    “A lovely stay”

    We stayed for one night, and had a lovely time. Very friendly and helpful host, fantastic breakfast, and a room that has everything you need. We also appreciated the cuddly dogs!

    By Road:
    From A142: The turn off to Coveney is between Witchford and Sutton. Drive carefully over the little bridge and follow the road into the village. Go straight ahead until you get to a T-junction with a turn-off to the right back to Ely. The Old School is straight ahead of you with the entrance into the school yard on Main Street.
    From A10: The turn off to Coveney is on the A10 between the Ely roundabout and the Little Downham roundabout. The road is mainly single track with passing places. Follow the road until you get into the village slightly up a hill. On top there is a T-junction with The Old School on your right. Drive round the ether green with the chestnut tree on your right to get better access to the gate into the school yard.

    NOTE: We are NOT the School House at 10 Main Street! Please be aware that our dogs might be running loose so please come to the glass doors and ring the bell so that we can meet and greet you and shut the dogs away if necessary, so that you can bring your car into the School yard.

    The nearest main railway station is Ely. There is a taxi rank at the station or transport can be arranged.
