Melbourn is a large English parish village, nestled in the far southwest of Cambridgeshire, just 3 miles from the town of Royston and 11 miles from the city of Cambridge. The village has enjoyed a long history of occupation, stemming from the presence of springs and the River Mel, rising at Melbourn Bury. The river is particularly attractive because it is often clear and shallow, displaying chalk and gravel through its glittering water. There are many countryside walks to enjoy, including several ancient trackways that cross through the parish.

Melbourn is a bustling village, full of life, and offers residents all the amenities they could possibly need, including two village shops, a pharmacy, a doctor's and dentist surgery, two traditional villages pubs, the highly regarded Sheene Mill restaurant and hotel, as well as a spa just opposite. There are a number of parks and endless groups and clubs for all age groups. In terms of schooling, you have a number of pre-school options, a primary and secondary school within the village. There are two churches, including the All Saints' Church, which dates back to the 13th Century and offers regular services and activities for residents.

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. Also, from Melbourn, you can pick up the train line from the neighbouring village of Meldreth, and this is even within walking distance. 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 are looking for the benefits of a town while in a countryside location, we recommend visiting Melbourn to find your forever home!
