The plot occupies a very pleasant position in the heart of Upwell. The village, which has the River Nene (Old Course) running through it, has a most relaxed atmosphere where narrow boats can be frequently seen passing through while locals fish the river banks. The village is a popular choice for local people and newcomers to the area, partly due to the villages easy access to the larger towns of Downham Market and Wisbech as well as being within easy reach of two railway stations.
