There's a convenience shop and beauty salon just over the road, the local Co-Op a five minute walk, and there are two pubs within a short walk, The Albion and The Anchor - The Anchor serves food in their riverfront restaurant.

Or take a walk along the Roman River valley to Fingringhoe, visit the nature reserve and enjoy lunch at The Whalebone. A footpath/cycle path alongside the river will also take you into Colchester where you can take advantage of the town's large cycle path network. A foot ferry operates between Rowhedge and Wivenhoe, usually between April and September, giving you access to other pubs and restaurants and an opportunity to explore another pretty village.
