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 is close to Cambridge and Newmarket and perfect for holidays, business travel, celebration weekends (including hen parties) 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 ‘celebration’ eco-house


Four Individually-Designed Cottages

Each cottage is dog and child-friendly and has its own parking spaces, private 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. 









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.

Get together, stay and celebrate at Gravel Farm

Whether you're looking to host a hen party or a milestone birthday weekend, Gravel Farm offers a stylish space for private events with the wildly tamed landscape and big skies providing a magnificent setting. 

With the option to exclusively book all four neighbouring cottages, we can accommodate a group of up to 18 guests with space for babies and children.

Willow Cottage's indoor dining tables are large enough to seat all 18 guests for you to enjoy a special occasion meal prepared yourself or by outside caterers. Its outside seating and dining area is also large enough for everyone to congregate for a barbecue or patio drinks and you can take on your fellow guests in our games room or our brand new private 9-hole footgolf course.  Furthermore, our Nordic-style hot tub can be hired for stays of 2 days or more and can accommodate up to 7 people. 



  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!)

We loved Gravel Farm. My extended family booked a week at Willow, Oak and Chestnut, and all three cottages were luxurious, comfortable, well-equipped and beautifully designed. We lacked for nothing. The new games room is brilliant - lots of space, and the doors slide up for when the sun shines.  My nephew learned to cycle on the huge gravel courtyards in front of the cottages, and we took long walks along the waterways. Lovely!

"Hands down one of the best properties we have ever stayed in. Willow Cottage is stunning and unbelievably well equipped. So stylish, comfortable and an absolute pleasure to spend time in. Everything is such a high standard, but at the same time very homely."
