My place is close to Farnborough Airshow in a village setting with its central green and 4 pubs; 3 serving food, including a gastro-pub which often has live music. There are 2 cafes and pizza, Indian, Chinese and fish-and-chip takeaways. The local "open-all-hours" mini-mart is less than a quarter of a mile away.
My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with kids).
Trains to London Waterloo take 37 minutes and Gatwick Airport is an hour.
