“Cute little town setting”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

This was a cute little town setting with 30 shops but the shops were so extremely small and it was so crowded that it was hard to get in and out an enjoy it. It was cute though and we enjoyed it for something to do. We aren't really into the type of shops that were there but if you were you would really enjoy it.

“We loved Kitchen Kettle Village”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

This was a great tourist shopping village, we went on a buggy ride, browsed and bought things in the shops, sampled the jams and jellies, it was all wonderful. There is lots of parking and the ground nd shops are very well manicured.

The Country Life Store was amazing, very homespun in style and we bought lots of things to take home, the staff were friendly and helpful.

We went back the next day to pick up a few more items before we left. Can't wait to return!

I love Kitchen Kettle Village but it is not something we do each trip. We are up there about six times per year though. We probably go to Kitchen Kettle on about 1/4 of our trips to the Lancaster area.

“Nice place to visit”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Kitchen Kettle is a nice place to go if you want to sample everything, so go hungry! Prices can be a little higher than some competitors across the road from it, but it's a tourist attaction so that's why. Overall we enjoy going there each year when we're in the area.
