Look out for the infamous

FREE SHOP - where you can

pick up clothes, bedding

and other things that need rehoming. 

Our stalls offer rag rug making, spoon carving, making hay boxes, growing mushrooms and watching bees. 

We even have our own café this year, selling home-made cakes, tea & coffee.

Where we are:
We live through the enchanted woods, from the village green.
Or to the right of the teen space, if you have your back to the mansion house.
Or opposite crafts, going down and up the 'valley'.
