This is a charming flat in a grade II listed building which has been sensitively restored and modernised and is right in the centre of Cambridge: main shops and colleges c. 5-10 minutes' walk. Proprietors live 50m away should you need us. All facilities available. Within 5 minutes you can be walking along the famous 'Backs' and you can virtually see the river from our window. See: www.bellsapartments.co.uk The flat is a duplex which has one large bedroom per se with a king sized bed and offers more than enough space for an extra single bed should a couple wish to have their child in the same room. The main room has a kitchen/dining area at one end and the living room at the other: this contains a double sofa bed which allows a family of 5 to stay....This is a charming flat in a grade II listed building which has been sensitively restored and modernised and is right in the centre of Cambridge: main shops and colleges c. 5-10 minutes' walk.

Powerful shower, washing and drying machine, wi-fi, hairdryer, TV, DVD, CD, radio. Many local pubs and restaurants and cafes nearby and the folk and art museum are in the same street just 100 m away! 150m to the punts and quayside too! The flat is very light: windows everywhere! Seven of them! You get a nice view at breakfast/ and you can have a nice through-breeze in the summer! We are one of only four TRULY CENTRAL FLATS in Cambridge and yet we are very reasonably priced. This has enabled people who need a longish stay (say, to research for writing a book or to visit relatives from afar, like Australia) to come to Cambridge without breaking the bank. And, with a longish booking we always offer a discount without being asked. Most of our customers are return customers, including an elderly couple who have been coming every year since 1988 when we opened! That is our best advert! Thank you for your kind attention. We do hope that we will see you and if you have any questions about Cambridge (cheapest punts, for example) or need a doctor, more towels, a taxi, etc you can always ask us. We are always happy to help. See reviews.More
