About Great Shelford, Cambridge
Great Shelford, a highly sought after Cambridgeshire village, reatins a lot of that wonderful small village feel. It benefits from a fine mix of Victorian and Edwardian architectural styles and local shops and great care is taken to retain the sense of it still being a village – not just an annexe to a city.
As well as being a very pleasant place to live, Great Shelford boasts an excellent range of local amenities. There’s a perfect balance. You will find everything you need here – independent shops, post office, health centre, high street banks and a library, all within easy reach.
There are lots of local clubs such as the W.I, cricket, rugby, tennis and bowls. A weekly country market, as well as a monthly farmer’s market provides an opportunity to purchase local produce. You will have a selection of three local pubs, an excellent restaurant and the Shelford Delicatessen to tempt your taste buds. Addenbrookes Hospital is conveniently close by should you require it.
Old School Court is the perfect place for those who enjoy an active lifestyle, getting out and about couldn’t be easier. There are lots of good trails for walkers to explore, such as the Wandlebury Country Park and Nature Reserve. Golfers are well served by the excellent facilities at the Gog Magog golf course, just a couple of miles away.
