Five Islands House

Five Islands House was our old family home, which has now been refurbished to a high standard and is able to sleep six people.

Sitting within its own gardens, the house offers beautiful views overlooking Homersfield Lake.

It also allows us to offer the house to families with children as the garden is fully fenced off.

Weekly bookings run from Friday to Friday. We take bookings for either one week or two week periods.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Here is an an example of why Cambridge is such a unique place to visit
