There are beautiful woods close to the shop (park at the Village Hall and walk down the track). St Mary's, the 12th century church, is well worth a visit - take a look behind it at the really unusual churchyard memorial. There is a good children's playground by the Village Hall with a big picnic area (and adult exercise equipment) and The Living Rainforest is just outside Hampstead Norreys - a great day out for all ages.
And if you are in this area for a few days, where better to stay than at the beautiful Manor Farm Cottages . . . on our doorstep. Breakfast and lunch at the shop cafe, followed by dinner at the White Hart pub just down the road. Perfect!
