  • Really beautiful old mill here in idyllic setting. Very nice tea rooms with usual fare. Good walks. You can hire rowing boats and punts in summer time.
  • Really pretty area, parking for 2.50 all day means you can have a look around the village which is lovely. Swimming in the river looks awesome, sadly was not equipped!
  • 1,000 year old mill and it offers a fab cream tea on the river bank with a pretty view of the building and river. Well worth a visit.
  • A regular place for me to go. It's lovely for an evening paddling,water sports and a great spot for walks or bike rides
  • Amazing treasure. Superb campsite. Great Cafe.
