Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Our home is in a cul-de-sac. It sits in a secluded garden surrounded by trees. In the summer the field next door has cows grazing and they like to look over the dry stone wall at us on occasion. Our neighbours are of the older generation so it is fairly quiet. It is a 5 minute walk to the nearest large supermarket and 10 minute walk to a busy market town with all amenities.
