Fenstanton is a small village in Cambridgeshire that still retains a few buildings from the elegant Georgian period. A visit to the Medieval church of St Peter and St Paul is an interesting diversion, look carefully for the memorial to Capability Brown who is buried in the church yard. Just three miles away is the magical Houghton Mill, set on the River Ouse, this delightful Water Mill whisks you back in time, where milling still continues today….. With the enchanting City Of Cambridge just a few miles away, which beckons her visitor to share in the wonders on offer, such as the university Botanical Gardens, a stunning tranquil location and covers 40 acres, with over 10 thousand plants to enjoy, a Lake, and even a woodland walk to explor,e and set less than a mile from the city centre. Or how about Wimpole Hall, built in the 18th Century complete with many treasures inside including a fascinating insight to life ‘below stairs’, or see the Farm set amongst thatched buildings and home to Shire Horses, Sheep, Pigs, complete with Dairy, Playground and so much more. Or there is always Hemingford Grey Manor built in 1130 and echoes the past faithfully.
