  • A pretty sizeable selection of fossils and other gemstones with some hard to find types too. Of course it's not Ebay prices but this is the middle of the Lake District and is pretty well priced, plus you get to see the actual specimen. Worth a visit if you're looking for anything gem related.
  • Love the uniqueness and the gem pit is amazing! x
  • Nice little shop for all things rocky/fossily. Kids seem to like it a lot for the pebble pit and the dinosaur trail. Worth a little visit.
  • Well the fact we have been here 3 times says it all! My daughter loves this place and we can not come to the Lake District without a trip to the Rock Shop. Yes it's small but it's brilliantly done :)
  • Good if you are into rocks. There is a rock pit that kids can dive into as well.
