Very happily surprised at the quality of my visit. A good variety of countryside/woodland walks to suit all ages. A great cafe to suit all tastes. A nice selection of local craft shops on site as well. Good sized car park.

The centre has wonderful woodland walks as well as a lot to learn about wicker making. Try the museum, the retail outlets and the cafe. In the Summer events are laid on for children and there are also stunning views across the Somerset levels.

Well worth a visit, but be aware that the prices for willow artefacts are quite high. Reasonable food, lots to see, and a fascinating history video.

Yes, there are several walks to go on, although the paths are tarmac but are well compressed gravel. You might need to push a bit but the kids will love it lots to see and look for
