Lovely independent accommodation which is run by the fantastic Mila. The cottage has ample parking, as well as a great bathroom with brilliant shower and bathroom goodies; a nice lounge; a comfortable bedroom and a nice kitchen. The set up is your order your breakfast and are given the raw materials to cook it yourself - so it can suit...

We recently stayed at the Blue Cow in Fenstanton which is a self-catering B & B. The choice of breakfasts was amazing and always in our fridge for the next day. The washing up was even taken care of! Very comfortable and well equipped accommodation. We will definitely be back!

A lovely place to stay & plenty to do in the area. we were a little chilli in the evenings but the weather had turned very cold over the weekend & the owner had provided a blanket to snuggle under in the stetting room & hot water bottles were available too. we cooked our own breakfast which we had pre...

This hidden gem is best kept hidden. We don't want too many people knowing about. Fenstanton wasn't an attractive town as I arrived in the dark. The Blue Cow owner (lovely lady) met me at the door and escorted me to a separate bungalow/chalet type property at the back of her house. There was plenty of space to park the...

A perfect break. Great place it's more like having your own detached little cottage than staying in a B&B. Have been here before and will certainly come again. A wonderful hideaway. Your own lounge with free WiFi tv dvd etc separate well equipped kitchen diner, good sized shower and large bedroom with a really comfortable bed. Couldn't fault it.

Well done, this is perfect and just what I needed. I had been contacted in advance with directions, asked about any requirements for breakfast ( pick the pancakes and bacon) I was informed they not be there to meet me which was fine. I arrived to discover a perfect venue, walked into a nice warm kitchen, the lounge is great...

Stayed here when we went to a wedding in Cambridge. The owners were very accommodating and despite having a booking the previous night went out of their way to let us in early so we could change after our journey before going to the wedding. The Blue Cow is a cottage in a former stable and is beautifully and tastefully...

Stayed here for the second time over the July 4th weekend and it was a perfectly chilled break, like being at home without the stress. Located just north of Cambridge it is great for exploring the fenlands and surrounding area, would recommend this little gem to anyone as a wonderfull stress buster.

If you ever happen to need a place to stay in the area, this is it! Beautiful, comfortable, very kind lady owner...well almost perfect and it's a little cosy flat not just a bedroom! I might even decide to go there just to stay again in the place

This is a great B&B with a difference. Essentially a self contained one bedroom cottage tucked away quietly in the charming rear garden of a home. Huge breakfast with good options supplied for you to cook yourself.........but leave the dishes and (as quoted by our lovely host)' the pixies will miraculously appear and do the dishes. Roomy, well presented and...
