College Park is set in the pretty village of Thurston where you can benefit from the best of both worlds, as you can enjoy the peaceful country walks from the village yet be close to the energetic town of Bury St Edmunds. Offering a mix of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes – there's something to suit everyone.
Thurston is a few miles to the east of Bury St Edmunds, with easy access to both the A14 which links Cambridge with Ipswich, and the A143 which heads to Diss and Great Yarmouth. Bury St Edmunds is where these two main routes meet, and it's always been an important focal point for the area. The town successfully balances history with modern day facilities and the villages around it have become popular places to live. The countryside here is lovely too, with ancient villages such as Lavenham and Long Melford to visit on days out.
College Park has everything you'll need nearby, with a local Co-op, a Londis store, The Fox & Hounds pub, a pharmacy, a library and a train station. For more choice, Bury St Edmunds is just 7.2 miles from College Park, with a good number of well-known high street stores. The Arc Shopping centre is just 6.7 miles from the development and offers a range of popular shops. There are many local activities, events and places to visit nearby, including Abbey Gardens and Nowton Park, which are both under 6 miles from College Park. Bury St Edmunds also offers family fun at Bury Bowl, Planet Laser, the Skyliner Sports Centre and the CurveMotion indoor play park.
Local schools include Thurston Community College and Thurston Primary School. Both offer brilliant after school clubs and activities for all ages and are less than 1 mile from College Park. Further afield there's Bury St Edmunds High School, Westley Middle School and Saint Edmunds Roman Catholic V.A. Primary School.
