2 Selby Cottage was built in the 1600's as the village bakery. It is a really comfortable 3 bedroom cottage located along a quiet lane yet 2 minute walk from the 12C Church, 16C pub and an Indian Restaurant.
The cottage is the perfect base for exploring a 5 minute drive takes you to Duxford Imperial War Museum and Shepreth Wildlife Park. Yet central Cambridge, Grantchester, Wimpole Hall, Audley End house and Royston can all be reached within 20 minutes and London Kings cross can be reached in under an hour.
The village is steeped in history, from the ancient round moat, mentioned in the doomsday book as Fuglesmare, the 12C (in parts) St Mary's Church. The RSBP Nature reserve was a large lake, the ancient trackway Ickneild Path runs at the border of Fowlmere. There used to be a satellite airport here in both the first and second world wars and the Mustangs and Spitfires were based here. Today we just have a small private airport at Manor Farm with a war memorial. Samuel Pepys mentions the pub in his diary in the 1600's when he stayed in Fowlmere on his way to Cambridge.
The cottage has a stunning Inglenook fireplace in the lounge along with leather sofa, flat screen tv, dvd player and Now TV box. The large kitchen dining room is the hub of this house and is fully equipped with double oven, grill and hob, to coffee machine and dishwasher.
There is a wooden garden room where you can relax and enjoy the garden.
Upstairs the main bedroom has a 4 poster bed and walk in beamed wardrobe. There is a twin bedroom with plenty of storage and a smaller 3rd bedroom with 3" wide bunk beds. These are suitable for adults but, as there is reduced head room we do not recommend them for adults on long stays.
There is a modern white bathroom with shower over the bath.
Outside there is a pretty garden with a patio table and chairs and a trampoline. There is parking for one car in the driveway.
