Church Street leads out on to Otmoor over which country walks can be enjoyed. Otmoor itself is an area of inland marsh, a substantial part of which is now an RSPB wetlands nature reserve. In the village there is an excellent Primary School together with the Abingdon Arms Public House/Restaurant and super fast fibre optic broadband has recently been installed. The village has a good local community, with an attractive Medieval Church, a well regarded Public House and a good sports field with tennis court and village hall.
The established rear garden occupies an elevated position and borders the property on two sides. It is mainly laid to lawn with vegetable beds, two sheds, a greenhouse and outbuilding for storage and is enclosed with flower and shrub borders. There is also the benefit of a detached garage.
