What kind of shops can I find here?

A stroll around the town is a world away from the traditional high street, with hidden lanes and cobbled streets perfect whether you’re on the hunt for the perfect item or just browsing. From the array of antique stores you can find treasures and trinkets, while homeware boutiques offer ceramics, candles, gifts, soaps, home decor accessories and so, so much more.


The town has a strong food offering, with shops specialising in fresh, artisan fare such as a traditional butchers, a bakery and the Hungry Guest delicatessen with its dedicated cheese room, as well as a monthly farmers market featuring selected local producers, and of course welcoming cafes and restaurants.
