LOCATION The village of Fen Drayton lies approximately 9 miles from the University City of Cambridge, for history, art and culture, restaurants and shops, five miles from St Ives, a historic market town, and nine miles to Huntingdon train station.
The village itself is very picturesque with the High Street being the centre and home to a quaint thatched pub. The RSPB nature reserve, Fen Drayton Lakes, well known for wetland birds, is just a short walk.
The guided bus stops within the nature reserve and takes passengers to Cambridge along what was previously the train line; this service also continues to Addenbrookes hospital and west bound to St Ives. Alongside the guided bus route is a cycle path, often used by walkers and runners alike.
From the small but successful Primary school, children progress to Swavesey Village College, rated outstanding by Ofsted.
