The village has a popular 17th century white
cottage inn The Hunny Bell located on a slight rise on the village green
just behind the conker tree. Up until the 1970s when the first bar was
installed, beer used to be served straight from the cellar. Food is an
important ingredient of any pub but the emphasis is on traditional fayre
at The Hunny Bell rather than the gastro route.
Along the road is the Stody Estate, with their extensive gardens, that they open once a year each May to the public. Ten acres of rhododendrons and azalea bushes along with a rose and water garden.
Melton Constable and Briston are further along the road and have a good range of local shops, stores / post office fish and chip, bakers and butchers. Or in the other direction is the larger town of Holt with its main street lined by Georgian buildings and its abundance of interesting antique emporiums and knick-knack shops hidden down streets and twisting alleyways. On its outskirts is a large park.
One of the past rectors at nearby Edgefield was the Cannon Walter Herbert Macron he was rector at the church of St. Peter and St. Paul in Edgefield from 1875 to 1937. He also took the unusual step of having his church moved from its original location to the one you see today.
