Fenstanton is a large village lying to the south of the River Ouse around two miles (6.44 kilometres) south of St. Ives and 13 miles (20.92 kilometres) north-west of Cambridge, easily accessed by the A14 and A1. With the expansion to A14 planned for completion in the summer of 2020, Fenstanton will benefit hugely from these improvements, as will the other local villages. 

Village Information

With a well served high street, good schools and good access to main roads, Fenstanton is an attractive place to live for a wide range of people. This historic Cambridgeshire village is home to the church of St. Peter and St. Paul, as well as a Fenstanton United Reformed Church. Schooling is provided by the Fenstanton & Hilton Primary School, rated good by Ofsted and the village is in catchment for Swavesey Village College, also rated outstanding in a recent inspection. Another draw for buyers is the proximity of the A1307 (formerly the A14) which is now used for local traffic meaning journey times into Cambridge are much quicker. There are beautiful walks in both the village and the nature reserve in the neighbouring village of Fen Drayton.


The village has good facilities including a convenience store, vehicle repair shop, a hotel, fish & chip shop, post office store, pharmacy, hairdresser, bakery, farm shop, and private day-care nursery. On the edge of the village is a small petrol and service station, with a fast-food restaurant and a hotel. The village has two pubs, The Crown & Pipes which has a sports bar, pool table, jukebox, a quiet snug area, and large beer garden. The Duchess pub and restaurant serves traditional British food within a 17th-century building and is well known locally for its excellent outdoor eating area and traditional interior.
