High Street, Knapwell, CB23

Knapwell Wood Farm is a striking example of seventeenth century architecture which has been vastly improved by the current owners to create the ultimate family home. Set in a very tranquil plot of just over 3.5 acres on the periphery of the desirable South Cambridgeshire village of Knapwell with views of the woods and the rolling countryside you cannot fail to be impressed by this property from the second you enter onto the private driveway. Immediately you will notice the air-conditioned garaging with separate office, leading onto the generously sized one-bedroom, 1 ½ bathroom, self-contained annexe and further external office with kitchenette and cloakroom, perfect for working from home for those who need to. The main house is imposing and charming and is arranged over three floors of living accommodation as well as having a very well-appointed wine cellar. The ground floor has a huge dine in, country style kitchen with a full size aga, leading out into the orangery which looks out onto the landscaped rear garden and detached, air conditioned, leisure barn which is currently used as a gym but could be used as a games room or studio. There are a further four reception rooms boasting a plethora of period features and wood burning stoves. The first floor has four very generous bedrooms, each with their own en-suite facilities. There is also a playroom with built in cupboards. The top floor has a further three bedrooms and a family bathroom. Sellers InsightNestled in the glorious Cambridgeshire countryside, less than ten miles from Cambridge city centre is Knapwell Wood Farm, a very handsome period home that sits in around three and a half acres of beautiful gardens and grounds. “The house was built c1710 on what was originally a working farm –and in its day it had just under six hundred acres,” says the owner. “We purchased the property back in 2003, and interestingly it had been in the ownership of the same family ever since it was built, so when we discovered it it was the first time it had ever been on the open market, however it’s fair to say that it was in need of an awful lot of TLC.” “We bought the property in the January but didn’t move in until the following November as we had to carry out a mammoth renovation project. We updated everything from the electrics and plumbing to the kitchen and bathrooms, all the plaster was stripped off the walls, all joists were pulled out and as the stairs had fully collapsed we had them beautifully remade. We’ve enhanced the property further by adding a triple garage and office with air-con and heating, a bespoke hand-made conservatory, a large separate gym building complete with wet room, air-con and heating. We also enlarged the kitchen reinstating the old well within the new extension and converted the stable into a beautiful one-bedroom self-contained annexe. The house is now just lovely and has been the most wonderful home for our family.”“The house really comes alive when it’s filled with family and friends, and it has been the venue for many family gatherings and sleepovers over the years – my eight siblings and their families are scattered across the country so many a weekend has been spent accommodating and entertaining them all. The grounds have also provided a wonderful backdrop to countless alfresco get-togethers. Every year we had a firework party for our daughters and their friends, and the garden and terracing around the house have been great entertaining features of the property. We also have a well-stocked orchard with plum, pear, apple, greengage and damson trees, we’ve erected raised vegetable beds in the back garden which have yielded great crops over the years, and we have two natural ponds, one of which is surrounded by terracing so has been a great place to relax, particularly while catching the evening sunsets.” “The standout room is possibly the kitchen – we have a kitchen table that seats ten and a gorgeous Aga which creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We love to host dinner parties and the kitchen is the perfect place for entertaining.”“The location of Knapwell Wood Farm has been brilliant. We’re about seven miles to Madingley Road Park & Ride in Cambridge and a mile from Cambourne where there’s a Morrisons supermarket, several takeaways and much, much more. The house is also about six miles from St. Ives, where there’s a lovely weekly market, and St Neots train station is fifteen minutes away by car so it’s an ideal spot for a commuter.”“Seventeen years ago, we set up a B&B as the house has a separate front staircase leading to three en-suite bedrooms. We’ve also had five weddings in the garden with marquees and caterers for guests, we’ve held countless big birthday and wedding parties for our families. We also held a charity ball here for 170 guests to raise vital funds for the Cambridge Children’s Hospice - it’s a property that has endless possibilities.”“We will be sad to leave the property and the area, but with all the girls now moved away and married, the house is far too big for just my husband and I,” says the owner. “We’ll be looking to move to a small cottage somewhere so we will miss the space for family gatherings, particularly at Christmas when we would normally host at least twenty people for a few days every year. Whoever buys this house will be very lucky and we wish them as much joy as we have had over all these years.”Village InformationKnapwell is a village lying approx. 10 miles west of Cambridge city centre between the A428 and A14 and is approx. 6 miles from St Ives. The nearby town of Cambourne provides shopping and leisure facilities including a spa and health club at Cambridge Belfrey together with GP and dental surgeries whilst Bar Hill offers a golf course, spa and pool. SchoolsThe nearest primary school is in the neighbouring village of Elsworth which is Ofsted rated “Good”. Knapwell is in the catchment area for Swavesey Village College (Ofsted rated “Outstanding”) for secondary education. Cambridge city offers an excellent choice of independent schools.

