  • The Barn at Butts Farm, CambridgeshireInstant Book Overlay Image
    If you are looking for an unusual place to stay, this unique and quirky barn conversion could be for you. This former granary has been converted into a beautiful, stylish cottage with many original features.
    The spacious beamed living room has windows on three sides, allowing the light to flood in. With its vaulted beamed ceiling, oak floor, and log-burning stove in a large stone fireplace, it is a warm and welcoming room. Equipped with a large, comfortable sofa and chairs, it’s a delightful place for friends and family to relax at the end of the day. There is a separate toilet that is accessed from the living room. The fully fitted kitchen has oak worktops, a Belfast sink and a plate rack. The twin bedroom is in the attic and has exposed brickwork and sloping ceilings. The quirky layout of the barn means you access the double bedroom and en-suite shower room via an external entrance, enhancing the charm of this unique cottage. The delightful, tranquil bedroom also has a vaulted ceiling and oak floor, along with a New England colonial bed and Japanese hot tub. The room also has French doors overlooking a small patio garden equipped with a rattan table and chairs.
    The village of Wicken is a charming base for your holiday with a village pond and green just opposite the barn conversion, as well as the local pub and Wicken Fen Nature Reserve. Cycle hire is also available at Wicken Fen, so you can tour the scenic routes of Sustrans Route 11 all the way through to King’s Lynn. The village is honeycombed with ancient waterways and the River Cam runs through the area.
    Visit Ely Cathedral a little further afield; the city is also home to The Stained-Glass Museum, Oliver Cromwell’s House and a Saturday market. Newmarket is also nearby, a quaint market town hosting the National Horse Racing Museum. Or why not explore the picture-perfect streets of Cambridge? Where you’ll find plenty of museums, independent cafés and Cambridge University Botanic Garden.

    Nestled in beautiful, open Cambridgeshire countryside, Wood Fen Lodges have been thoughtfully converted and decorated to provide all the home comforts that discerning guests need for a relaxing getaway. In a quiet location with exposed beams, cosy wood burner and private use of a hot tub (by arrangement), there really is nothing more you could need for a perfect break. Some guests may choose not to venture far, instead deciding to relax in their private garden, or perhaps book themselves in for a spa treatment at the on site spa (at cost), where refreshments are also available.

    Those wishing to explore the area will have chosen well with so much to see and do nearby. The university city of Cambridge offers numerous museums, including the famous Fitzwilliam, lots of walking tours, including university routes, punting, shopping and great places to eat. You should also make time for the open top bus tour, which gives an insight into the history of this fascinating city. And, why not take a trip to Norwich with its impressive Norman castle overlooking a fine city full of attractions and things to do? History buffs will also enjoy a visit to the Hanseatic Old Quarter of Kings Lynn, The Royal Sandringham Estate or the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, which offers up an impressive collection detailing the history of aviation, including several aircraft. In fact, this may well be your only chance now to say that you’ve been on Concorde!

    For a change of pace and some refreshing sea air, you can be in Hunstanton in less than an hour. Here you will find a wide sandy beach that seems to go on forever, a small funfair, a Sealife Centre, Norfolk Lavender and lots of seaside shops and cafes. Closer to home lies the bustling city of Ely with its impressive cathedral, nicknamed ‘The ship of the Fens’ because of the way it rises up on the horizon. Here you will find a fascinating stained glass museum, which offers a rare insight to this beautiful art form.

    Bustling Newmarket is close by and offers a famous racecourse which often hosts musical entertainment evenings. For breathtaking countryside, visit Thetford Forest with its numerous walks and cycle routes, and its Go Ape centre, featuring tree walks, zip wires and Tarzan swings. And, after all your adventures, you can head back to Wood Fen Lodges, unwind, relax (perhaps in the hot tub?) and dream of places yet to see. Just perfect! Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
