“A beautiful place to visit, whether it’s a family wander or a stroll with the dog. Preserved history from the sadly culled Long Melford line, with the existing station building and platforms still in situ. The views from the castle are amazing looking over Clare and beyond.”

“Amazing place, it has it all from great walks, play park for the kids and a cafe that offers fantastic food and drinks, let alone the beautiful village to explore.”
