Just that really. Looking at possibly moving there with a toddler and teenage sons. Good and bad points?

Not bourne but about 20 mins drive away

It's quiet, and not much really to do there. But maybe that's what your looking for

It has a lovely indoor pool and an outdoor pool in the summer and bourne woods is a lovely place to walk around

Easy access to Peterborough for decent shopping. Grammar school and we'll regarded comprehensive. Lots of families but not as exclusive (naice) as Stamford.

Not much going on in Bourne shopping wise other than supermarkets and estate agents but the schools (both Primary and secondary) are very good and as PP have said, its close to Peterborough and Stamford which have more stuff going on.

I grew up in Bourne and resented there being nothing to do (it was a 35 minute bus journey to the nearest McDonald's before one opened in Bourne a few years back!) but having grown up and moved away I can now appreciate that it is a good place to raise a family and I'll probably move back to the area when I have kids.
