Peaceful rustic retreats with luxurious home comforts


Crafts Hill Barn is a converted Victorian granary set in 5 acres with a large pond and paddock. The associated brick outbuildings once housed livestock and farm machinery. We converted them into comfortable guest accommodation, with exposed roof timbers and original brick work. The buildings are now incredibly cosy and comfortable, with modern country style interiors while a few quirky touches nod to their original use.

The pondside cabin was next to be upgraded and now is a delightful space right at the water’s edge. Guests enjoy a morning wild swim before a coffee on the jetty.

Our next project is renovating a railway carriage that once housed our lambs. It will boast an outdoor woodfired tub in the woods with sunset views – bliss!

Only an hour out of London and within easy reach of the Midlands, Cambridge is a magical place to visit. In the city the architecture and history surround you, while independent shops jostle with all the best high street and designer names.

We are situated 5 miles from the city in a very quiet village but with easy access to main roads and facilities. Within half an hours drive there are many country houses, market towns and footpaths to explore.

A stay at Crafts Hill Barn offers tranquillity and privacy in a rural setting within easy reach of stunning Cambridge and other attractions. Whether you’re planning a romantic break, visiting friends and family or travelling with work, staying with us will provide you with a special place to call home.

We look forward to welcoming you,

Jo and Tim
