LOCATION Located on the edges of Huntingdon, Godmanchester is a quiet suburban town that has a lot to offer people of all ages. Whether you work in and around London or Cambridge and want an escape from the bustle of city life or would prefer to raise a family surrounded by the beautiful English countryside, Godmanchester could be the perfect match for you.

Huntingdon mainline station with direct, fast access to London is located within cycling & walking distance of Godmanchester, as are main road links such as the A1 and A14 providing access to Cambridge.

The town has a long and rich history dating back to the Roman era and it is believed to have been occupied continuously for well over 2,000 years. The River Great Ouse runs through its centre and to the rear of the property which is characterised by the impressive Chinese bridge landmark that was originally built in 1827.

The bridge gives access to Portholme Meadow, which is a 106-hectare (260-acre) biological Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation. This is an alluvial flood meadow, and one of the largest areas of grassland being uncommonly flat, the watercourses have some unusual invertebrates, including the nationally restricted dragonfly Libellula fulva.

Additionally, there are some lovely scenic locations to explore in and around Godmanchester. At the end of Cow Lane, you'll find Godmanchester Nature Reserve that covers 59 hectares and sits just to the south of the River Great Ouse. It features four lakes and plenty of grassland with lots of habitat for a variety of wildlife. Godmanchester Riverside is another beautiful spot that has play parks for children and a ferry that travels to and from Brampton Mill, and you can visit the largest wild meadow in England at Portholme which can be seen directly from the stunning gardens of The Avenue.

Godmanchester offers an abundance of social events for families of all ages. Whether you are looking at joining in on annual events such as Godmanchester Gala Day, Picnic in the Park, Easter Egg Hunts & Scarecrow Competitions, there is something for everyone.
The schools in Godmanchester are well-regarded and you'll find the primary school situated in the town within a few minutes walk, with Hinchingbrooke Secondary School located in Huntingdon. There's a dentist, doctors and a chemist all nearby too.

Pop along to The Exhibition pub and restaurant in town which has a wonderful outdoor garden that is perfect for the summer and an open fire indoors for late autumn and winter. Other pubs of note include The Royal Oak which offers a riverside setting and The White Hart which features a 15th century bar, an outdoor garden area and serves up traditional pub food.
