Barton is amongst the most desirable of the south Cambridge villages, thanks to its charming character and countryside, which surrounds it providing numerous pleasant walks including to Grantchester and Coton nature reserve, but also due to its excellent commuter links into Cambridge and London.
There are purpose built cycleways alongside the A603 providing a particularly good commute into Cambridge by bike and a bridleway over to Grantchester which serves as part of a 4.5 mile cycle commute to Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.
Access to the M11 is approximately 1 mile away whilst the nearest train stations are Foxton and Great Shelford, which are approximately 6 and 5 miles away, providing twice hourly trains into London and Cambridge.
The village has a particularly good range of facilities for its size including a post office and general store, two pubs, a recreation ground, meadow and an Ofsted ‘Good’ Primary School that feeds into Comberton Village College and Sixth Form. It is also home to Burwash Manor Barns, a collection of independent shops, a café and exhibition venue that runs various events throughout the year.
