Hello and thank you for visiting our website.

Following the death of my wife, Caroline, earlier this year the business of Caroline Catering is no longer offering an outside catering service.

The Bed and Breakfast side of the business continues at Riverside House for which details can be found by scrolling down this page.

If you are looking for catering services you may like to contact our daughter, Helen, on 07756 663519, as she is now doing outside catering in the area, much along the lines of the business her mother operated for some 25 years.

A warm and friendly welcome awaits you from Richard and family at our four star bed and breakfast in the delightful village of Hemingford Abbots between Huntingdon and St Ives and about 14 miles from Cambridge.

Peacefully tucked away in two acres of natural gardens extending down to a backwater of the river Great Ouse, we are only about 600 yards from the middle of the village where you will find St Margaret's Church, the Axe and Compass public house and our fine Village Hall. 

 We had the house built in 1980 to a contemporary design. The light and spacious rooms are on the ground floor and have en suite facilities.
