This property has featured in ITV's 'Get Packing,' although we chose Queensberry from two properties advertised in the 'Little Green Book,' the bed and breakfast nationwide brochure.

Our destination was Ely,so we wanted somewhere reasonably close to enable us time to visit as many places as possible.

Queensberry is a period house on the outer edge of Fordham village. It is situated near Newmarket (horse-racing centre) as well as being close to Ely, Cambridge, Bury St Edmunds, Duxford War Museum, National Trust properties and other places of interest.

Jan and Malcolm are the proprietors who provide a homely atmosphere and welcome for their guests. Malcolm was a former amateur jockey and is a tour guide for the National Horse-racing Museum.

When we arrived we were shown to a cottage in the grounds with two floors. Our room was on the upper floor with a small shower room and the use of a galley kitchen for tea facilities or using the microwave, along with the use of a fridge. Along the corridor from us was a suite with a double bedroom, en suite shower and a sitting/dining room. Our room was clean and comfortable but we would have preferred it to be a little more spacious as it felt rather 'cramped.' There are larger rooms, so its best to ask when booking! The cost was £80 per night with a continental breakfast. I thought it strange that there was only a continental breakfast on offer, but later learned that you could have a cooked breakfast, but that would cost £5 extra. An apology was given for failing to disclose this option upon booking. Breakfast is in the garden room and served between 7 – 9am. We had warm croissants, selection of cereals and yoghurts, toast with various jams and cheeses and a variety of fresh fruit. Freshly squeezed oranges were available, if wanted. The coffee was good – with hot milk, as requested.

Good location with plenty of room for parking. Warm and welcoming hosts, just wished we had had a bigger room!
