Only those that have punted along the River Cam, taking in the sights of the famous College ‘Backs’ will truly understand the magic of Cambridge.

But Cambridgeshire is so much more than this tourist day trip vision of the city. It is a diverse and varied county with a range of interesting towns and villages offering a wide variation in the cost of living and house prices.

The area’s rich heritage, beautiful countryside and charming culture combine to make this one of the most desirable places to live and work in the country.

If you are looking to relocate, we can offer a relocation package up to £8000.

This is a truly exciting time to live and work in Cambridgeshire. The region has long-term plans to build carbon neutral, sustainable housing. Most notably in the surrounding Greater Cambridge area where there are plans to build 3,900 new homes at North East Cambridge, 2,950 at the Cambridge airport site, 1,950 homes at Cambourne and 1,000 at Eddington. There is even a proposal to bring forward development of a new town at the former Waterbeach Barracks site.

All this excitement and development is not just exclusive to the Greater Cambridge area. Peterborough, Fenland and surrounding areas have recently been awarded £3.4 million from the Government’s ‘Level Up’ scheme after a successful bid by Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authorities. The funding will see a focus on regenerating communities, with investments in skills, business and employment.

Aside from the buzz of new developments across the region, Cambridgeshire already has tonnes to offer. There is a myriad of historical towns and villages to be discovered and explored.
