We actively encourage people to use public transport and car sharing where they can. The village is very small so please park carefully and considerately if you do bring your vehicle. Visitors and tourists are welcomed in the village but blocked access to farms, tracks and turning areas would damage relationships and potentially lead to a ban on outdoor activities.
