Where is it?


St Ives is a small market town on the banks of the Great River Ouse very close to the University City of Cambridge and only 1 hr and 20 minutes by car from London. St Ives has an original medieval bridge (150 metres from our house ) and was the home of Oliver Cromwell whose army defeated Charles I in the English Civil War 1642-1646.

There is also very good public transport from St Ives to Cambridge by bus and to London by train from nearby Huntingdon.
