3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Fowlmere, Cambridgeshire, England
We have 2 self catering cottages adjacent to each other. This is the larger 3 bedroom cottage. Ideal for short term stays and international travellers wanting to stay in a quaint country cottage in a quintessentially English village.

The cottage is listed as a historic building an thought to be the original village Bake House when it was built in the 1600's which would explain the beautiful imposing Inglenook fireplace in the lounge.

The cottage is extremely well equipped as a home away from home with everything from free WIFI to food mixer, fluffy, towels, high quality bedding and dressing gowns are just a few of the extra touches provided to ensure you are comfortable.

Downstairs there is an L shaped leather sofa in the lounge. Large flat screen TV, DVD player and Now TV box. Selection of DVD's. The fireplace has a wood burne...

Interaction with guests
We live 5 minutes away to the south of the village so, we are there to help if you have any questions but, not invade your privacy. We can meet you in person or, we have a Lock Key Safe so, you can arrive at your leisure. Check in is usually after 4pm and check out is before 11am but, we do our best to be flexible dependent upon the cleaning schedule for other bookings. There is a comprehensive Visitors Guide covering most things about the cottage and the surrounding area. When you arrive there is always a Welcome Pack so, you can relax and not worry about heading straight to the supermarket.

About the neighbourhood
Fowlmere is the ideal base for a holiday in the area as we are so close to the main commuting roads.

Fowlmere itself is a pretty South Cambridgeshire village with about 1200 occupants. The 12C (in parts) St Mary's Church dominates the main High Street. There is an excellent large 5* village pub called The Chequers and a fantastic Indian Restaurant both are under 200 metres from the cottages. Behind the Church is an ancient landmark called the Roound Moat thought to be the site of a castle in medieval times. Adjacent to the moat and away from the High Street is the pretty Village Green. There is also a Beautician, Hairdressers, Village Hall with Farmers Market. There are lots of wonderful walks in the area but, the one to Fowlmere RSPB.
