Head Fen Country Retreat sits close to the borders of Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk making it a great location to use as a base for exploring East Anglia. We are only 10 minutes from Ely, 30 minutes from Cambridge and an hour from Norwich so there’s always plenty to explore.

The historic market town of Ely can be found just 5 miles away with its stunning cathedral, local shops, guided walks and peaceful canal with several bars and cafés – the perfect place to watch the world go by! Welney Wetland Centre, home to many species of birds, can be found just up the road along with miles and miles of walking routes to explore.
