Cottenham, Cambridgeshire, is a large village around 5 miles from the county town of Cambridge. Like many towns and villages in the area, Cottenham has a rich history, with evidence of a Roman settlement and a listing in the Domesday Book of 1086. The village has a diverse mix of architecture, owing to a great fire that destroyed half the buildings in the late 17th century.
Cottenham is large in terms of villages, with plenty of amenities, shops and numerous small businesses. It is well connected by road, with a trip to Cambridge just 20 minutes or so away, making Cottenham ideal for commuters and small businesses.
