“This village is far out but SO lovely if you pick a good day. It is incredibly quaint and the most exciting thing they have is a rope museum (surprisingly interesting) which tells you about the pace of life. A wonderful place to potter about, the crystal shop being a favourite of mine which you can pass a lot of time in. It’s also tucked away amongst hills so the drive is lovely and scenic.”
