Lovely house with beautiful garden in a village 12 miles from the City of Cambridge

Recently modernised house with 3 double bedrooms. Lovely south-facing garden with covered terrace, with plenty of outdoor seating and a BBQ. Close to public transport with links to Cambridge, Ely and London. Good local pubs and cafes in the village. The village of Willingham is historically significant for its position mid-way between Cambridge and Ely. There are fast trains to London from Cambridge and Huntingdon for a day's sightseeing. The market towns of Ely and St Ives (both on the river) are within easy reach. You can get around on public transport but having a car makes journeys faster. To travel into the centre of Cambridge for the day there is a free park and ride car park at the busway, a few minutes drive (approx 20 minutes walk) from the house where you can get a fast bus into the Centre.

The railway station at Huntingdon is a 25 minute drive and has good parking available. Trains to London are regular and take between 55 minutes and just over an hour into London St Pancras.

Our house is well-equipped for children and babies as our grandson visits regularly and has his own bedroom here. His room has a toddler bed that can be converted to a cot if needed. We also have a smaller travel cot for a smaller child, plus a high chair and changing mat as well as toys and books for young children. There are a number of board games for older children too.

Willingham is a good-sized friendly village 12 miles from the City of Cambridge. There are two well-stocked small supermarkets plus a bakery, butcher and several farm shops selling fresh fruit and vegetables. There is also a pharmacy very close to our house. There are three village pubs, two of which serve very good reasonably priced meals. The Porterhouse Pub does delicious takeaway pizza. There is an Indian restaurant and takeaway, a fish and chip shop and Chinese takeaway. The village also has a good beauty salon and hair salon.
There is a well-equipped children's playground at the recreation ground. The nearest public swimming pool is in the village of Histon (5 miles) or there is big leisure pool in Cambridge.
