Elsworth is small and picturesque village just a few miles away from Boxworth and approx 10 miles (ca. 16 km) north-west of Cambridge. The village offers excellent access both the A14 and A428 and is located close to large superstores in the villages of Bar Hill and Cambourne.

Village Information

A popular attraction of the village is the brook and the beautiful thatched cottages that form around it, during the 2001 census, the parish’s population was of approximately 657 people meaning that properties for sale are seldom available.


The village has two pubs, a Holy Trinity Church, pre-school, recreation ground and local store with a post office. There is a highly regarded Church of England primary school, and the secondary school catchment is Swavesey Village College. This makes the village a very popular choice for local buyers.
