Have visited here several times, always find something new to see. Lovely shops and cafe, also pub. Could easily spend a morning wandering round. Plenty of parking, and many areas are also dog-friendly.

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.

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 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.

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,
