    In summer, at the end of a week's cycling tour, we (2 couples) require a night's accommodation in or near Ely with self-serve laundry facilities. We have no car, and will be travelling by train to Stansted next morning. If wet... does The Old School B&B have a dryer?

    I'm sure if you ask the land lady Doris when you book with her she will make sure you can dry your clothes. Doris is very friendly and helpful so she will help you.

    Good morning. My husband and I are planning a holiday in East Anglia for July 2016 and as I am a wheelchair user, we need to determine the accessibility of lodgings for me. The Old School B & B sounds absolutely delightful but I need to find out what sort of access there is. Is there a ground floor room available with an ensuite that has a shower and safety bars? And, of course, doorways that are wide enough for me to get through with my wheelchair (32 inches minimum) and no steps. Thank you for any information you can provide. Kind regards, Judy Krum, Sanford, Florida, USA
