Eating & shopping
The café is a great place to eat and relax with the feeding troughs and cobbles being very much part of the atmosphere.
It's family friendly, with kids' lunchboxes and plenty to keep little hands occupied. Plus, fresh seasonal menus for tempting lunches and the homemade cakes and cream teas that we are famous for.
Are you a bookworm?
Our secondhand bookshop sells a range of books to suit every taste and budget. Manned and managed by our wonderful volunteer staff, it's usually open 11am - 5pm daily.
Fancy recreating Mrs Child's flower garden in your own back yard? Our secondhand bookshop also sells plants grown on site in peat-free soil by our expert garden team.
Looking for a quirky gift? Or maybe just a souvenir of a lovely day out? Our gift shop has it all. With a wide range of goods, from locally produced pottery to jams, books and toys, you are sure to find something that takes your fancy.
Many of our items are produced exclusively for us, so you won't find them anywhere else. We currently have some stock on sale too, so pop in for a bargain.
