SHELFORD Great Shelford and Little Shelford, with Stapleford into which they merge at the base of the Gog Magog Hills, all ooze prosperity. This is where the Cambridge wealthy – businessmen and London commuters and academics – choose to make their homes. The houses are large and secluded, with parks and other green open spaces to enhance the feeling of spaciousness. There are plenty of shops, including a delicatessen. Period houses in Great Shelford’s Mingle Lane and Gog Magog Way, which leads to the Gog Magog Golf Club, are thought to have particular appeal. A six-bedroom house with mature gardens would cost £1.4m. You don’t have to be rich to live here: there is a development close to the station with three-bedroom starter homes at £170,000. Sawston Village College, one of the much-admired Cambridge Village Colleges is the local secondary school.

Good for: Cambridge commuter belt, good schools.
Local knowledge: the Cambridge Village Colleges were launched by Henry Morris, Cambridge chief education officer from 1922 to 1954 who believed schools could serve the needs of children and adults in their communities.
