Highdene Road is in Cherry Hinton, a highly sought-after village, conveniently situated about 3 miles east of Cambridge and within the City boundary. The area is incredibly well served by a traditional High Street with an excellent range of shops, pubs, restaurants and takeaways plus leisure and health facilities. There is also a major Tesco supermarket off Yarrow Road.
There are two very good primary schools which feed Netherhall secondary school.
The area is highly popular with commuters thanks to its excellent access Addenbrooke’s (1.5 miles), Cambridge railway station (2 miles) and on to the city centre (3.5 miles) and also with those looking for a traditional community with excellent day-to-day facilities that feels close to the city but retains its own identity.
Cherry Hinton benefits from having excellent bus links into the centre of Cambridge and easy access on to the A14 for anyone commuting elsewhere.
