Orwell is a very popular South Cambridgeshire village which offers easy access to Cambridge city centre and the popular market town of Royston which has high speed rail links to London.

Seller Insight

“We were already living in Orwell when the opportunity arose to purchase South Barn, so we knew the area very well. Located on the edge of the village, we could immediately appreciate the beautiful, far reaching views over open countryside from the first floor living room of the property. The spacious accommodation and layout worked well for us too, as our teenage daughters had their own space to relax and spend time with their friends,” recall the current owners.
“Orwell is a friendly little village that is equipped with all of the day to day essentials, including a welcoming pub and well stocked shop, as well as a busy village hall and the monthly Pannier market where local people sell their local produce. The area is well known for the quality and wide choice of restaurants, and we’re also within easy reach of Cambridge which has a fabulous range of shops and cultural activities to enjoy. It’s a great place to take part in outdoor activities as we can easily access the footpaths that meander through the countryside, as well as run in the grounds of nearby Wimpole Hall.”
“The walled courtyard garden to the rear of the property is well sheltered and not overlooked, so it’s perfect for relaxing, eating outside and entertaining. The front garden is open and spacious with a large driveway, accessed via a 5- bar gate. There is always something of interest to catch our eye, including squirrels, deer and a wide variety of birds, such as partridge, pheasants, woodpeckers, blue tits, goldfinch, robins and a local barn owl.”
“South Barn is a welcoming, family home where we have enjoyed many get-togethers with friends and family. We have plenty of spare rooms to accommodate our guests and the downstairs living room works well when we are entertaining, as we can be cooking in the kitchen and still be part of the conversation. The main living room on the first floor is also quite a feature as it is the largest room with high ceilings and beams, as well as having uninterrupted views over the open countryside.”
“We have lived here for 9 years and the location has been fabulous. Everything we need is close by and it is so easy to get around as we have good access to the A1 and M11 which is ideal for work and holidays. It’s a great area and we will miss the peace and quiet, as well as our lovely neighbours,” conclude the current owners.