Police Row, Therfield, SG8

Hay Farm House is striking and unique family home, located in the very heart of the highly sought-after North Hertfordshire village of Therfield. A well regarded gastro pub is just a short walk while the house and gardens offer an exceptional level of privacy. This Grade II listed house, dating back to the 16th century sits within a plot measuring just under one acre, has been lovingly restored and improved by the current owners, with a selection of outbuildings, garaging for three cars and a landscaped garden. Stepping inside there is over four thousand square feet of living accommodation boasting a plethora of original features, arranged over three floors. The ground floor is currently arranged with a dine in kitchen with separate utility room, a large cloakroom, formal dining room, sitting room, study and a conservatory with views across the garden and the countryside beyond. The first floor boasts four very generous bedrooms served by two family bathrooms, and the third floor is currently arranged as two further bedrooms served by another bathroom. Outside is a three-car garage, an art studio/home office and a very large workshop which has potential to be further accommodation, subject to the necessary planning consents. Therfield has always been one of the most sought-after villages just to the south of Cambridge with a strong community, fantastic school and a fabulous village pub which serves good quality food.Sellers Insight“Upon entering Hay Farmhouse, one is immediately enveloped in its peace and calm and a feeling of stepping back into a past world of old-fashioned values,” say the current owners of this Grade II listed home. “Having viewed many period properties, we knew immediately that this was the one for us, with its generous reception rooms, kitchen and bedrooms and marvellous grounds, not to mention its sense of history. Dating back to the early 16th century, this former ‘Hall House’ reflects generations of contented lives spent within its magical environment. Being in the centre of the village in its own oasis of land, it is historically an important property to the village. Indeed, many of the older generation of residents have a little story to relate of the ‘old days’ which give the property its life.”Since moving in, the owners have made various improvements to the property. “When we purchased the house from the previous owners, an internationally recognised sculptor and his wife, the décor was a little eccentric with his amazing original metal sculptures and Indian fabrics on display,” the current owners say. “Over the past 24 years, we have completed a number of major improvements and redecorated the entire house inside and out. Now, it is our ideal home, perfect for everyday life and entertaining alike.”“The large farmhouse kitchen is a centre point for everyone to gather and chat,” the owners continue, “with guests leaning against the AGA in winter prior to many dinner parties held in the Tudor oak panelled dining room. Once lit with candles, the room has a magic of its own wherein one can easily be taken back to how it might have been in the Cromwellian days, or even the Knights Templar who were in historical evidence in this village and Royston.”The property benefits from an easy flow between the indoor and outdoor living spaces. “There are many doors that open out to bring in the gardens in the warmer weather and, with the flagstone and boarded floors everywhere, there is no need to worry about the grandchildren’s feet or even the dog!” the owners say. “The gardens are always full of birdsong and one is often woken to the sound of a Thrush singing outside the window or even the Long Tailed Tits tapping on the wooden frames. We are visited by wild ducks and a family of Moorhens too. The gardens are very peaceful, full of colour all year round and plenty of sunshine. We have allowed a wildflower meadow to grow in the grass at the end of the garden, overlooking a paddock and distant fields which in summer are covered with ox-eyed daisies.”The local area has much to offer, too. “For families, the local First School has an excellent reputation,” say the owners, “and is very much part of village activities. The children occasionally make biscuits or flower posies for the residents of the village and, on their school walk, will leave these delightful gifts on the doorstep. The village has an excellent play school for the little ones and we also have two active churches and a village hall where many activities are held. Needless to say, it is a tremendous village to live in, with many activities and societies to join if wished, and much neighbourly support and communication.”“What we will miss most is the friendly ambience of both the house and gardens, the warmth of the house and the bird song in the grounds. The house gives an immediate impression of calm, friendliness to all who enter the property. We will also miss the friendliness of the villagers and the gastro pub on the green.”“My favourite room is the dining room where we have celebrated many amazing events, lunches and dinner parties for our family and friends, sometimes with 20 or more at the table!”“Hay Farmhouse is located in the centre of the village and has always played a major role in village history as one of the principal properties in the area.”“Two of our daughters were married in the local church and the wedding procession from the house to the church was much enjoyed by the villagers. The pub on the green supplied refreshments beforehand, and the following day we held a ‘survivors’ breakfast’ on the back lawns, where the white blossom from the rose arbour shed petals like confetti all over again!”Village InformationTherfield is a small well-regarded village lying approx. 15 miles to the South of Cambridge surrounded by beautiful countryside. The Nature Reserve, Therfield Heath, is just north of the village and from there on a clear day it is possible to see Ely Cathedral, over twenty miles to the north. The Icknield Way path passes through the village on its 110-mile journey from Buckinghamshire to Suffolk. The village pub, The Fox & Duck, sitting on the village green dates back to the 1700s and also has a popular restaurant and is often a stopping off point for ramblers and dog walkers alike. The village hall is home to the village pre-school and hosts a variety of groups and social activities. TransportTherfield village sits between the A10 and A505 with links to the A1M and M11. For those wishing to commute Royston mainline station is less than 3 miles away and provides fast trains into London King’s Cross in about 40 minutes. Trips into Cambridge City are quick and easy with the Cambridge Trumpington Park & Ride approx. 20 minutes away. Royston town, about 5 minutes by car, offers all the local amenities you need with a high street shops, supermarkets and a weekly market.

