Named after the previous owner, this much loved semi-detached family home, next door to the local primary school, provides spacious yet cosy accommodation in the heart of the pretty Cambridgeshire village of Offord D’Arcy. Close by lies Godmanchester, a historic and scenic town situated on the River Great Ouse, in the Ouse Valley. There has been a settlement here since Viking times and the town retains much of its Roman history where history buffs can visit Porch Museum, as it is home to many local artefacts and is a treasure trove of information about the history of the town. Also a ‘must visit’ is the university city of Cambridge with its guided walks, numerous museums, including the famous Fitzwilliam, punting on the River Cam, open top bus tours and great shops and restaurants. In fact, to fit it all in, you will need to make several visits, and Cambridge’s network of park and ride systems make this very easy to do. Alternatively you can pop in to Huntingdon and take the train, which also runs to Ely with its magnificent cathedral, or even be in the heart of London in around an hour. Even closer lies Grafham Water, which offers water sports and is a great place for a leisurely stroll, picnic or family day out. Whatever you decide to do, you’ll undoubtedly be pleased to return to Pam’s Plaice and enjoy dinner in the light and airy conservatory, which just seems to bring the outside in, or in the pretty rear garden, while you plan adventures yet to be had. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 200 yards.
