A recent visitor working on his family tree has got in touch to comment as follows:

“We [found] your Church and what a wonderful place that is. If ever a church reflected the affection and care of the parishioners All Saints tops the poll. The kneelers were amazing, such time and expertise, and the place was redolent of a bygone age. We also found your pub and the village shop, and all we can say is that those who live in Minstead must bless their good fortune. The place has charm in spades, and we were so very happy to have found that the place where our ancestors came from is as it is. Thank you.”


Calling all groups in Minstead – We would love to invite more committees and groups utilise the shop as their community hub. You are welcome to use complimentary, tea included. To book, please email heidi@minsteadvillageshop.com
