Devon Guild of Craftsmen just by the bridge on the main road, Free entry for exhibits you can purchase. Craft making sessions also going on inside. Tea /coffee as well outside. A pleasant place to visit.

Had coffee and a sandwich in the cafe but it wasn't anything special. Wouldn't t return. The shop wasn't very interesting apart from the wood department. Some lovely pieces of furniture.
