    A fantastic day out to St Albans. We had a really lovely time looking at all the fabulous architecture & the Cathedral.& Abbey. Work was started on this on the 10th century. What a splendid Cathedral & Abbey. A most enjoyable visit.

    By owning a dog who has lots of energy it is fabulous having Heartwood on our doorstep. I only usually visit in less busy times, so very early and in the week. I love to see the landscape and nature change through the seasons. Great place for birds and wild flowers. My nature sanctuary.

    This review is about the Bread Making Experience in The Bakery, not the mill.

    A great day in the company of 5 others, gaining experience from Master Baker Steven.

    Using fresh yeast, with a variety of flours including a sourdough mixture, we made seven different types of loaf, including tear-and-share focaccia, mini wholemeal, cheese & onion, cottage loaf, baps, orange rolls and finished off with making a deep crust pizza.

    Covid restrictions has meant that there is no break for lunch until the end of the baking, although there's plentiful tea/coffee as required, with tasty morsels provided in the way ofan Eccles cake, Chocolate Brownie and a gingerbread person(!).

    Not sure on cost as this was a birthday present.

    Courses are run a coupe of times a month, on Mondays.

    Well worth the experience.

    Outstanding Garden nursery. My first time visiting as new to the area. Plant choice, garden accessories etc. are amazing. But what makes this place is their staff who were absolutely superb. From check-out to cafe to all the different areas in the nursery - it was a 5 star experience. My Mum really appreciated the attention and help. A special mention to the gentleman in the cafe, the lady in the outdoor lighting area and the ladies in the indoor plant area. My only complaint is that I only went in for a £200 budget but doubled It! That said, their products are quality and I certainly will be a multiple repeat visitor. Do you do discounts for repeat customers?!

    We were visiting friends in North London and was looking for somewhere to go for the day. We wanted somewhere both inside and outdoors, just in case the weather was wet & windy.

    We found this gem by looking on the road map (just off Junc 22 on the M25). We can't praise this museum enough. All the volunteers are very friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. It was a lot bigger than we had expected (reading other reviews). The long road you have to go on to get to the entrance was also fine (again, some dubious reviews about it's narrowness).

    The exhibits are displayed well with lots of interesting information. We didn't know much about the de Havilland aircraft & family, but came away feeling that we had defiantly learnt something that day.

    The café, gift shop and especially the cat (Gerry?) are worth a special mention. We have been recommending a visit to friends if they ever find themselves in London Colney.

    After hearing about Willows I booked for myself and my nearly four year old to attend the Easter event. The night before we went I decided to look at reviews and was a little worried it would not be great. However, we had a wonderful day. There is so much to do and in our six hours there we still had not done everything. The staff were enthusiastic, friendly and helpful (all bar one manning the slides in the soft play area who clearly would rather be anywhere but there). The animals mostly looked very well cared for although I was a little shocked to see ducklings in what can only be described as a tiny glass fronted box. They did not look very happy or at all comfortable and their ‘box’ did not look overly clean. My daughter had a wonderful day and enjoyed herself at Willows very much. We would definitely visit again.

    The winding lane that draws you towards Shaw's corner feels like being reeled into the place by G.B. himself. The guided tour was outstanding, far more revealing and interesting than we anticipated. A stroll around the garden finished off a most pleasant morning. An excellent example of what the national trust do best.

    How amazing to find that this wonderful signal box has not been destroyed like so many other great railway structures from so called improvements. A marvellous insight into mechanical signalling. Brought back so many memories of my time in Abington Box on the West Coast Main Line between Beattock Summit and Carstairs Junction. Very Happy Days!!

    We visit this market regularly. Whether you want some cheap vegetables or a specialist item this is the place to go. Friendly early in the morning and great deals after 4pm.

    I was very pleased to discover a free car park next to the River Lea virtually in the centre of the village. It is signposted just off the High Street.

    I discovered a couple of maps at the old railway station which I would definitely recommend a visit to. There are trails around the village itself as well as trails a little further out of the village into the countryside and surrounding areas.

    There are lots of different building to discover within the village and I particularly enjoyed the Crinkle Crankle Walls and community garden.

    It's a very picturesque village and well worth a visit.
