Local Places to Explore

If you’re thinking of booking an Alpaca Experience with us at Queenholme, and want to explore the area whilst you’re here, we can point you in the right direction!

Willingham is only a 10 mile drive away from the historic and beautiful city of Cambridge, and 15 miles from the Fenland cathedral city of Ely, so it makes the perfect base for discovering the local area and beyond.

If the quieter village scene is more for you, then there are some real gems to discover in Willingham, just up the road from our farm.


If you’re looking for a spot of lunch after your trek, then pop by The Auction Rooms on Station Road. They serve a wide variety of homemade dishes, made from ingredients sourced locally. The cafe is open 7 days a week, and throughout the summer months, there is additional seating outside in the courtyard.

If a pub is what you’re looking for, Willingham has three very welcoming watering holes; The Duke of Wellington on Church Street, and The Bank Micropub and The Porterhouse, which are both located on Station Road.

The Looking Glass Cafe is a lovely, cosy nook in the corner of the village, serving freshly made sandwiches, cakes and Fair Trade tea and coffee. The cafe also has a huge variety of new and secondhand books available to purchase.

The Porterhouse not only serves up great food and an extensive gin menu, but they also have a choice of three comfy well presented rooms to book, with continental breakfast included. The Studio accommodation is fully self-contained with its own kitchen and lounge. Perfect if you plan on staying a few nights!

Orchard Cottage on the High Street offers bed and breakfast within the grounds of a 17th Century Cottage. They offer en suite rooms and continental and cooked breakfasts made with locally sourced ingredients.
