Trumpington Meadows is a new development of homes situated less than 3 miles from the city centre in the village of Trumpington. Located on the southwest side of Cambridge city, bordering Cherry Hinton to the east, Grantchester to the west and Great Shelford and Little Shelford to the southeast, Trumpington Meadows offers a growing and active community, modern housing, schooling and local businesses. Transport links are provided by regular bus services to Cambridge and the train station, airports and destinations further afield from the convenient Trumpington Park & Ride bus stop. There are some excellent cycle ways and a 148-acre scenic country park that is managed by The Wildlife Trust.
The country park is a spacious expanse of flowering meadows, riverside, woodland, hedgerow and parkland. This expansive nature reserve and country park sits alongside the River Cam and Byron’s Pool Local Nature Reserve. The country park is a place created for wildlife and for people to enjoy nature, explore diverse habitats and wander by the river and through flower-filled meadows. There is a Wildlife Trust office and garden, allotments, and a range of interpretation features and handcarved nature sculptures throughout the country park.
The area is built on a history of culture thanks to its connection to the river (where Lord Byron once swam) and nearby Grantchester – once home to poet Rupert Brooke and frequented by writers, intellectuals and scientists. Grantchester Meadows is a short walk from Trumpington Meadows and makes for a beautiful stroll to Newnham and Cambridge city.
