The University Botanical Gardens, a large 40 acre university owned garden is close by and Cambridge railway station is within walking distance (for most) with rail services to London from around 48 minutes.

‘Cambridge Leisure' – a large restaurant complex with bowling alleys and multi screen cinema complex is situated just off nearby Hills Road some 750 metres distant.

To the rear of the scheme is direct pedestrian and cycle access onto the ‘Guided Busway' which leads directly to Cambridge railway station and Addenbrookes Hospital.

Area Guide

Of course, Cambridge is dominated, both physically and culturally, by the University, which provides not only the exquisite architecture of the city but also an extensive and varied cultural scene. Yet the city has an exciting contemporary edge, as the hub of the UK's technology industry (the area is known as Silicone Fen) and the home of several multi-national companies, including Microsoft, Google, Amazon Prime and Astra Zeneca.

The city centre is a wonderful mixture of historic architecture and contemporary buzz. Along the Cam, the famous Backs afford some of the most celebrated views in Britain, with the stunning architectural set-piece of King's College. Other colleges provide a beguiling jumble of medieval, Jacobean, Victorian and 20th-century architecture. More up-to-date attractions include the Grand Arcade, with its full range of leading high street stores, while the Michelin-starred Midsummer House Restaurant is a jewel of Cambridge's fine-dining scene and café culture.

The area's lovely market towns include Ely, home to one of the country's most magnificent cathedrals, Saffron Walden, Royston and Newmarket.
