It's nice enough. I used to live there but moved away when I moved in with partner. Still have a house there which I rent out.
It's got a nice small town feel although the high street is a bit rubbish for shops and typically Tesco has taken over and affected the prosperity of the high street. I think the schools are okay although I've no experience of that. Afraid I'm not much help on the child front as I had my children after I moved away. There are a lot of nice properties there, it's commutable to Cambridge and London (one of my major reasons for living there) and it's pretty peaceful.
