Visited 21/05/15 What a cracking wee place!! Hosts were incredible. Warm welcome by Mrs Ernie made us feel at ease and welcome straight away. We then did a twirl on the potters wheel with great results. Ernie has the patience of a saint and is able to guide and help you in any way you need. I felt silly for... More

The first place we visited on our first day exploring Yarmouth and so glad it was. A warm welcome, tons of history plus a living working arts and crafts centre inside the medieval city wall. Informative, surprising and warm and hosted by Mr and Mrs Yarmouth, genuine locals who are passionate about the place and its history.

This unique slightly quirky venue provides an excellent insight into an important part of the history of the town. We booked a combined pottery lesson and tour of the museum (very reasonably priced) and we had a wonderful time. The lesson was fun and informative, giving you a go on the wheel and producing a piece of pottery to bring... More

Worth a visit, found out about it through Trip Advisor and I'm glad we went. My daughter loved doing something on the spinning wheel. Worth a visit! Don't miss it! The staff are very enthusiastic about the place and they make an effort to make sure you feel welcome and are well informed! Enjoyed our visit!
