From fresh bread to local organic meats and cheeses, to seasonal vegetables down to the humble newspaper. They also have a collection of antiquities and bric a brac so make sure you have plenty of time to browse.

The village is perfect for walking and cycling, not only is the village on the Peddars Way route leading to the beautiful coast at Holme, and along the National Cycling Route, it also has wonderful Ringstead Downs: one of the largest chalk grasslands in the country, many interesting plants, wildlife and birds can be seen. Spectacular walks for all the family including your four-legged friend too!