The Green, Eltisley, PE19

Green Farm is a stunning example of a 17th century home that has been improved and restored to a very high standard over the years. Green Farm is set in an enviable position overlooking the village green in the well-regarded village of Eltisley which offers easy access to Cambridge, St Neots and rail links to London. The triple aspect living room with access to the gardens has a beautiful inglenook fireplace while the formal dining room boasts a brick floor and fireplace with a woodburning stove. There is also a family room, study and kitchen with Aga, granite worksurfaces and butler sink. The four generous bedrooms are served by a family bathroom, en-suite bathroom to the principal bedroom and a further en-suite cloakroom to bedroom two. The south facing garden is very private and leads to a barn and garaging with drive. Eltisley is a friendly village centralising around the village green with its cricket green and thatched pavilion with bar – The Cade – hosting regular events and clubs. There is also the popular pub/restaurant, Church, Bluebell Day Nursery and Ofsted rated ‘Good’ Newton Primary School.Sellers InsightThis utterly charming Grade II listed timber-framed period house enjoys a sought-after location overlooking the pretty village green in the delightful Cambridgeshire village of Eltisley. The property dates back to the 16th century, but over time it has been sensitively extended and modernised and is now a really spacious and beautifully presented four-bedroom family home. “As well as the sheer character of the house and its wonderful sense of history, I’d say that the location was probably what really sold it to us,” says the owner. “It overlooks the village green and cricket pitch and we’re just a short walk from the village pub, which serves some wonderful food. There is also a nursery and primary school, and lots of clubs and societies so there’s something for everyone. It’s also a very convenient place to live as from nearby St Neots it’s only about 45 minutes by train into London or we can hop in the car and be in the centre of Cambridge in around fifteen minutes.”“The house was beautifully renovated by a previous owner so it was in great condition when we bought it and therefore, apart from updating the décor, we’ve needed to do very little. It has a really warm and welcoming feel throughout and so much character. Lots of the rooms are heavily beamed, there are exposed timbers throughout and a total of three inglenooks, two of which are fitted with wood burners. It’s a beautiful example of a period home, but it also works really well for modern living and it’s a lovely house to entertain in.”“The gardens are something else that drew us to the property,” continues the owner. “They wrap right the way around the house and are mainly laid to lawn so very family-friendly. We’ve added new patios so there are a couple of lovely places to sit out and relax in, and the new outdoor lighting make the whole space look really stunning at night. I love the fact that it’s so peaceful out there, and while the back is totally private, at the front we enjoy a really stunning view out across the village green.” “The main living room is just lovely. It features the exposed beams and timbers, a huge inglenook and it’s triple aspect so it’s light and bright, and the views across the garden are superb.” “Eltisley is a gorgeous village with a lovely pub and restaurant and a little school, and we have mile upon mile of beautiful open countryside right on the doorstep. For all day-to-day necessities we can either head into St Neots or indeed Cambridge city centre, and the local transport links are really good so it’s also a really great place for a commuter.”“Around the back of the house we have a driveway that can take a couple of cars and also a garage so parking has never been an issue.” “We are only moving as for family reasons we need a separate annexe, but we will miss this place when we go,” says the owner. “It’s a lovely home in a stunning location and we’ve relished being part of such a friendly village community.”Village InformationEltisley is a charming village with a picturesque village green home to the cricket pitch and its thatched pavilion with bar and to the west of the green stands the 13th century parish church. There is also a primary school and the popular pub/restaurant "The Eltisley". Cambourne, approximately 3 miles to the east, offers a range of shopping facilities including a supermarket, banking facilities, GP/dental/pharmacy facilities and a selection of cafes and restaurants.

