A bed and breakfast with class....
My stay at Lynwood House was an excellent experience. The hosts have a lovely, recently renovated bed and breakfast that has everything a visitor needs, including 2 resident cats! Breakfasts were wonderful, with many choices including omelettes and a full cooked breakfast if desired. The location is about 30 minute walk to the city centre, but may be a bit far for someone with mobility issues, but there was parking available, and buses went by the house often.

Don’t be fooled by the outside appearance. This very modern and updated bed and breakfast was very comfortable. We would recommend staying at this place if you don’t mind the pleasant wAlk to the center of town.

My home in Cambridge
Such a warm welcome at this lovely b&b! Such a beautiful, comfortable room! Such enjoyable, beautifully prepared breakfasts catering for my gluten free needs. I loved my week's stay in this lovely home and thoroughly enjoyed my time with my lovely hosts. My heartfelt thanks and warmest regards to them.

Delicious Breakfast and Convenient Location
Highlights of staying at Lynwood House include their delicious breakfasts. They provide fresh berries, cereal, yogurt and omelets to order. The dining area is clean and bright. Other highlights include the comfortable bed, room decor, and updated bathroom. Julie, the owner was pleasant and helpful with directions and suggestions. Lynwood House is in a convenient location as it is within walking distance of downtown Cambridge (about 20 minutes) and is close to the Cam River. Like many British B&B's, Lynwood House appears smaller on the outside than it actually is; it is quite spacious on the inside. The only drawback to staying at Lynwood House is that does not have any sort of den/meeting room/gathering area. The dining room is locked after breakfast. Thus, there is nowhere to sit and read a paper and it is not easy to have a family/group meeting or even to meet other guests. Perhaps the dining room could be left unlocked.
