I put my vote in for the Shire - Buckland to be specific. Think of it, its
close to a major waterway, the Brandywine, or the Baranduin if you are the
historical type. With this access, you could easily access all the pipeweed
from South Farthing you could want. Its a short ferry ride across to the
fertile breadbasket of the Marish. Its a short horse and carriage ride to
that holiday destination of Bree and it is near a major trade route passing
directly through the shire. Also, for the adventurous type, you can slip
into the Old Forest for a nice quiet hike down to the Withywindle.
Perfect for the retiring type but with still plenty of opportunity for young
Gary, aka, Bungo Burrows
