Chessell Pottery Barns is a family owned working pottery in the heart of the West Wight countryside - this complex of converted barns consists of a Decorating Studio where all ages can paint their own pottery, a beautiful Gift Barn selling Chessell Ware(our own pottery made onsite) as well as the largest range of Emma Bridgewater Pottery on the Island, as well as a great selection of toys, gifts and home made preserves, and the Courtyard Cafe, home of the Ultimate Island Cream Tea.The Cafe has won 'Best Island Cream Tea 2010/11 & 12' - using all local ingredients - scones baked fresh each day, served with clotted cream from Calbourne and our own home made strawberry jam, served on the pottery's own Strawberry Ware pottery in the sunny Courtyard, or sat by the fire on colder days. The cafe also serves light lunches, full Afternoon Teas on a 3-tier stand, and is now licensed to sell wines and local Ales. There are two four star holiday cottages onsite, so why not stay at the pottery, enjoy a cream tea on arrival and have a go at painting your own pottery during your stay!
