And with several walking trails, it’s also somewhere to enjoy the open air while getting some gentle exercise.
Approximately 20 minutes from Sawtry is the popular and cosmopolitan city of Peterborough.

It is also an environmentally-focused city, and you’ll find an abundance of countryside walks, lakes and nature reserves to enjoy. If you want to experience all that the city centre has to offer, the Queensgate Shopping Centre has more than 90 shops and 15 eateries, so it’s ideal to shop for essentials or just things that you want.

For another city experience, Cambridge offers visitors a whole host of things to see and do. Located just 26 miles away, this world-famous city is packed full of history, whether it’s the numerous University buildings you want to see, or the many museums you want to explore.

Outdoor space can be easily found too, with plenty of gardens and parks to relax in. And if you want something a little more energising and fun, you can always try your hand at punting on the river.
Even though Sawtry is a small village, it benefits from having Ofsted-rated schools for all ages close to the new houses for sale in Sawtry. For very young children, The Woodland Rose Day Nursery with forestry learning (not yet rated by Ofsted) caters for babies and children aged 3 months to 5 years, and is a mile away by car. The school has an ‘outdoor education delivery model’ that allows children to experience learning in a woodland setting.
Closer to home, Sawtry Infant School (rated ‘Good’) and Sawtry Junior Academy are both less than 10 minutes from home on foot. Older students are just half a mile walk from the ‘Good’ Sawtry Village Academy.
Other schools can be found in nearby villages, including Holme (around 4 miles away) and Alconbury (approx. 6 miles).
Sawtry is located just 11 minutes’ drive from the A1(M), allowing for simple commutes to the surrounding areas of Huntingdon (6 miles), Peterborough (14 miles) and Stamford (19 miles). For longer journeys, the A1(M) / A1 provides routes to destinations including Hatfield and central London in the south, and Newark-on-Trent, Pontefract and the outskirts of Edinburgh in the north. The A14 is just a few miles away (for Cambridge and Kettering), as well as connecting to the M11, meaning Essex and central London can be reached quickly.
For train travel, Huntingdon station is around 10 miles from Bowlands Place, and provides regular services to Peterborough (16 minutes) and Horsham (2 hours 27 minutes). For journeys into London, Peterborough station provides direct services to Kings Cross in just 50 minutes.
