The Thorpe Guesthouse Information

Description

Cambridge's best kept secret! The Thorpe Guest House is situated in the beautiful riverside village of Hemingford Grey. Just 3 miles from the picturesque market town of St Ives, 4 miles from Huntingdon and 14 miles to Cambridge, this is a wonderful base to explore East Anglia. The house itself offers modern luxury accommodation set within an unusual contemporary architectural framework providing plenty of room to relax and unwind. Residents have use of the large Garden Lounge overlooking the garden for breakfast in the mornings unless of course they want to use the patio.. weather permitting! Our rooms are comfortable, contemporary spacious double rooms that we can also offer as twin rooms and they benefit from their own Ensuite facility with a walk in power shower. They enjoy large comfortable super kingsize beds and have their own flat screen TV's with Freeview and radio capability. Tea and Coffee making facilities are available in the rooms. This pretty village and the surrounding area is dominated by The River Great Ouse. Why not spend a morning walking the infamous ‘Thicket’, following the river from the Grey to the Abbots, our twin village, and then on to Houghton Mill, an English Heritage site, before striking out for St Ives, nee Slepe, the historic riverside market town with it’s world famous Oliver Cromwell Bridge, before heading back across the meadows to the Hemingfords. Reward yourselves for this 6.5 mile trek with a well earned repast at the Cock Public House, voted Pub of the Year 2013 by the good Pubs Guide - don’t worry, it is a 2 minute walk from the house! Even closer is the Hemingford Sport & Social Club which welcomes our residents. Enjoy a drink at the Bar, watch live Sports on TV or just relax on the balcony in the evening sun and take in the Tennis, Bowls, Cricket or Squash.For those who wish the gym facility welcomes our guests at a nominal price. Whether for business or pleasure we do hope you enjoy your stay with us
