There is a very good local Butchers in the village called Arnold and Son and they also stock fresh fruit and veg and all essentials. There is a post office/shop and a chip shop.
There are many good cycle routes around Long Bennington and the scenery and wildlife is stunning. A short ride from Long Bennington is Dry Doddington which also has a pub/restaurant called The Wheatsheaf and provides excellent eating.
Long Bennington is an ideal place to start and finish a walk, stopping in one of the three village pubs for refreshments after. There is also a monthly car boot sale on the village football ground which starts on 3rd May and is then on once a month.
We hope you enjoy your visit as much as we did the first time we came, so much we moved here.
