A local shop, primary school and pub are found in the village and there is fast access to the A435 and the A46. Regional shopping can be found in Cheltenham and Tewkesbury and there are high speed trains from Cheltenham & Gloucester.
Thought to have been originally constructed around 1650, Willowbank Cottage has quintessential period features including half-timber construction, wattle and daub construction, thatched roofing, and exposed Cotswold stonework.

Mature and attractive gardens surround the house and there is a useful parking area with double garage situated across Granna Lane.
