Number 1 Fullers Hill is one of a collection of seven superb self-catering properties on a family-run farm in the Cambridgeshire countryside. Dating from the 1800s, the cottage has been given a fresh, contemporary feel without losing its period charm, and can sleep up to four people in two bedrooms (plus an extra two on the sofa bed). The owners of Fullers Hill Cottages have created a haven so peaceful that it is difficult to believe it is only 25-minutes from the ancient city of Cambridge. The size and layout of Number 1 is perfect for couples, families or friends. The cottage can also be booked together with one or more of the other properties to accommodate extended families or groups of friends for events such as hen parties, wedding parties and family reunions.
The location of Fullers Hill Cottages is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts, particularly those who enjoy a leisurely cycle or a long ramble through the countryside. The extensive network of footpaths and bridleways make it easy to explore, with the owners able to provide not only advice about suitable routes but also suitable accommodation if guests want to bring their horse on holiday with them.
Local attractions include the beautiful city of Cambridge with its historic university buildings as well as a wealth of excellent places to eat, drink and shop. The National Trust cares for the nearby Wimpole Estate, while the animals at Home Farm are always a favourite with children. Engine enthusiasts will enjoy the Shuttleworth Collection near Biggleswade, while those interested by military history can visit the Duxworth Imperial War Museum. A day exploring London's many incredible attractions is also simple to arrange, with trains taking around 45-minutes from Sandy station, only seven miles from the cottage.
The owners of Fullers Hill Cottages have done more than creating a home-away-from-home. Their holiday cottages are somewhere to retreat and destress, indulging in highly comfortable surroundings. The owners have an extensive list of local contacts who can help you plan the perfect holiday, including everything from helicopter flights to magicians, dog groomers and fun activities for hen weekends. Please see their website for more information.
