  • An eclectic mix of specialist shops and a wonderful cafe, housed within the old carriages of a stream train. You'll have an absolutely delightful time. Amenities include an outdoor childrens' play area (not covered), and wheelchair-accessible restrooms in Carriage 7 (behind the antiques shop)
  • I didn't visit this place but it's important to mention that opposite it there is a lavender field and while blooming it looks fantastic. Park your car, cross the road (need to be careful and traffic might be heavy) and take great photo. For free! No need to pay like at the lavender farms.
