Always worth popping into here when down in this part of the world. Some great craftsmanship. Wood, jewellery, ceramics and books. Just nice to be here and enjoy.

I had quite high expectations of this place but it didn’t grip me. Interesting locally made craft items for sale at very high prices. Apparently the restaurant is excellent but we didn’t try. Could have been a redeeming feature. Others may find it more interesting...More
