Wroot is an attractive village set slightly above the surrounding low-lying landscape.  To the North is Hatfield Moors and to the East rises the Isle of Axholme.  Farming is central to the village, which benefits from a Post Office/General Store and pub within easy walking distance of the cottage.  On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings the pub serves delicious, home cooked meals using quality local produce.  There are also numerous other pubs, restaurants and take-aways slightly further afield.

There is a nature reserve a short walk from Wroot High Street, and a short car journey away is Potteric Carr Nature Reserve owned by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, covering 500 acres with habitats ranging from open water and marsh to woodland.

Fishermen can enjoy numerous fishing lakes and rivers locally, and golfers have a choice of courses within the region.

Epworth, famous as the birthplace of John Wesley, founder of the Methodist Church, is 6 miles away and has an interesting selection of shops and cafés, and slightly further afield is Gainsborough with its Old Hall dating from Tudor times.

Doncaster is just 12 miles away, and is known for its horse racing, but also has museums, a historic market and various leisure and retail facilities including The Dome leisure complex and Lakeside Village outlet shopping.
