its art galleries, colleges, botanical gardens and punts on the River Cam. Also close by is Newmarket for stud farms and racing. Shop 400 yards, pub 100 yards.

Large beamed living room with wood-burning stove in brick fireplace. Beamed kitchen/dining room with TV. Utility. Single bedroom. Shower room with toilet. First floor: Four bedrooms; one double, one twin and two single. Bathroom with separate shower cubicle and toilet.

    Great for fishing with two local fisheries, real ale pub across the road that also does good food.

    We had a lovely week over Christmas, a family group of 6 plus the dog. The Old Bakery has versatile accommodation, with a downstairs bedroom and bathroom, as well as plenty of bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. The dog slept well in the spacious kitchen :) The garden was safe and plenty big enough for the dog, and lovely to look at from the warmth indoors, it was a cold frosty Christmas ! It was a nice surprise to arrive to a Christmas tree set up in the lounge :) A lovely cottage which we thoroughly enjoyed staying in.
