The owners were most... More

What an amazing place we discovered on holiday. Our children love crafty activities and we thought it would be a quick 10 minute session on a potters wheel. On arrival we were made so welcome. Karen and Ernie the owners make you feel part of the family. The pottery experience and activity is just out if this world. The children... More

We booked through Groupon for four people including 10 year old Lydia. We all really enjoyed the fishing museum, and the history telling. The favourite part of course was the pottery where we each made a nice item to take home and decorate. Ernie was a fantastic tutor. Thank you for all the stories and history lessons.

Mr childs lets you watch as he works the kilns and creates masterpieces of pottery. The children also get involved with a quiz and can make small pottery animals. Very friendly and... More
