Description

Reach Hall is Reach Cambridge’s beautifully refurbished, three-storey Victorian villa that combines period features with modern convenience. Located in the historic city of Cambridge, Reach Hall sits opposite the River Cam and Jesus Green and is just a short walk from the city centre (10-15 minutes walk across the Green) with good bus links to central Cambridge and nearby towns. The house is situated in a quiet, residential area and was fully refurbished in 2015. The property is very secure, and individual rooms can be locked.

As a large, self-catering property, Reach Hall is perfect for school groups. We have already had excellent feedback from school groups from the UK and worldwide. We have another property on-site, the Coach House, that is available for use in conjunction with Reach Hall. We can also arrange a classroom/common room as required by the school group. Contact us for more information.

Do you have any testimonials from previous customers who have visited you on an educational visit that we can include in your section?

“Everything at Reach Hall was really well thought out and well presented. We had a fantastic time staying at Reach Hall with 14 young people and 5 staff. The young people really valued the homely quality and the luxurious and comfortable beds, the linen was wonderful. The cooking facilities were great, a treat to banquet together at such a large table. The whole space was very adaptable to our needs, we made the front room into a group learning space with chairs that Reach Hall provided with no fuss. Thank you so much for such a brilliant residential space.” (Bella, February 2016).

“We cannot rate this place highly enough…All of the facilities were spotless. The location of the house is perfect – although not rural as we had originally looked for – it was overlooking the river and a beautiful park. Walking into Cambridge centre took less than 10 minutes and in hindsight was much much better than being cut off in the middle of nowhere. We were really impressed by the fully stocked kitchens – there was plenty of crockery and cutlery and we even cooked a roast for 16! Dominika is an excellent manager and made us feel very welcome. She also thoroughly talked us through all the details of the house and so we felt very comfortable with all eventualities. In short we had a perfect stay and would certainly recommend this place for big groups.” (Pratik, October 2015).

“Reach Hall is an amazing house. Large but really felt like a home away from home. The bedrooms were really comfortable and well thought-out with plenty of space (and really comfy beds)…The position of the house is also really great as you can get into central Cambridge really easily on foot.” (Helen, November 2015).

“Large comfortable spaces, communal kitchen, great location opposite the canal and only 10 mins walk to the centre of Cambridge. So all round a great success and couldn't recommend staying there more.” (James, October 2015).

“Dominika and the team were superb hosts. The house was great, so close to the centre of Cambridge. I hope to come back very soon.” (Thomas, May 2015).

Is there anything else that you feel is important and want to include in your information?

Reach Hall sits opposite Jesus Green, which is a lovely open space for ball games and group activities. We are just a short walk from the very heart of Cambridge, famous for its university colleges, which are best seen from the River Cam in a punt. The House is spacious and has retained many of its period features. It is ideally suited for groups looking to experience their own piece of Cambridge, benefitting from exclusive access to the property whilst also making the most of everything Cambridge has to offer.