The proposed A428 road improvements will divert much of the existing traffic away from the village and will be a real bonus for the area as well as improving local journey times. The short drive to St Neots railway station provides fast links into London King’s Cross in approximately 45 minutes and rail links to the North via Peterborough.

Whittets Close, Great Gransden, SG19

AVAILABLE FOR VIEWING FROM SATURDAY 12TH JUNE 2021Available for sale for the first time in over thirty years, this truly exceptional property set in an enviable location in the heart of Great Gransden has been extended and improved by the current owners to create a perfect family home. Located in a private cul de sac just a few hundred yards from the outstanding Ofsted rated Barnabas Oley school and a few minutes’ walk from the village shop and post office, this really is the epitome of a family home. Entering through the front door it becomes immediately apparent just how light and bright the property is with lots of windows flooding the house with natural light.The ground floor is currently arranged with a large, triple aspect lounge, wonderful dining/garden room with views across the rear garden, guest WC, study, utility room and a large kitchen breakfast room all presented to a very high standard. On the first floor are five comfortable bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room and two sharing a Jack & Jill en-suite shower room plus a large family bathroom. To the rear is a secure and private rear garden and access to the garage. And if this wasn't enough there is also a fantastic one bedroom, self-contained annexe which is also presented to an incredibly high standard. Early viewing is advised.Seller InsightGreat Gransden is a much sought after village, and for the present owners it marked the end of a lengthy search for a new home. They explain that they fell in love with the village as they drove along into its pretty postcard streets: and when they pulled up outside the house, in a small close, they knew instantly that this was to be their family home. They decided to enlarge the house, and working to the highest quality, created a generous extension to give an extra bedroom with an additional Jack & Jill en-suite bathroom, and spacious ground floor living spaces. They demolished an old barn on the property and built a one bedroom annexe.The house has been a fantastic home for thirty years, during which time the family have appreciated the rooms, perfect for both family relaxation and elegant entertaining. The well equipped kitchen is the daily hub of the house and is where you can enjoy chatty meals or settle into the most comfortable window seat to read. The sitting room provides all year comfort and with a blazing open fire, is a cosy winter retreat.The house is flooded with natural light, creating a warm and hospitable ambience throughout. The dining room has a charming triple aspect, and there have been many memorable meals here, often with a musical theme, as the room houses the baby grand piano. Music has played a major role in the family’s life and for a special occasion, two jazz bands and a marquee in the garden, provided a fabulous day long occasion for over a hundred and fifty guests. For such occasions the five bedrooms and annexe ensure easy overnight hospitality.The private garden wraps itself around the house and in the summer months encapsulates the sense of idyllic rural living, as the only sounds you hear are the church clock striking and the noise of horses’ hooves. It is a gentle way of life.The active village has a wide range of clubs to choose from and the Great Gransden Agricultural Show and the Air Show in neighbouring Little Gransden are annual highlights. There is a shop for daily needs and an excellent primary school only two minutes’ walk from the house, whilst nearby Cambridge, St Neots, Cambourne and Biggleswade, provide work, retail and leisure facilities.The owners will miss everything: the house, the lovely choice of walks through the bluebell woods, the numerous local footpaths and the annual barbecue with the residents of Whittets Close. However, with just two of them in this large house they feel it’s now time to downsize, but when they relocate they will take away the most wonderful memories.Village informationIf you love the idea of a quintessentially English village the popular and sought-after village of Great Gransden could be for you. Great Gransden is well known for its many attractive period homes and picturesque views. Surrounded by undulating countryside it is conveniently located for Cambridge, St Neots and Bedford.

