Wife has landed a job in Cambridge (Hurrah!), so we're moving over end of January. Although we own a flat in Edinburgh, we're not going to be able to sell it anytime soon, so looking to rent in a place that's commutable to the centre, without blowing the budget.
We've been looking at places within the city, and Waterbeach, Ely, Shelford etc. - basically, places a short train ride away. Is it feasible to commute by bus from the other outlying areas (away from the trainlines)? We both drive, but don't want to commit to driving into Cambridge.
Not gripped by living in the city - we much prefer a bit of space, and aren't too bothered about nightlife. An ideal would be a small town or large village, (and no need to worry about schools.)
Any places to look out for? Good or bad.
Thanks for any advice anyone can offer.
