If you want a quiet, remote, pretty little English village, try Caverswall. Its centre consists of this large tree, which acts (in fact) as the middle of a de-facto roundabout for vehicles.
Is it ordinary for a tree to act as a roundabout? Maybe it is.
You can do nothing in Caverswall for hours, which is very pleasant.
