  1. Lovely to have this information especially if like us we will be visiting the area for a weekend. However, the one thing we feel is missed out is whether places are dog friendly, as we often bring our dog on weekends away.

    We would be interested about places to eat and visit ie the Cambs Antique Centre ( we do not leave our dog in the car at any time).

    Many thanks

    1. I wish we could collate all of that information but, as a small, voluntary organisation, we do what we can.

      I would suggest that you check with the websites/facebook pages of cafés and pubs, email or phone them. At least we’ve been able to provide you with that information.

      Regarding interesting shops to visit… We think all of our independent traders are well worth a visit!
