I visit here regularly with my dog (about once a month) and during the week it is quite a peaceful place to walk. Great with or without the dog.

Great day for all ages; good cafes and extensive walks. Good play area for children. Didn't get into Heaton Hall- too busy at the farm. Easy parking.

This little cafe really is what it’s name implies! A wonderful little place to stop for a tea/coffee and a home made cake, or even a savoury snack. Cosy and cheery; the staff are friendly and welcoming, the coffee and scones delicious! Need I say...More
