Fantastic hotel for a quiet week away. Right on the beach with the gorgeous Persian gulf sea that is so warm you can spend hours floating or swimming around in it. On the island there is only about 4 hotels at the moment as the area is in its infancy. All the hotels are spread out with not a shop... More

To appreciate this shop you have to know how much these products sell for in usually high end shops. There is a section in there near the till selling full price stuff. Avoid that section. Go to the clearance and have a root about. The best buys are the non labelled packs. You will get £20 worth of candles for... More

The outlet us such good value and there are present ideas and really something for everyone. This really is a lovely shop with a small selection of greeting cards, gift bags and jewellry. Well worth a visit.... More

I visited this factory 15 years ago and was a bit concerned that I wouldn't enjoy it this time round. I was pleased to see the train is still in situ although most of the rest of the shop was unrecognisable to me after so long. I needn't have worried though and spent an enjoyable hour or so perusing the... More

Visited last week and found many good value items available in the shop. Cafe next door very good with reasonably priced home made fare. This place is just for the purchase of candles and is not a shopping centre, and there is little else of interest in the area other than the glassworks at Ulverston, which is just a few... More
