Little Shelford is one of the most highly sought-after south Cambridge villages and stands about 2 miles / 3.5 km south of the City boundary. The majority of the village is within a Conservation Area which has protected its charm and ensured it has not been swallowed up by major development over the years.
It is a thriving community with a modern village hall, a large recreation ground with a brand new sports pavilion, a charming phone box library, The Navigator pub and Thai restaurant and a Chinese takeaway / fish and chip shop. The OFSTED ‘Good’ village primary school is just across the border into Great Shelford and there are excellent further facilities in that larger village including a post office, a butcher, a chemist, two supermarkets, hairdressers, GP surgery and dentist.
For the commuter there are good cycle routes into the City and to Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Biomedical Campus, Junction 11 of the M11 is about 2.5 miles / 4 km away and Great Shelford mainline station (Cambridge and London Liverpool).
