Set within a beautiful farm setting, this Pottery and Cafe offer a relaxing atmosphere with lovely hosts Rosemary and Donald. Cannot praise them and their venue highly enough. They are warm and welcoming and offer the chance to design and paint your own pottery. There is a great range of items to paint, from ornaments to large bowls. I take my daughter every year, and we are building a nice collection of unique mementos of our holidays in Islay. If you want to have a glazed piece it is best to visit a few days before you are due to leave so that it will be ready in time (Rosemary does offer p&p too!)
If you don't have time for this you can do items with acrylic paints which can be sprayed with fixative and taken away (they won't be waterproof but they still look great)!
Rosemary is so helpful and patient! She offers excellent instruction and is especially good working with children.
In addition, she has some absolutely stunning pieces of her own design for sale in the pottery.
The cafe offers lovely home-bakjng and also has some outdoor seating for fine days.
Highly recommended if you want a relaxing and creative afternoon with the bonus of great company and a special memento of your visit to the magical island that is Islay.
Five stars just don't do this place justice!
