Affordable Homes in Cambridgeshire

Are you searching for affordable homes in Cambridgeshire? Well, this is the right place for you. Here at Accent Housing, we provide affordable and quality homes in Cambridgeshire and the surrounding areas.

Private renting is notorious for being expensive and it’s not very trusted by residents. But Accent Housing is different. We’re a housing association that you can trust and even benefit from. We don’t just aim to provide you with a home, but to improve your quality of life.

Whether you’re single, a couple, a family, or elderly, Cambridgeshire is a great place to settle down in.

In this blog, we’ll discuss what it’s like to live in Cambridgeshire and how you can rent from a housing association.

Is Cambridgeshire a Nice Place to Live?

England’s famously academic county is an excellent place to live. It has a bit of everything – historic towns and cities as well as miles of untouched countryside.

Small market towns and villages are thriving in Cambridgeshire and they make an ideal place to settle down for a quieter, community-orientated lifestyle.

There’s an incredible choice of some outstanding schools, an easy commute to London, and a high quality life in Cambridgeshire which makes it a popular place to live. Home to the world renowned University of Cambridge, this country is home to many galleries, art museums, concert halls, and boutiques.

With many miles of untouched countryside, Cambridgeshire has much to offer. Especially for those nature lovers. The county has many navigable waterways and the oldest national park in England, Wicken Fen. In Cambridgeshire, there’s also Nene Park and Ferry Meadows, along with more than 25 golf courses. We think that definitely gives you plenty to do.

Cambridgeshire’s proximity to London makes it a popular spot for people who want to get away from the bustling life of the city and be calm.

Affordable Homes in Cambridgeshire

When searching for a home, affordability is a very prioritised factor. And Cambridgeshire isn’t exactly the most affordable place to live.

That’s why, at Accent Housing, we aim to change that by providing affordable homes to those who need them.

Accent Housing has properties spread across multiple locations in Cambridgeshire that includes apartments, maisonettes, and homes.

Here’s a list of the locations we provide affordable homes in Cambridgeshire:

  • Cambridge
  • Ely
  • Fordham
  • Fulbourn
  • Huntingdonshire
  • Peterborough
  • Ramsey
  • Wittering

The best place to live in Cambridgeshire may not be Cambridge but Ely. This beautiful city is filled with old-time charm, seen in the 1,000 year old cathedral that took 300 years to complete. And Ely’s mainline train means that Cambridge is only a 20 minute commute and London’s King’s Cross only 75 minutes away.

Thanks to the university, we barely need to introduce Cambridge to you. Did you know that the University of Cambridge saw such figures as Stephen Hawking, Charles Darwin, and Sir David Attenborough?

For those that love the outdoors, Ramsey is the perfect area for you. It’s in close proximity to Great Fen, a fenland landscape spanning not one but two National Nature Reserves, Holme Fen and Woodwalten Fen.

There’s just as much for children to do, too – Leo’s Fun Zone, The Raptor Foundation, Wacky Warehouse, the zoo, and many more.
