Called in on our way to the car park, really glad we did, they have some lovely items for sale and the workmanship excellent. Prices are high but we still bought a couple of things, as they are unique. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable

We were really impressed by the talent of the people who had created the objects in this gallery. The staff were very friendly and there were lots of beautiful and unusual things that, funds permitting, we would have happily bought, Well worth a visit.

We wondered into the gallery whilst exploring the village. It is simply full of amazing items from local artisans and we spent a good 20-30 minutes look at the diverse range of items for sale. Really fascinating

We stopped off here whilst walking the South West Coast Path - Abbotsbury Castle route (also found on TripAdvisor). It's quite a fascinating place, bigger than you might expect (particularly when you approach from outside) and crammed full of a huge variety of bits and...More
