Cambridgeshire Reports

Melbourn, Cambridgeshire

Review of Melbourn by sharon on November 19th, 2007
Melbourn is a large village with pretty thatched cottages in Southern Cambridgeshire. Once the site of a Saxon settlement and a Roman Camp. The Norman church of All Saints is positioned in the heart of the Village, boasting eight bells whose melodic sound echoes regularly. The surrounding area is peppered with interesting places to visit such as Shepreth Wildlife Park, where you can enjoy the wonders of Mother Nature, home to Tigers , Monkeys, Otters and Owls. There is even a chance to feed the Ponies, pet a Rabbit or kiss a wolf! Or perhaps the gentler side of nature will tempt, Fowlmere with itís impressive Reedbeds, natural springs and stream is home to Turtle Doves, Swans and Kingfishers. A visit to Royston Cave is an interesting interlude where the stunning wall carvings are thought to date back to Medieval times. Or why not have a go on skis or snowboards at Bassingbourne Snow Sports Centre, where the slopes are floodlit, and the chance to have professional lessons are always a possibility. Perhaps the grace and beauty of Wimpole Hall is more for you, the majestic 18th Century House sits in a wooded park gives a true insight into life above and below stairs.
