A very good find on the road directly behind the Se (Cathedral). A quirky shop that is based in the former royal stables and is now filled with incredible handmade and artisan products that you won't find in many other tourist shops. The range of...More

An outlet with a huge range of well priced local products; mostly made by individuals rather than mass-produced. Jewellery, pottery, hats, bags, clothing, soap etc that because of their individuality, you generally won't find elsewhere. The setting is quite eclectic, just watch your footing on...More

Fascinating original old stables beautifully preserved. Beautiful arts and crafts- top quality and such variety that it's difficult to choose. But we managed and very happy with our choices. Very helpful staff. Beware sloping floor

This shop has some great items from local artists and craftsmen - but that's only part of the reason to stop. The building itself is well worth a visit. The shop is in a very old stable - and the original stone feeding troughs have...More
