LOCATION The village of Longstanton offers easy access to Cambridge via the guided bus way, a range of shops including Co op, doctors surgery, sports ground and well regarded Primary School and Pre School. Neighbouring the new town of Northstowe, Longstanton falls within catchment of the newly built Secondary School and Swavesey Village College.
VILLAGE INFORMATION For most of its history the village was split into two parishes: Long Stanton All Saints and Long Stanton St. Michael and was not officially amalgamated into one village until 1953.
The village has recently seen a big influx of all styles of new build homes from major developers such as George Wimpey, Kier, Charles Church and Persimmon which has resulted in huge growth for the village.
Longstanton is an area of interest to many buyers from Cambridge because of the advantage of the guided busway which runs every 7 minutes into Cambridge and then onto Cambridge station and Addenbrooke's hospital. The village is also only 2.5 miles (4.02 kilometres) from the A14 and 5 miles (8.05 kilometres) from the M11.
There is a good community spirit within the village which holds various events including a local market and summer fayre. You can also find regular events and classes at the primary school or Northstowe Secondary School and regular sports events are held at the recreation ground and The Pavilion.
FACILITIES Facilities in Longstanton include a primary school, a village institute, doctors and dentist surgery, veterinary surgery, public house, village store with post office, fish and chip shop and a co-operative store. The village will benefit from a wider choice of facilities on offer from the neighbouring purpose built town of Northstowe that is currently in development.
