Welcome to Springfield House Linton, Bed & Breakfast

Welcome to Springfield House, a period home within the conservation area of Linton near Cambridge. There are two double bedrooms, one with a view of the River Granta and open countryside beyond, the other larger room overlooks a delightful enclosed garden. Large gardens beside the Granta, conservatory and drawing room are available for guests to enjoy and children are welcome, but dogs are not allowed in the house.


Linton Zoo is popular with children and the lions and tigers can often be heard from the village. Picturesque towns and villages within easy reach include: Saffron Walden and Thaxted, renowned for their beautiful churches; Clare and Long Melford noted for antiques; and Lavenham famous for its Wool Hall. Ely with its magnificent Cathedral, Newmarket renowned for horse racing, Duxford Museum of aircraft. Chilford Hall is a popular venue for a wide variety of events and exhibitions and the home of the Curwen Press. For more please see the Locality page.


The village has a well documented history and contains many historic buildings crowded into its lanes. Situated on the ancient Icknield Way it offers pleasant walks, has an excellent bus service to Cambridge, and is only a few miles from the M11.

Alastair Sawday enjoyed our "happy combination of elegance and a bustling family atmosphere in a large 1840 Regency-style home" and highlighted our "exceptional value, so close to Cambridge". Staying Off The Beaten Track commended the gracious design of the house and the conservatory, where breakfast is often served under the mimosa tree.

Other meals are available at The Crown Inn, on the High Street, and The Dog & Duck by the river. These are only a few steps away from Horn Lane, and provide local and guest ales, good food in their restaurants and bar snacks.
