Within a stones throw away the beautiful historic Saxon Church is 5 minutes walk and the stunning views of Escomb Lake are not to be missed. Take long relaxing walks in the splendour of the local area and the hidden beauties of Escomb. 
When you are finished why not have a well earned drink and a bite to eat at the Saxon Inn pub.
