Castle Camps is a pretty, sought-after village with a highly regarded primary school, inn, parish church and recreation ground. Sainsbury's superstore at Hanchett End is just a few miles away and there is secondary schooling at Linton College. The fine old market town of Saffron Walden is approximately 8 miles to the south-west, with the university city of Cambridge to the north-west. Cambridge is a vibrant, historical city and an important centre for employment. The village is lucky to be so conveniently located. The M11 access points and railway stations, with trains to Liverpool Street, are within easy reach.

From Saffron Walden take the Ashdon Road out of town, leading into the village of Ashdon itself. Take the second turning right, signposted Castle Camps. Drive down the long hill to a 'T' junction, turning right towards Castle Camps and then drive on into the village. In the centre of the village, by the primary school, turn right. Go round a sharp right-hand bed and Goodwoods Cottage will be found on the right-hand side just as you are about to leave the village.
