Spotted a chocolate shop opposite the White Lion pub and mistakenly thought that Mark & Michelle Farron had moved the Old Bank House Chocolate Shop there.
There is a large selection of novelty shapes, luxury truffles, gifts, lollies, etc.

The hand made truffle workshop was brilliant, full of useful information and tips, and we had a go at making truffles to take home, which tasted awesome.
I only had a few minutes to grab some gifts for my loved ones, the handmade truffles were tempting me and I ended up spending quite a bit but it was well worth it.

What a lovely quirky shop great for gifts I bought my grandson a lovely blue t shirt with a Herdy sheep on and some herdy sheep egg cups.
AFter seeing about 6 millions sheep and taking pictures of most of them over a 4 week tour, it was fun to find this darling shop devoted to the little creatures.

Car park is free for customers which is a nice bonus if you’re after a quick browse around the village as well, but make sure you buy something from the shop and cafe to make up for the parking
Much better this year - came out with a bag of shopping this time!

Excellent bookshop

Rum & raisin great, but try the Christmas pudding variety for that Christmas feeling and taste, yes I know it’s still November but wonderful.
With a great selection of different flavours, sea salt being the best, it is perfect for holiday gifts to give to relatives.
