Loved walking around this and seeing the quality of the furniture on display. The most interesting thing was the range of tools that were used to make the furniture.

I visit here often and love the cafe. They do the best soup! Also meals, cake tea etc. All hand made. Has a great view of The White Horse from the garden. Also gift shop and museum.

Kilburn is a picture post card village and the furniture making business originated by Robert Thompson (The Mouseman), in the village, makes a fascinating stop. Our guide was superb and the cafe excellent with very friendly service.
