what a fantastic little place to visit, tucked away so many people miss out. Full of small units the include everything from The Big Comfy Bookshop to Sergeant Bilko Museum. It is full of friendly vendors and hidden treasures. Well worth a visit.

The car park is like wasteland across the street. I'm sure there was a guarantee that it was safe. I don't drive though. There may be extra space for bikes at the village, as i think i saw a few dotted around.
