The property is located in the idyllic village of Barrington, eight miles from the historic University City of Cambridge. The village has the longest village green in the country and a historic Norman church, a regular wedding venue in the summer months. Ideally located to take advantage of Cambridge, Newmarket, The Imperial War Museum, Duxford, Grantchester, the National Trust stately home at Wimpole and easy access to London, with regular fast trains to London Kings Cross.
“The Potting Shed is a delightful place to stay! The rooms are cosy and characterful - with beams showing - while also offering all mod cons (even a Nespresso machine in the well presented kitchen area). It's right on the edge of the beautiful village of Barrington (with the longest village green in England and a 16th century pub serving great food), a quick drive or train journey from Cambridge. As it's tucked away down a farm track it feels slightly more remote than it really is. The views onto fields and wildlife often emerging along the treeline next to the track also add to the sense of calm and serenity - we saw loads of pheasants as well as a kestrel and a muntjac! We didn't meet the host, but she was very helpful guiding us in over the phone and extremely responsive to any questions we had. All the essentials were all provided, such as bread, milk, butter, jam, porridge, tea, coffee, etc. but if you need anything else the village shop is close enough to walk to. We also ordered a takeaway delivery through Just Eat - another sign that you're not as remote as you might think! We would definitely stay here again if we're in the area!”

“Carolines place is really homely and at the same time nicely appointed - Kitchen had everything to make evening meals and hot breakfast. Spacious fridge! The shower has to be mentioned because its like mine at home, very powerful- and she provided a nice starting hamper so if you cannot shop before you arrive you have for tea, coffee toast fruit. ( Butter, jams & fruit 😀) Caroline was there to welcome me and show me around. Highly recommended.”
