Surrounded by gently undulating North Essex countryside, facilities include an award winning primary school, nearby Montessori school, public house and equestrian centre with livery yard. In addition the village offers many clubs and societies including a theatre group, a historical society, garden club and tennis club. For more extensive shopping facilities the market town of Saffron Walden is within 7 miles and the medieval town of Thaxted and Finchingfield within 3 miles. For the commuter the nearest station is Audley End, within 9 miles, which provides a fast regular service to London's Liverpool Street (56 minutes) and the University City of Cambridge is within 20 miles.
