Local area

A serene contrast to the energy of the city.

Located within the Trumpington Conservation Area and Green Belt land, this protected setting provides a peaceful contrast to the city. Closer to home, explore riverside walks, historic villages and wildlife from your unique doorstep.

After a few moments, being soothed by birdsong and the comforting peal of church bells, it is easy to see why these surroundings inspired some of the greatest English poets. Wander in wildlife and wild-flower meadows in spring and summer. Walk among turning leaves in autumn and across parkland on frosty winter mornings.

There’s year-round bathing at Byron’s Pool – named after poet Lord Byron who swam here – and punting in Cambridge where you can be within minutes. Sample the city’s ever-flourishing arts and food scenes, open-air markets and world-famous architecture.

Leave the bustle behind and be back to the calm of Anstey Hall Barns minutes later, perhaps enjoying a nightcap whilst watching the sun set over this completely unique, historical scene.
