Travelled from Kent to visit here today. If you love the author as much as I do it’s worth a visit. The village is very quiet but if you have lunch it’s a nice way to spend a few hours.

If you have children who love Dahl, this is a great place to visit. Lots of information and quite hands on. A good combination of fact, combined with Dahl's own fiction and Quentin Blake's drawings and hands on things for kids to do. My teenager...More
