This one-bedroom holiday home is ideally placed in the middle of a strawberry farm within the picture-perfect village of West Peckham, with it's Saxon church, village green and pub, The Swan On The Green serving delicious, freshly-prepared food, excellent wines and real ale from it's own micro-brewery.
