Julie and her lovely cats are so welcoming. It was a lovely stay in Cambridge.
The main hub of the town was within walking distance easily, you could even rent bikes if you felt like it.
The rooms were gorgeous, clearly had been renovated recently. And the showers were fab. Bit of a hike with luggage to the top floor, but that is part of the charm of these homes!
Breakfast was made to order each morning, so it was nice. Perhaps a few more choices for us vegetarians? Still ate each morning and didn't feel the need to eat again until tea time.
If you're a cat person...make sure to ask if Julie is fostering any adorable little fur-babies!!

Stayed at Benson House with my husband, daughter and son-in-law whilst attending a wedding at Fitzwilliam College at the end of July. Everything about our stay was perfect ..... free parking, lovely comfortable rooms, well stocked hospitality trays, great powerful showers with quality French toiletries .... all topped off with a delicious plentiful, varied, breakfast ..... including freshly baked croissants!! Julie was extremely helpful both in the run-up to our visit and during our stay. Ideal location, with the centre of Cambridge a short walk away ( also on bus route if you don't fancy the walk back). Unfortunately we live to close to Cambridge for a return visit !

My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Benson House last October. Staying in Cambridge was a highlight of our trip, made all the better because of our amiable host, Julie, and her first-class B&B. It's just a 10 minute walk to downtown and the colleges so we never needed to worry about transportation. Julie had several great recommendations for things to do as well as excellent restaurants in the neighborhood. Her breakfasts were absolutely delicious. She offered so many tantalizing choices which she seemed to whip up in a flash and that left us satisfied until tea time. Our next visit to Cambridge will definitely include a stay at the Benson House.

My husband and I spent three wonderful days in Cambridge at the end of a two week stay in England with other family. Benson House was the perfect spot for us, within easy walking range of all of Cambridge. Julie is a delightful host and our room was very well appointed; one could not hope for a better night's sleep or a more delicious breakfast!

Julie made our trip to Cambridge memorable. Her home was immaculate. The breakfasts were great with lots of choices and attention to detail. Benson House is an easy walk to the action of downtown Cambridge. We will return.
