You can not get in the tearooms and too many shops upstairs - only good shop is the lady who runs the lovely pet gifts and the young man with the jams etc opposite

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.

After visiting the onsite tea rooms we went for a wander around the little shops which are very quaint and all different from one another. There are furniture, pet, gift style and cookery shops. There's also ample parking.

A little different to your normal shopping centre. Some really interesting little shops. You can get anything from food to furniture. Great place to get a quirky gift for that difficult friend.
