Little Shelford is largely a conservation area and as such enjoys the distinction of being one of the county's most sought after villages. It lies 5 miles south of Cambridge and is surrounded by some of the best countryside in the area over which there are many walks. Some facilities are available in the village including a bus service and the Parish Church is close by. However the main shopping centre of Woollards Lane in Great Shelford is about a mile away where there is a primary school, library, pharmacy, health centre, recreation ground and numerous shops. Great Shelford mainline station is also nearby and Junction 11 of the M11 is within a few minutes drive. Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Cambridge Biomedical Campus are within easy reach.
