We are a small and beautiful site situated at the southern end of the village. Within easy access of Duxford Imperial War Museum.Facilities:
imperial War Museum - Duxford
A former Battle of Britain fighter station, the museum is now home to the largest collection of military and civil aircraft in Europe. Duxford retains its wartime atmosphere and, as many of its aeroplanes still fly, you might even see one take to the air during a visit. Over 400,000 visitors come to Duxford annually and see biplanes, Spitfires, Concorde and Gulf War jets among the 180 historic aircraft on show.
The American Air Museum is an outstanding example of contemporary British architecture, housing Duxford's unique collection of historic American combat aircraft including the B-17 Flying Fortress and the enormous B-52 bomber, with many suspended from the ceiling as if in flight.
Visit: Fowlmere Nature Reserve
A short drive or a pleasant walk past Manor Farm will take you to the Reserve. There the reed-beds and pools are fed by natural chalk springs with a stream running through the Reserve. Special birds include kingfishers and water rails, breeding sedge, reed and grasshopper warblers and a roost of corn buntings.

Great little find, quiet, conservative and well located for Cambridge and its surrounds. We used it for a Duxford airshow and you couldn't find better for closeness. Nice aspect with trees and high hedges affording privacy. Quiet road just out of the village but within walking distance of the
pub(s) and restaraunts. Drawback - well the toilets need some updating to be truthful.
