Good selection of wool merchandise, but priced for tourists. Bus after bus made stops here daily. When the tourist buses arrive the staff is overwhelmed and the aisles become impossible to navigate.

Stopped here for lunch with my family after reading the menu outside which sounded lovely. Unfortunately, it turned out to be not at all allergy friendly. It's so frustrating when a cafe lazily says everything contains allergens, right down to the chips! I asked if...More

A mix of tourist souvenir shop with a cafe. There's a museum on wool, but we were not allowed in because there was a big group coming in. A popular stop for bus tours.
