A wonderful Aladin's Cave!

We hadn't been to The Packhouse for about four years, and had almost forgotten how much 'stuff' they sell! The place is a positive rabbit warren, and it's very easy to get lost... read more

Although this is positioned as an antiques shop and interiors shop, it really focuses on interiors, with very little in the way of antiques and collectables. However, a nice enough place, and if you already in the area to see the Barn or the Mill as antiques centres, may as well pop in to see what is on offer

Second time to The Packhouse and it just gets better, recently redecorated and with some of the "Tacky Bits" removed its a great place to spend a few hours browsing. The choice is enormous and whatever your taste you are sure to find something you like. Much to my bank accounts annoyance we found lots and could have bought an... More

If you are in the area this is a must do, it is rammed full of beautiful items and interesting things. It is deceptive as it houses more that it looks like it might and for those lovers of vintage both in reality and looks this is a must see

Went last week and though the place looks amazing it is really just rammed full with cheap reproduction tat mass produced in Tawain and China. Quality items are rare with the occasional upmarket Greengate from Denmark but in the main a big let down. Fig cafe though nicely laid out was exceptionally cold and every customer had coats or scarves... More

We hadn't been to The Packhouse for about four years, and had almost forgotten how much 'stuff' they sell! The place is a positive rabbit warren, and it's very easy to get lost, but a very pleasant place in which to do so. It's a delicious mix of antique, recycled, shabby-chic, repro and bang-harry-spankers, and if only I had a... More

We first came across The Packhouse some 8 years ago, when we were restoring a 200+year-old cottage and were looking for feature pieces of furniture in the 'shabby-chic' idiom, together with soft furnishings and detail pieces etc.- the whole shebang. I don't think I'd be misleading you to say that, over the 3-4 years it took to complete our labour... More

Not dissapointed yet again, 4th time I have visited this amazing place. Different on every visit. which all leads to the excitement. One could spend many hours in this place and not see it all. We looked around then had a lovely lunch at the Fig Cafe then another look around to select our purchases before late afternoon tea before... More

I went to visit the Packhouse today with wife and son. What a disappointment the cafe was. Firstly, before ordering I asked the lady behind the counter if the cafe accepted cards ... She confirmed that they did. She asked me to sit down and informed me that someone would be over to take my order. It was fairly busy... More
