Dartington Cider Press Centre is a former apple pressing mill which was converted into an upmarket shopping attraction many years ago.  The individual shops are located in the various traditional stone buildings which gives a village style feel to the place.  There are an array of shops and galleries at Dartington and all sell a vast range of gifts and products which are both stylish and unusual.  Dartington Crystal is also sold from here, alongside a great selection of studio glassware. There seems to be everything from farm foods to home furnishings and a great range of ethical, fair trade and organic goods.

The atmosphere around the centre is very relaxed with people sitting at picnic tables, wandering through the woods and you can even take your dog.
