This charming village includes the popular Wheatsheaf Inn public house, a Post Office, church and Thai Village restaurant. Eastbourne town centre is about 2.5 miles distant and provides a mainline train station with services to London Victoria, Brighton and Ashford International, together with an excellent range of shopping, recreational and entertainment facilities.

Eastbourne's Victorian seafront promenade with theatre complex and International Lawn Tennis Centre at Devonshire Park are close by.
Eastbourne offers three 18 hole golf courses and one of the largest marinas in Europe. The historic county town of Lewes is about 13 miles to the north west and the vibrant city of Brighton and Hove is about 21 miles to the west.
