Self-Catering Reviews

The cottage had everything to make staying away from home enjoyable with little extras like milk and juice in the fridge, tea and coffee etc.. Even dog bowls and bags etc just in case. The pub opposite serves the most amazing food. And location wise the cottage is a little off the beaten track, but Ely is only 20 mins drive, while the beach is around an hour away.

1 Laburnum Cottage, was just as previous visitors had stated in the visitors' book - clean, cosy and comfortable - the beds were superb.. How unfortunate then that the outward appearance is rather shabby. Discarded rubbish, un-clipped hedges and, what appears to be deep water un-fenced. Maybe a few more checks could be made between each letting, for example on the in-house appliances. The toaster tray needed emptying before use. The filter in the tumbler drier was packed solid with fluff - a very serious fire hazard. The dishwasher couldn't drain properly due to scale build-up in its filter, this we cleaned as best we could. The TV had not been re-tuned since the last update. Nevertheless, the holiday was an enjoyable one, the pub across the road was a good choice for meals - and certain members of staff gave an excellent service.

We've stayed 3 times now & 3 times in the lamb & flag because the cottages were not available but intend to stay at Laburnham whenever we can in rhe near future .. Excellent food at the pub always made to feel very welcome.

This cottage was 15 minutes, 10 miles from Ely in a quite location opposite the Flag and Lamb pub in Welney village. The cottage was clean although some cobwebs were seen next to the cupboard in the living area. Concerns to us were that there was no hot water on arrival as the boiler was not switched on, despite the information booklet stating that this would be on and the immersion heater would provide plentiful hot water. Washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets were not provided despite being assured by the owner that these were included in a phone call prior to arrival. There were light bulbs out in the dining area that had not been replaced and no rubbish bags were provided despite instructions for the refuse/ recycleable collection being provided. We had a very enjoyable stay but these comments are provided to improve the enjoyment for future guests.

This is a good little cottage in a good location. The cottage is old and does show a wee bit wear and tear but that is to be expected. We were there for a full week and did make full use of the kitchen facilities for breakfast and lunch. There are only 2 small niggles, none of which would put me off booking the cottage again, and that would be the double bed's mattress is past its best and should be replaced although the size of the bed was excellent. The other niggle was the hobbit sized ironing board (only 2ft in length and a table top version), trying to iron a grown mans shirt proved difficult as well as long skirts. Normally wouldn't worry about creased clothes but we were down visiting relatives for a special birthday and going out for a posh do and these items were crushed in our cases. There is plenty of room in the cottage to store a normal iron board so did wonder why the hobbit one was there.... The Lamb and Flag pub which really is just across the road does excellent food and has wonderful staff.

We had a very pleasant holiday at 1 Laburnum Cottage in the village of Welney. We found the cottage to be quite and comfortable, just what we were looking for. The owner and the local contact provided us with all information about the cottage, the village and possible places of interest. To sum it up: the perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday. Recommended! Furthermore we liked the Pub (The Lamb & Flag) next door. Highly recommended place with charming staff and excellent food.

A very comfortable cottage, warm and cosy and in a good location for seeing Cambridgeshire. Good walks on the flat if walking hills is a problem.
