Marvel at the Wimpole Estate with its splendid architecture and historical background. Being a National Trust property, the expansive grounds and lovely rooms of the Wimpole Estate are well taken cared of spanning for 3,000 acres. One of its highlights is a walled garden blooming with flowers would surely take up a whole day of experience. The Wimpole Home Farm is an 18th-century model farm park, a great and recommended place to take your kids for the day. A café is available onsite, thus you can recharge and refresh during the tour of the place.

Fancy attending festivities during your stay? The Childerley Orchard is the place for gathering people for festivals and concerts. It can even turn into a camping ground during events! Be sure to bring your gears and tent to get a full experience outdoors and even gaze at the night sky.

Cambourne is also the head-quarters of the Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire, which is a local wildlife conservation charity that manages nature reserves and woodlands in the area.

During springtime, you can enjoy punting along the River Cam and sight see swans, ducks, flowers and trees along the bank. Reserve a day to spot blooming bluebells and other spectacular wildflowers at the Waresley and Gransden Woods, particularly in May. This woodland is composed of hazel, ash, field maple and a variety of flora such as primroses, oxlips, violets. It also serves as a habitat for breeding birds and butterflies. While pathways are provided as access around the place, don’t forget to bring your wellies during a rainy season for a more convenient walk.

Thinking of starting the day with an activity? You can jog and walk around the lake and green spaces of Cambourne Nature Reserve, wherein wildlife takes shelter including badgers, deers and great crested newts in the ponds. Head over to watch this video of an aerial view of the reserve.