March Road, Wimblington, PE15

Set in a plot of approx. 1.3 acres of gardens, and separate studio, this very well-presented family home offers very flexible living accommodation with a host of possibilities. Located in the popular and well served village of Wimblington, with easy access to the market town of March and the cathedral City of Ely with a host of highly regarded schools and high speed rail links to both London and Peterborough, it is an ideal location for those looking to come out of a city. Approached via a smart drive with a large front garden and ample off-street parking, the main house is set well back from the road. To the side are private gates leading to further parking and a garage. Inside the house, which has been modernised to a high standard and is incredibly well maintained by the current owners, there is over 3600 square feet of living accommodation which includes a modern kitchen/breakfast room, three reception rooms, gym, five bedrooms and three bathrooms. The formal gardens measure approximately one acre and lead to the detached double story outbuilding with kitchen and bathroom. Sellers InsightSituated on the edge of the pretty village of Wimblington is Springfields Lodge, a large and extremely well-appointed family home that has been beautifully remodelled by the current owners. “We moved here from Peterborough back in 1994 and I have to say that it was a real combination of this wonderful setting and the sheer potential of the property that sold it to us,” says the owner. “We wanted to start a family, ideally in a peaceful village location, and in a house that would give us space to grow. When we happened upon Springfields Lodge, despite it needing quite a bit of work, it offered the space we had been looking for in spades, both inside and out, and the setting was perfect. It was everything we’d been searching for and more, so we jumped at the chance to buy it.”“When we moved here it was a very nice bungalow downstairs, but upstairs was a separate flat so for us the layout simply didn’t work. We enlisted the help of a great local architect who totally redesigned the layout both upstairs and down and transformed the property into a fantastic family home. Over time we’ve had the kitchen refitted a couple of times and I’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve redecorated, but apart from making a few tweaks here and there the layout of the house has always been absolutely perfect. It’s a house that can be adapted and changed depending on how you want to live, and we have large spaces in which we can all be together, but equally if you need a bit of peace and quiet there are lots of rooms you can take yourself off to. It works incredibly well for modern family life, which I suppose is one of the reasons we’ve stayed here for so long.”“When we were looking for a house all those years ago we knew we wanted a decent amount of land so that the children could have a pony, however we initially struggled to find a place that wasn’t right out in the sticks,” continues the owner and yet we’re just a few minutes down the road from the lovely little town of March, which has shops, restaurants… practically everything you might want, and the transport links are superb so we can get just about anywhere with relative ease.” “It’s hard to choose a favourite room, but the room we all tend to gather in is the kitchen. It’s a place where we can cook, eat, sit and chat, and when the weather is warm we open the French doors and spill out onto the patio.” “We’ve loved the fact that we have so much outside space so you really do feel far removed from the hustle and bustle, and yet we can nip into March to do a spot of shopping, hop on the train and spend the day in London and it’s incredibly easy to get to Stansted. It’s a great location and it’s enabled us to enjoy the best of everything.” “The house comes alive when it’s full of people and we’ve had the space to host some fabulous get-togethers. The family always gathers here at Christmas, we had a gorgeous wedding celebration in a marquee in the garden, and we even hosted a ‘street party’ for all the neighbours, again out in the garden.”“This has been the most wonderful family home and we’re going to be so sad to let it go, but it’s just too big for us now that the children are flying the nest,” says the owner. “What will I miss? Absolutely everything.”Village InformationAlthough a quiet village Wimblington continues to be a sought-after village with a sense of community and an active social life including several clubs and groups for all ages. Wimblington has won the Cambridgeshire Times “Best Kept Village” award nine times and came second in the “National Village of the Year” competition.

