Peace and Tranquility

As soon as you drive up to the property you know you are in for a treat. The property is on a mainly arable farm, but the owners do have loads of chickens. There are free eggs in the fridge on your arrival. We were shown to our property by the owner's daughter who was very friendly and even gave us directions to local supermarkets where we could get supplies. Fisherman's Lodge is well furnished and has lenty of space to relax in, with the grounds to the front and side open for exploring. The lovely mature trees provide suitable cover for the wildlife that comes to visit, Grey squirrels, Wood Pigeons, Moorhens etc. Fisherman's Lodge is brilliant as it is in an area with no street lights, so views of the stars are great, if you can keep your eyes open long enough after busy days sight seeing nearby. There are Geese that chap on the windows with their beaks looking for tasty bits of bread or they will take jenny long legs trapped in spider webs. Look out for the wonderfully friendly dogs on site. Pepper came to visit us every day, he is such a sweet dog, he never barked once and really made us wantto bring him home. My husband is a big toughy, but when we left he was seen to be wiping his eyes quite a bit. The area round about is excellent, Saffron is super, the market on Saturday is brilliant. The fruit and veg stand was out of this world, very reasonably priced for great produce. The Bread stand - well, just stand and drool before deciding on what you are having. Cambridge is only 10 miles or so away, so well worth a visit. Do take the Park and Ride, it is much easier than trying to get a parking spot in town. We visited the RAF Museum at Duxford during our visit and were not disappointed. Thanks for a great stay and we would have loved to have stayed longer and bring Pepper home with us.
