We visited the Blake end Craft by just driving pass & thought we would call in .A few interesting shops there, but the one that caught my eye was Bijou Dolls Houses & Miniatures. A great little shop for miniatures & the lady was very friendly. Unusual little treasures. Worth a look at if interested in miniatures. Enjoyed our visit.... More

There are several shops here but none are really craft shops; there is a farm shop, haberdashery, antique shop and other things for kids that don't interest me. On the whole not worth visiting.

We stopped out of curiosity when driving past and thought it worth spending an hour or two browsing round the craft/retro shops. If you want something special and made by hand, or some local produce (honey for example) and want to spend a pleasant hour or so wandering around, then this is worth a visit. We bought some greeting cards... More
