Description
Horningsea is the newest member of the Scotsdales family – a family friendly centre which we’ve been busily developing and improving since we took it over in 2013. Just like Great Shelford and Fordham, Scotsdales at Horningsea has its very own bright and airy Sunflower Café that’s recently been expanded into a larger space as well as a large seasonal section.
