Location - Orwell
Orwell is a highly sought-after rural village in South Cambridgeshire, situated just 9 miles from the city of Cambridge, 7 miles from the town of Royston, and a stone’s throw from the locally renowned National Trust property, Wimpole Hall. The grounds and surrounding area offer locals idyllic walks, wildlife spotting, and further means of escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Interestingly, the Prime Meridian line passes the eastern edge of Orwell and is one of many features of this village’s rich history. Orwell’s St. Andrew’s Church, for example, was founded around 1150AD and has been sympathetically restored over the years. The church still offers regular services and activities, and is very much a focal point for visitors and residents passing through the village.

Orwell has a very active community, encouraging neighbouring villages to join in on activities also. The village hall often hosts farmers markets, and there are a wide range of clubs and groups to join, such as Art, Bowls, Film, Football, Gardening, Local History, Singing, and Tennis. There is a very regular bus service, a mobile library, a village shop, a post office and a primary school. The Chequers gastropub is also known as being a local gem, offering classic British and Oriental dishes, using locally grown ingredients, and providing a great service in a relaxed country environment.

The village’s proximity to Royston means that residents have access to the town’s many other amenities, such as the mainline train station offering regular fast services to both Cambridge and London Kings Cross. There is also a leisure centre, sports clubs, dentist’s surgeries, and highly-regarded schools for all ages. The A1M and M11 are within a 20-minute drive via the A10/A505, and London Stansted and Luton Airports are both 30-minutes away.

If you’re looking to purchase in the area, we highly recommend giving this lovely village a visit!
