Cherry Hinton’s sense of community was built over centuries, and offers a style of modern living sought after today. From the village hall hub and Cherry Hinton leisure centre to local hostelries, community pub, and a High Street for bread made by craft bakers using local millers, pharmacy and post office, cycle store and convenience store - and Superstore down the road - it is extremely well-served. With both primary and senior level schooling conveniently close to home, whether you are a growing family or looking to downsize and make the most of what Cherry Hinton has to offer.
The city is the stunning backdrop for all-year-round events. The street names from Trinity to Magdalene are world renowned, but it is also the premium names from Crew and Coast, Hobbs and Hotel Chocolat to Apple and flagship John Lewis that add to the appeal of modern Cambridge. As do the ultra-stylish glass atrium of the Grand Arcade mall, and sheer choice of watering holes, cafés, restaurants and bars. There is a Vue cinema and the Cambridge Corn Exchange, a regional scale venue attracts performances from global bands, comedy names and companies, but it is the skyline of the city that is the stunning backdrop for all-year-round events – from the Strawberry Fair on Midsummer Common to Shakespeare Festival for picnics in secret university gardens on summer evenings, or Jazz in the Park on Jesus Green. The Cambridge Folk Festival, now one of the most famous folk festivals in the world, takes place at Cherry Hinton Hall, placing the village firmly on the map.
Excellent amenities, unrivalled tradition. College quadrangles and cobbled squares and bridges across the Cam meet a 21st century city with a reputation as the UK’s own Silicon Valley and its leading role in science and technology. It all makes for a unique and vibrant place to be, from the coffee shops to the cultural life - and at Eastfields it is right on your doorstep.
Eastfields sits in a wonderful landscape just waiting to be explored. At Eastfields village life and city life are both close to hand, but it is as easy to enjoy the Cambridgeshire and neighbouring Suffolk landscape, just waiting to be explored. Just three miles away, Wandlebury Country Park offers miles of woodland, wildflower meadows grazed by Highland cattle, an Iron Age Hillfort steeped in legend, and ideal spots for a BBQ. Watch the seasons change from carpets of snowdrops heralding spring, the cowslips and butterflies of summer, burnished autumn colours, and sparkling frosts on winter walks. You are also just 20 minutes’ drive from Newmarket Racecourse with world-class flat racing and top racing names - and some of the biggest names in entertainment at the Après Racing concerts. Travel for work or play, with ease – it is a 15 minute cycle ride to the railway station, many Citi buses serve the area, and Eastfields sits within a golden triangle of the M11, A14 and A11, with the M25 and A1(M) easily accessed.
