Dalwood is a small village with a church, a primary school, village hall and public house.

St Peter's church is 15th century and was restored in 1881. It has some early stained glass windows. Immediately to the right of the main door (and partly visible in photograph) is the grave of Pedro de Alcantara Travassos Valdez, a son of the Portuguese soldier and Prime Minister José Lucio Travassos Valdez, 1st Count of Bonfim.[1]

Nearby Loughwood Meeting House just north of the A35 road is an 18th-century Baptist chapel with an unaltered interior. Some landscaped gardens are opened to the public at nearby Burrow Farm.[2]

Home to the 800 year old thatched English Inn with original inglenook fireplace and flagstone floors, the tuckers arms are now esteemed for great food and hospitality
