About the area - Metropolitan at Brampton Park

About the area

Brampton Park provides a modern rural lifestyle in the relaxed surroundings of England's most diverse countryside. Dating back to the Domesday Book, the historic village of Brampton blends a comforting village environment with excellent transport connections and local amenities. With 10 local schools and convenient access to major towns and cities, this mix of 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes offer an idyllic family retreat in a secluded and tranquil setting.

Within easy reach of your home are a number of local nature reserves and wildlife sites, perfect for relaxing and those funfilled family days out. Thought to be more than 900 years old, Brampton Woodland is Cambridgeshire's second largest, while nearby Portholme Meadow is believed to be England's largest flood-plain meadow.

Offering room to breathe, while remaining well connected with the rest of the country.


Keen golfers can test themselves on England's hardest par 3 at Brampton Park Golf Club, a traditional 18 hole course located just a few fairways from your front door. If you're looking to tone up or slim down, a range of sports and exercise options can also be found within the village, including the Fit4Purpose workout studio and the Memorial Playing Fields.

For more leisurely pursuits, the surrounding countryside and River Ouse provide the ideal opportunity for weekend walks and safe cycling in fresh air and wide open green space.

Few villages can lay claim to a racecourse within their parish, but Brampton's Huntingdon Racecourse runs a programme of 18 annual fixtures and has previously been voted ‘Best Small Racecourse'. The course offers affordable entry and great entertainment for the whole family.


Huntingdon is steeped in history, with the famous English military leader Oliver Cromwell having been born in the town. Today, a museum stands in his name, detailing the life and legacy of one of the country's most controversial political figures. There's also plenty to discover at the 13th century Tudor Hinchingbrooke House, where many historic monarchs have visited and lived.

Less than two miles away is the historical market town of Huntingdon, which provides more familiar high street amenities such as banks, nationwide stores, cinema, eateries and supermarkets.


Brampton Park is just a five minute drive to Huntingdon Railway Station, which serves the Great Northern route to both London and Peterborough. Trains take you into London Kings Cross in just over an hour, and to nearby Peterborough, Hitchin and Hatfield in even less. So whether you’re commuting to work or even planning a weekend getaway to the countryside, you’re always ideally connected. The village has direct access to both the A1 and A14, providing short journey times to local towns and villages as well as leisurely drives to larger towns and cities to the North. The M11 is also within easy reach, allowing straight forward journeys to the South, including Cambridge, Bishop’s Stortford and London. For those travelling further afield, both London Luton and London Stansted airports are located around an hour’s drive away, opening the door to over 100 destinations.
