  • 5 star review  Went with a friend to sell and had a great time. Everyone is so friendly and there are so many great stalls including the meat stand, Barbie stand and Lego stand and a Burger van or two. We sold most of our stuff and just had a lovely time hanging out. Lots for kids to do, bouncy castles etc and great bargains to be had.

  • 3 star review  Large field with plenty of space for sellers and buyers to park. Neatly organised. Includes rides for children, food vans, toilets, first aid caravan, and regular business sellers as well as private persons. Usually has an abundance of stalls with baby clothes and products. Disappointing that there is now a charge to buyers (50p per adult) as well as sellers. Especially as there has been reports of increased number of cars damaged and broken into while parked here. Runs for about 6 months of the year, every other Sunday.
