Thank you for your review, it was very kind. Sorry about the early shower person, unfortunately things always sound louder when it's very quiet, which it is here... The unstable wifi comes with the area unfortunately. most of the time there is good service but streaming from netflix takes up a lot of bandwidth and when you are not the... More

Beautifully furnished rooms in a lovely rural setting but not too far from Ely and Cambridge. Nice garden to sit in watching the sun go down. Excellent breakfast cooked to order and served in a truly unique setting, up stairs in a converted barn.

This was our second visit and I'm sure we'll be back again. Rooms are comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean and breakfast is freshly cooked and delicious. It's a good spot for a visit to Cambridge or Ely although you do need a car. What's not to like?

I stayed for two nights at the Grove Barn. It was clean, well-manage with plenty of room and quiet. Good shower. Good internet connection. Joanne was very helpful on where to go for dinner, etc. There is a fabulous restaurant 5 minutes walk away. I liked her outdoor garden area to sit and enjoy the autumn weather. I'd stay again.

Don't book the loft room unless you are less than 5ft tall. The sloping ceiling makes it impossible to stand up in the bathroom. Rural location very restful. Not too far from Ely or Cambridge. Bedroom fittings good, but beware of sloping ceiling in the night.

Good afternoon, thank you for your comments. As of this weekend the loft room if closed for refurbishment which will include a dormer window, this will double the size of the bathroom and it will no longer have a sloping ceiling. I can quite see this room as being the most popular as when it is finished it will be... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the Grove room. It was clean and Joanne provides lots of added extras (umbrella, torch, DVD 's). The breakfast was excellent and was of a high quality. The poached eggs were delicious and cooked to perfection. It is rural so you need a car but I wouldn't have to think twice about staying here... More

Staying the night at Grove Barn was as very special part of a weekend away exploring Ely.We were made very welcome when we arrived and the room and its facilities was excellent. Breakfast the next morning was delicious and set us up for the day ahead. We will certainly return.

We stayed at Grove Barns for 1 night around mid September. The B&B is located in a peaceful location a short drive from the centre of Ely. We had the Grove Room, which is an end room and was very quiet. We were also able to park our car just outside the room which was very handy. There is also... More

We booked this very last minute and had a good welcome, despite Joanne needing to be somewhere else. She even booked us a table at the busy local pub (The Anchor). Our room was immaculate and the breakfast amazing and unhurried. She even cooked my kippers without the normal advance warning. Thoroughly recommended.

Thank Louise L
