Are you looking to buy a house in a charming, idyllic village in Cambridgeshire? Maybe you already have and you’re looking for things to do? We’ve put a short guide together for you featuring two desirable villages, Warboys and Fenton, to show you what they have to offer!
Warboys is a delightful village situated within the scenic Cambridgeshire countryside, offering its own shops and amenities. Located just a 15 minute drive from both Huntingdon and the historical market town of St Ives, this offers you access to several supermarkets, sports centres, restaurants and cafes.
The village of Warboys boasts an array of local amenities for everyday needs, such as, its very own Spar, chemist, post office, sports & social club and proving very popular with an impressive 4.8 out of 5 star reviews on google, the local bakery, ‘Windmill Bakery’, offers all you could possibly want including catering for special occasions! When you’re in the mood to eat out, Warboys offers a local fish & chip shop, chinese take away and a charming gastropub.
The Royal Oak was a traditional pub from the 1900’s but is now transforming to a gastropub which offers a family-friendly atmosphere, with food and drink available as well as an outdoor soft play area for children, this gastropub really does cater for all! Warboys has its very own non league football team Warboys Town F.C. If football isn't quite your thing then there are plenty of other spots for you to visit in the village.

Right at the centre of the village there is a historical landmark, The Weir, in which people used to be baptised in up until the 1930’s!
And just a 6 minute drive from the village is Warboys & Wistow Woods, which is an 8.5 hectare nature reserve with high conservation value. This is the perfect place for a relaxing walk, take your dog and really be at one with nature.
