Thaxted is in the North Essex countryside, just eight miles from Stansted Airport and the M11. The shop is in the heart of the town on the High Street, with it's landmark Guildhall. Take a walk up the cobbles of Stoney Lane to the amazing Parish Church and Windmill and back down Fishmarket Street, its a lovely family day out.
After visiting the shop, head to the beautiful town of Saffron Walden. With lots of independent shops and places to eat, the market held in the square every Saturday has fabulous stalls selling fresh vegetables, fish, cured meats, olives, bread, fresh herbs and a lovely flower stall. Then head on to Cambridge, it's like being on holiday!
