The Cambridgeshire region
Cambridge is a world famous historic university city that lies at the heart of East Anglia and within easy reach of London (45 minutes by train).
East Anglia is an incredibly varied region and regional attractions include:
Newmarket horse racing and National Stud - 12 miles see: http://www.newmarketracecourses.co.uk/concerts/2012-concert-dates.
The city of Ely and its cathedral set within the black Fen country, which also includes the wildlife reserve at Wicken Fen.
Suffolk - Constable country which includes Lavenham, Long Melford and Southwold.
Plus many more. The owners will be pleased to advise where possible.
Local attractions include the University of Cambridge and a punt trip through the backs of the colleges is not to be missed although it can be just as nice taking a punt upriver and picnic at Grantchester.
Throughout the summer months there are a number of open air concerts and plays in the area including the famous Cambridge Folk Festival.
Within one mile of the property is the Magog down and the adjacent Wandlebury Roman settlement and Roman road.
Within 3 miles at Duxford is the Imperial Museum with everything from Concord to Spitfires and tanks to a B52 bomber.
