Reviews of Bittern Cottage

"Hi just returned home from lovely 2 week holiday at Bittern Cottage, we all had a great time. Cottage is excellent ( home from home ) garden so peaceful and quiet, our dog spent most of his time outside. Owners Sarah and Graeme were both very kind and helpful. Wicken Fen is on the doorstep, lovely walks, Ely, Cambridge and St Ives are all worth visit. Lovely walk called The Three Churches worth doing, starting at Moulton ( Suffolk ) about 12 miles from Cottage Linda, Andy & Remus ( Newcastle upon Tyne ) July 2017"
