“Visit went well as normal. Bought some items from Abraxas of the best quality & then had tea & scones (yum). This shopping centre in the countryside is brilliant.”

“Darlingtons was a delight. Lunch was served by very good attentive staff. We had a light lunch which was beautifully presented. We will be back soon. Thanks.”

“Fabulous location, on the A5 and five minutes from the M1. Simply Salvaged is my personal favourite ( there’s lots of different shops, kitchenware, dresses, gifts, garden) lots of different traders in this shop all under one roof. Antiques, collectibles and crafts. You can wander round here for two to three hours. Beautifully laid out and all the usual ‘COVID’ precautions are taken, hand gel, distancing etc. Cafe on site.”
