Make yourself at home in a charming Cambridgeshire town
Our new development Abbot Walk enjoys a semi-rural location on the edge of Chatteris, a charming and well-equipped town set between Cambridge and Peterborough. With a range of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, there’s something for everyone.
Chatteris is situated in the scenic Fens, between the larger towns of Huntingdon, March and Ely. Lined with attractive brick buildings, the centre is home to a good range of amenities including independently-owned shops; cafes, pubs, restaurants and takeaways, and several convenience stores. There’s an Aldi just 0.3 miles from the development for the weekly shop, or you could visit Chatteris market which takes place every Friday and sells locally sourced produce. All the practicalities of everyday life are provided too, with a number of local schools and healthcare facilities including a pharmacy, dental practice, GP and two nearby hospitals. You’ll also find a library and community hub, museum, leisure centre and community cinema – all providing ways to meet people in your new home.
The semi-rural location means you’ll never be far from rolling countryside and outdoor attractions – or, when you fancy a busier setting, the cities of Peterborough and Cambridge with their numerous shops and attractions are less than an hour’s drive away.
The unique landscape of the Fens means there are endless places to explore nearby, from relaxing walks at Little Acre Fen Pocket Park, to adrenaline-fuelled activities at North London Skydiving Centre. Sports enthusiasts have a wide array of facilities to choose from, including Lakeside Lodge Golf Centre, Witcham Equestrian Centre, a Total Wipeout style course at Fenland Aqua Park, and of course the activities on offer at the local leisure centre and recreation ground.
Families with children of all ages will benefit from the range of schools in the area. There are several nurseries in Chatteris, primary schools including Glebelands Primary School and Thomas Eaton Primary School, and secondary schools Cromwell Community College and Abbey College Ramsey – all within easy driving distance of the development. Abbot Walk will also include a play area with climbing equipment, making this a great choice for families.
Despite the peaceful surroundings, Chatteris is well-positioned for reaching larger centres. The town sits on the A141, which leads north to March and south to Huntington. Peterborough can be reached by car in around 40 minutes, while the A142 provides access to Ely in 21 minutes and historic Cambridge in 50 minutes. The nearest train station is in March, which operates direct regular services to Cambridge, Peterborough and Ely, with connecting routes to London.
