They pretty village of Fowlmere is steeped in history. Tucked away behind the 12C (in parts) St Marys Church and the village green is the Round Moat, thought to be the site of a Castle in medieval times. Today it is mostly overgrown woodland but, also a local treasure. Fowlmere airfield was instrumental during both the first and second world wars and the place where the RAF and USAAF were based and flew their Mustangs and Spitfires. There is a lovely village walk that encompasses the Moat, airfield war memorial, Fowlmere RSPB and loops back to the cottage.
After sight seeing you may fancy a pamper and there is a wonderful Beautician and Hairdressers in the village for the ladies.
