We had a lovely lunch. It was very busy in the cafe but the waitresses were pleased to help. The shops are interesting to browse.

Moored at Bridge 18 for lunch here and its an absolute gem. Individual shops, lovely setting with plenty of seating. Darlingtons was excellent for lunch.

Different place to shop with a variety of small shops to browse, some of which have quality items as opposed to the run of the mill outlets found in most towns. Also lovely cafe which serves good food at reasonable prices . Worth a visit.

This is a fine place to visit for quality objects and some unusual items. Food shop and sweet shop too. We ran out of time to see everything so will be making another trip soon.

Popped in for a quick visit .....! Managed to lose two hours wandering around the quaint shops and a cheeky visit to the tea rooms where the scones and hot chocolate were not a disappointment. Hidden gem. A must visit.
