Pleasant setting beside river. Two different eating places with outdoor seating. Plenty of cheap parking. £1 in 2018. High end clothing, lovely kitchen shop, Dartington glass, stationery shop and local food and drink. There is also a craft centre and knitting wool shop.

I always do my Christmas shopping here and everyone I buy for is always very pleased and tells me how good I am with my gifts. Although being quite expensive with practically everything there it’s still worth the spend despite how crazy the prices are

Not your usual retail outlet. A really nice range of small businesses from arts and crafts, bespoke food, glassware clothes shops. No national chains though many quality branded goods. Nice pub eating option too. Well worth a visit.

Pleasant grounds, plenty of parking and a variety of shops. Sadly since my last visit the book shop has shut. It’s a shame that the shops don’t prove more popular as there is a great selection of locally made goods available.

It’s a typo. One shouldn’t have to pay ‘to park’ with the inflated shop prices .The trust live in a bubble .
