Our home

Our home is only five years old but it has been built to look like an old cottage. It is the end house of block of three white cottages. It has a very large open plan kitchen, dining area with a sitting area over looking the rear garden .There are lots of windows so there is plenty of light and easy access to the garden through the two separate patio doors. There is also a separate lounge with TV and cosy gas fire. In the hallway is a downstairs WC. On the first floor we have three bedrooms, two doubles and a single, the master bedroom enjoys an En Suite with shower and a King Sized double bed. There is also a family bathroom with over bath shower. The whole house is painted in pastel colours. Outside we have a rear garden with Lawn and Patio , great for a glass of wine on a warm barmy evening. The side of the house has raised beds for growing vegetables
There is satellite TV and WiFi with a stand alone computer all available within the house.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Hilton is a small picturesque village, in the heart of the Cambridgeshire Countryside. Complete with thatched cottages, duck ponds, village green and a 300 years old grass maze of which there are only eight remaining in the Country. We have a village pub and shop and the village hall which hosts many events throughout the year. The area is very close to The Fens and is very flat, because of this we have a unique system of flow ponds through the village which help to prevent flooding, the local ducks love them and they visit our garden on a regular basis looking for food. It is a truly beautiful place to live.
Our nearest Town is St Ives which is 3 miles North and is the birth place of Oliver Cromwell that well known figure of History. It's located on the Great River Ouze, a great place for a river trip and picnic next to the river. The town boasts many small pretty tea rooms and restaurants. The Historic Bridge across the river which is no longer open to traffic has a very small chapel in the centre of it's arches and the bridge provides a wonderful spot to watch the passing boats and to feed the swans. On Monday there is a vibrant town market to catch the bargains and fresh local produce. Cambridge is 14 miles away and easy accessible via the guided bus way, the City boasts some seven University's and many are open to visitors along with the museums. There is also a large number of major retailers in the City and there's something for everyone there. A must is a punt down the River Cam, it's a fantastic way to see the City and to get the history from the punters, many of whom are students so they know their stuff. We are about 75 minutes form the Norfolk Coast with all it's beautiful coastal walks and beaches, you can also go seal watching on one of the many boats plying their trade in the area. London is 55 minutes away by train form Huntingdon Station which is 5 miles away. An extremely easy way to visit the Capital with all it's fantastic places to see and visit.
