“Compact, cosy, clean, convenient”
Reviewed 26 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

we three retired ex colleagues spent 3 nights at Castle Hill cottage on a sightseeing trip along with cards and conviviality. The cottage suited us fine. 10 mins to the centre of Cambridge, good pubs locally, and parking a short walk away.

The cottage is compact, the kitchen ok unless too many cooks are involved, and the stairs are a challenge, but we would definitely go back if visiting Cambridge. Great little getaway.

“Convenient Location”

We stayed at Castle Hill Cottage for 10 nights. The cottage is located in a convenient location, with numerous restaurants, the colleges, shops, and the river very close by. The cottage is not large but has everything one needs for a comfortable stay. It should be noted that the cottage is on three levels and has stairs to climb to the bedrooms and bath. Definitely would stay here again.

“Convenient, comfortable and cosy”
Reviewed 24 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

An excellent location for all the attractions of Cambridge and the surrounding area. We spent five nights here. The staircase would be a problem for anyone very young or very elderly but not a problem for us. The beds were comfy. The boiler had a mind of its own and it was too hot, so we switched it off but it would be warm and cosy in winter. There were two excellent pubs just outside the door for an end of day or pre dinner drink. Trevor provided a parking permit at a very reasonable price of £10, which provided parking a few minutes walk away.

“Prime Location with Character”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This cottage is superbly placed for Cambridge city centre. On street parking (coin meter) is nearby at Pound Hill with free parking 10-15 minutes walk to the N on Storey's Way. This is I think a better option than a family room in a city hotel at a comparable price. There are three floors connected by steep spiral staircases, it's quite a task to get a suitcase up to the top floor. The owner is very swift to respond to all enquiries. If we have reason to return to this distinctive and fascinating city, we would like to stay here again.

“Perfect location; cosy home”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It is ideally located close to the center of everything in town. The accommodation is a little small and the top bedroom is a little too warm because of the water heater, but it is worth it to be in the heart of Cambridge, close to shops and restaurants. The landlord is nice and laid back.
