Kingston is the capital of Jamaica, the first name of Hull and somewhere just outside of London it sits Upon-Thames but to the people of Cambridgeshire it’s none of those things. It’s a pretty little village about 7 miles west of Cambridge, with a population of just over 200. It’s not a village you pass through by accident as the A603 bypasses it to the south and the B1046 to the north so it’s pleasantly peaceful. You therefore don’t move to Kingston for its lively club scene or sushi bars (although there is the Cambridge Club Music Festival at nearby Childerley Hall once a year), you move there for its quietness, country walks and rides and laid-back loveliness.

Cambridge Country Club with its golf course, gym, spa and pool is just north of the village towards Bourn and you can get your day-to-day shopping at Comberton (2 miles). There’s a primary school in Bourn, secondary and sixth forms in Comberton too. If you and the dog are both feeling fit you can walk along bridleways and lanes to the National Trust’s Wimpole Estate and Eversden woods to the south of the village. And remember, this idyllic rural lifestyle doesn’t mean moving to the middle of nowhere, you’re only 7 miles west of Cambridge, that’s about as close as Upon-Thames is to actual London.
