Swaffham Prior is a quiet rural village deep in the Southern edge of the Fens, equidistant from the University City of Cambridge and the market town of Newmarket with Soham and Ely within easy access also. 16 Mill Hill boasts an enviable position within the serenity of the East Cambridgeshire countryside, with a stunning outlook on to farmland, horse paddocks and view of Newmarket racecourse beyond.
The property is located close to local amenities at both Burwell and Bottisham which include a sports centre. The A11 and A14 provide good access. Quy Mill is an excellent meeting place as well as providing a useful gym.
Potential buyers may be interested to note the beautiful Fenland walks are at hand. Indeed, it is one of the best-known walking areas in the country. 'Devil's Dyke' an ancient ridge is only moments away from the property which stands an impressive 10 meters high in places and provides unrivaled views of the surrounding countryside. Wicken Fen is also a short drive away, again one of the most important nature reserves in the country.

Local Area
Swaffham Prior is a village of just over 300 houses in South East Cambridgeshire, about 5 miles west of Newmarket (Suffolk) and 10 miles North East of Cambridge. Burwell, Reach and Swaffham Bulbeck are its immediately neighbouring villages. Swaffham Prior used to be known as Great Swaffham; Swaffham Prior and Swaffham Bulbeck together are often known as 'The Swaffhams' (not to be confused with the town of Swaffham in Norfolk). Just down the road to the East is the Devil's Dyke; an ancient earthwork. This provides good walking opportunities with views across the surrounding countryside and has some interesting plants growing on it. The National Trust's Wicken Fen Vision will extend the area of fen being restored to its natural state to include areas of fen within the parish. Cycle and walking routes being established in connection with this are readily accessible from the village.
