  • Very unusual attraction on the edge of town, walkable by following along the river and then using the road signs. A variety of single storey buildings covered in glass/ pottery shards and walled country cottage gardens. Best to go early and avoid public holidays as it's long and narrow, small buildings and would easily get crowded. Very helpful/ informative curator/ ticket manager.
  • Lovely place to visit for fans of naive art. Nothing is really around so be sure to bring some food and drink if you plan a break there.
