The village backdrop is that of smaller hills, and brief woodland ridges, with oak and ash commonplace – interspersed by a collaged, arable landscape, of frequent colour.

Nearby lies Shobrooke Park, a spacious country estate, open to the public, with many wizened and ancient trees standing tall. Furthermore it claims a large fishing lake, and a grassy amphitheatre – for live music on summer nights.
