Blog from the Dogs – Co-housing in Cambridge

tedicon “Smudge, I’ve just been talking to Steph about the new co-housing development in Cambridge.”

smudgeicon “Oh yes, Marmalade Lane, does it taste delicious?”

tedicon “No Smudge, it’s not made out of marmalade, it’s a place where lots of people live together and have communal spaces to socialise!”

smudgeicon  “I lived like that once, over in Battersea if I recall.”

tedicon “Don’t be stupid Smudge, it’s not like the Battersea Dogs Home!”

smudgeicon “In all honesty I quite enjoyed myself there, I had loads of friends to play with.”

tedicon  “Well that bit is similar, I hear at Marmalade Lane everyone has so much fun and socialises together in the huge garden and the common rooms.”

smudgeicon  “Maybe we can get Maxine & Mattie to build loads of kennels and we can invite all our friends to come and live with us, let’s go and ask them!”

A Little About Marmalade Lane Orchard Park, Cambridge, CB4 2WL

Home doesn’t start at your front door. Home is the street where your children play, where you meet and catch up with neighbours and the spaces you share.

Home is being part of a community.

Located in the Orchard Park area of Cambridge, Marmalade Lane is a cohousing community that promotes neighbourly living and helps conserve the environment.

Each energy-efficient, beautifully-made home benefits from shared facilities that bring people together to participate in community life with sustainable values.

Relax in your own garden, while your children play safely in the large communal garden. Eat with your family at home, or get together to cook dinner with neighbours in the Common House. There are even additional spare bedrooms you can reserve when you have guests staying the night. Cohousing gives you the freedom to live a more sociable way of life.

Marmalade Lane is an award-winning development of 42 custom-designed houses and apartments, located within cycling distance of the centre of one of the most famous cities in the world. Designed through a unique process that involved future residents from the outset, all homes use Trivselhus Climate Shield® technology and the highest standards of construction to create a community that’s built for life.
