Thank you to Charlie and Jude for making our stay such a good one. Nothing was too much trouble including the blackout blind to stop the street lamp from interrupting sleep. Great breakfast with local and home made produce. Would highly recommend!

Friendly couple and very clean, however there are a few things that need attention. No parking is provided, we had no problems with on street parking though. There is no door on the ensuite, there is a net curtain, even after many years together there are some things I prefer not to share. The heater in the bathroom does not... More

We enjoyed staying in this charming, cosy cottage with plenty of character. The owners were friendly and although the cottage was small our room was of a good size with everything we needed, including extra toiletries in the bathroom. Breakfast was very good with generous portions. It is in a good location near the river and not far from the... More

Just an overnight stay for us, in town for a friend's birthday celebrations, but would echo what other reviewers have said about the charm and character of this property and how hospital Jude & Charlie were - which even extended to finding cufflinks for us when partner had forgotten to pack his! This is a great option for a b'n'b... More

Delightful. We only stayed the one night this time but we will stay again without hesitation. We couldn't have been made more welcome, nothing was too much trouble. Their home was shared with us with such ease. Bedroom and ensuite spotless and the breakfast kept us going for the rest of the day. Great location too so handy for exploring... More

Located in a mid-18th century cottage, this B&B is close to the river Ouse and only a short walk away from the stunning Cathedral of Ely. Jude & Charlie offered us a warm hospitality in their small house furnished in a Victorian flavour and decorated with a personal touch in every corner. The atmosphere was pleasant and relaxed. Our en-suite... More

We completely agree with the reviews on this page, and especially those of Tom and Catherine concerning travelling with young children. The hosts of 29 Waterside, Charlie and Jude, could not have done more to make this a relaxing stay for our young family. The inclusion of fresh sunflowers in our room was really lovely as they are my favourite... More

Just one example of a very warm welcome at this B&B when stayed there with my husband and one year old. Several B&Bs in Ely were distinctly sniffy about small children, but our hosts were charming about it, had made various adjustments to suit her and gave us a very pleasant stay. A beautiful cottage, though small, and perfect location,... More
