So much to see and do here wander around all day so quaint like going back in time .... beautiful setting plenty of benches to sit and people watch then walk a little further. We visit every time we are down in Torquay. Pay to park all day very reasonable .

Lovely day out. Lovely to walk alongside stream (and sometimes in it!!) Nice to visit the craft centre and a lovely walk into the village. Visited the Drum Inn for lunch and was a perfect stop.

Lovely place to walk our dog. There are some lovely looking craft shops too but unable to go in because of having our dog with us. We went in the fantastic, dog friendly, Drum Inn to have a drink and something to eat instead.

Lovely place to walk. If the weather is not very good, even if it is, a visit to the courtyard is interesting with various crafts on offer and demonstrations often available. Open all the year. Car park (paid) near the courtyard. Road parking a nightmare.

Step back in time and enjoy this village with all it has to offer. Lovely thatched dwellings, artisan shops and the walk through the estate all add up to a really worthwhile trip. A short drive from the bustling sea-front takes you to times gone by. Plenty to spend your money on too with the craft workshops and a smattering... More

Lovely way to spend an afternoon, glad we visited. Enjoyed our walk, afternoon tea and a browse around a few of the shops that were open. The hand made chocolates were delicious
