Guestbook



Had a great time with four friends for a birthday celebration. The house was very clean, beautifully decorated and extremely well equipped. Lots of space with a lovely garden to soak up the sun. Elise was very friendly and communicated well. She was very understanding when we managed to lock ourselves out!! She even left a hamper and basic provisions for our arrival. Location was perfect - a 10 minute drive to Cambridge Park and Ride (Trumpington) and a short drive to the Orchard Tea room for a delightful afternoon tea. All in all superb accommodation for a perfect birthday weekend. Would definitely recommend!

Response from Elise:
Thank you Jackie for your glowing review. It was great to meet you all and I am so glad you all had a lovely weekend. Thank you too for keeping me on my toes when you locked yourselves out - at least it was easily solved and just added to the fun. I do hope to welcome you again. Best wishes. Elise.

Jackie, 

Elise’s house will forever be the gold standard by which I will judge all other properties. Everything was so thoughtfully considered and first rate. Beautifully decorated and so well equipped, we found everything to love and appreciate about this property. Nothing was missing (maybe a blender?) and so much that we thought would not be there was provided. From the welcome basket with breakfast items, fruit, and a bottle of wine, to dishwasher and laundry detergent, toiletries, and so much more. Thank you Elise. I can’t say enough good things about how special you made out stay.

Response from Elise:
Dear Joy. Thank you so much for taking the time to send such a glowing review - especially after you had such a lot of travelling in the last few days and must be extremely tired. It is very kind of you and much appreciated. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at Old Pound Yard so much and it would be a great pleasure to welcome you all if you are ever in Cambridge again. It was lovely to meet you all and I will be rushing out to buy a blender for the house in the next few days !. Thank you again for your kindness.

Joy, 

I stayed here for a weekend with friends. It is a great property. Fantastically decorated and well maintained. Plenty of space to park at the rear of the house. The village is really nice with a few pubs and restaurants only a few minutes walk away. It is only a short taxi ride into Cambridge so is conveniently located. I would definitely stay at the house again if I return to the area.

Response from Elise:

Wonderful property. Home from home spotless when we arrived and very welcoming. We had a great time. Elise met us and showed us in she was lovely and very welcoming and helpful re local facilities. A very good welcome hamper was much appreciated. Everything you would ever need was in the property. Garden was beautifully maintained and a pleasure to sit in during the stunning weather we had. Very comfortable. Very relaxing. Great location. Would thoroughly recommend and if in area would have no hesitation in staying again.

Response from Elise:
Thank you for your review Kay. It was lovely to meet you and your guests and I am so glad you had a lovely weekend.

Kay, 

Just spent a lovely weekend at Old Pound Yard. This was our second visit and it was very relaxing as I knew the kitchen was well equipped for cooking and that everyone in our group would be very comfortable in the lounge, bedrooms and bathrooms. The house is immaculate and so tastefully decorated.
We used both the nearby station and the bus link and appreciated lots of car parking space. Stress free travel into Cambridge and into London.
Elise was very kind, and accommodated my additional requests.
Lots to see in the area, so looking forward to going back again in the near future.

Response from Elise:
Thank you Grace for taking the time to send us a review. It is a pleasure to welcome new guests to our property and extra special when people choose to come back again. It was lovely to welcome you back and know that you all had a great weekend. Thank you again for your kind words and we look forward to any future visits.

Grace, 

Excellent accommodation!! Our group of three mature (matter of opinion) couples stayed for four nights in March 2018, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The house is well equipped, spacious, tastefully decorated and is handy for both bus and train trips into central Cambridge. The house is private with little overlooking, there is good attention to detail in the furnishings and equipment, the bedding is very comfortable, and there is parking (not easily available in self catering accommodation in central Cambridge)

Would we stay here again ? Undoubtedly yes..
Stuart

Thank you Ian. So glad we were able to provide a comfortable base for your working week. We look forward to welcoming you again. Elise.

Ian J., 

First of all The House is absolutely gorgeous, it is so clean and fresh you would think you were the first people to ever stay there. Beds are comfy, slept like a log. The local area is divine, offering a peaceful little haven, but with a Pub and little shops for all you need to escape your daily life. Then Cambridge itself is just fab....go see for yourself. Perfect!!!

Lovely house perfect location - seven minute train journey into Cambridge. Two pubs over the road and local shops five minute walk away. Had a really good weekend."

Response from Elise:
So glad you all enjoyed your stay and were able to take advantage of our great location. Hopefully next time you come the weather will be kinder and you can spend more time in the garden. Thank you for your improvement suggestion in the bathroom. We will get on to that right away. It was lovely to meet you and thank you for being such lovely guests. Elise."

Stephanie B., 

Beautiful 3 bedroom house with lovely enclosed garden. Every need has been considered from the well- equipped kitchen to the tasteful furnishings in every room. Thank you Elise for such thought and care. Short walk to two pubs and a small grocery store. Bank, Deli etc. also in the village. Short drive to larger supermarkets and Cambridge."

"Thank you Louise for your lovely review. I am delighted you all had such a wonderful weekend. The glorious weather certainly helped. Thank you for being lovely guests and I do look forward to welcoming you all again in the future. Kind regards. Elise.

Louise D, 

My family stayed at Old Pound Yard for a weekend whilst visiting Cambridge. The house is obviously very newly decorated to a very high standard and is immaculate. The kitchen is kitted out with high quality appliances and is well supplied with everything you need to cook or bake. The décor is completely co-ordinated throughout with lovely art and lighting features. There is lots of space for 6 people to lounge around the house, sit in the very large garden or sleep! With 6 people it is good to have the two bathrooms and the cloakroom downstairs. The owner is very thoughtful and has tried to think of everything you may need for a comfortable stay. She lives next door, so if anything more is needed, she is available. It is very accessible to Cambridge which is a short drive away or better still the train is close by! I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Cambridge and intend to return myself!"


Response from Elise:

"It was lovely to meet you all and thank you for your kind review. Thank you for appreciating all the work we have put into making our property a special place to visit. Your feedback is very important to us as we are really keen to create a lovely place for our guests to stay. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. All good wishes. Elise

Grace A., 

The house was very well appointed, the owners had really thought about what we might need and provided extras not always found in holiday let properties e.g. a welcome hamper and spare toiletries. The house is located on the edge of Cambridge but in a village with a variety of pubs, restaurants and shops. We had a lovely stay."

Response from Elise:

"Thank you very much for taking the time to send us a review and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. It was lovely that you enjoyed visiting our local pub and appreciated all that Shelford has to offer as well as enjoying your visit to the Duxford Air Show. We do hope to welcome you again in the future. Kind regards. Elise.

Jan W., 

Thank you for such a wonderful stay. We all loved the house. Such a lovely place to come and spend a weekend away. Everything about our stay at the house was wonderful!
Elise was incredibly helpful from the start offering us information sheets on how to travel to the house, what facilities there were and local information.
The house is beautifully furnished with everything you could possibly need and more - even a cake stand for our afternoon tea!
Each room is beautiful with stylish decor and the garden is lovely and has a patio to sit out on.
We were welcomed with a hamper of goodies and a fridge with all the basics which was very generous.
There are shops and a pub nearby plus the train to Cambridge is a few minutes walk away.

I cannot recommend a stay here enough, we only wish we had stayed for a week instead of just the weekend!
Thank you for a memorable weekend away,"
Grace
