Opera House
“Visit the Opera House not only for its Opera Festival during the month of October, but for entertainment all year round. Even a visit to our friend, Tricia's Starview Cafe on the third floor to take in the view and her fabulous food is an absolute must. Reasonably priced and excellently prepared by her own hand right after you've ordered. (Her cakes, baked on the day and not before, are sheer delight!) Tell her Maggs and Karl said Hi.”

“This is a beautiful Elizabethan House that is still being restored. The grounds are peaceful and pretty with a fairy and Gruffalo wood walks. There is a play area, nice cafe, artisan workshops and for a small extra cost family archery with tuition. A lovely place to take children and adults of any age and it only costs the car park fee to get in.”
