Beautiful Detached House in Lovely Village, very close to Cambridge home swap

Large detached house in Histon, 4 miles/6.5km north of the wonderful city of Cambridge - 20 minutes on the bus or a 25 minute cycle ride.

The house is spacious, light, and beautifully decorated with great facilities. It has four bedrooms: one superking, one king sized, one single plus pullout bed, another single on the 2nd floor and a sofabed downstairs. There is a well kept garden with a trampoline, table tennis and a pond (not covered). We have three bikes that visitors are welcome to use and would consider a car swap.

About the location

The village of Histon has everything you could need - a wide variety of shops, public houses and restaurants, playgrounds and a picturesque village green with a duck pond.

There is a regular bus service both to Cambridge city centre and to Cambridge station. London is 50 minutes from Cambridge by train from the central Cambridge station and we now have a new station about 2 miles/3km away, easily accessible by bicycle via dedicated tracks, so even easier to get to London.

Cambridge has a wealth of history and beauty to enjoy, especially in the summer: punting, walking tours, College tours, open air Shakespeare performances in the various University College gardens in late July/August and the delights of purely wandering through the streets. It also has a superb selection of shops, from major retailers to independent stores. Generally speaking, this area has a better, warmer summer climate than the rest of the UK, we normally get a lot of sun in the summer!

The Norfolk coast with its beautiful beaches is just over an hour away by car.
