Interesting history and artefacts regarding the wool industry, excellent shop - with a wide range of good quality wool, sheepskin and leather products (mostly reasonably priced). Well worth calling, also a nice tea shop on site.

You are absolutely right, Jennifer H... You can't miss the sheep, and the heritage of wool in the Cotswolds. Many thanks for coming, and choosing, and buying woollen throws from us. Your custom ( and review) is much appreciated.

The cafe is very reasonably priced and the food is good quality. It's a nice place to browse, the clothes shop inside the old buildings with the original machines. Very attractive place and adds something special to the village
