Set in a beautiful old watermill with the river flowing beside it, next to a well priced car park this is a totally enjoyable experience. We've been 3 times now with either Friends or family and have never been disappointed. The displays change each visit and although I am not an art lover as such, they always surprise me and... More

A most enjoyable place to visit when you are in Bovey Tracey. I visited twice in one week, and I come all the way from Cornwall..! on the second visit I invest in a nice piece of ceramics, there is something for everyone here, the range of prices go from cheap to very expensive.

This exhibition centre really is a cut above the usual visitor attraction. Each time we've visited there are different diplays on show, beautifully lit and nicely laid out. If you like anything in the jewellery, bronze statue, ceramics, felts, paintings, leatherwork, glass or woodwork fields, then you'll enjoy a visit here. The cafe is to be recommended too with excellent... More

I had often driven by the sign on the Newton Abbott road for the Guild, and had wondered what it was. If I'm honest, I wasn't expecting much as I hadn't heard many people talk about it before. Anyway been for the 3rd time today in the last few months, and this is a really interesting place to go. Firstly,... More

This was our second visit. There is a pleasant cafe upstairs (which we didn't use) but the menu looked nice and the prices reasonable. The craft wares on display and for sale are all locally made and include art, furniture, jewellery, furniture, clothing etc. Some nice pieces and we would recommend a visit.
