Holiday rentals in the United Kingdom


Book a townhouse or a bed and breakfast in Cambridge, the prestigious university town!

After just a few hours in Cambridge, you will realise why so many people apply to spend their student years living in the city, and it goes beyond the renowned degree. The twisting cobbled streets, river and gardens are all waiting outside your holiday rental or hotel room, so get ready to be captivated by the endless southern English charm. Whatever you want from your accommodation in Cambridge, you can trust Likibu to find the perfect holiday rental. From a reasonably priced youth hostel for potential students to a luxury holiday rental in a historic building, Cambridge is covered on any budget.

When to go?

Unlike most cities across the UK, Cambridge becomes less populated throughout the summer, as its thousands of students leave for their holiday which empties the city of many of its intercity residents. These sunnier months in the city book up well in advance, so secure your dream holiday rental today.

How to get there?

With frequent train links from London and connections from the north, Cambridge is most accessible by train for visitors from the UK. For international visitors from across Europe and the rest of the world, the nearest airport is London Stansted, which is 30 miles south of the city. Flights from France, Spain, Greece and Russia all fly into Stansted, and connections are available to Cambridge by train, coach or taxi in just over 30 minutes.

How to get around Cambridge?

The city of Cambridge is one of the most accessible cities by foot in the country, as the majority of attractions are all within walking distance from any hotel room or a holiday apartment, and much of the city is pedestrianised to cater for visitors who are walking between attractions. Alternatively, there are many opportunities to hire a bike and see the centre and the surrounding river at your own pace. For tourists who want to take it easy, there is a sightseeing bus which stops at the most prominent attractions.

Where to stay in Cambridge?

Cambridge City Centre

Home to the collages of The University of Cambridge, a world famous library, countless museums and galleries and a theatre, Cambridge centre is the beating heart of both the city and Cambridgeshire county. Choose an apartment to rent or a homestay in this renowned city and spend your days exploring the countless attractions which are just a stone throw away from your accommodation. The fun does not have to end as the sun goes down, however, as in a populated student city, there is no shortage of restaurants and bars which erupt as night falls on the town.

Grantchester

Just a short river walk from the centre of Cambridge, Grantchester is famous for its picturesque medieval church, tea gardens and  an appealing riverside location where the literary greats of Rupert Brooke and Lord Byron used to swim. Choose a luxury holiday rental in one of the village's quaint thatched cottages and enjoy a room with a view of the natural beauty of Cambridge.

Milton

The historic town of Milton is connected to Cambridge via a cycle bridge but is still slightly removed enough from the buzz of the city which makes it the perfect place for visitors who want a serene and peaceful holiday rental. As well as a sensory garden which focuses on the aroma and textures of flowers, Milton has a selection of restaurants nearby, a picturesque village church, and a country park, so immerse yourself in the attractions of the neighbouring village of Milton.

What activities to do?

Explore the University of Cambridge

One of the most renowned attractions in both the city and the entire country, the University of Cambridge is unmissable for any visitor. Visit one of the 31 colleges which make up the prestigious institute and go behind the scenes of one of the worlds most recognised buildings, including Kings College and St John's College. Visiting the university includes a trip to the Wren Library and its museums, which means you need to leave a full day to explore for yourself everything which the university has to offer.

Punting on the River Cam

Tour the city from the river and immerse yourself in a traditional activity by sitting back and enjoying a chauffeured tour of Cambridge. From Grantchester to the university, laying on the river and seeing the city from a boat is a captivating way of seeing the city from a new perspective.

Fitzwilliam Museum

The University of Cambridge' museum of art and antiques is one of the most recognised museums in the country, and in case you needed another reason to visit, it is free! The Fitzwilliam Museum has collections and exhibitions from Egypt, Greece, China and Japan, so leave your holiday rental or homestay, and delve into an undiscovered world at the nearby museum.

Cambridge University Botanic Garden

With a collection of over 8000 species of plants and flowers set in a 40-acre garden and greenhouse, the Botanical Garden is the most peaceful attraction in Cambridge. Known as an ‘oasis in the city', this garden is almost an extension of a luxury holiday rental or hotel room which gives you a sense of serenity beyond your own piece of the city.

Bridge of Sighs

The beautiful bride of sighs is best seen from a punting trip on the river, but however, you decide to take in this bridge, make sure you don't check out of your holiday rental without at least one visit to the staple of Kings College.

Shop in Market Square

Though Cambridge is known as a university town, it is also a market town and has been since the middle ages. Leave your holiday apartment or hotel room early in the day to secure you get the best from the markets section of street foods, vinyl and books, so leave a lot of room in your luggage for your own books from one of the most intellectual cities in the world.

The Backs

The Backs of The River Cam offers iconic views of the university campus, so grab your camera and get out of your accommodation for the sunrise to get that perfect shot of the prestigious architecture meeting the cities natural waterway.
