Helpful staff. Lots of brochures just what we needed as we are first time visitors to this region. Didn’t realise the area had so much to offer. Lady behind the counter gave us plenty of time to help plan some days

We arrived later than their opening hours and initially were disappointed - until we spied a chest in which they store large well-stocked bags of local information. We loved reading through all the things to see and do. Thank you for giving this thoughtful service!!

Used them a few times. The lady was excellent at helping us find our accomodation, telling us what was opening for dinner on particular days and recommending some woodturning in the local area. A pleasure to deal with
