We stopped at the Laidhay Croft Museum for a cuppa and very nice it was. Lots of homemade cakes and snacks to choose from. Sit inside or outside depending on the weather. There is also a loo. Very friendly ladies are awaiting to greet you.

What an interesting place to visit so many bits of memorabilia loved the mannequin in the bed, somewhere to come and soak up the culture
