Forbes Close is off Lime Avenue and is part of Countryside Homes' flagship Aura development, accessed from Long Road and perfectly placed for Addenbrooke's and access to the city from the south. The property will soon benefit from its close proximity to the Cambridge South station which is due to open in 2025.

Trumpington is a thriving, fast growing part of the city that still manages to retain its village identity and sense of community. It is exceptionally well located for access into the Addenbrooke's campus, out to the M11 and into the city by car, bus, guided bus, one of a few purpose built cycle routes, or even an enthusiastic walk. The city's mainline station can be easily reached along the guided busway cycleway without having to mix with car traffic at all.
The area has three primary schools and a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school built in 2016 with excellent sporting facilities. Many of the city's finest private schools are within easy cycling distance. There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, barber, GP surgery, pharmacy, library and community centre. There is a major Waitrose supermarket and a Sainsbury's local.
Trumpington Meadows nature reserve links Trumpington through to Byron's Pool and Grantchester and there is a second country park between Trumpington and the Addenbrooke's campus. Various bridleways and footpaths lead immediately out into the countryside towards Harston, Haslingfield, Barton and Grantchester.
