The village has a shop/post office, gallery, gift shop and a excellent pub/restaurant called The Tickell Arms (www.thetickellarms.co.uk) and a recently opened restaurant called Provenance (www.provenancekitchen.com) which serves delicious lunches and suppers from Thursday to Saturday. The mainline station gives easy access to Cambridge and London.
There are ample opportunities for Cambridge sightseeing, walking, cycling and is the perfect location for a trip to the Imperial War Museum Duxford and for the air shows.

I have lived in the Cambridge area since I was 18 and now live in the house, Swans Corner, that my husband Andrew and I built 20 years ago. Having been a midwife for 30 years I left the NHS last year to concentrate on doing Airbnb and spending more time in my garden and with my dogs, (Digby, Purdey and Bunty) cat (Archie) and many hens! I have met lots of lovely guests from all over the world and have stayed in lots of Airbnb’s myself around the world.
