Bassingbourn is a pretty parish village, located in South Cambridgeshire, a couple of miles north of the town of Royston and just 14 miles from the city of Cambridge. The village is fortunate to have a network of 24 public rights of way extending over 13 miles, and another 1 mile of permissive paths, where landowners give permission for the public to walk. The network of paths gives ample opportunities for circular walks, and footpaths also link the parish with Whaddon, Melbourn, Litlington and Abington Pigotts.

The village has a number of facilities and shops, including a doctor's surgery, a dental surgery, a garage, sub-Post Office, coffee shop, chemist, hairdressers and general grocers. It also has two remaining pubs: The Hoops, occupying a 17th-century building in the village, and The Belle (formerly the Pear Tree) at North End. On the edge of the village, you will find located Bassingbourn Village College, Bassingbourn Community Primary School and Bassingbourn Pre-school, providing a continuation of education from the age of 2 1/2 up to school leaving age.

The Church of St Peter and St Paul is a stunning building with a rich history - older than the Church of England itself - and is pleasantly situated near the centre of the village, in an excellent rural setting among trees and hedges. There is a busy service schedule and many activities for residents of all ages to attend.

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 Bassingbourn, you can pick up the train line from the neighbouring village of Meldreth. 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 on the lookout for a home in a beautiful, countryside location, we encourage you to visit Bassingbourn. It's not one you want to miss!
