Cottenham is a large and popular village situated about 6 miles north of Cambridge with a good road connection providing easy access to the A.14, M.11, Cambridge Science and Business Parks etc. The village is served with a good range of local facilities including a post office, butchers, bakers and also doctor and dental surgeries.

Franklin gardens is a cul-de-sac situated off Lyles Road which, in turn, links the High Street with Harlestones Road. There is a short footpath that leads from the end of the cul-de-sac to the High Street.

This end terrace retirement bungalow is one of a group in a sheltered scheme built in the 1980s for South Cambridgeshire District Council with occupation restricted to persons over 60 years of age. It is being sold on a shared ownership basis to provide an opportunity for retired people to buy their own home at an affordable price level. The Council retains a 25% share but no rent is charged for this. The bungalow is of traditional brick cavity construction and has uPVC double glazing and gas central heating.

Within the scheme there is a small community centre for use by the residents.
