This is the home of the Alice's Bear Shop story books. You can often find the Author and illustrator Rikey Austin working on her next project or meet some of the real life characters from the books. Come visit the Teddy Bears and Dolls in the Teddy Bear Hospital. If you have time they'd just love a get well soon card. We also have a large selection of Vintage and collectable bears as well as many lovely soft toys.

Great price, Good job, my small friend is much happier now!

My lovely mouse, known as 'Mousey' had a problem with the stuffing in his legs- it had gone into his feet and his legs needed re-doing. I went to Alice's bear shop and teddy bear... read more

This shop was a lot smaller than I anticipated it to be. Also doesn't stock my favourite brand of bear; Charlie Bears - which was a bit of a disappointment although I knew this before I entered the shop. The hospital is really sweet how it is set up. It's worth going in just for the 'awwwww' factor! Was a... More

My lovely mouse, known as 'Mousey' had a problem with the stuffing in his legs- it had gone into his feet and his legs needed re-doing. I went to Alice's bear shop and teddy bear hospital, and I left him with them for 40 minutes. When I came back, his legs were just right- not too stiff, not too spongey... More

I delight in this shop and hospital, everytime I visit Lyme. This time I bought down a Canterbury bear, with two holes in his paw. I am delighted to say that after a brief admission, all is well. I also added another special bear to my own collection, Ting, one designed by Rickey herself. The shop is a treasure trove... More

Thank goodness for Ricky and Becky, and the mail order and walking delivery service. So long ago, I bought my beloved ted Johnathan, to be restored, after a bad restoration experience in London; when I laid eyes on my lovely bear, newly restored, that was it. No more London restorers, I would wait for my holidays in Lyme. Other bears,... More

I always pop in here when visiting lyme. I love looking at the antique bears rehoming section, especially rewarding when I find one similar to mine and see the prices! I also love looking in the bear hospital at the back. If you look hard you can see the "patients" individual beds, complete with notes on the end with their... More

My daughter took in her beloved Bertie for a bit of TLC and many years of cuddling have taken the stuff out of his tum. They were so sweet with her and made her feel important. Bertie was fixed within 2 hours and returned to one very happy owner. I thought the shop could have had more products on offer,... More
