Gravel Farm is a collection of four individually-designed self-catering cottages located on our 12-acre family-owned farm just five miles south of the historic Cathedral City of Ely, and a short drive from both Cambridge and the famous racing town of Newmarket.

Whether you're looking for a break in the countryside or you're working in the area, Gravel Farm makes an ideal base from which to explore and access East Anglia.

​Recently renovated to a high standard, our four light and airy self-catering cottages range from a cosy one-bed to a large and contemporary four-bed. Each property has their own garden and all are powered and heated by the latest ground, air or solar-sourced technology. We can sleep up to 18 guests in total throughout the four cottages.

​Nestled in an enviable rural location alongside the River Great Ouse and with stunning views across the Fenland countryside, Gravel Farm offers you fishing, cycling, canoeing, walking and bird-watching on your doorstep.

Dog and child-friendly, our cottages offer you a warm, cosy and stylish home-from-home; making them an ideal destination for couples, friends or families looking for a countryside retreat.

The bright interior is welcoming, and the distinctive decorative features are picked out in a calming Nordic palette. This high specification, luxury, spacious cottage sits in a lovely location in the fenlands of Cambridgeshire and is a state of the art ECO build.

Inside Willow Cottage you will find a large open plan kitchen diner with a stylish dining table. The fabulous log burner is a real focal point of the large open plan living area, with a generous starter basket of wood and kindling supplied.

Willow cottage sleeps 8-10 adults, all on ground level.

We have two luxurious master bedrooms with super king-sized beds each with their very own dressing room and en suite with shower cubicle, with two further private bedrooms, again both with comfy super king-sized beds.

All beds are zip and link so can be made up into 4 super-kings or 8 singles or a mixture of the two depending on your requirements. 

All bedrooms are complete with pocket sprung mattresses, furnished with deluxe linens, cushions and throws promising a blissful uninterrupted night’s sleep, making it even more tempting to enjoy an early night or a lazy morning in bed!

In addition to the bedrooms, we have added a comfy double loaf sofa bed to the TV room, which now doubles up as an extra bedroom should you need sleeping space for 10. This will be charged as an extra and at £200 per stay and you will need to add this to your booking or no linen and towels will be provided.

You will be contacted prior to your arrival for a £400 security deposit (no funds will be taken from your account, but a hold will be placed on your card for this amount for the duration of your stay).
