Cherryhinton is more of a suburb although it is often referred to as a village. It does have it's own shops though & a couple of decent pubs. also has a good park which hosts the Cambridge Folk Festival every year(actually a world music festival rather than pure wooly-jumper type folk).Very close to the hospital & Hill's road too if that's of interest.Centre of Cambridge is a great place to live but rather spendy!.I've been in Cherryhinton for 23 years now so must like it!
Moving to Cambridge area.
Come out to Downham Market in Norfolk where I live. 30 minutes on the train, or 45 minute drive/ an hour during rush hour and 40% cheaper than Cambridge. I grew up in cambridge and I love it, but I love being out here, closer to the coast and Thetford.
Downham Market does have decent prices, but we'd lose a fair chunk of that on extra commuting costs I reckon. Wouldn't rule it out for somewhere to move to in time though.
Oi! Stop being rude about Ely... You're missing the best bit of it... It is CHEAP... honest to god my house here is £100k less than it would cost in Cambridge...
I've lived round here for 10 years since uni, and while I would love to live in town with all its commute-by-bike possibilities (which is the biggest thing I miss since moving out to Ely), if cost of living is an issue - think outside the city.
Agree with what has been said about Bar Hill tho - avoid like plague, otherwise, anywhere north is cheaper than anywhere south because of London commute, but you really will struggle to go wrong. Not many horrible places to live round here.
Having said that... Traffic on the A14 is Satan's idea of fun, so avoid that as your commute and you won't do too bad.
too much sky and not enough depth in the gene pool

Sounds the reasons to avoid.

Just move your ass to the centre
