The Dovecot Gallery, Styrrup
If its the run up to Christmas, this local art gallery will be open. Well worth a visit. See www.dovecotgallery.co.uk
Goachers Fruit Farm, North Wheatley
If its summer, it's a real treat to go and pick your own cherries from the tree. Strawberries, raspberries and other soft fruit is also fantastic. See www.goforgoachers.co.uk.
