  • Articles there were very beautiful, the colours and the designs were quite stunning. Unfortunately the prices were high so I couldn't afford to purchase anything. But it was lovely to walk around and look at them all.
  • Great information/ factory tour. Seeing the pot be shaped in minutes was awesome. Getting to understand the whole process from clay extraction thru to final glazing gives you a full appreciation of the work involved in the final pieces of art/ work. Nice cafe too
  • Driven past here alot, finally stopped in & it's definitely worth a look. A big gallery with a huge variety of pottery, plates, bowls etc for sale. You can even do a class here & make your own bowl! There's also a cafe on site.
  • Awesome selection & very beautiful. Could easily spend a fortune, well did! Definitely be back.
  • Love the pots here especially at sale time. The cafe area is lovely in spring,but maybe just a little slow at getting coffee and cake.
