Location Barrington is the quintessential English village with, reputedly, the biggest village green in the country. The high street runs through the middle of the green and is flanked by a wealth of delightful period homes and cottages. Within the village itself is a popular and well-frequented public house, an excellent village store with post office and an excellent primary school. Secondary schooling is available at Melbourn Village College or the many private schools in Cambridge, some 8 miles away. Further and more varied amenities are available in nearby Melbourn, Haslingfield and Harston. For the commuter there are railway stations in neighbouring Shepreth and Foxton (both within walking and/or cycling distance). The market town of Royston (only 6 miles) offers further shopping as well as a railway station offering a non-stop regular rail service into London Kings Cross. The location also has very good access to major road networks including the M11, A1 and Stansted Airport.
