Self-Catering in Ely
In the unique atmosphere of the Fens' landscape of huge skies, spectacular sunsets and fishing rivers, this cluster of quality barn conversions is the perfect place to relax and unwind. This tranquil spot boasts footpath walks on the owners' 280 acre arable farm, an undercover courtyard and an indoor heated swimming pool and hot tub. Nearby, the beautiful clear waters of the Rivers Wissey and the Great Ouse offer good fishing, and the nature reserves at Wicken Fen and Welney are a must for bird lovers. Cyclists will enjoy the miles of quiet, signed country lanes and the coastal marshes of the Wash afford long, peaceful walks. Ely (6 miles), occupying the largest island in the Fens, has a history dating back to Hereward the Wake and, later, Oliver Cromwell. Its superb 11th century cathedral is surrounded by monastic buildings, medieval gateways and narrow streets leading down to the marina and river walks. King's Lynn and Cambridge are easily accessible. Shops, riverside inns and restaurants at Littleport (3 miles).
