Stylish living and open green spaces
Keen to be away from the crowds visiting Cambridge? North Cambridge might not be straight away on your radar, but there are many good reasons to make this your base whilst staying in Cambridge.
Eddington is Cambridge’s newest neighbourhood with something for both residents and visitors to Cambridge. Once upon a time, green pastures on the outskirts of Cambridge, now a new part of the city based on sustainable living, including homes, shops, a school, a state-of-the-art community centre and performing arts venue, restaurants, bars and street food park popping up every week.
A stone’s throw away from Cambridge’s historic centre
It’s perfectly positioned away from the crowds to explore Cambridge, visit the museums and theatres, shop at independents, and discover the thriving food scene. Easy to reach by taxi, bike and it only takes 20 minutes by foot to Kings College.
Situated just two miles from the historic centre of Cambridge and a few minutes from the M11, the Hyatt Centric Cambridge hotel and Turing Locke, the new lifestyle Aparthotel, which opened at Eddington in late September 2021, are perfect options to stay if you like to be away from the crowds. Both Hyatt and Turing Locke are pet friendly.
The best patissier in Cambridge
If you like Artisan bread and fine patisserie, you’re in for a treat staying at Eddington! Andrew opened his first Patisserie on Hill Road in 2017, and it soon became known as the best Patisserie in Cambridge. His creations are not only stunning, but a delight to eat too!
Funky Cocktail bar
Get in the swing of things with the funky cocktails of Dutch Cambridge. Expect a blend of cultures and international flavours, both food and cocktail wise. From the team behind the popular Mill Road Bar 196, Dutch offers re-imagined classics and rare spirits
Wood-fired cuisine and a Roof Top Bar
Based on the Finnish concept of wood-fired cooking and community dining, KOTA offers warm and inviting hospitality, focusing on using local, independent, and environmentally conscious producers and suppliers. KOTA is the creation of the team behind the popular bar and kitchen NOVI in Regent Street. Enjoy a relaxed brunch, lunch or dinner at the main restaurant Kota, pastries and an excellent cup of coffee at their coffee shop and amazing sunsets and cocktails at their rooftop bar and beer garden.
Open green spaces
Part of the previous meadows of this part of Cambridge is now an area of sustainable living and stunning gardens, including a central courtyard garden, offering alfresco courtyard dining and a cocktail bar.
The remainder of the 50 hectares of open and green spaces are a nature reserve for people to enjoy. The lakes at Brook Leys are not only a place to relax, but they also store the rainwater collected from across Eddington before it is treated and pumped back to homes for the use of things like washing machines and toilets.