Set in a plot of approximately a quarter of an acre there is off street parking for many cars as well as a large detached double garage to the front. Wrapping around the property is a beautiful, landscaped garden with al fresco dining area, lawns and flower and shrub borders. At the rear is also an insulated games/hobby room with power and light which could be used as a very generous, work from home office. Inside the property is a light and bright, dine in kitchen with built in appliances, large formal lounge with views across the garden, study, formal dining room, three double bedrooms, one with en-suite, and a family bathroom on the ground floor. The first floor addition in 2019 was added to create a further two large double bedrooms each with en-suite facilities. Early internal inspection is strongly advised.Seller Insight“When we first came to view the property just over 10 years ago, we were immediately impressed by the village location. Set on a little walkway leading to the church, there’s no passing traffic so it’s incredibly quiet and peaceful, yet we’ve never felt isolated as everything we need is easily accessible. The house sits very well within the generous plot and as soon as we went inside, we could see that it had been built and maintained to a high standard,” recall the owners.“The pretty village pub is within walking distance and the thriving village hall has something for everyone, including carpet bowls and youth clubs. It’s just a two-minute walk to the footpaths and bridleways leading across the fields from where we can take a leisurely stroll to Great Gransden to pick up bread, milk, and newspapers from the well-stocked village shop. The Post Office is always busy too and it’s very useful. We love the fact that everything we need is nearby and we don’t have to get in the car for the day-to-day necessities. The bluebells in Gransden Wood are always an amazing sight and we also enjoy spending time at Paxton Pits which is now a nature reserve with lovely walks and a café.”“We’ve spent 10 enjoyable years transforming the garden into a peaceful haven. We re-designed the driveway which now offers parking for numerous vehicles and a caravan, and there are some lovely seating areas too. We’ve added climbers and ornamental trees, including pear, almond and plum, and the borders are bursting with colour from peonies and roses. The kitchen window is the best spot to watch the birds as they visit the feeders and we often see goldfinch – so beautiful! – along with the occasional nuthatch and even a great spotted woodpecker.”“The property is perfect for family get-togethers and we just open the patio doors out to the garden to create a relaxed entertaining space. The dining room is the ideal size for family meals or we can head into the kitchen for smaller, more informal meals. We also enjoy relaxing in the sitting room which is always light and bright. The log burner is a wonderful feature providing warmth and cosiness in lockdown and the cold winter months.”Village informationLittle Gransden is a quaint village in South Cambridgeshire just half a mile from its larger neighbouring village of Great Gransden.

It was love at first sight for the present owners, who were living in East London and wanted to bring their family up in a spacious home in a rural, and community minded village. The Old School House ticked all their boxes.The original cottage started life in the late seventeenth century as the schoolmaster’s house and had a Victorian extension. Today, it is a spacious, characterful home, with all the comforts of twenty first century living. It is a home where you can relax and unwind but will also serve as a sophisticated venue for more formal entertaining. With the warm, inviting ambience that fills the home, The Old School House is very people orientated, and the family particularly enjoy relaxing in the living room, with its cosy log burner and the huge Victorian window that floods the room with natural light.

The private garden is an outside green and colourful family summer room, where you can settle under the shade of an apple tree, admire the spring cherry blossom, harvest the vegetables, and have an outside film night with warmth provided by the fire pit. There is also a secret gate to the primary school swimming pool that has been much appreciated. The Old School House is a hidden personal oasis in the centre of the village.Great Gransden provided everything the family hoped for, the children have a freedom to play in the village park, there are beautiful walks in the local bluebell woods and the village has an active community life, culminating in the annual Agricultural Show.

The house feels light and airy yet very cosy, but overall it feels homely. The edge of village location is great, with the Close itself being extremely safe for children. We originally bought the house for the commutability to London and the lovely village feel – it’s a friendly community with shops, pubs and river walks close by. It ticked all the boxes for family and work life and gave us the perfect feeling of modern country living – what more can we say, it’s a really lovely house in a fantastic location!‘There are good local state and independent schools, with the village primary being a safe walking distance – our children cycle to school, primary and secondary. The area is great for outdoor activities for all ages and there are lots of beautiful walks on the doorstep.

There are also handy Thames Link and Gatwick services.’ ‘The house enjoys a sunny south-facing enclosed garden, perfect for relaxing in the sun – both inside and out are great for entertaining. It’s a very versatile and adaptable low-maintenance home with good private and on-street parking.’ ‘The layout and flow are excellent throughout. We especially love the lounge with the conservatory attached and views across the garden – It has a cosy log burner which makes it a lovely space to enjoy as a family.’ ‘We like that it’s quiet and convenient; you can easily step out and enjoy the surrounding countryside or be in Huntingdon in minutes.
