“Worth a visit!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Good place to visit if you are in the area, but not worth a long journey. Pick your time to visit as it can get very crowded, although there is plenty of overspill parking.

The riverside setting is very pleasant and there are shops selling touristy type things and home goods as well as an antiques section. The cafe can get busy.

“Wonderful place to visit”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

This place has everything. From lots of individual shops to a tea room, cafe and a pub. The pate and toast that I had for lunch was delicious. There are walks that you can take, and even a river trip at certain months of the year. The whole place has a really good feel about it, and I look forward to making another visit in the future.

“Great place to visit”

Great scenery, fantastic place to wander round and have a picnic. There are also shops, as well as course the music festivals. The boat trip is also interesting.

“A pretty location, but basically retail.”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

If you happen to be passing, it might be interesting to browse, but I don't think it's worth making a special trip, unless you're short of things to do,

“Good place to visit”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

A delightful set of old buildings cleverly converted into interesting shops, with lots of things to tempt a lady, as my wife can confirm!

Very Good!!
