Beautiful little village. More to see than at first glance. The drum inn for a meal and a relaxing drink and craft and gift shop

“Lovely in summer”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

There is no nicer place to take a stroll if the sun is shinning it is really beautiful. We like to just stroll through the gardens down to the fish lakes or stop and watch a game of cricket. You can also take a ride in one of the lovely old horse drawn carriages . The little tea shops are great for a bit of cake or a light snack. Well worth a visit.
