Lovely little village

A charming village and a nice way to spend a few hours...make sure you stop by Cows! The artisan market is also a great visit.

Heard this was a village that recreated Ann of Green Gables, but this was changed this year. It is now a collection of little restaurants and some overpriced shopping. Interesting, but nothing out of the ordinary.

A strange collection of little shops and a couple of eateries. Not really amounting to much, but provided us for a place for breakfast when we arrived in town. If you are in the area, it's free and cute for a wander round for an hour or so. if not don't fret - you haven't missed too much

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but this "village" is just a bunch of stores in old buildings. The school LM Montgomery taught in is here, as well as a church she attended while visiting relatives. We had a coffee and were on our way.

Not really sure how to describe this tribute to L.M. Montgomery as it was just group of shops which happen to be in old houses. Best bit were the oyster's and that is all.

Even though we knew it had changed, we came to hear Mike and Leon. Just a place now to eat, like Cavendish Boardwalk. We used to spend at least two days here; now it is difficult to spend even 30 minutes. Too bad you didn't retain some people in costume to add character. Even the guy who used to take... More
