I won't insist on realism in a fantasy game, but on some degree of plausibility.
Have you ever seen an actual medieval village? There are still a lot of them left in Europe.

A village of 7 buildings typically doesn't have fortifications. But in this village there seems to be a ruined tower, which in the past was the place of safety for villagers. And it's rather typical for small medieval villages, that buildings are not adjacent on each other.

The farms would surround the village, but not on immediate vicinity. Because a farm needs *fields* to produce food.
