Very nice place to visit with a lot of things to see in small old houses. It’s also next to a gorgeous park. Perfect for visiting during summer - autumn.

This is a small museum to walk through, no entry charge. There is a range of shops and houses to visit. The cafe makes good sandwiches and cakes.
