The village facilities include: Gp surgery/health centre, general store, butcher, gift shop, several pubs, a restaurant, livery-yard with tea room, village hall, churches, renowned independent school, a primary school and pre-school nursery. Nearby is Blithfield Reservoir – a popular location for walking, ornithology, fishing and sailing. Other sporting activities include tennis courts, cricket and football pitches. A variety of organisations and societies are active in the village.

Just two miles away is the charming hamlet of Hoar Cross, with its stunning scenery, great walking and ancient forests – now part of the National Forest. Hoar Cross boasts the only Spa Hotel in a Stately Home – and offers gym membership with use of all the spa facilities, as well as day-guest spa packages.

Although in a rural location, the property is well-placed for access to the A38, A50 and the national motorway network. From Lichfield Railway Station it is possible to get to London in about 90 minutes. Birmingham International Airport and National Exhibition Centre – 36 miles.
