There are many trails for walking and a river beach just 15 minutes from the house, here you will find picnic and bbq area and fresh, clean running river water ... just what you need on a hot sunny day!! There is a friendly local shop just 5 minutes drive from the house with a cafe right next door.
We have a delivery of fresh fish to the centre of the village twice weekly and bread delivery daily.
