Location

Shepreth is one of South Cambridgeshire's most picturesque spots surrounded by undulating countryside, tucked away just off the A10 and comparatively unspoilt in recent years by any major development schemes. Cambridge is 8 miles and Royston is about 5 miles distant and there is a bus service that runs to both from the village. The mainline train station offers fast access to Cambridge and London Kings Cross and the M11 is just a short drive away. Educational facilities are available at nearby Barrington and Melbourn. Shepreth Wildlife Park is a great attraction for families and there are also two public houses; The Green Man at Frog End and The Plough on the High Street. There is also a tea shop 'Teacake' on Meldreth Road and The Cambridge Motel on the A10 which provides bar and restaurant facilities as well as a motel.
