Mr Mccabe, August 2020
Lovely place, beautiful surroundings, perfect for me and my pooch whilst we were attending a course, has everything you could need, great to make own meals, comfy bed and sofas, low sloping ceilings but wasn't a problem for me.. Would defo return
Mr Marney, November 2019
The most comfortable bed we have slept in away from home.. Don't normally sleep well when away but slept like a log here.
Ideally placed for exploring Cambridgeshire - a very peaceful spot. Village shops and pubs very good too.
Mrs Crumplin, October 2019
Great location for access to Cambridge and surrounding area good walks and lovely scenery.. Studio was compact but very well stocked and comfortable with 2 big settees. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly (including the dogs) the box of chocs and great treat. We had a great stay and would recommend for couples looking to explore this part of England
Mrs Martin, September 2019
It’s a good place from which to explore the surrounding area
Great quiet location off a country lane but only a short walk into the village with two dog friendly pubs for evening meals.. Nice country walks just down the lane.
Nice cosy accommodation with everything you need along with friendly helpful owners.
The Studio was a great venue for our needs.. We were in the area visiting an elderly relative and so required a place for a few nights stay that was comfortable but also value for money. The studio was cosy, warm (we loved the under-floor heating) and well equipped. The owner Elaine was very friendly and helpful. The local nature reserve fenland area was perfect for walking our dog and the village of Fulbourn was in walking distance with handy shops and pubs. We would definitely book again.
Stayed whilst my wife was in Addenbrookes having major surgery.. The cottage is warm and comfortable and the owners are very friendly and helpful, thank-you Elaine and Geoff.
There are many walks very near and the main routes are easily accessible for traveling around the Cambridgeshire attractions making it a perfect choice for holidays in this area.
I've just spent a very enjoyable week at The Studio, helped by really nice weather. Fulbourn is a very attractive village with two pubs, a village shop and a 'chippy'. It's well situated not only for exploring Cambridgeshire but also south Norfolk and north Suffolk. I will certainly return - hopefully when the roadworks on the A14 are completed !
Very nice accommodation, very friendly hosts, lovely village with two good pubs..
The Studio is quite small & compact but the upstairs living area would not suit tall people! It suited our needs and I loved the surroundings & gardens. It was perfect for our trip to Duxford air show and there are good walks at the end of the lane. We had a lovely peaceful week, the owners were very friendly & helpful and we would definitely return.
Great location for a look-around Cambridge area.. Elaine & Geoff great hosts and willing to help their guest strangers in paradise. Nature of the building must have presented design and renovation challenges , but these were well met. Loved our time there and would like to return.
Excellent location and hospitable hosts.. Plenty of walking in the local area combined with pubs and a Co-op within a few minutes' walking distance. We enjoyed our stay and feel the studio represents good value for money.
Perfect location for us.. Quiet lovely surroundings.
This property has surely not been inspected? Only toilet is 1.5 metres from cooker, behind sliding door that wouldn’t close, let alone lock. Sink in loo too small to wash face in.
Equipment in kitchen cast-offs... odd glasses ( not all x2), one egg cup, one cup size battered cafetière etc.
Weeds growing on patio.
Location good, but never “ romantic “!
Have 2 further bookings with Sykes in 2018. Hoping for so much better.......
We found the cottage to be very well equipped and very cosy and warm.. It was ideally located for trips into Cambridge and the surrounding area and is within walking distance of the local shops and pubs. We have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to our family and friends.
A little difficult to find--road signs not good , a bit more detail near to would help!
Location was easy to access from main routes, wonderful dog walks and a village with all facilities. Cambridge was just a short drive to the centre or to one of the park and ride parks.

A home from home..
I am staying here for a couple of weeks. What an amazing place. The owners are lovely nothing is too much trouble.
The chocolates on arrival are a nice touch. Close to the village and Park and Ride into Cambridge.
Would thoroughly recommend thus place to stay.
A fabulous place to stay, we were made to feel so welcome. I stayed there for two weeks and didn't want to leave.

Brilliant location, warm and accommodating hosts; everything you needed was readily available.. We really enjoyed our time there.
The studio was very well equipped and we liked that it was on a split level. It was in a great location and there were some lovely walks right on the door-step. The apartment wasn't far from the Cambridge Park and Ride so getting into the centre was easy enough, although we preferred being away from the hustle and bustle of the centre.
The owners were very welcoming and we enjoying fussing their three pooches!
We had a very relaxed time and were sorry we couldn't stay longer.
Mrs Gentle, July 2015
Very friendly owners, very flexible in accepting two well behaved dogs.. Brilliant location for ramble walks through woods and totally natural fields with wild orchids and wild garlic smells as you continue. Superb quiet location in the countryside with local access to shops.

Very convenient to Cambridge and lovely setting.. The owners of the studio were very friendly and helpful.
We had an enjoyable stay in the Studio. Owner David abercrombie was very friendly and helpful. Fulbourn is a pleasant village within easy reach of Cambridge. The studio was very well-equipped. The one slight drawback was the sloping ceiling upstairs, which means you have to be careful not to bang your head when walking around - but this is a minor quibble. Overall the accommodation was fine.
Warm welcoming owners, perfect quiet country location with only a short walk to the village shops and pubs, clean, comfortable well equipped accommodation, a very relaxing holiday.. Just perfect.

The Studio is a lovely rural retreat in the Fens that is very quiet but far from isolated being on the outskirts of a pretty village and close to Cambridge and Ely. The hospitality cannot be faulted with wine and chocolates on arrival and two of the friendliest dogs to greet you.The accommodation is to a high standard with lots of lovely little touches such as DVDs,games and books making it feel very homely. There was a huge folder of useful information about park and ride for example as well as local shops, restaurants and places of interest. WiFi availability was a bonus. The layout feels spacious with the open plan space upstairs and kitchen downstairs and the bathroon, though bijou, works well. It is ideal for a couple and the only downside would be that it is not suitable for people with mobility problems.The kitchen is very well equipped and the washing machine helpful after muddy walks.Our week went all too quickly and we would love to do a return visit.

The owners treated us like family, nothing was a bother, especially when the weather changed and we requested the heating to be turned up! Greetings from the family dogs each time when we left and returned each day. The thatched cottage in which the owners lived was a dream house.
The property is in a good quiet location but is still very near the city.

We stayed one week at The Studio and enjoyed every minute. The accommodation was fully equipped with everything one would be likely to need. The owners were extremely nice and helpful.
We would certainly stay at The Studio again in future.
Very quiet location, adjacent to a lovely nature reserve with walks.. The accommodation was very good, and the hosts were very friendly and amenable. Nothing was too much trouble. Our little dog had a great time. We would certainly return in the future.

The peaceful setting was ideal and the hospitality of the owners was very good and included fresh eggs from their chickens. The kitchen was very user friendly and the garden was good for quiet contemplation. We had a very good week!
We particularly liked the idyllic location of the property, central enough for getting around and yet a complete sanctuary when chill out time was called for.

We particularly liked the idyllic location of the property, central enough for getting around and yet a complete sanctuary when "chill out" time was called for..
We had a fantastic holiday. The Studio is very well equipped. The owners of The Studio were very welcoming and also gave us good information on places to visit and to eat. I would recommend The Studio cottage to everyone.
