The house is light & minimally furnished family home.
About the location
Cambridge is known, mainly , for the university but the city has a lot to offer beyond this - festivals, museums, a thriving music scene, gastro pubs, street food, green space, commons, the UK's oldest outdoor swimming pool, the river, a nationally respected arts centre (Cambridge Junction) which presents an eclectic programme of contemporary music, comedy and performance (theatre, dance, spoken word), arts cinema and lots of good pubs. Only 45 minutes from London by direct train ( the station is 5 minutes from our house) you wouldn't expect to find rare breed cows grazing on the main common by the river!
We live off Mill Road - a vibrant, diverse, well known road which leads to the centre of Cambridge. We're passionate about our local area and love its cluster of independent cafe's, shops, deli's and pubs and bars.
