Lovely village..myself and hubby loved it....but my two children thought it was boring being so young and couldn't wait to leave. .good place to visit when weather isn't brilliant .. a afternoon couple of hours visit is more then sufficient time spent there. .

Had coffee and cake here. Nice setting, a bit pricey for their cakes but isn't that the story for anywhere you buy cakes in this country.

The village is quaint as is the court we thought OK but not amazing. The grounds are well tended. All very chocolate boxy. Visited many years ago and felt the same then.
