We had long wanted to visit but thought it was too far. In fact only a couple of hours drive from M6, and well worth the trip. We spent a whole day at it, fortunately a bright day as village looks its best then. Mixture of styles but enchanting rather than kitsch. Entry reasonably priced with a short guided tour included. In fact shops and everything else all seemed fairly priced, but not need to spend anything more beyond entry. Liked the lack of car parking charges. Hotel is refurbished and a nice stop for coffee or tea. Views across estuary are stunning. A place to walk around. Lot of Rhododendrons. Good even if you have not heard of the Prisoner, recommended.
