We are in the heart of Great Shelford, just 4 miles from the centre of Cambridge with excellent transport links. The village has a deli/coffee shop, Chinese and Indian restaurants and nice pubs. Shelford train station is less than 10 minutes walk away. Journey time to Cambridge is 5 minutes.
The first floor flat is self-contained, comprising a living area, kitchen, kingsize bed, bathroom, garden seating area and parking. Our flat is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.
The flat is on the first floor. It is light and airy with a good sized kitchen area with washing machine, sink, fridge with freezer compartment, extendable dining table, microwave, oven with halogen hob, toaster and kettle. Condiments, tea and coffee are provided. Bread, butter, jam, milk and cereal will be provided for your first night's stay - even dairy free and gluten free alternatives, if requested in advance. These are also available in the village shops for longer stays!
There is a flat screen TV and DVD player.
We have a kingsize bed with 100% cotton hypoallergenic bedding. The build-in wardrobe has full-length hanging and internal and external shelving.
There is an extendable desk with lamp and wifi.
The bathroom has a bath for that relaxing soak and a shower over.
Downstairs in the conservatory access area there is a sofa for additional seating which looks out over the garden. In the garden itself there is a bench which catches the afternoon sun - ideal for that early evening gin and tonic!
The flat is accessed from the back of our house, down a side passage to the left of our garage. It has its own entrance through sliding doors and is completely self contained. We have access through your conservatory to the garage but we don't use that access when we have guests so that you have complete privacy.
Interaction with guests
We will aim to meet guests on arrival, but there is 24 hour access if we are not available. We live in the main house adjoining, but both work so are not around all the time. We will respond as soon as we can to any issues that arise. Someone is usually at home in the evenings. We are happy to try to help, but won't disturb you unless you contact us.
Information about places to eat, theatres, local attractions will be available in the flat.

I am a violin teacher and my husband is an opera singer. We love travelling and classical music, art, theatre, gardens and spending time with family and friends. As hosts, we will try to make your stay with us as enjoyable as possible, just as we have enjoyed staying in other AirBnb properties!
