Local Area Information

 Woodbine Cottage is where Donald Healey the creator of the Austin Healey car was born in 1898 and grew up to become one of the most respected names in the UK car industry.

Opposite the Cottage there is a beautifully maintained Boating Lake and Gardens with plenty of ducks to keep you entertained and with many benches to sit and relax and enjoy the gorgeous flower beds. In the Summer, small rowing boats and Pitch and Putt are available and there is also a bowling green where you can play for a small fee. 

Just 3 minutes up the road from the Cottage, the Children can enjoy the play park with a football pitch and basketball court. Alongside the Park is the tennis club so bring your own rackets and book the Court for a game.
