Gravel Farm comprises four stylish and luxurious self-catering properties located on our family-owned Fenland farm, just five miles south of the historic Cathedral City of Ely in Cambridgeshire.


A beautiful, secluded haven that dog and child-friendly and close to Cambridge and Newmarket.  It is perfect for holidays, business travel, celebrations and mini-breaks.

​Formerly agricultural buildings on a disused farmyard site, our four individually-designed cottages have been renovated to a high standard and consist of two cosy one-bed studios, a light and airy two bed and a contemporary and accessible five-bed eco-house


Please note that we are currently only taking limited bookings in Willow Cottage - please enquire for more info. 


Four Individually-Designed Cottages

Each cottage is dog and child-friendly and has its own parking spaces, private secure garden for your exclusive use, individual high speed internet connection and a Nordic-style hot tub for hire (at an extra charge and by prior arrangement).  All are powered and heated by the latest ground, air or solar-sourced technology.

Close to Cambridge and with easy access from London, Gravel Farm is nestled in an enviable rural location alongside the River Great Ouse. It boasts wonderful views across the Fens and allows you to reconnect with nature through walking, fishing, canoeing, paddleboarding and birdwatching - all of which are on your doorstep.  No need to get in your car!  






Comfortable cottages with light and airy interiors

 As a small family run business, we focus on the things that matter to our guests and do them well. The accommodation combines luxury with supreme comfort. You will experience high quality mattresses, stylish bathrooms and light and airy interiors along with excellent levels of cleanliness and care delivered by our friendly local team.

  The perfect accommodation for friends, family and dogs!

​​​​Child and dog-friendly, Gravel Farm offers you a warm, cosy and stylish ‘home from home’ with space for all the family or a group of friends; an ideal base from which to explore the Fenland area as well as East Anglia, host a wonderful party… or from which to kick back and relax!


The joy of Gravel Farm is that you can do as much or as little as you like, stay and soak up the natural beauty of the Fens or explore the local area. There is plenty to see and do - take a look at our map for walking routes and local attractions.

We look forward to welcoming you to Gravel Farm and sharing our oasis in the Fens with you. The perfect place to stay, relax and celebrate!


James and Davina Harvey and the team (including our dogs and chickens!)

"Gravel Farm is absolutely excellent. It's easily the best self catering accommodation I've ever stayed in. Great rooms, facilities and overall it was just a great place to stay. I will definitely recommend to friends and family if they need to stay in this part of the country. Thanks again for the great venue and customer service."

"We stayed in Oak cottage for a visit with relatives in Ely.  The bed and bed linen were new, fresh and comfortable. All in all, we had a fabulous stay and will definitely book again for our next visit to the area. Thank you so much for a lovely stay."
