Four reasons to fall in love with Northstowe

02 December 2021

From its excellent transport links to the healthier way of life the town facilities – here are four reasons to find your next home in Northstowe

Northstowe is a modern Cambridgeshire town set just 8 miles north of Cambridge city centre.

Here, just by the waterparks, you’ll find Inholm, our architect-designed neighbourhood of award-winning Town House homes.

They’re big, beautiful, and easy to fall in love with – much like the town itself.

If you’ve not had the pleasure of visiting yet, here are four reasons to find your new home here and fall in love with Northstowe.

Northstowe guided bus way

01 — Location

Northstowe is a great commuter town if you work in Cambridge or London.

You can get to Cambridge city centre in approximately 20 minutes, and from Cambridge to London King’s Cross within 50 minutes.

No matter your preferred method of transportation, Northstowe is well-connected with tons of bike routes, walking routes, and a guided bus way (so you’ll never be stuck in traffic) – and you’ll be 9 minutes from the nearest A14 junction.

02 — Lifestyle

Northstowe was designed to promote physical and mental wellbeing and healthier lifestyles.

Yes, transport links to buzzing, nearby towns and cities are fantastic, but with everything you’ll find on your doorstep, you can have the best of both worlds.

Inholm was created in the most desirable quarter of Northstowe – on the peninsula, just by the waterparks, surrounded by the rolling Cambridgeshire fenlands and the school playing fields.

It’s the perfect place for morning jogs before work, lunchtime strolls with friends and colleagues, after school play, dog walks, and easy Sunday afternoons with the whole family.

Northstowe Secondary College

03 — Education

Northstowe is home to an excellent range of schools that cover every age group.

Among the schools are Pathfinder Northstowe, a C of E primary school; Martin Bacon Academy, an area special school for three-to-19-year-olds; and Northstowe Secondary College, the local secondary school – located just up the road from Inholm – with plans to open a sixth form in 2024.

NSC is dedicated to enriching the lives of the local community by sharing its state-of-the-art facilities including a football pitch, hockey pitch, tennis courts, netball courts, sports hall, playing fields, dance and yoga studios, theatre, and a future café, gym, and swimming pool.

04 — Community

More than just a town, Northstowe is a community with a heart.

It’s full of active, neighbourly people who love where they live and have a passion for bringing the whole town together.

The town is home to an unmissable food and drinks scene organised by local group Northstowe Foodies, you can join Northstowe Horticultural Association, partake in Northstowe Running Festival, and watch your children make friends while learning a new skill at martial arts club, Tiny Tigers at the Northstowe Community Wing.
