We’re been here almost two weeks and we haven’t ventured far apart from a couple of brief shopping trips to nearby towns. I like our new village, it feels so quintessentially English. There is a church, pub, village hall, post office, general store, petrol station and a garden centre. The lanes are quiet and a pleasure to walk. There are no house numbers, just names. Most are traditional like Orchard Cottage, Chimney Pots, Appledore, Clematis House etc.. One or two make me smile, like Cobweb Cottage and Albert’s Old Place. Our property seems to have been named after a Scottish town and is unpronounceable.
