Great Shelford is one of the most sought-after villages south of the City thanks to its easy access to town and Addenbrooke’s by road, regular buses, car-free purpose-built cycleways and train from its mainline railway station that also goes direct to London Liverpool Street.
The historic village centre has an excellent range of amenities including two small supermarkets, a convenience store, a deli, hairdressers, doctors, dentist, dispensing chemist, two pubs, a wine bar, restaurants and more. The primary school is very well regarded and there are various community facilities and social clubs. The large recreation ground has a new pavilion, tennis club and sports pitches and annually hosts the excellent Shelford Feast Festival.
It is a great community for those looking for a balance of convenience and traditional village feel and offers the real possibility of living day-to-day without the need to regularly drive out of the village.
