Every now and then i babysit little Marley and when he's in the big smoke, i like to take him out and about with me. I spend most of the time hovering outside shops and coffee / cake shops, wondering if i can go in or not.

The Longhouse is full of character, with exposed stone walls, log burning fire & flagstone floor.
