We have now lived here almost 20 years and have been very happy in this lovely village.

The slide shows will give you a general idea of the look of the the village and the area around us.

You will also see some of our hobbies and pastimes.

We have 2 children, Chris who lives in the Home Counties, and Terena, who is married to Andrew and their Children, Rosie and Thomas, who live in Somerset.

If you wish to contact us send us an email
