Orwell is an attractive, traditional Cambridgeshire village about 7 miles south west of Cambridge and a similar distance north of Royston.
The centre of the village carries very little through traffic and its compact size gives it a close sense of community aided by a thriving primary school, handsome dining pub, general convenience store, post office and hairdresser.
There is a large recreation ground and a Parish Council owned hillside nature reserve that is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest. A 15th Century Parish Church overlooks the village and there is a village hall and Methodist Church. There are tennis and football clubs, an amdram society, singing group, gardening group and golf society.
The National Trust’s Wimpole Hall and Home Farm are nearby and can be accessed by a network of footpaths running off Hillside and out into the countryside.
For the commuter the A603 gives easy access into west Cambridge by Barton Road or on to the M11 in about 6 miles. Royston’s mainline station gives access to Kings Cross frequently and quickly, often in under 40 minutes.
