We found this wonderful shop by accident as we were looking for the cliffs. It was marvellous. The welcome was warm and friendly, the gift items and knits are just fantastic. Very happy we stumbled upon this shop!

I stoppped and had a lovely chat with Pauline, and picked up a couple of beautiful scarves for gifts. The added bonus is buying at the source of a family owned business.

This is a nice stop to browse through the woollens (jumpers, hats, some gloves, some souvenir items) and/or have a cup of tea or coffee. Service is friendly, but they will let you browse as long as you need to, and they also know all...More
