If you like a relaxed atmosphere look no further. Almost felt like we were visiting an old friend. No Pressure to buy anything just an overall feeling that you we're very welcome to browse for as long you like. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

A fab shop selling gifts, and books, and also a tea room in the back room. What a find, and a great idea. Would go back as my wife loves tea and books.......and the lady behind the counter was witty, and very friendly.
