Some items were attractive but generally very expensive leaving you to question who would buy it. On the plus side, the terrace cafe was nice!

In a beautiful building in Bovey Tracey. Some lovely items that have been beautifully crafted but extremely expensive.

First visit and very impressed. Lots of interesting pieces of art. Not cheap by any means, but for that special piece, well worth browsing. Good terrace restaurant with snack lunches.

Lovely gallery with lots of local artists work on show. Little coffee shop. Not really much for younger kids.
