Discover Ninewells

Ninewells is a beautifully designed new neighbourhood for Cambridge;
a community woven into its natural surroundings to create an enviable
place to live, one where well-being and a balanced way of life have been considered.

Design is at the heart of Ninewells. It shines through architecture that is inspired by its location on the southern fringe of Cambridge, as it blends into rolling countryside. Design shapes the Ninewells landscape; green spaces, allotments, attenuation ponds and outdoor artwork nurture a deep-rooted bond between people and nature. Design helps to build the Ninewells community; it’s a safe and sustainable place where families flourish and people interact in harmony. And design makes the Ninewells way of life; it’s a place that promotes health and well-being through outdoor pursuits, supports your working life and offers easy access to the vibrant city centre.

Space and light are two of the vital qualities that make Ninewells such an uplifting place to live. The houses are separated by wide open vistas and public areas are linked by streets, footpaths and cycle lanes, all inviting you to make the most of the outdoor world. The spacious homes also inspire a sense of limitless room and freedom. Maximised glazing
makes for daylight-flooded spaces while courtyard gardens, roof terraces and balconies create a seamless connection with the outside.

Local Information

Leisure Facilities

In Cambridge ancient seats of academia sit side by side with centres of digital innovation; artisan food markets vie for your custom with Michelin Star restaurants and peaceful, riverside afternoons can be followed by buzzing, social evenings. Living at Ninewells, you’ll be close enough to feel the beat of the city’s vibrant heart and benefit from its rich diversity.

As the home of the University of Cambridge, the city is widely known as a hallowed seat of learning. Perhaps it’s this academic environment,
or the fact that cycling is the preferred mode of transport, but the place is certainly imbued with a genteel air. Characterised by historic architecture, pedestrianised streets, open-air markets, picturesque green spaces and lazy riverside pastimes, Cambridge is truly a beautiful city in which to live and work.

Cambridge, today, is a hotbed of innovation. It’s a phenomenon that’s developed organically, but now the city and surrounding area, dubbed Silicon Fen, is home to an established cluster of science and technologybased businesses. Focusing on software, electronics, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, the area is one of the most important technology centres in Europe. Companies like Apple, Amazon, ARM, AstraZeneca, Google, Microsoft, Toshiba and Spotify have all set up camp here. Of course, as a world leader in pioneering research and providing a ready source of graduates, the University is at the heart of it all.

If the number of restaurants is a measure of Cambridge folk’s passion for food, they must be in love. From simple fare to fine dining, from
chefs championing local produce to exotic international cuisines, there’s good food to suit every taste and mood. There are even two establishments holding Michelin Stars. But let’s not forget the many coffee shops, cafés, tea rooms, patisseries, crêperies, bakers and
delicatessens. Cambridge also has a passion for the outdoors which means you’ll find diners on rooftops, pavements and of course, by the river.

Look further afield, as far as the surrounding villages, and you’re likely to unearth some of the finest eateries in the region. Those looking for
the freshest local produce will find the best at the Gog Magog Farm Shop, which is just down the road from Ninewells. This delightful local
institution features a charming café and is home to The Shack, serving up some of Cambridge’s best street food and live music.


The city is known globally as the home of the University of Cambridge, an iconic institution, founded in 1209 and regarded as one of the top universities in the world. Cambridge’s other seat of further education is Anglia Ruskin University. Together the two campuses are responsible for broadening the minds of around 30,000 students a year. But the academic excellence doesn’t rest there. From primary schools to further education colleges, Cambridgeshire boasts numerous acclaimed learning establishments for its younger students too.

Transport Links

Conveniently positioned, Ninewells is within easy reach of the area’s best schools, as well as its leisure, recreation and healthcare facilities. Access to such amenities is essential to create a flourishing, sustainable community, and crucial to this access is good connectivity. Happily, Cambridge boasts a brilliant public transport system with a comprehensive bus service. There are a number of routes serving Ninewells, with the nearest bus stops around 200 metres away. From these, you can pick up various frequent services that run to the centre, the train station and outlying areas.

Famously, cycling is a favourite mode of transport in Cambridge. Ninewells’ own cycle paths will connect to a comprehensive system
of off-road cycle routes and cycle lanes that link to the city and wider cycle network.

The city also has excellent road access via the M11 and A14, and it’s well-served by rail connections. From Ninewells, it’s just a few minutes’ drive or cycle ride to Cambridge station, and regular trains run non-stop to London King’s Cross, with a journey time of 48 minutes.

Other direct rail destinations include Liverpool Street, Norwich, Birmingham, Peterborough, Ipswich and Stansted Airport. Cambridge North, due to open in 2018, will have direct services to Brighton and Gatwick Airport via London St. Pancras.
