With its world renowned beach top Castle, its challenging 18 hole golf course, its place on St. Oswald’s Way walk, and award winning butcher. This “estate” village provides a plethora of photo and leisure opportunities, from the castle itself, to its broad far reaching sandy beaches, the beautiful village cottages, houses, shops & restaurants to its fantastic Christmas lights in winter and local cricket matches on the village green in summer. The village even boasts a Croquet club.
