Quite a sizeable village (with a pub, but no shop that I could find), which centres on the road to Canons Ashby (NT and well worth a visit). Sulgrave is just to the south if you want a day full of culture. The road, for some reason, takes a peculiarly erratic route through the village which all adds to the charm of the place
