Hotel Description

Over Bed and Breakfast near Cambridge offers spacious accommodation in a traditional village just outside the city of Cambridge. Accommodation is in our newly renovated Victorian house. The comfortable rooms have quality bathrooms, powerful showers, cotton sheets, TV and wireless broadband connection. Direct access to your room without coming through the house. Over village is a short distance from Cambridge park and ride sites and is an easy drive to Ely, Huntingdon, Cambridge city centre or the Cambridge Science Park. Ideal for business people working in Cambridge at the Science Park or other complexes. Just 3 miles from the Bucking Way Business Park, Cambridge. In contrast to the busy surroundings of a Cambridge hotel or Cambridge bed & breakfast, Over B & B offers the chance to get a taste of village life. Enjoy a choice of local pubs serving food within five minutes walking distance of the B & B, or visit the parish church of St Mary's, with its unusual gargoyles. In summer experience a quintessentially English cricket game on the village green, or in freezing winter weather set out to go ice skating in the Fens. The village is just a mile away from the River Ouse - great for countryside walks, birdwatching or fishing. Off street parking for cars and secure parking for bikes.

This B & B is one of the very best we have had the pleasure of staying at. The room and bathroom are immaculate. The bed was huge and comfy. The shower was very roomy. There was a window at each end of the room, allowing a great breeze at night time. There was a grand selection for breakfast - fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal and a fresh cooked breakfast. Helen was a most pleasant and helpful hostess. Ample parking and the beautiful picturesque village of Over. I sincerely hope we have more reason to vist Over B&B for future business!

Dear Adrian,

Thanks so much for your review. It was great to have you stay. With best wishes,


Revisit Old Haunts
We had a great stay and were made very welcome. The room was fabulous with a massive double bed. Equally breakfast was superb. It is a great location to visit Cambridge as the Guided Busway Park and Ride is only a few minutes away by car at Longstanton and buses are very frequent and run all day and evening. Overall, we were very impressed and recommend it highly.

Lovely B&b
Over the bank holiday weekend, my girlfriend and I went on a 150+ mile bicycle tour in Cambridgeshire. We were extremely tired by the time we reached Over Bed and Breakfast and we were pleased to arrive at a very nice, clean, large en-suite room, with a powerful shower and a comfortable bed. The full English breakfast was excellent (just what we needed ahead of our third consecutive day of cycling) and Helen even made us some very nice sandwiches for our lunch. I have only stayed in a couple of Bed and Breakfasts before, but this was by far the best and it was just what we needed to relax and recharge.

Top Notch
Over Bed and Breakfast is, by definition, a B&B yet I have stayed in 3 and 4 star hotels that are nowhere near as good as this. The rooms are vast and equipped/furnished to perfection. Top class en-suite fittings etc. You'd have to be a very fussy traveller (mind you, many Brits fall into that category!!) to be anything but delighted with this place!

A Lovely Place To Stay
My wife and I stayed for five nights and were impressed with the cleanliness, facilities, and level of service offered by Helen at her B&B. The bed was particularly comfortable and the bathroom facilities of a very high standard. As my parents live in the village, we decided that our toddler would sleep over at their house, and that we would skip the breakfast part of the B&B experience. Helen was wonderfully flexible about this and offered us a discount as we didn't make use of these services. A very agreeable stay, and we shall most certainly be making a return visit.

Thank you for your review. I am mystified by your comment about the toiletries. I provide very nice soap, shampoo, conditioner, moisturiser, shower caps, cotton wood pads, and a mending kit - they are in the little bit of the bathroom by the sink. I agree about getting a sign and am getting one made at the moment. Glad you enjoyed your stay overall but sorry that you had some problems.

Very friendly host. Advice given re where to eat out. Comfortable accommodation with modern fittings and furniture. Enjoyable breakfast, good start to the day. Would recommend it to others, thank you.

A Lovely Find!
Beautiful excellent value B & B. We stayed here whilst visiting our Son, who is studying at Queens College Cambridge. It was a quick and easy 10 minute drive from the centre of Cambridge. We booked the family room and our parents had the downstairs room. It was very clean and very comfortable. Breakfast on Sunday morning was delicious and outstanding quality food served in a lovely summer room, which made us forget it was a cold November day outside. Helen the owner was very helpful and friendly. We would most certainly stay again and recommend to others. If I had to find one tiny fault, I like my food served on a warmed plate...but that really was the only thing that I had a tiny winge at to myself!

A Hidden Gem Tucked Away On The Outskirts Of Cambridge
What a wonderful find. We stayed for two nights in the spacious first floor room, it was cosy, comfy and had everything you could want and Helen the proprietor was so courteous, polite yet unobtrusive,she did everything she could to help us with any information we needed. Although Over the village is very quiet it isn't far to get to the Park and Ride, a superb new system that drives round the villages connecting them to Cambridge, we loved it and will definitely be back especially for her fabulous breakfasts which she cooked to order. Thank you Helen for making our trip so memorable.

Very pleasant and relaxing stay. Owner made us feel very welcome and was helpful with planning our days out in the area. Exceptionally good room, well decorated, clean and plenty of space including sofa area. (Just need a mirror in the main bed room. Best value for money. We've stayed in places that charge more for a lot less. Highly recommended.
