We were very surprised to find that most of this was shut on a Tuesday in school holidays. Whilst I appreciate that their school holidays hadn't started yet, I would expect a shopping village to have regular opening hours. We didn't bother to go back.

It’s truly a lovely place to see the passion in the people when creating their work and are happy to chat with visitors. Nice light area to have a bite to eat too. Well worth a visit if you are in the area!

This really is a brilliant little place, free parking, though not many spaces (I think 25 approximately with a couple of disabled) so please don't use their carpark to go off into the forest or village. Great selection of shops from hand made pens to...More
