Situated just five miles south of Cambridge and on the banks of the River Cam, Mill View offers an ideal combination of independence, assurance and comfort within a supportive environment. There is an on-site hair salon, village shop and rooftop restaurant, as well as plenty of activities to keep you active and entertained, including arts and crafts and fitness classes.  

The residential home offers stunning views of communal, landscaped gardens and the surrounding countryside. And if we’re lucky enough to enjoy a white Christmas this year, perhaps you can enjoy the gardens blanketed in snow!
