There are schooling and shopping facilities in the neighbouring village of Bottisham, including the Community Primary School and Bottisham Village College (OFSTED Outstanding). Swaffham Prior Church of England Primary School is nearby. There is fast and easy access to both Cambridge with the newly opened cycle path and Newmarket via the A14 and the M11 is only a few minutes drive away. Rail links are very good and the development is within easy reach of Cambridge North Mainline Railway Station, as well as the village of Waterbeach with its Mainline Railway Station providing links to Cambridge City Centre and London's Kings Cross. The historic village was built between Roman and medieval times to bring supplies to the surrounding villages via the River Cam. Nearby is Anglesey Abbey, a large country house now owned by the National Trust, which also maintains Lode Watermill. There are several footpaths across the fields and with views to picturesque open countryside.
