    “We were so lucky with the weather, something out of everyone's control.”

    The bungalow was lovely, spacious, welcoming, and with lots of little touches like the "library" with local info and local interest. I can devour books on walks so these were especially useful. We twice scaled Shiton Hill and waked several of the footpaths around. The dog loved the garden, ideal for a lurcher to do circuits, fully fenced and with neighbours who also had dogs so such a dog friendly environment. The shower in the bathroom worked well and so useful to have a separate toilet.Dog ...

    The bungalow was lovely, spacious, welcoming, and with lots of little touches like the "library" with local info and local interest. I can devour books on walks so these were especially useful. We twice scaled Shiton Hill and waked several of the footpaths around. The dog loved the garden, ideal for a lurcher to do circuits, fully fenced and with neighbours who also had dogs so such a dog friendly environment. The shower in the bathroom worked well and so useful to have a separate toilet.Dog also loved the morning sun shining through the windows. The heating system was a bit of a mystery, hopefully those who came after are more adept with the technology. The information regarding recycling needs updating, all local authorities seem to have their own schemes. All in all a lovely week.

It has an early 15th century church tower, a 13th century font and the exterior is floodlit for much of the year making it an important feature of the village both day and night.
