Damson Close

Surrounded by lush green Cambridgeshire countryside, at the edge of the thriving community of Meldreth, Damson Close is a new model for modern village living. Combining a unique opportunity to embrace an idyllic rural lifestyle – while still close enough to Cambridge to enjoy the pleasures of a historic university city – it is the perfect place to settle and to put down roots. Just a short walk from Meldreth station, this exclusive collection of just nine three, four and five bedroom family homes has been sensitively planned to create a secluded, relaxed environment, with communal areas that are creatively landscaped to optimise the open space.

All the appeal of village life

Straddling the Prime Meridian, Meldreth is a thriving village in the best tradition of English rural communities. With a friendly local pub within walking distance of your home, local convenience store and clubs and societies, it is an enormously welcoming village that takes advantage of its tranquil, leafy location. Explore the local farm shops, while less than a mile away, the neighbouring village of Melbourn hosts a further choice of pubs, cafes and takeaways; Sheene Mill, a magnificent 16th century mill house overlooking the River Mel, is an ideal setting for Sunday lunch or afternoon tea. Melbourn’s expanding Science Park is home to international employers AstraZeneca and TTP, while the acclaimed Addenbrooke’s Hospital is nearby, part of Cambridge’s thriving Biomedical Campus.

The bustling market town of Royston is just four miles away: supplementing the eclectic range of independent retailers and high street names, the traditional twice-weekly market offers fresh produce and more, in addition the town’s diverse selection of restaurants, cafes and gastro-pubs provide tastes from all corners of the globe. Other excellent amenities include a well-resourced library, a museum, a busy leisure centre and an award-winning park. From the May Fayre, the Royston in Blue fun run, the Kite Festival in August and the Arts Festival in September, there is something to entertain every member of the family throughout the year. Further afield, the university city of Cambridge is home to department

stores, designer shopping and additional dining and culture.

Country living close to town and city

The village benefits from its own highly regarded primary school, while nearby Melbourn Village College caters for 11–16-year-olds. Royston boasts a choice of primary schools, along with an academy and sixth form college. Cambridge is also easily accessible, with a number of well-regarded independent schools including Abbey College, King’s College, The Leys and The Perse.

Leisure opportunities in Meldreth range from tennis and taekwondo to croquet and bowls, with a thriving Sunday football club, while 3-18 year olds are welcome at the Melbourn Dynamos FC. Cricket, rugby, hockey and squash are all popular, with Kingsway, Whaddon and Royston golf clubs just a few of many in the area.

Meldreth has its own nature reserve, Melwood, which is ideal for shorter walks. In addition cyclists,horse-riders and hikers will enjoy exploring the ancient route of the Icknield Way. Alternatively, those who prefer to relax by the water can go fishing at Nash Lakes and Orchard Lake.
