Welcome to Waterbeach Barracks

Waterbeach Barracks is evolving to create a new way of living. Set in a rich landscape of inherited woodland around a 23 acre lake, the development will provide high quality homes with all the convenience of modern living – from schools and health centre, through play parks and running loops, to shops and bars. Just three miles from the Cambridge Science Park, and with a direct cycle link along the historic Mere Way.

The vision

Waterbeach Barracks will create a place you can be proud to call home. Thoughtful design ensures a short walk or scoot to beautifully designed schools and bespoke play spaces; while cycle and bus links connect you to shops and bars nearby or in the City. New sustainable technologies support low carbon living while the green space connects you to the nature around you, whether growing your own in the allotments, scrumping in the community orchards or taking a leisurely stroll around the lake.

The first phase of the development is underway and will deliver the first homes, community and green space, just north of the lake. The Forest School will include outdoor learning spaces, and has been designed to make the most of the inherited landscape and features and will be car free, to ensure parents and children can enjoy the woodland glade routes as they walk and cycle safely together.
