Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The Cob is a self contained, newly renovated characterful detached annex to the left of our house, The Old Bakery. It is adjacent to well established "The Bakehouse" Airbnb.

Situated in an idyllic quiet position overlooking historic Thriplow's village green.

Just a minute's walk and you reach the award winning community run gastro pub or well stocked village shop.

Only 8 miles from Cambridge, so perfect for visiting or working in the city or the surrounding area and 2 miles from IWM Duxford.

The space
The Cob is adjacent to "The Bakehouse" Airbnb which offers accommodation for a further 2 adults. On the property we also have "The Barn", suitable for 2 adults.

We have renovated The Cob with loving care and attention to detail and to the highest possible standard - specifically with Airbnb in mind. It is characterful and historic having large original beams and Georgian windows.

The accommodation is a spacious open plan single storey barn. It includes a King size bed, a Roberts radio, a sofa, table/chairs (a perfect workspace), wall mounted Smart TV, a kitchen area (with built in oven & hob, microwave, fridge, washer-dryer, Nespresso coffee machine) and an en suite bathroom (with large walk in shower, basin, toilet and mirror with shaver socket).

Where you’ll be

Thriplow, United Kingdom

Thriplow is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 and is laid out as a loose figure-of-eight of lanes with a lattice of footpaths and green fields between. While the oldest dated cottage is 1687,
there is much that is older and deep seated in the past too.
The footpaths take you through fields, woods and orchid meadows; in spring, the whole village is awash with daffodils.
Indeed Thriplow is famous for its annual Daffodil Weekend and Country Fair: it’s a village fair that attracts up to 10,000 visitors for the weekend who come to enjoy a range of rural attractions, stalls and village hospitality and is reported as being one of the best loved charity events in Cambridgeshire!
The village is an active and thriving community with many village groups, interests and activities, including a cricket club where you can watch cricket during the summer.

Our pub (the award-winning The Green Man) is just a 2 minute walk from The Bakehouse, across The Green. It is a community owned pub that is run by Alex and Mike and they’ve built up an amazing reputation in the local area for offering both fresh, seasonal food and Tapas too. If you’d like to eat there during your stay we recommend you book.
Thriplow also has a community run well-stocked Village Shop, where you can drop in for a coffee and perhaps fresh baked croissants or pastries too.

My husband, Richard, and I run our own business from home. We have a son who has started working in London and a daughter who has just graduated from University. We have lived in The Old Bakery for 20 years – starting off living in a mobile home in the garden for 18 months whilst we renovated the house! We have now completed refurbishing The Bakehouse and are very excited to welcome Airbnb guests.

During your stay

Richard and I live in The Old Bakery, next to The Cob, and so we’re normally on hand to help and chat as much or as little as you'd like.

You should find it easy to get hold of us as we run a business from home, so we're used to constantly checking emails and texts too.

There is also a file in The Cob with local information, including some suggested walks directly from your front door through to information about shops, places to eat, transport options and, of course, what to see and do in Cambridge.
