This place was so good that we visited it twice during a weeks holiday! As a huge Art Deco collector I was not disappointed to find some absolutely wonderful bargains. We could not believe just how big it was inside, it just seemed to go on and on, you really need to leave at least a couple of hours to... More

A lovely way to spend a couple of hours, especially if you like antiques or items from times gone by. The centre is full of literally everything old, sectioned off into different bays , different sellers display their wares, some better than others as some are so full its almost impossible to see whats on offer!!! You can have a... More

Forget the negative reviews- if you want a pleasurable rummage through dozens and dozens of varied stalls and units then this is great. There are genuine antiques, collectables and bric a brac with a variety of prices down to the outrageously cheap. Critics say that its a glorified car boot sale (which its not!) and more expensive but I doubt... More

Always worth a trip on a wet day. Have had a few great bargains over the years. What has happened to the road and car park ? needs work. Please , please bin that horrible coffee machine it is a health hazard. The farmers shop is a nice addition but the prices are very expensive.

After reading some very negative reviews , I and my friends, had a thoroughly enjoyable few hours here. Maybe not quite as good as Bygone Times but still great fun to browse and see some of the very unusual items for sale here. Prices were mostly reasonable and whilst not a lot of genuine antiques collectors of all sorts would... More

A vast single story building crammed with inexpensive furniture and collectables. Not exactly antiques but fairly old items that brings back many memories. Can always find something to buy without spending too much money. A friend who visited thought it was more like a junk shop but if you like 'mooching' its brilliant, it probably is likened to massive second... More

Have visited this place a few times with my wife. The site complex includes a shop, small gift shop, brewery, and excellent food outlet selling quality meat, vegetables, wine/beer, and associated provisions. The shop sells a variety of household goods, toys, and clothes, all at very reasonable prices. The brewery is worth a visit in itself, offering twice daily tours... More

If you are actually looking for "antiques" then go to Brampton in Cumbria....you won't find many here. This place is like a car boot/charity shop/jumble sale combination, much of the stuff is mediocre, reproduction or just unwanted tat. Years ago this had proper stalls offering genuine vintage and antique items but these stallholders have gradually gone. It's similar to Bygone... More

I am quite surprised by the negativity of some of the reviews of the centre. While I agree that you won't find an undiscovered Leonardo or a piece of Gillow furniture, it is worth a look. Regularly changing stalls, which do vary, there is always something browsing for. There are other attractions on the site, including a farm shop and... More
