The village has a public house, The Blowing Stone Inn and a very pretty church, while Uffington, a slightly larger village about 1.5 miles to the west, has another pub, a large church known as The Cathedral of The Vale, a thriving village shop, a good primary school, sports club with tennis, football and cricket facilities and a wonderful village hall which hosts many plays, village parties, teas, lunches, meetings and varied entertainments.

After about 2.4 miles proceed straight over at the Childrey Holloway crossroads and continue on for a further 2.3 miles before turning left at the crossroads, sign posted to Lambourn. No.2 Blowing Stone Cottage is then the second cottage on your left hand side.
