About the neighbourhood
There are numerous excellent walks from the door of varying length, the popular Elham Valley Way, which is part of the North Downs Way, runs right by our property. We can always recommend a suitable walk.
The Mermaid, our village pub, serves excellent food. Lizzie, the chef, specialises in fish dishes and produces some fantastic meals.
We also have an excellent cafe, The Tadpole, which again has a very creative chef using seasonal ingredients. People travel a long way to have a breakfast here!
