Milton is the first village immediately north of Cambridge. It was probably mentioned in the Domesday Book, most villages say they were mentioned in the Domesday Book, whatever the Domesday Book is. If you’re the uncompromising type who demands both village life and city culture it doesn’t come much closer together than Milton and Cambridge. And if that’s not enough, Milton has a massive Tesco, a primary school, a big sports field with a community centre, some pubs, a place you can get metal powder coated, various shops and all manner of other village facilities, plus a fab country park with lakes and paths and a café and trees and a playground and everything you could dream of a country park having.

You can even walk from the park on to the tow path by the Cam and straight into town past swans. It’s probably faster, though, to hop on a bike and whizz over the dedicated bridge over the A14 which drops you onto Cowley Road and easily to the science park or Cambridge North Railway Station. Still not convinced? How about a Park and Ride on your doorstep, a yearly maize maze, a vet and, though it probably goes without saying, a footgolf centre.
