The Granary, Chalk Farm, Babraham

6 miles south of Cambridge

Self-catering studio style cottage

Ideal for 2-4 people

Bookable on a nightly or weekly basis





If you are looking for a holiday cottage close to Cambridge or are planning a short break in Cambridge, the Granary could be just what you want. It is a 17th century piggery converted to provide a comfortable home-from-home for the tourist or business visitor, offering complete privacy and much more space than most hotel bedrooms at an affordable price.


Unusually for self-catering accommodation close to Cambridge, The Granary can be let on a per night or per week basis (minimum stay 2 nights) for those planning to visit Cambridge for a short stay, either on holiday or business. We are also able to offer special rates for longer term (1-2 month) lets. It can be ideal for those relocating to Cambridge who prefer self-catering accommodation.


The Granary is designed for two people, but will accommodate 3-4 with the futon but please note that the Granary is studio accommodation, so is one large room, and there is no separate bedroom. It stands in the grounds of Chalk Farmhouse, a Grade II listed building said to be one of the oldest properties in the quiet pretty village of Babraham. The Granary is a comfortable peaceful haven, yet only 15 minutes from Cambridge (a bit more in the rush hour), 25 minutes from Stansted Airport, and about 65 miles from London. We are also happy for you to bring your dog, but please be aware that we have chickens as well as cats and a dog already on site, so your dog will need to be kept under control.


The George, a 16th century inn next door serves lunch and dinner every day, and there are many more pubs and restaurants in nearby villages.
