At the heart of this historic village lies the handsome Square - one of the largest in the country covering almost two acres and always alive with residents and visitors.
The nearby naturally formed water meadows form a tranquil oasis in the middle of the village, offering a peaceful place to walk, picnic or simply spend some time by the water's edge.
One of the village's most impressive buildings is St Nicholas Church which dates back to 1120 and sits perched on a very large sacred mound.
If you've an eye for a bargain or simply like to browse, make sure you allow time to visit Chesapeake Mill which is filled to the brim with exclusive collections of antiques, home furnishings, art and jewellery. Why not stop for a drink in the tea room and soak up the surroundings of this extraordinary Grade II listed mill which was built in 1820 incorporating timber from the US Frigate Chesapeake, captured by the British HMS Shannon in 1813.
