Location

A serene contrast to the energy of the city. Anstey Hall Barns provides you with complete rural tranquillity as well as convenient access to the key roads of Cambridge.

Located within the Trumpington Conservation Area and Green Belt land, this protected setting provides a peaceful contrast to the city. Closer to home, explore riverside walks, historic villages and wildlife from your unique doorstep.

After a few moments, being soothed by birdsong and the comforting peal of church bells, it is easy to see why these surroundings inspired some of the greatest English poets. Wander in wildlife and wild-flower meadows in spring and summer. Walk among turning leaves in autumn and across parkland on frosty winter mornings.

There's year-round bathing at Byron's Pool – named after poet Lord Byron who swam here – and punting in Cambridge where you can be within minutes. Sample the city's ever-flourishing arts and food scenes, open-air markets and world-famous architecture.

Leave the bustle behind and be back to the calm of Anstey Hall Barns minutes later, perhaps enjoying a nightcap whilst watching the sun set over this completely unique, historical scene.

Further Information

The Granary forms part of an exclusive development of eight EXEMPLARY CONVERTED BARNS and four NEW BUILD BARNS in an exclusive, rural location. Nestled on the FRINGE OF GRANTCHESTER, Anstey Hall Barns is set amongst bordering meadows and parkland; a tranquil location that neighbours significant protected history.

This fantastic development is located on the western edge of the beautiful village of Trumpington in Cambridge, within walking distance of the charming Grantchester Meadows and only a short distance from the city centre.

From your drive through the imposing entrance and the wooded area that takes you to Anstey Hall Barns, it is apparent that you are entering a setting like no other. The original barns, dating back to Saxon times, have been painstakingly restored by an award-winning team, reusing historic materials whilst re-imagining them into unique homes.

Anstey Hall Barns are nestled in a landscape of significant historical importance. In November 2013, a fascinating evaluation of Anstey Hall Farm was undertaken by Oxford Archaeology East which revealed Saxon settlement. The barns themselves are all dated pre-1948, while Anstey Hall Barn and the adjacent Dovecote conversion are Grade II listed. Each of the buildings have been restored by specialist teams to retain their rich history. Precise attention to detail has meant that materials such as weatherboarding, red and gault brickwork, clay plain tiles and welsh slate have been reused. Window openings have been replicated, while additional windows and doors, entire walls of glazing and clusters of roof lights create interiors that are light-filled, welcoming spaces where one can fully appreciate the beautiful, rural surroundings.
