Our Neighborhood

We are really beginning to love our neighborhood! 

The road that leads to our flat complex is extremely quiet so we almost feel like we live in the country.  Our flat overlooks the golf course and with that comes tons of wildlife.  Just the other day we saw a red fox out our window! 

Our building is surrounded by all types of flowers and trees.  It was built in the 1970's which is considered brand new in England!

Our super fun Royal Mailbox...makes you feel really important when you send a letter.  Notice the "ER II" which symbolizes the monarch under which it was installed (Queen Elizabeth II).    

The main road is where you find all the local shops that represent the diverse character of our neighborhood.  Here are a few of our favorites!
