Relocating to Cambridge for work: A guide to accommodation

Cambridge university

You’re relocating to Cambridge for work. The city of technology, innovation and discovery awaits. Cambridge is a small city once you get to know it, but with the sheer amount of information online, it can be overwhelming.

At Citystay, we meet corporate relocators often, and we thought we’d put together a guide to our serviced apartment accommodation. We’ve hand selected our best properties for business relocators to immerse you in Cambridge’s history and culture – keep scrolling to get started.

Why use serviced apartments before committing to renting?

Often people jump straight into the rental market. Committing to live in one area for 6 to 12 months is a big decision. If you don’t know the area, what you like and dislike about Cambridge, or how your commute to the office will be, renting straight away can end badly.

Using serviced apartments for the first few months allows you to become familiar with the city of Cambridge, the areas you like or could stay away from. It gives you flexibility and the power to make an informed decision of where you’ll live in the longer term.

You’ll also have the support of a reservations team. At Citystay, we’re always keen to give recommendations of great restaurants or weekend activities – we’ve been doing it since 2008, so we know Cambridge pretty well.

Loris Court

One bedroom| CB1 | Parking.

Flooded with natural light, Loris Court is the epitome of home. The one bedroom apartments are based in Cherry Hinton, just three miles from Cambridge’s city centre. Cherry Hinton is surrounded by greenery, and has a village feel despite being so close to the city; the community spirit is felt throughout the area, and the Cherry Hinton Village Leisure Centre holds a range of amenities and fitness classes.

Cambridge Station is a 20 minutes bicycle ride, making Loris Court a great option for commuters – especially those wanting to have some separation from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. If you’re working on the Science or Business Park, it’s only a 15 minute drive away, depending on traffic.

A bit more about the apartment itself. As with any Citystay apartment, it’s fully furnished and equipped, with weekly housekeeping. Loris Court has been considerately designed; the homely feel is reflected throughout the apartment.

Serviced Apartments Loris Court CambridgeStarting in the kitchen, you’ll find an open plan layout, benefitting from a breakfast bar, and of course a dishwasher, washer/dryer and everything you’ll need to cook a great meal. The living area has a widescreen TV and two-seater sofa, so plenty of room for guests to come over. The most comfortable part of the apartment – the bedroom. It’s kitted out with luxury Egyptian cotton linen, and some toiletries to get you started.

If you’re a real home body, but enjoy a bit of greenery, you’ll have access to the communal landscaped garden. And with every Cambridge apartment, a bike store must follow – Loris Court follows suit.

Franklin Court

One bedroom deluxe apartment | Parking

The north of Cambridge has seen a lot of investment in the last few years. Home to the Cambridge Science and Business Park, we see a lot of relocators looking for serviced apartments nearby. Franklin Court is the answer. It’s modern, bright, and designed for business travellers and relocators.

And a splash of history for you, it’s named after Rosalind Franklin, whose work was central to understanding the molecular structure of DNA.

Franklin Court CitystayThe minimalist, neutral design makes Franklin Court a haven after a busy day. Kitchen counter space can be hard to find in a one bedroom apartment, but not here. There’s plenty of space to utilise, and the open plan concept makes for simpler, modern living. But our favourite part is the complimentary Netflix and the underfloor heating.

Take a closer look at Franklin Court’s location, and start planning your commute.
