  • Fairly small centre with a reasonable number of shops. A lot of the units had changed hands since my last visit, which was a shame as I had visited specifically to buy from one that has now gone. The large, well-stocked fabric shop is worth a look as is the wool shop. Outside of these, to be honest, I was a little disappointed with what was there. I will visit again, but will check out the traders online first as it's a reasonable journey to make if the traders got want to visit have moved on.
  • Spent an afternoon here and it's a nice place to visit. Varied shops, and very friendly owners & staff, but it needs a bit of oomph around the place. Good lunch at Timbers -once you adjust to the dim interior!
  • Came with my grandsons. Sat outside and had good lunch. Enclosed play area but not really young children friendly. Good selection of unusual shops deffinatley not child friendly. Went round the maze. Got very lost so had to use the map to help. This cost 1.50 and is only refundable if you don't open it. There is a competition running to find various animals in the maze and write down the animals named which was good fun. it.
  • Great place to find and buy unusual clothing, handbags and women's accessory collections. Unique boutique, in fact inspiration from inspiregems gift boutique.
  • The best part is when the great maze is open, a number of craft shops etc but pretty much sell what the rest sell. Great place to eat and sometimes has events running. Probably spend an hour at the most there unless your having dinner.
