Interaction with guests
We live half a mile from the cottage and where ever possible I like to meet Guests and answer any of your questions to ensure you have the best stay. We do have a Key Safe so if you are stuck in traffic you don't need to stress about your arrival time. If I am away travelling/ it is inconvenient to meet for whatever reason. I will be in touch by email and will give you the name of someone local to contact in case of an emergency....getting locked out springs to mind:) You will be sent an information booklet about the property in advance with WIFI codes etc. and there is a comprehensive brochure at the cottage.

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.
