The thriving town of Royston has a vast range of local amenities including schools, restaurants, shops and a mainline station which provides a commuter service to London Kings Cross (35 minutes). Royston is well placed for access to other towns including Cambridge which is about 14 miles north and major routes including the A1 and A505 and M11 which are all within a few miles driving distance.  

DENMARK HOUSE As you arrive at Denmark House the Victorian elegance is clear. Built in 1874 by a local Danish Red cattle breeder (hence the name), the present family is only the second to live there. From cattle to apples the property originally consisted an extensive working orchard. After losing a son in 1917 to the First World War the house was passed down from father to daughters. Over the last decade Denmark House has been lovingly restored back to the family home it once was, keeping much of its Victorian charm and apple tree alive.
