A tranquil and beautiful place, lovely tearoom and interesting craftsmen/women at work. The gift shop has a lovely range of gifts to suit most pockets including beautiful handmade glass jewellery.

the parking was very cheap and a long walk up the the house and very little to do only a glass blowers shop and a few other shops ... a blacksmith that did very little and a rubbish childrens play area that only had 1 swing and a very unsafe climbing frame

Cream teas in the outdoor tea shop are very good value for money.If you are lucky you will catch a wedding in the quaint little church next door. Excellent shop selling hand blown glass in unusual designs and every colour of the rainbow. Horse and trap rides go regularly from the village if you don't fancy the uphill walk.

Plenty to wander about looking at. Craft workshops such as glass blowing to watch, shops to browse in and nice rose garden and a wild garden too. Nice to walk back through the park and have a cream tea in the village.

Brilliant. Old craft shops, snacks, good parking, picnic spots, and a very nice walk. If you like walking try walking from the main road and follow the country path instead of the road. It takes about 15 mins and follows a stream

It's a lovely scenic place and the countryside/gardens are wonderful. We were a bit disappointed that there were few of the craftspeople about and therefore no displays of work going on
