bucolic Peddlers Village
How easy will it be to get a wheelchair around Peddlers village??
Lahaska Village is an area that is pretty spread out and is a little bit on the hilly side. The restaurant area is pretty acessible.
As Easty said it is spread out. The original or main section is centered on a lovely green and surrounded by historic buildings. They have added many new buildings which comform to the aesthetic as well as being more wheel chair friendly. They seem to put great effort into upkeep of side walks and access.
It may be harder for the one pushing the chair unless it is motorized?
My father loved Peddlers Village, I would wheel him all over. His favorite places were the various bars and restaurants. But we were able to acess many shops in the old section and all shops in the newer outlet section.
I don't recall going in the front entrance of the Cock and Bull, I believe we used the side entrance. This may have been simply because he loved the little tavern there.

There are only a few streets in New Hope (only four: Main Street, North and South, Bridge Street, Ferry Street and Mechanic Street) as well as cute little alleys and side streets all cobblestoned.
Bucks County Play House

AKA Peddlers Village
"Earl Jamison had a Farm..."
This was once a sleepy little village. Surrounded by pristine farmland reaching East to New Hope, North to Solebury, West to Doylestown and South to Buckingham. This area of Pennsylvannia now offers some of the best shopping in the mid-Atlantic.
Lahaska itself is known for Earl Jamisons "Peddlers Village" a tour de force of marketing ingenuity. This destination offers charm, wit entertainment, bucolic vistas, historic views and oh yes...shopping.
The surrounds offer all historic sites associated with Washington & his Crossing of the Delaware as well as one of our founding fathers and states namesake Willliam Penn. Also prevelant in this part of Bucks County are the many artisans that flocked to this beautiful area (pre mass urbanization) and the galleries and museums they show in.
"Earl knew which way the wind was blowing"
Instead of plowing over the beautiful old village and placing the typical strip mall of the time, he used the beauty and enchantment of what was there and expanded on it. In the midst of the rather high brow shopping center a mini-farm replete with exotic chickens is amazingly appropriate.
Lahaska is located in Bucks County Pennsylvania, between New Hope and Doylestown and near the Delaware River. Its only about 21 miles from Philadelphia. Bucks County was once a stagecoach stop between New York and Philadelphia. The County has so far been able to maintain some of its old world charm and you feel like you are stepping back in time. It is one of the three original counties established by William Penn in the 17th century and was named after Buckinghamshire in England, Penn’s ancestral home. Penn made his new home in Pennsbury Manor, on the banks of the Delaware River in the south eastern corner of the county.
This was a half day visit to this delightful area before driving on through Pennsylvania. The shopping was really unique in Peddlers Village and the countryside was just gorgeous.
