  • It would be useful, as a first time visitor myself, if you could give information on where shops are to buy such things as sandwiches and newspapers

    Sadly we no longer have any shops in the village. You can get food at the Inn With The Well and Parklands Hotel. Otherwise it is c.4 miles in any direction, to shops in Aldbourne, Chilsedon or Marlborough.

  • Is there anywhere you can pitch a tent near the village, ideally with access to a tap? Am cycling the Ridgeway from Bristol at end of month, and the village looks like an ideal overnight stay location?
