The Malting House
The Malting House is a Grade II listed building on Newnham Road overlooking the former mill and mill pond, and across to the trees and streams of Sheep’s Green and the main arm of the River Cam. The name, appearance and features of the Malting House are a reminder of its original nineteenth century use as a malt house for the converting of barley to malt for brewing beer. In the 1920s the building housed a famous and influential progressive school. The house was acquired by the College in 2003 and after sensitive restoration it became a student hostel. It is a short walk from the main College site.
The property has 12 student rooms and two en-suite guest rooms, most facing either the Malting House gardens or the quiet side lane which retain an historic gas street light still in use.
