Boyton Place Phase 2B is a collection of new homes on the outskirts of the historic market town of Haverhill, offering a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes - something to suit everyone's needs.
Haverhill sits on the border with Essex and is also close to the border with Cambridgeshire. It lies about 14 miles southeast of Cambridge and 47 miles northeast of central London and is in a great central location for Bury St Edmunds, Braintree, and Bishop's Stortford too. There's still a weekly market in the High Street and a Friday market in the Market Square, along with all the usual facilities that you'd expect to see in a growing town. The industrial areas are to the south of the town, playing an important part in Haverhill's economy and giving this welcoming town a good balance. With lovely countryside to enjoy, living here is a good long-term choice.

The Arts Centre, housed within the Grade 2 listed town hall, has a cinema and theatre, presenting live music, drama, dance and comedy shows. The town also offers a variety of sports clubs and activities, including two non-league football teams, cricket, rugby, baseball, angling, a dance school and a skate park. The town also has a five-screen cinema, a leisure centre with a swimming pool, gym and children's soft play area and an 18-hole golf course.
There's a good choice of primary schools in Haverhill, including Burton End Community School, Clements Community School, Compals, New Cangle Community School, Place Farm Community School, Ridgewell School, St Felix RCVA School and Westfield Community School. Secondary schools include The Samuel Ward Academy which has an 'outstanding' Ofsted report, as does Linton Village College which is 5.7 miles away.
There's a great choice of restaurants in the town centre and surrounding areas, including the bigger chains such as Frankie & Benny's and Prezzo, as well as smaller independent bistros and tea rooms. For shopping, there are many well-known high street stores, independent retailers and supermarkets. The town centre is partially pedestrianised, and a market is held every Friday and Saturday in the Market Square.
