Poppyfields - a new Cambridgeshire development

19th January 2022

Abbey announces upcoming development in Cambridgeshire.

Construction is set to commence in the coming months on this new site where the development will provide a mix of 3 and 4 bedroom homes located to the north and south of Bartlow Road in the popular village of Linton.

Hidden away in rural Cambridgeshire, Linton continues to grow in popularity among those who want to leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind. Thanks to its array of restaurants, shops, artisan bakers, pubs with contemporary menus and craft beers, commended schools and the easy commute, Linton has recently become one of the region’s most unexpected property hotspots.

Linton has some charming tourist attractions including Linton Zoo, which focusses on conservation and education, where you can encounter rare and exotic creatures, many of which are endangered species.

There is also Chilford Hall, one of England’s oldest established vineyards that still produces award-winning wines. The picturesque 18-acre site is home to 17,000 vines and as the site regularly hosts wine tasting events. It’s a destination with a profound sense of individuality, wherever you look there is something of beauty and interest for each visitor.

The high street plays host to lots of independent businesses including a tea shop and art gallery but also has a post office, pharmacy and hairdressers for your convenience.

The restaurants all come with high diner satisfaction, with special mention to the beloved Dog & Duck pub which serves fresh, local food all homemade and a great picturesque riverside garden. There’s also the Crown Inn, which has won awards and accolades over recent years and offers highly recommended food. For something a bit different, there is also the Linton Tandoori or fresh food can also be picked up at the farmers’ market on the first Saturday of every month over at Linton Village College.

The drive from Linton to Cambridge takes less than half an hour along the A1307, while a journey on the number 13 bus from the town to the city takes 33 minutes on average. When cycling, it takes 54 minutes along the 10.5 mile route from Linton to the city.

There are four schools within a mile of Linton, all of which are highly commended by Ofsted. The excellent Linton CofE Infant School and Linton Heights Junior School for younger children, Linton Village College for older students and the Granta School for any children with learning difficulties.

Stephen Holbrook, Sales Director at Abbey New Homes said: “Each new opportunity challenges us to build the best homes and communities we can and Linton is no different. We are excited to be embarking on this new venture in the scenic county of Cambridgeshire and we’re looking forward to bringing beautiful homes to the area and supporting local facilities”.
