Farmhouses in the Beautiful Cambridgeshire Countryside Currently Full
We have three farmhouses located in idyllic Cambridgeshire villages – There are two six miles north of Cambridge, and one 14 miles southwest of Cambridge. Two are currently full, however the third is coming soon, six miles north of Cambridge. These properties would be perfect for a couple looking for the quieter life and a place to make their own, with lots of space, surrounded by beautiful countryside and good access to Cambridge.
Each property has two large bedrooms, a studio/study, living room, kitchen and bathroom. Plus you can decorate the spaces however you wish.
We have two farmhouses in a small village about six miles north of Cambridge, just 20 minutes by car and 35 minutes by bike to the city centre. Located between the city and the fens, this parish village retains its historic aesthetic, including one of the most historic barns in England. Get involved with the local volunteer group committed to saving and restoring the barn for community use. The properties are unfurnished, but you can walk to Emmaus Cambridge, a second-hand charity warehouse, to check out their stock and have a cuppa at Joan’s Coffee Shop.
In a village approximately 14 miles south-west of Cambridge and 3 miles northwest of Royston, we have another farmhouse. It’s 35 minutes by car to the centre of Cambridge. It’s a small, pretty village with a thriving community spirit. The residents are served by The Crown pub, providing real ale and traditional food, a post office, village hall and football ground. We recommend taking a nice stroll around the village to check out the timber framed cottages, thatched roofs and beautiful open countryside.
Both villages offer a relaxing pace of life and a close knit community, but are easily accessible from Cambridge. Benefit from the fresh countryside air, peaceful environment and the picturesque scenery.
